This light is s step up from the TT-DL13 lamps which I also have two of. God only knows why I needed this upmarket model as well, but it seemed like a "bright" idea at the time. See what I did there ? Anyway, this is a "shining" example of a well made light (stop it already!), it has a bunch of modes that you probably won't use after you find the right settings, but we all love options and justifying our impulse purchases. The best feature over the TT-DL13 is the on-off sensor button thing, which is a single touch with memory of the brightness/colour temp - on the cheaper unit it requires a press-hold-release for a while where this is instant on/off. You could say I'm de-lighted so far anyway (thank you, thank you, I'm here all week!)
I bought two of these to use as our bedside lamps. They are wonderful! I love the ability to soften or brighten the light for reading. The night light is an awesome function for my partner because he works shifts and often needs to get up at odd hours. It gives enough light for him to get ready without waking me up. The one hour timer is very convenient, but cannot be lengthened or shortened (but we don't need it to be). The ability to plug my phone changer straight into it is also a plus. The fewer powerboard plugs needed, the better! They're definitely an industrial type of look and the base is quite weighty and stable. I like that I can set my favourite light setting and access it with the touch of a button. When you turn it on, the light will return to the same setting you had it in when you turned it off. The power button light is always on, but it's not so intrusive that you will wake from it. It's convenient to be able to see the button in the dark. A great design!
I bought this lamp for my desk table and so far it has been amazing! When I was researching for a new lamp I wanted one bright enough that would allow me to work on my laptop and also to read without forcing my eyes too much. This one does the job pretty well and, besides, looks super nice. As you can see in the pictures, it has several color temperatures that come very handy when working late in the night and the warmer ones make the room look very stylish. The construction quality seems to be very good, it feels nice to the touch and all of its moving parts are very good engineered because you can see that they hold to their positions firmly, while at the same time allows you to configure them with ease. Oh, the package is great too. I receive my Amazon orders on my office, and it was very easy to carry it to my home since the box has a very useful handle. I think it's a very good option. Good work!
Having not bought a desk lamp for years l was mightily impressed. The ajjustability, choice of light intensity far exceeds my expectations. I was reading an instruction manuall with extremely small print.By changing the colour temperature and turning the brightness up ⬆ could read it with no eye strain.It's design anticipates every need l might need in a stylish,practical and easy manner.
Very attractive design and quality appears to be excellent. Very easy to adjust to desired brightness and colour temperature as it has separate controls for each and a good range on both. Remembers the last setting from when it was turned off plus there is a favourites button to save settings. Easy to find the ideal position as the base swivels, angles can be adjusted at the two hinge joints and the light head also rotates. Overall very happy with the light and was delivered in two days using the "Expedited Delivery" option.
The build quality of the lamp is top notch. I really like the full metal design and the hinge mechanism is solid. The most important factor is the light output and it is excellent. The beam is wide with even dispersion. There is a decent range of settings for colour temperature and brightness that is simple to adjust with the control panel. Pricing maybe more compared to similar lamps but I would say its well worth the price.
Ordered this lamp and it arrived a week after. The night light didn't work and I informed customer support regarding it. They sent a replacement lamp right away. The lamp is sturdy and seems of very high quality. The finishing of the lamp is very sleek and professional looking and it complements my desk setup. Very happy with the wide variety of usage options and brightness. Definitely will recommend this lamp and the seller.
Bought 2 of these back in April 2019 for our new shared desk and it hasn't let down yet. The timer is great and the different settings that it has are endless. A great product for any desk, work station, or the bedroom for reading without disturbing the other half.
Purchased together both the "TaoTronics TT-DL16 Stylish Metal LED Desk Lamp", $100 and the white plastic model for $50 approx. Both excellent. Buy the Metal model if you can afford it. Would make a great gift.
Build quality is excellent and the many colour temperatures/intensities to choose from are very usable in any room environment. Highly recommended - One suggestion would be if it also had a remote control - maybe the next model.
