Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Robbie Desk Lamp Simple, sophisticated, suave in classic black. It's how contemporary light should be. Friendly and easy operation, which is where good design fits in with your environment, whether on your desk, shelf, table or basically any flat surface, even your floor. 17 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by OKish I bought this at the same time as buying the Mantis light and thought I'd return the one I liked least (which is this one) till my husband pointed out that it'd be the same price as the light in train fares to Brum to do so. So, I'm keeping it though I much prefer the light that the Mantis light gives out. In it's favour it's nice and flexible and would be OK I guess for reading but not for the sewing which is what I wanted it for. Luckily I'm slightly deaf so can't tell if it makes the noise other reviewers have noticed! 24 September 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible product After my first lamp made a large humming noise I thought that I had a one off broken product. I am now onto my fourth lamp (all replacements) and all lamps have either hummed loudly or made an annoying clicking noise. 13 September 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice but dim! A good looking, basic little desk lamp. The light level is a bit too low for close work such as needlework but it's fine for lighting a keyboard when doing computer work. I didn't notice any hum from the lamp even after an hour, so it looks like that problem may have been addressed. 09 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Light and Sound As a light it works fine. As a audio device it should ideally be a lot quieter, i.e. silent. It starts as a quiet buzz but can turn into quite a rattle. Have tried muffling it with cloth, standing it on foam, adjusting it's position every which way. None of these offer a permanent solution. Have found that punching it stops the humming for a while without affecting the light and is far more satisfying than any of the above methods. 27 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Practicle desk lamp A good practiclal desk//bedside lamp at a very competitive price. Inclined to emit a slight hum. 18 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Noisy Although this a nice looking little desk lamp, which gives good light, it emits a continuous low-level hum which I found really annoying and distracting. 29 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by PREFECT DESK LAMP!!! It does as it says on the packet - Basic Desk Light. I purchased this item for my daughter's desk - to aid the late night GSCE studying. It met the brief perfectly! I would have preferred a choice of colour - but it did not impact the item choice. 12 June 2014
