Friends have commented "holy moly, that light must've cost hundreds to be this good" only to be frozen with shock when I tell them the actual price.
Fantastic product and well worth the dosh.
- would prefer a longer power cable
- would prefer if there was no idle light
- the plastic feels a bit cheap
- the transition of light to off seems a bit odd
Top international reviews
- I purchased this lamp after swimming through reviews on just over 15 other similar LED lamps. Most of the lamps I considered were TaoTronics as they tend to have a very strong following with many positive reviews, not to mention they have been praised as some of the brightest LED desk lamps you can find for under $50.00. Those two points were most important to me: Less than $50.00 and must be a bright LED array.
Why I chose this lamp:
- As a painter of miniature models, I need a lot of bright white lighting in order to see paint colors and how they truly appear in tone and color as I apply them to a model. I previously had a small LED desk lamp and a tall fluorescent halo lamp that I could use overhead and move around as needed. I started to realize there were a lot of shadows on my models and I was constantly trying to move the overhead lamp around to get better lighting, but that just made shadows elsewhere. The fluorescent lamp just wasn't bright enough. Seeing these LED desk lamps with the long arrays online, I immediately decided that this might be the solution to my problem. A long array with a nice, even light output would provide for a better area of coverage than my previous lamps, which this TaoTronics lamp promised to provide. If you look at the pictures I included, you can see the difference in lighting. Now, for full disclosure, the room was fairly dark when the pictures where taken and the sun had not come up yet, so there was little ambient light in this area. Also, it is important to note that I did/do not solely use this lamp. I use all three lamps to provide as much light as possible, however, it is still very obvious how much brighter the desk area is with the TaoTronics lamp on. The light from this lamp outshines my previous lamps as opposed to simply being washed out like dim headlights under street lamps.
What I like:
- This lamp has five brightness settings, which I am a big fan of. The lamp also has four different color variations ranging from a soft amber, to a light yellow, a bright blue-ish cool white, and finally a bright daylight white. That being stated, I just use the bright white setting at level five. The base is more than heavy enough to prevent this lamp from ever becoming unstable or falling over. The touch sensitive controls are very responsive and intuitive. The cord from the adapter plugs into the back of the lamp and is out of the way. The USB charging port is not something I cared one way or the other about, however, my phone is typically sitting on the desk as I work and this allows me to charge it without running another cord to the outlet. The armature height works very well for my needs and seems to be a very good desk lamp height. The slim LED array allows me to place light over my work area without having a light fixture either hitting me in the head, or blocking my view of the models I am painting. This is a big one for me. The fluorescent halo lamp I have been so dependent upon for years is always in my way when I place it in a spot that offers the best lighting. The TaoTronics lamp offers a great area of coverage while the slim design keeps it out of my way, and it still provides much better lighting than I had previously. Lastly, it is quite bright. The LED array on this lamp is too bright to look at, but when looking at the lamp from any angle other than right up into the array, it does not bother my eyes at all. Of course I am not going to be staring into the LED array because it's lighting my desk, not me.
What I don't like:
- My biggest point here is that while this lamp is very bright, I could personally use one more brightness setting. While this is not really a gripe at all, I just find there may be times where I might want a little more light, however, this lamp is very bright as it is and I do like that. Another point is the lamp's armature. You can move the lamp through variations of up and down or forward and backward, but you can't swivel or rotate the lamp head itself. I don't find that to be a big issue, personally, however, I realize there are some who would. My final point here would be about heat. The very top of the lamp (the back of the LED array) gets hot when running at full brightness. For anyone has has any experience with high intensity LEDs, that shouldn't come as a big surprise as they can generate quite a bit of heat. The plastic cover on the top of the lamp is vented along the center line, similar to the design of the middle section of the armature. Even so, it gets hot enough to the touch (though not so hot you can't touch it) that I am a little concerned about shortening the lifespan of the lamp if I run it max white/bright all the time.
