I had two major concerns. First, my work desk does not have a standard table top to use a clamp. This lamp comes with a clamp (they all do ) but ALSO comes with a weighted base. I was concerned that the base wouldn't be heavy enough. Nice sturdy heavy base! Secondly, the illumination and magnification combined - AWESOME. That's the only way to describe the sensation of looking at a coin and then lifting the cap. This is a pleasure to enhance my hobby.

I purchased this lamp, at a great price, for jewelry making. The articulating arms are made of sturdy metal, unfortunately the rest of it isn't. As one reviewer pointed out, the weight of the head holding the bulb drops down, and will need another washer in the top adjustment screw. The other screw in the middle of the arm is fine.....so far.
The biggest problem is the plastic piece that holds the metal post, which inserts into the clamp-on piece, is breaking apart. Metal and cheap plastic doesn't go good together. I've had to put a piece of material around the post that sticks into the clamp to get it to stop leaning over. Eventually I will have to use the base, and it's rather heavy, and bulky, leaving little room on my workstation. One of the posts that connects the dust cover to the head snapped off. I used duct tape to keep it covering the magnifying lens. Again, cheap plastic. If manufacturers would quit using cheap plastic to cut costs items would last longer, but I guess that's a marketing strategy used to get people to buy more products.
I wouldn't exactly call it a full spectrum lamp. The light appears to be no brighter than an incandescent bulb. I bought a "full spectrum" lamp from Jo-Ann Fabric and it blows this lamp away when it comes to clarity. This really doesn't reflect on the quality of the lamp, since it's the bulb, not the lamp that is "full spectrum." Maybe if it was stronger than a 12 watt bulb it may have made a difference, but it can't be replaced with a higher wattage because it's not wired to handle more than 12 watts.

Comments about V-Light® Full Spectrum Clamp-on/Desktop Magnifier, Black:

I'm the author, co-author, or "ghost" of over 100 books. As I've gotten older my assignments have increased and my eyesight has gotten weaker. I decided to try a magnifying light but the ones I encountered all had a magnifying lens sometimes sold to hobbyists. There was almost no magnification for the bulk of the lens and a circle section in the center -- sometimes 2x and sometimes 3x but certainly not that much help.
This light is different. The basic light covers the area taken up by my notebook computer, a separate keyboard attached to the notebook, and the stacks of notes usually cluttering my desk. The entire lens magnifies, and though it does require regular cleaning (or maybe it's my desk that does), cleaning is little different from what I do with eyeglasses. I will likely buy a second light for an office I maintain in the City Club Building of Cleveland in addition to the one on my home desk.

An excellent lamp!

Comments about V-Light® Full Spectrum Clamp-on/Desktop Magnifier, Black:

I've been looking for a swing arm lamp for my work bench. I also didn't want to spend $30+ for a light. I was finding it difficult to not only find a lamp, but one that included the bulb.

Staples had what I needed. It also didn't help that I had a FANTASTIC COUPON, $30 off a $60 purchase. Yay!

Well written descriptions and nice photos added to my shopping experience.

Staples has an amazing selection of crafting items. Which made it really fun to shop.

I found the website easy to navigate and the suggest items were actually things that I would have wanted to look at.

Work light

Comments about V-Light® Full Spectrum Clamp-on/Desktop Magnifier, Black:

This magnifier light is compact and effective. It travels easily, because it folds up flat. The table base is quite heavy, which makes it stable for supporting the lamp, but movable to any placement on the table. The clamp also works, but often the table/desk edges won't hold a clamp securely. Also the clamp is not mobile, so the lamp can't be easily moved . All my employees use this lamp, and they are very happy with the light source and the magnification. The only weak spot is the small attachment plug on the base.
