H07090 - Daylight 24 Natural Daylight 47" Gooseneck Floor Lamp
What did I buy??
I purchased this lamp in March, 2008, but kept it packaged until today. I am now ready to use it. When I opened the box to unpack it, I discovered there are absolutely NO ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS!! I wasn't concerned, because it looks simple to put together. I struggled for a half hour, and can not get the excess thick cord / wiring stuffed into the tubing. Why is there so much wiring? In addition, the tubing does not stay together, so it is impossible to pick the lamp up to move it, once it's assembled. I would not have ordered it had I seen the negative reviews first. These reviews were posted after I ordered it, and I didn't see the reviews during the 30 day return period. ► I hope I can get a relative to figure out how to put it together, and I hope it WORKS! Otherwise, I wasted over $50 on a DUD! Ea
Utter Rubbish - Don't Buy!
One of the most dreadful things I have ever bought from QVC. It is flimsy and constantly falls apart. I will be returning.
Bought 2 ... liked so much, bought 2 more
I bought 2 gooseneck floor lamps in black. My husband & I each took 1 to use at our computers. This lamp provides just the right amount of lighting at the computer -- and with the gooseneck feature, it is very easy to get just the right amount of lighting. We liked them so much, that I ordered 2 more. That said, I do wish QVC would work on reducing the packaging to help the environment. Printing the new QVC box green does NOT make QVC green.
what a piece of junk!
My mother purchased two of these and they are JUNK. They did not assemble easily and now if you try to move them in any way, they fall apart. The neck doesn't fit into the base and you can't pick it up. When sitting down in a chair or sofa next to it and trying to read, you are practically looking right into the bulbs and can't really adjust the flexible neck to a level that's comfortable for lighting your reading material (and again, when you try to move it, the whole thing falls apart). Save your money for something else... these aren't worth it.
Regretting this purchase
Usually I'm happy with QVC quality, but not this!. It WAS hard to put together only because you have to stuff the cord inside the tubing, and there is too much cord and you really have to struggle to stuff it inside. The lighting was just OK, not good enough. But the worst part is that when you want to move it around the room, it comes apart. The tubes don't lock securely together. And it is wobbly. I would have sent it back but but return shipping on top of the original shipping is just too much money.
Very disappointing product
Tubing arrived slit open when it shouldn't be. Very difficult to fit into pole. Pole would not stand up properly. I returned this defective item.
This lamp was nearly impossible to put together. Then when I finally got it barely standing, I put in the bulb, plugged it in, and it didn't even work. Then when I found out it would cost almost half what I paid for it to send back ($17.50), I decided to put a $2.00 price tag on it and sell it at the garage sale I will be having soon. Maybe somebody else has some magic touch that can get this piece of junk working. Or perhaps they can sell the metal for scrap.
Bought this to put next to my computer........the light is perfect..........doesn't strain my eyes like a regular light bulb.............no glare or heat from the bulb.....perfect height for next to a chair. Thanks QVC
Not Worth The Money
Today, I too agree with the other complaints! They could of enclosed another piece of tubing instead of trying to push the wiring in a already tight spot. I couldn't get the neck of the tubing to snap into place either.
Don't waste your money, you can find lamps like this in the marketplace and wish I had looked before being lured into buying this one!!!!!
Not the best for light
For a lamp that claims natural daylight....this one isn't so hot. The light is poor, assembly is difficult, and packing it up for return is tough too. I would never attempt to try to use this for crafting or knitting....the amount of light it throws is poor flourescent.
Love This Lamp
I just got my lamp, had no trouble putting it together. I do alot of knitting and this lamp puts just the right light on what I am working on. Thinking about purchasing another one for our mountain home.
I bought this for my husband for his birthday and he loves it. I must admit I had a bit of trouble putting it together but only because I didn't read the instructions. It is a wonderful product and I would recommend it. You will not believe how much it improves the clarity of whatever you are reading.
