This lamp is exactly what's needed and at the right price.
Looks just fine in the elegant brushed steel, has a strong clamp-on and a flexible neck and quickly adjustable shade.
Requires NO SPECIAL light bulb. I opened the box and screwed in a regular 13-watt, curly-q-type, CFL bulb, although an older-type incandescent bulb can be used just as well. The CFL bulb is, of course, more energy efficient and it throws all the light anyone would want. By simply moving the lamp shade height or direction, the brightest light is easily aimed or deflected to your preference.

I purchased these to use in my clothes closet, but they have come in handy for a number of things. I moved them closer to read. I used them to find something under the bed. My children love them. They are very sturdy. I need to get back to purchase more. The biggest thing I do not have room for a night stand. I clip it on my bed and now I could read in bed. I would recommend that they come in more colors.

The problem with this lamp is the clamp design. The foam rubber pads intended to protect the surface the lamp is clamped to are smaller than the actual jaws of the clamp, so the metal clamp will scratch and gouge any furniture that it's clamped to. Might be acceptable in a workshop, clamped to a crude board shelf, but i can find many better lamps to use for that purpose. You definitely do not want to use this lamp on any good furniture. Also, as some others have noted, the goose neck does tend to droop a little when placed in the all-the-way-up position. That, to me, was a relatively minor problem, compared to the other. I liked the look of this lamp, but for me, it is quite useless. I will have to return it.
