Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gibbs dim "halogen" lamp
Serviceable if carefully assembled, but the light is considerably yellower and dimmer than halogen lamps of a few years ago.

Apparently nobody makes a good tochiere anymore. It comes in multiple sections that you screw together. One of the threaded sections was crooked, so the lamp looks bent when assembled. I returned the lamp and bought a better 300W non-halogen one from a different store.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ann274 double trouble
I bought this lamp twice online. The first one had the middle section turned upside down, so there was no way to screw it together without undoing all the wiring. On the 2nd try, the base does not screw in properly; the lamp won't stand straight. I bought this same lamp 2 years ago, and had no problems with it--still works beautifully. I don't know what happened to their quality control!

I am impressed by the quality of product for the price. I like the smoothness of the dimmer/on/off switch. The lamp provides plenty of illumination. It has heft and doesn't look cheap.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bigD Good price
Assembly was straightforward but fit and finish are somewhat lacking. The original 200W bulb was completely inadequate for most purposes but that's because of govt. safety regs. The price was right but I should have spent a little more for a more quality unit. When you change bulbs be careful because mine broke on removal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SJ1 It works, BUT...
It was hard to assemble the pieces together correctly. And, I am very disappointed in the brightness. It comes with a 190W halogen bulb, but it's not even as bright as my other lamp with 150W bulb.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jahzara Great lamp for high placed dimmer
I like halogen lamps because they come with the dimmer installed at the switch, as opposed to a floor dimmer. Makes it great next to a bed to control the lighting with ease. Product was a bit of a pain to attach at the base; the pole didn't want to screw on straight and took several tries to get it right. Other than that, it was fairly easy to assemble. Also has a weighted base to prevent it from being knocked over as a fire prevention, which is a good safety feature for a halogen. It's looks are decent for it's price, as well. I installed a 300 watt bulb instead, to get added light.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by George Not an ideal purchase, nor experience.
One section of lamp was very difficult to screw to another one because screw threads weren't quite straight. Whole thing a little off kilter when standing up--had to put a shim under one side so it would stand straight. Light not as bright as hoped. Cheap washers between sections.
