Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYDiva Throws off lots of light
I got this floor lamp to use while sewing. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to assemble. It is in 3 basic pieces. You screw them together. You have to pull gently on the electrical cord that will be plugged into the wall. This makes the unit sturdy, then you just add lights I used a 2 pak of Philips LED 12.5 watt bulbs, with an A shape medium base. Now I not only have a nice looking, bright light, but I am saving energy. I am getting another one of these lights. With two of them I can take great pictures of things I want to sell on E-bay.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by GeezerGeek Issues with assembly, but it's inexpensive and bright
OK, it's not beautiful. It's not hideous either. The main issue I have with this lamp is that when I assembled it, the bottom screw-in joint where you assemble the main pole would not screw in all the way. I can look over my shoulder right now and see the exposed threads from across the room. But it's purely cosmetic, and from a functional standpoint the lamp is fine. It gives good bright light, and the lower, adjustable lamp is very handy. Overall, it's good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cyansea Excellent product. Everything I expected.
Easy to put together. The base is heavy so it isn't sitting on the carpet on a slant. One of the reasons I bought this lamp is that the light switch is located near the reading lamp so it can be reached easily when I am sitting on the couch. The other nice feature is that the switch turns on 3 different lights or all the lights at the same time. It also uses larger bulbs than some similar lamps. The only minus would be that the lamp shades are not glass, but you can't really tell unless you touch the shades.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Henryr This is a good replacent for my old 300 watt halogen
I really wanted to get another 300 watt halogen but they are no longer made. I used two 150 CFG bulbs instead of incandescent and am very pleased with the illumination level and of course, they do not radiate heat like the old halogen or as would the incandescents. Also, the total wattage used is less than 90 so it is much more energy efficient. The only thing I miss is the dimming capability of the old lamp, but overall, I am very satisfied with this product.
