When I received this I was excited because of the low heat and the HD lighting. There is a trick to installing the light bulb or you may have trouble with it. It has to snap in just right or it won't work consistently. My husband had to use his strength to snap it in. It took 2 or 3 tries and finally connected. It has worked ever since.
I am very disappointed with my light. I was so excited when it came in. I used it exactly one time. The next time I tried to us it, it flashed and that was it. It no longer works at all. Now I have to waste my time and return it. So sad!!! :(
Recently bought this light over the internet on Thanksgiving night. I read the reviews and thought to myself, "This wouldn't happen to me." i bought it and guess what; it is happening to me. I am a nail tech and as i was polishing a clients nails the light all of a sudden goes out. Fiddled with it for 3 minutes and then it comes back on. Now it is starting to be a continous problem. For no reason the light just shuts off. I read this on someone elses' review and hoped it wouldn't happen to me. But it is and I think there is some sort of defect with either the unit itself-maybe it gets to hot, or the light bulb. If anyone knows what the answer is please let me know.
I absolutely love this light. The clamp on feature I use for my sewing table, but can also take this to retreats and stand on the table if need be. The 30" arm is amazing! No need for anything else!
Received lamp today. Assembly was no problem and it worked for 5 minutes. Then heard a popping noise, bulb started smoking and a chemical odor emanated from lamp. Now it won't work at all and I am going to have to return it back to Joann.com.
I use this light when I am crocheting during the winter months. the ability to adjust the height and angle of the light allow me to crochet and not detract from my ability to watch a movie at the same time!!! No one in the room is affected by the light shining on my crocheting hands
I purchase 2 of these lights, which we use around our sewing and craft area. They are so good for the eyes when you have to work long hours.
This is a lamp that is just right. I can put it almost anywhere and work on my crafts. I am handicap so being able to adjust it to my work is great.
