I just got this lamp yesterday and am soooo happy with it that I ordered another one last night. It is the coolest lamp ever! I didn't even know about the on/off touch feature. There's no on or off switch, you just touch the lamp anywhere and it goes on or off. Super cool. I don't know what that other reviewer was talking about the base not being weighted... mine is. I'm a huge fan of chrome and this suits me juuuust fine! : )
I didn't give it 5 stars because it was the same problem everyone has said about dim lighting. However, I knew that going in and didn't expect it to light up my life. I bought it more of an accent piece on my home office desk and I can't tell you how much I like it. About 4 people have seen it and asked what it was. All commented how much they liked it. They say what is that, and I tell them to touch it. It will always start a conversation. Not a single regret, even if the light goes out I will still keep this beautiful piece.
