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:

This desk lampp is very versital. The compact design allows it to be used in fairlly tight spaces. The magnifiing glass feature is espesially nice and i wasnt even looking for that but have found many uses already.. The only thing that i would change is the location of the on/off switch.. it would be better if it were designed into the base or the head of the lamp as opposed to on the cor as it is currently. I was also a bit suprised that they are still using a round flourecent tube when with todays technologgy in LED lighting everything seems to be going in that direection

Love the V-Light

By Mike B

Verified Buyer

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

This versatile lamp is perfect for our home work desk/computer table. The fluorescent light is extremely bright but does not hurt the eyes at all. The weighted base is very heavy so it takes a lot to move it if it gets banged around. The clamp is strong. No way will the lamp come off regardless if you use the base or the clamp. It maneuvers great and stretches out nicely. The magnifying lens allows our old tired eyes to read anything with ease. At first the magnifier was a nice add on when buying this lamp. It turned out to be as important as the other features once we started using it. This is a great buy!!!
