The Patec 8w LED Desk Lamp is a versatile, energy efficient lamp that is both attractive and user friendly. It features 5 different brightness levels, combined with 5 LED colour temperatures which means there are 25 settings to choose from, as well as off of course.
The device is gloss black and features touch sensitive controls on the base. They even include a cleaning cloth to make sure you can keep it smudge free, a nice touch. The light bar is attached to a very flexible arm, allowing you to position the light at any angle you can imagine.
Being an LED device, power consumption is very low. The device seems very steady on its base, even with the light positioned as far forward as possible. The base features 3 touch sensitive buttons: On/Off, Brightness Selection, and Colour Temperature Selection.
I was able to find perfect settings for both a soft background light, as well as a nice option for reading that did not strain my eyes as much as when I use a CCFL bulb (spiral bulb). I prefer a cool blue light, and this lamp certainly delivers that along with many other possible settings.
The highly adjustable neck is covered in a soft material and overall the whole lamp feels like it is well constructed. As this is an LED lamp, you should never have to worry about the “bulbs” dying, they should last the life of the device.
I am very satisfied with this lamp. It is highly flexible and easily adjustable while having many different brightness and temperature settings. It makes reading a pleasure and provides a very calm and relaxing background light when performing other tasks.
