This is the third style of these Himalayan Salt Lamps I've bought. The first style I bought, Model # 1301B, was excellent and exceeded expectations. I then bought two Model # 1332, and was terribly disappointed when they arrived with no salt crystals. I liked these little 3" lamps, thought they'd make sweet stocking stuffers, so I bought two, thinking the second round of lamp purchases had just been an odd occurrence.
These lamps arrived promptly (as always with Home Depot.) The first one was DOA right out of the box, no light at all. The second lamp worked but, strangely, the light inside changes colors constantly: From blue to pink, to magenta, to red and then green, back to blue. It's interesting, in a Star Trek kind of way, but it was the natural amber-ish color of the salt crystals illuminated by a plain bulb that make these lamps intriguing, not a color-changing LED. Also of note is that, contrary to the product description, these did not come with the wall plug, nor is the cord 6.5 ft.
I hate to say that I'm disappointed and will return these little lamps. I suppose I should be thankful the first style I bought (Model #1301B) were just as promised and truly are spectacular.

Really wanted this for the usb plug. Light changed colors.....very unexpected.This info was not in the product description and really needs to be put in for people who are used to the orange glow associated with Himalayan lamps. Base of lamp was disappointing.....2 screws screwed in thru wooden base into crystal. Not countersunk....very uneven.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Not as described but kids still like. Worry item will break quickly.
Similar to item shown (picture looks the same) but color changing like a jacuzzi light show, flowing from color to color pretty rapidly. Worry this means there is a gear inside that won't last. Also, like previous review, the cord is not 6.5 feet, no wall outlet plug converter was provided, and there are no instructions. I have contacted Home Depot for advice. I bought one for me and two as gifts for my two grown children and not sure whether to return yet. Will wait to see what Home Depot plans to do. Item ordered online as a daily deal and shipped to Home Depot was delayed with Christmas. Picked up and items in plain white box with no vendor information and no manual inside.

I have several of them place around the living room, cleans the air, romantic to see and even my sleep is getting better, I have PTSD from Vietnam and this is one natural form of helping me sleep.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BuyerBeware Very cheaply made
We received an order of four lamps. Two were broken out of the box (base was very loosely attached to the lamp and could not be tightened) and the other two had large chunks that had broken off. The light inside also changes colors which was less desirable than a clear white LED light.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jackrack Loose base
Rock appears nice. The base on all 3 that I ordered were loose; screws do not go flush, leaving metal from the screw out; making the base unlovely and a potential scratching nightmare. USB port only with color changing led is nice. Not impressed with product base.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nineironputt Item is a bit of a let down.
Purchased two for Christmas presents but unfortunately neither made it in time with the shipping issues we had this year. Obviously it wasn't Home Depots fault that these arrived 18 days later from when I ordered so this review is not based on this.
What I can say is that I purchased these for the orange glow color that the product description states it produces. Unfortunately these (model 900) are not as described and instead emit a fading of colors from the RGB Leds inside. One other thing to possibly take into consideration is that LED's stay relatively cool so as far as the unit emitting negative ions I couldn't imagine it doing such a thing very well if at all.
Overall an Ok "Fun" light but I am disappointed in the product overview as of 12/16/2013 they really should change it and inform you that it changes colors.
