I bought this LSM-180 Magnifier Lamp in "steel" - not painted some color - and couldn't be happier. I didn't want a painted mode
l, since those are subject to scratches and wear marks in time. It's actually ALL stainless steel, plus it has a very light, hardly noticeable clear coat, perhaps lacquer, on the circular lamp assembly itself to keep it looking new and shiny. Heavy duty, round electrical cord is used, not lame 18 gauge wire. The voltage converter/ballast is contained right within the steel-enclosed mount, so you don't have a large, blocky voltage adapter to plug into the wall outlet. Well balanced springs, so when you move the lamp to some position, it stays there. The 5" diameter lens gives a good, wide view. I use it in my workshop for projects, especially involving small objects. The round, flourescent bulb is of a standard size, so it's easily replaceable. The mounting clamp spans almost 2 1/2 inches, so it'll mount to most any bench or table. The light intensity is certainly adequate without being oppresive or excessive. This is not a slap-dash, Mickey Mouse unit; it is made of solid, high quality materials. The only downside is that it's on the pricey side, but this unit is worth the money. You get what you pay for.