Overall I am quite happy with this purchase. It does what I need it to do very effectively and has made me realize just how poorly lit my work area was before I purchased this lamp. If you need a lamp that can light an area, such as a desk or worktable, efficiently then look no further. With a price point of under $30.00, you get more than you paid for here, in my opinion. It provides a nice soft light you can use as a nightlight or an absolutely bright daylight lamp for a desk, work area, reading, ect.
Studying for an exam thats all I use it for “To read on my study desk” maybe it’s a one time incident with someone but this is my first hand story.
Hope it helps others
I got the replacement lamp and they were very courteous to send it ASAP . I am very satisfied with my investment in the company so I changed my review to 5 star as their customer service is great!
I've ordered and tested two of these now, and I'm sending them both back. I hooked up my iPhone 6+ to charge overnight and when I came to get it the next day, it was only at 44%. I didn't even think to question the USB port as being faulty as a USB port is a USB port, right? Wrong. I've now watched and tested the USB port on two of these and both have the same problem: one will charge my phone to 44% and the other only to 29-30%. What the heck?
Honestly, the lamp functionality is top notch: great colors, great brightness, love the timer functionality, very easy to position the lamp, good aesthetics, so I gave this guy 2 stars instead of 1. If it weren't for the USB port being so dismal, this would have gotten 5 stars no problem.
I'm going to try a third time before giving up on this lamp, which says something. I want this thing to work, but after getting two duds I'm not holding my breath.
The advertised color temperature ranges indicate this lamp will produce a soft, golden yellow light. The manufacturer's video imply this, too. But it does not. Every mode is a variation of white. I returned the lamp for this reason.
Then, out of the blue, they sent me a new lamp! I had not even requested one. The new lamp (same model number) has very responsive switches. It doesn't have a rotating head like the old lamp (which was very useful for me), but the switches do indeed work beautifully. Since that was my only complaint with the old lamp, I feel obliged to give it 5 stars. Yes, I'm a pushover. However I will certainly lower the number of stars if problems with the switches start developing again.
The light comes situated on a flat platform that will definitely require two hands to put together and screw together tightly. The light has a USB charging port, which is extremely convenient, whether you place this on your desk or nightstand. The lamp has a lot of flexibility in terms of rotating and also flexing the upper arm so that you can adjust the lighting to your liking.
But the main reason I purchased this lamp is because I have 2 countertop 5-gallon aquariums. Since they are under the kitchen cabinets, they have very little natural light. The lighting for the fish tanks are in the lid. When the lids are removed to do maintenance and water changes, you just can't see into the tanks. This lamp is the perfect size to temporarily light things up in the tanks enough so that I can see what I'm doing. I like that the position of the light can be adjusted or turned easily.
So, in conclusion--it works well for my needs, but don't expect it to throw a lot of light.
First of all, the TaoTronics is considerably taller so it meets my present needs better. The argument for which is easier on the eyes seems moot. The TaoTronics has, as others have pointed out, both four different types of lighting as well as levels of brightness for each of those types. I found that the light is surprisingly evenly distributed over pages. This is important because some reading stands that come equipped with lights only illuminate part of the page. With the TaoTronics, I can, in fact, read the footnotes!
What I like better about the OxyLed is that the gooseneck bends and twists whereas the TaoTronics is rigid. Even if it swiveled, it would be a big improvement. This is the reason for knocking off one star.
Maybe this is not fair. The rating should be based on what the lamp is rather than what I wished it were, but if one makes a statement such as this, it might encourage the engineers and designers to come up with something closer to perfect.
In general, I would rate these two lamps as comparable in quality. Both produce enough light for most deskwork; both are of a size that makes them quite movable if needed in another room or another area of the desk. Neither interfere with visibility of the computer, by which I mean my very large screens remain easy to read and nothing is washed out by the bright light of the LEDs. Both lamps are nicely designed and aesthetic (if you like modern looking lamps). The build quality is comparable. I like both and now have one on each desk.
