When I saw this desk lamp at Costco, I was skeptical at first about its light that it boasted was equal to the "full spectrum of the sun". I decided to try it out, so after taking it out of the box and assembling it in about fifteen minutes or so, it sure surprised me. It gave off a bright, but softer glow that was definitely not as yellow as my previous lamp. The design of the lamp seemed different and more innovative then previous lamps I had, and for this lamp you can change many angles to fit your own liking, rather than just one position. The lamp works very well and really does seem to help cut the glare on my computer screen, and seems to give me more natural light. I would highly recommend it for anyone with a desktop, especially in the winter season.
