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.

Poorly constructed, but does the job

Though I'm about to put them together, the name V-Light® Full Spectrum Clamp-on/Desktop Magnifier lamp and the word "quality" don't belong in the same sentence.

Though I'm about to put them together, the name V-Light® Full Spectrum Clamp-on/Desktop Magnifier lamp and the word "quality" don't belong in the same sentence.

Complaints:

- the construction is flimsy,
- the knurled screw at the base (the first thing you touch if you are going to use the base) feels as if it were cast in a hand-cut (and that's not a good thing) mold, with casting 'flash' around the mold line, as well as uneven 'knurls'
- the head does not like to stay in the position you want it in – at least not for long – and,
- the shield, in my particular unit, that covers the magnifying lens does not fit flush so that light leaks through when seen from above even when the shield is in the closed position.

There are a couple of flaws in the design rather than the construction, too:

- the fluorescent 'bulb' doesn't have a shade extending beyond (or even to) its edge – so even if it didn't 'leak light' with the light shield closed, about 1/4" of bulb shows around the rim, even though eye level, for me, is above the light fixture/bulb. This is can be distracting in a darkened room if the lamp is next to a computer screen.
- the magnifier has to be adjusted using 2 hands (one to move the 'unit' the other to loosen and tighten the screw) – there are other, more expensive examples which, I believe, accomplish this 'one-handed'.

Given all that, the lamp/magnifyer does do what it is supposed to and at an (appropriately) low price. Also, the lens on my unit is pleasantly free from noticeable distortion.

To summarize, if you are annoyed by chintzy construction and things that don't work quite as you might like, steer clear, but for the money it does do the job. I've decided to keep mine.

Great Light

By barbrann

Verified Buyer

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

Didn't take this light out of the Box until I went on a sewing retreat. I didn't think I needed it and loaned it to my roommate. She raved about it and ordered one that day. Needless to say I got it back and used it for the remainder of the weekend. Love it. Now I use it at home too.

Magnifier Lamp

By sugarbooger62

from Wheeling, IL

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

It is worth every cent I paid for. It reaches exactly where I want the light. The head does need stabilizing with an additional washer where it tightens, it slowly lowers itself and I have to pull it back up. I can live with that, considering the price.
