I bought the $200 Ott floor lamp with a half-price coupon just before they went on sale last fall...needed new lamp near sewing table.

If you read the reviews on this particular light most complaints are about failure of the bulb...mine lasted less than one week. I contacted customer service about the warranty and after about eight weeks I received a new bulb...wrong size for the lamp. Rather than pay full price at JoAnn Fabrics I went to Lowe's and got a replacement bulb for $20.00. Bulbs for smaller lamps are $10.00 at Lowe's.

If you need a 24WHD Ott Lite replacement I'll send it to you for price of mailing.

PS: Bulbs are very hard to remove and replace but once you get the hang of it it's a snap...pardon the pun!!!

JudyD's post along with the others has persuaded me to skip it for now, maybe I'll think about it again later. I wouldn't be able to get into the store when the 20% off is good anyhow. Thanks, all. I'm going to see what Home Depot, Lowe's, etc. have in stock.

Check out the Verilux site. They have really good sales at times. I've had the flex lamp w/magnifier for years which I use downstairs for knitting, quilting, or hand sewing. Only problem I've had with that one is the flex tube cracking from moving the lamp so much. Love the light it gives.
