Takeaway: Slim/sleek design, bright and dimmable, easy to adjust, convenient USB charging.

You'll receive the lamp head, base, power adapter, set screw, Allen wrench, cleaning cloth and instruction manual. The lamp head splits apart on a pivot joint and the LED lights are on a rotatable section in a translucent section. The rest of the lamp is made of metal with a matte black finish. The lamp head measures 16" inches long and swivels to about 160 degrees in both directions. The light portion is rotatable up to 270 degrees and can face all 4 directions: up, down, left, or right. The base weighs about 1.5 lbs and measures 7.75"L x 4.5" W x 1/2"H.

The lamphead is simply placed atop a slot with contact pins and tightened via the set screw from the bottom. On the left side of the base is a 1A USB port for charging a mobile device. The power cable plugs into the back of the base. The controls for the lamp are touch sensitive and located on top of the base towards the front. There's a mode, power, and timer button as well as a touch slider for brightness.

The touch controls are responsive and changing the settings is simple. While I appreciate the simplicity of one-button operation for the modes, you may have to cycle through them to find the one you want rather than being able to select the exact mode with one-touch. The differences between the mode are slight but they offer different color temperatures and overall brightness levels. Pressing the timer activates a 1 hr shutoff timer and a tiny red LED will illuminate, though it's a bit hard to see within the clock symbol. Tapping the timer key again will turn the timer off, and there's no way to see its progression at a glance e.g. 30 mins left. The USB works great for charging bedside.

Overall, this is a durably constructed desk lamp with modern touch controls. It's very bright on the brightest mode but able to be dimmed to a comfortable nighttime ambient glow. The light can be adjusted to suit your preferred color, brightness, angle and direction. Its modern, slim design is sharp and minimalist.
