    Where's the rest of it?

    Very underwhelming product. I like that there is flexibility with the adjustable height and movable arm, but there is a big lack of features for what is suppose to be a premium product. So the light as motion sensor which is also great, but you are really limited to two lighting features, brightness and color temperature. There is a button that allows for the light to match the current lighting environment. The also sub par app only adds a couple pre-built functions. 1) Synchronize with the currently lighting environment. 2) Study and 3) Relax. Otherwise it just gives you the option to adjust the brightness and color temperature the same as you can do directly on the lamp. This is via Bluetooth connection, which you have to be within 30 ft or so from the lamp. This is not a smart lamp, it can not connect to your wifi network. So the app here adds very little value. The style is not for everyone and will not fit in every decor. In fact, my spouse said it was flat out ugly, while I thought it was ok looking and good enough to throw down in the office not visible to anyone that uses the office. Again, I like the lighting movement adjustability and being able to adjust the brightness and coolness of the light, but you can also get those rather inexpensively with a smart bulb that can be placed in a lamp that can match your decor. The LEDs in this lamp will last forever, but you are stuck with a crane looking thing. I would have expected some more functionality out of the light coming from Dyson, so unfortunately this was a disappointment.

    The perfect desk lamp

    The Dyson Desk Lamp is probably the perfect lamp. Like most Dyson products, there is an abundance of engineering that went into creating this device. The lamp is expensive. But you don't buy a Dyson product because you want to save money. You buy it because you want the best. Well, this is it. Everything about this lamp screams quality. It can be adjusted about any way you want, and the adjustments are very smooth. I like the counterweight that keeps the height where you want it. It makes the lamp a little retro, too. I also like the auto feature that lets you set a location and allow the lamp to dictate the brightness and type of light needed, from cool in the morning to warm in the evening as you're winding up your day. The touch sensitive controls are also a plus. The Desk Lamp is also very efficient. The LEDs are kept cool by the use of a heat pipe, most commonly used to cool computer processors. This also helps to increase the life of the LEDs, which Dyson rates at 144,000 hours. The LEDs save electricity, as does the motion sensor that turns the lamp off if you forget to. If you're at a desk most of the day, there are a few things you should have. You need a good chair, a functional desk, a high quality computer monitor, and good lighting. For lighting, it doesn't get any better than the Dyson Desk Lamp.
