Wow…what a GREAT lamp at a GREAT price. I’ve been keeping my eyes on these new streamlined LED desk lamps. But the thing that always prevented me from buying one in the past was that you had to toggle through several different light modes every time you wanted to turn the damn thing on and off.
The folks at TaoTronics apparently LISTEN to consumers. This new light has a touch sensitive bar that allows you to easily turn the light on and off and move it to any brightness you want in a second without toggling through modes.
Even more impressive is the light itself. If you think all LED bulbs are harsh and cold, think again. This desk lamp has a nice warm glow…and easily switches from super dim to super bright in an instant. The lamp is also STURDY and very BEAUTIFUL. This truly is the lamp I’ve been waiting for. A total THUMBS UP!

My mom is pleasantly surprised as she can read for long periods of time without any eyestrain at all. She thought it was just because she was getting older but the types of light available with this product really do make such a big difference.

Setup is a breeze, you unscrew the bottom and screw it back on with the platform in between and you’re ready to go. It twists at the base and then you have the vertical adjustment at the top.

Overall the product is very light but the base is stable.

Really a very nice piece of technology, it was a bit pricey but it’s one of those, you get what you pay for, cases.

USB port works for charging iphone and the 1-hour feature is a nice touch. Highly recommended.

3.2 The best review

This is the third TaoTronics lamp I’ve purchased and is by far my favorite (DL01 and DL07 being the others)! The base is finally heavy enough to feel sturdy and allow easy adjustment. The brushed metallic finish is fingerprint resistant (unlike the black plastic on some of their other lamps).

The numerous light settings work amazingly well and save what you last used, even between other settings. The rotating head is great for desks, but is especially useful for bedroom reading where the lamp is off to the side. Finally, the nightlight option is easy to activate, is its own button, and doesn’t require the lamp to be opened.

It does get warm on the top if you’re using the brightest setting, but not so much that I think it would burn skin during normal contact. The only other downside is that now I really want to replace my other two with this version.

4.2 The best review

These are very high quality lamps similar to what one sometimes sees in upscale hotels. The design is modern, the shade very tasteful, the appearance is high quality and everything functioned perfectly.

We are using 15watt (100 watt equivalent) LED bulbs of 1600 lumens with a 5000 Kelvin rating so the light color is a bit bluer, but that is our preference. You can use any bulb you wish to.

Perfect light, perfect lamp, perfect function. There is no reason not to buy one of more of these lamps. After the first one we bought two more.

5.2 The best review

I can only reinforce the positive reviews others have given this product. The range of light temperatures is useful – though I personally have little use for as warm a light as 1800 degrees for desk work.
The capacitive controls step nicely through the range of light intensities and the CRI seems to be as high as advertised, with solid reds and accurate skin tone reproduction (a potential weakness of a even high CRI LED’s .
Print material is crisp and easy to ready, color rendering on photos is natural. Light dispersion is roughly 180 degrees from the top light bar – and be be easily maneuvered into a variety of configurations to direct light where it is needed and away from where it is not (e.g. a relatively dim laptop screen). The black version is glossy and a bit of a finger print magnet – a minor issue.
Overall this is an excellent example of a product that wonderfully melds form with function at a price lower than competing products with inferior design elements.

I love this lamp. I wanted something for the night stand and this is perfect! My husband and I couldn’t agree on lamps. I purchased this just for something in the interim. However, after using it we decided to get another and skip the fancy lamps!
I like how this is cordless, you can move it anywhere. Also love the touch on/off and 3 different light settings. The bendy neck is nice too. One reviewer said the base wasn’t heavy enough. It’s true, if you have a feisty cat or a cluttered desk you probably could knock it over. For my purposes it’s perfect!

7.2 The best review

I had one of these for eight years, but in black. It finally went caput. I am so happy to replace it with this new one that is even better than my old one.
It is lighter, for one thing, which means less stress on the “joints” so that it remains in position. Also, the on/off switch for the light bulb is a simple toggle switch. On. Off. Just press the button. On my old one, I had to hold the button in until the starter on the flourescent light would come on.
I ordered this on a Saturday afternoon and it arrived on Tuesday, well-packed in a gigantic box. I am so pleased with both my new craft lamp, the speed of delivery, and the excellent packing. If anybody beads or embroiders or performs any close-up work, this lamp with the magnifier is the one to get. Truly, I cannot live without it.

8.2 The best review

I found this lamp to be exceptionally well made. It’s heavy with a metallic base and solid light fixture components. I can’t believe they sell these for under $50.-. I’ve shopped around and can honestly tell you it looks like a $200 – $300.- lamp.
I’m extremely happy with this purchase. I love it so much I’ve purchased a second one as a back up just in case I should I drop or damage the first. You never know if they discontinue making these or cheap down the quality like they do with so many other products. I never want another banker’s lamp after owning this one. It’s the best for the money.

9.2 The best review

I now have two of these, one on each side of my stand/sit desk. Have monitor and laptop on articulating arms as well. The versatility of the lamps allows for many configurations when working on various things. I bought one initially, which was fine to light the side of my desk I used for writing, but two was necessary to brightly light the entire surface (60 x 30 inch).

I agree with another reviewer that an analog knob would be better, guests can never figure out how to use the light, but it also gives a good, small one-button operation for all the functions of the lamp, but that’s a worthy design compromise so I’m not docking a star.

10.2 The best review

I chose this lamp after reading a lot of reviews of lamps! I purchased the white one, and it is awesome. It has a large, solid base, where items can be ‘stored’, like glasses, post-it notes, etc. I love how adjustable it is. The variety of different types of lighting, along with brightness adjustability, makes this the perfect light.

I use it on my desk, but not next to my bed. My only complaint is that it was a bit difficult to screw in the lamp to the base and have it line up straight – took several attempts to get it lined up to face straight ahead (ended up off to the side several times). I also liked how I received a customer service email from the company checking in with me to see if I had questions or issues.
