Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rosie Nice, but lacks a specific OttLite feature.
This is a tall lamp and best used on a bedside table for reading, vs. on your desk, unless it is far away from you, or the bulb will be visible and will shine in your eyes. The BEST feature of the two other OttLites I have, both a desk version and a floor version, (in matte black plastic), is the ability to rotate the bulb shield so it is underneath the bulb versus on top of it - if you are reading and then decide to watch TV, you can rotate the shield so you still have light, but it's pointing upward, which provides a nice ambiance. This is a good light, otherwise, and is stylish with a good weight and an acceptable footprint. The bulb takes a while to turn on and has the sound and behavior of fluorescent lights seen in movies (bathroom light in "Blade Runner", for example).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gail Looks good, bad lightening.
the light first attracted me to the nice sleek clean look but as far as lightening goes, not so good.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bobbybobo Poor product quality
The whole thing feels very cheap, and all the joints are poorly put together. I understand you get what you pay for, but this really feels like a piece of junk on my desk. Get the real Brazo lamp once and for all, this is just a cheap imitation.

My first line shorted out after 18 months of daily use. The manufacturer re[placed for shipping only.
