Would LOVE to have other options
By Scott R.
Comments about Testrite Studio Easel Light:
If you have to transport these lights around at all, as I do, they won't last a week before the can-to-neck connection breaks. I have to use duct tape to keep them properly aimed, which doesn't look great. With the testrite easels, these are the only options I have found, but would love to find another option that doesn't break and require duct tape rigging after 1 week. As it is, I've been using these for years and go through many of them for a weekly exhibit I have where all the art is on easels. This recent batch of 6 lights I ordered all came with oversized connecting hardware so they wouldn't even connect to the easels out of the box! Terrible!! I had to poach all the old parts off of all the old broken lights - which I have many of. The easels work for my needs and I suppose these lights do too, but they are not good quality and are definitely overpriced.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Testrite Studio Easel Light
from Los Angeles
A great addition to the Testrite #500 Aluminum Easel, and is the #1 reason I was considering the easel in the first place. The light can be adjusted and is just in the right place to light the canvas and your palette, but is not in the way between you and the canvas. No more shaded areas where you can't see what you're painting. I usually paint in the evening at home, poor light conditions in the room. This light is a life savior. Thanks to it, I can paint every evening, anywhere at home.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
It took some adjusting. Shade floppy. Tried to tighten nut
from Wellington, FL
Except it to be very helpful while painting.
This updates my previous review and downgrades the star rating.I've had this light for 4 years not. After 3 years of use, it broke at the same place the other reiewer said- where the neck attaches to the lamp shade. The shade should be upgaded and made a little deeper to accomodate newer style bulbs such as the spiral bulbs that are longer than the old incadescent. While it wasn't an overly expensive light, I would have expected it to last longer than it did. Now the light goes off randomly and i have to tap the shade to get it back on.e

Mine works just fine
from Oregon coast
I've used this for several months now on my Stanrite easel (which appears the same as the Testrite). I was tempted to buy a light that just clamped on so I could attach it to other things, but after reading their reviews I decided to get one that was made for my easel. I've encountered no problems with mine and am very pleased. It holds it's shape where I position it. I tend to work at night so I bought a color correct bulb to use in it. The cord reaches to the floor where I have it plugged into a power strip. If you used the easel top extension piece (not standard with the easel) you might have a problem with the cord length and need an extension cord.

Poor Build Quality
By SoCal Art Student
from Los Angeles, CA
The neck extension of the light is sturdy yet flexible, but, the lamp shade is poorly attached to the neck itself. My shade broke apart from the neck within a week and is currently being held in place with a putty adhesive.
