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:

        After working for months without a magnifier, our office decided to buy this product to make our work easy. We were not wrong about the purchase. It has the lamp which enables you to see better in darker areas of the office. Great purchase. We are not having anymore problems with our vision because of this product. We process invoices, and it was very difficult to see the numbers, since the invoice was set to fit 1 page. A lot of times we had to use manual magnifiers to see the amounts on the invoice. With this magnifier were are hands free and the best feature is the bright light.

        Great light but with one problem

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

        Yes, I've turned into my dad. I needed this to work on things that my now older eyes can't see! The magnifier and light are just right. The circle light is very bright and just the right intensity for most of my projects and general lighting on my desk when not using the magnifier.

        The only problem is with the adjustment screw at the light--for which I only gave 4 stars. The whole unit adjusts very well to different heights and positions, but the adjustment by the light itself will not hold the light very well at certain angles. I could not get it tight enough by hand (know too small?) and had to use pliers to get it tighter to hold the light at the right angle. Picky I know, but seems that should be easier to adjust and also afraid it might not hold up over time--for now its fine.

        It has a separate on off switch not directly on the lamp. This is kind of nice for desktop organization.

        Although easy to assemble and bright, the body is clumbsy and not as flexible as I would have hoped. It is limited in it's possible "bended" positions.
