Comments about Studio Designs Swing Arm Lamp:
This light is used with a daylight bulb to overhang a light tent for photographing hand stamped greeting cards. The lamp stays in position once set, and the cord is an adequate length. The quality is better than I expected for the price. Since this is only used two - three times a week, and not daily, I did not want to spend and arm and leg. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The Lamp's articulation really helps when working with such a wide desk. I use it for whenever I am painting in the evening. The light never gets too hot, so you never have to worry about accidentally burning yourself. One thing i can say is that the base is a little tedious to attach, but other than that this lamp works like a charm.

If your table is flat, this lamp works well. If you pick it up to use in conjunction with a drafting table, you will be disappointed. No amount of modification or tightening to the screws or knobs at the hinges can get enough tension in them to prevent it from sagging under the weight of the lamp head itself.Additionally, there is no way to tighten the joint between the clamp and the base of the lamp - it simply slides in. Thus, on an angled table, it always orients itself with the lamp at the lowest point. Pretty frustrating.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Received 2 and both work great. I screwed the base to the top of each side on my large easel. They do pull down all the way (which many out there now have a stop that prevents the arms from pulling down level with the base). Nice tight movement, so when I point it somewhere, it stays without dropping.
So far, so good
I'm using these lamps as lighting over my kitchen counters in s modern kitchen renovation. They look great, swivel where I need them to be, and really light up a particularly dark corner. Easy to put together and easy to keep clean.

I just needed a small affordable swing arm lamp. This one filled the bill nicely. Hard to beat for the price!
Basic Desk Lamp
from Prospect, Ohio
I recently have ordered a new desk from this site, so I decided to order a nice desk lamp to go with it. The set-up was easy and the lamp rotates with ease. The bulb that it comes with is nice and bright. Although, my complaint was that when I was adjusting my lamp, it was pulled out of its clamp. Perhaps, there was something I did wrong or that's just how the product is. That doesn't phase my opinion of the product. It just makes me be careful with how I adjust it.

White Swing Arm Lamp 49650-1020 is great
from Bristol, CT
I have owned several varieties of this type of lamp. Eventually they all broke.. mostly due to the fact that the post at the bottom that goes into the clamp-on holder, is made of plastic, and it breaks off - rendering the lamp useless. I love this model because the whole frame is metal, including the bottom post - no more breaking off. It also has dual springs on the arms to keep your chosen angle in place. It is pretty sturdy. It is a great value.

These lamps are purchased for student use during a full year at RISD. They can take a lot of abuse but usually need replacement after one year. Not bad for the price.
