  • 22 W Fluorescent Daylight Magnifier Lamp - Almost perfect value for money

    jo winfield-o'hare (review section): I have probably already dealt with this problem: Tighten all screws when first set up, and also tighten screws from time to time, but not too tight otherwise difficult to adjust the lamp.

  • 22 W Fluorescent Daylight Magnifier Lamp - almost perfect value for money

    It is almost perfect. Light Tube last for years with heavy usage. Easy to set up but best to tighten all the screws where necessary. The light is nice and bright. It is sturdy and easy to get light with pin point accuracy with probably about 40" reach. If all my questions which are really solutions are published I have given an objective assessment of the lamp, which answers questions which I wanted to know before I purchased the two lamps years ago. I have only given it four stars, because the tube does become brown with heavy usage, but what I forgot to say in the question section is that I still got a nice bright light. I don't know if it is just a fuse which is blown, but I shall just buy a new lamp - I shall search for the best price. If I knew that I was going to answer so many questions then I would have copied and pasted them into this review section, but if they are displayed then people can read what I have said in the questions section.

  • Good while it lasted

    The lamp provided a great light to work by. Unfortunately it doesn't stay in position very well. And main has failed after only a couple of months use. I purchased a replacement tube for it, but that doesn't solve the problem. The fuse is fine. Currently awaiting the magic of a Maplineer to swap it out. Fingers crossed the next one works for longer.

  • Very good quality item

    Perfect tool for fine work, and in my case fly tying. Very nicely made, with good quality materials. Repositioning of the lens is no problem and it holds its allocated position with no issues. The clamp jaws will accommodate a desk edge of up to 60mm thickness, and as I have old office desk with deep metal edging this is a big bonus. The light is bright, cool, and well distributed over the subject area, also liked the lens guard which should help to keep it dust free when not in use. Thoroughly recommend it.

  • Exactly what I needed

    Pros- Very happy with it. Arm extends how I want it to, has cover on top of light to stop dust getting onto the magnifier and you can use it just as a lamp too, very bright but does not hurt the eyes. Does not burn you to touch. Power cable good enough length. The mount is strong and works well, as long as you have an edge to mount it too. Cons- Had trouble mounting due to not having a ledge. Wish it had another type of stand mount. (Does state in description about mount though). Also the magnifier could be slightly stronger so you didn't have to hold the magnifier so close. Even better would be to have a second smaller magnifier installed into the larger magnifier. Overall I'm very happy with my purchase. Would recommend. 4/5

  • Good value magnifier lamp: Good positional control, clear magnifier, cool lamp. I sometimes work with very small things and this lamp is great for those times and for people like me whose eyes aren't what they used to be. :)

  • Genuine 5 star review: Ordered late at night, was dispatched early the next day, and arrived the day after. So for a free delivery, that's excellent. The lamp's packaging is compact but solid, and that was dispatched within another box for transport, so the lamp arrived in perfect condition, and fully functional (the lamp and glass lens were fine). The construction is very solid and robust. The metal arms and joints are of a heavy gauge and well coated (powder coating I think). The plastic housing for the lens/lamp is solid and thick gauge, and solidly screwed together. The power switch for the lamp (situated on the top of the lens/lamp housing) feels like good quality that should last for many years. The table/desk clamp is again very solid and has a good wide opening allowing clamping to thicknesses of about 2.5 inches. It tightens securely very easily, and holds firm. The thumb screws at the joints also tighten securely very easily and hold firmly, whilst still allowing easy manipulation of the position of the lens/lamp. The spring balancing is well tuned, and a nice touch is that the springs are encased in solid plastic tubes, which not only makes cleaning easier, but also looks rather swish. Impressive and careful design has been applied, creating a stable, robust lens/lamp that holds still easily whilst not requiring great effort to quickly move its position during use. The lamp gives a strong white light, and the glass lens is very good quality with no discernable distortions whatsoever. The lens/lamp head has many degrees and angles of movement allowing pretty much any position to be easily set, and as easily altered. More specifically: Reaches a good 40 inches whilst still allowing room to work under the lens (clamped at the same height as the bench (clamped to the bench you're working on)). Even at this extreme reach, the lens/lamp holds still and firm. Set with its elbow at a right angle and the part of its arm nearest the clamp vertical, the lens/lamp height (set at a "normal" angle for use) is about 18 inches from the bench. And in that position the center of the lens/lamp is about 26 inches from the clamp (edge of the bench). (For me (eyes vary of course)) the useful range of the lens is about 7 inches, allowing plenty of room beneath the lens to work. The magnification at "the sweet spot" is roughly 1.5 to 2 times magnification (but that's just by eye as a guestimate). For me (mainly for electronics) this is ideal. Not too disorienting, but a great improvement in detail for fiddly work. Summary: Excellent quality product, and for the price - almost unbelievable! I'd not have been disappointed if it had cost a twice the price (not that I'm suggesting Maplin should put the price up!).
