The design-classic Anglepoise desk lamp, £99 for the brass components "special" finish, just £68-£70 for the standard finish, albeit the smaller one.

I recently spent almost double for one of these, and so in order to mitigate my blind fury at being such a chump, I bring you this deal. I'm tempted to buy another!

Go on, be as stylish and trendy as me :-)

(although part of me says "buy an old one on ebay and enjoy restoring it")

As an aside, they don't like the heavier Philips Hue Bulb, and will droop. The springs appear to be set / balanced for standard bulb weights, but a workaround is to put a tie wrap around some of the spring curls (a bit rubbish, I know...)

ikea £5 - it's a bulb holder !

Shame two's the max, I bought one for myself and another to stick on eBay in a few months which will just about cover the cost of my own

I doubt you will find another mug willing to by a desk lamp for £99​. It's a deal site we are allowed to have an opinion, you seem to be taking it rather personally.

Seems like you're paying for the anglepoise name. Would rather have one of these hurnandhurn.com/h-h…EHw

I'm not, I'm enjoying the banter, having fun. I could earnestly dissect your post, pointing out that people buy Dualit's when you can buy a Tesco toaster for a fiver, or Dyson's when a Henry does the job for a quarter of the price, but that would be boring and obvious. Come on, it's the internet, let's try and make each other laugh.

As for the deal, I appreciate it's not for everyone, but it IS a lot cheaper than you usually find them - a proper deal if you're after an Anglepoise.

​Fair point ! and for the record you have earnestly dissected my post. you obviously have good sense of humour which is sadly lacking from a lot of posters. My initial post was deliberately provocative to irate lesser and more serious beings than yourself. The - this deal tvs rubbish cos its only hot 3 hdmi ports brigade and mines much better cos its got 8 but i paid £8000 for my tv brigade. Agreed if you are after an anglepoise lamp this is indeed a deal ! merry christmas and keep up the banter !

How is this deal cold and yet a celebrity-branded water boiler is a hot deal at four hundred odd quid?

Was tempted to do this myself but ebay prices appear to be around £169 with free postage so after fees and post you'll be lucky to get £30 profit?

That's why I'll leave it a few months, let the desperadoes earn their £30 profit quick and hold out till they're out of stock and there's a 75% off final value fees promo

Hmmm.

Look how clunky and unrefined the spring system looks on that lamp. Which is also the same style and design the cheapo lamps use from anywhere else.

You need to use an actual Herbert Terry Anglepoise lamp to understand how awesome they are. Just swing, pivot it wherever you want, silky smooth and then it just stays there. Looks-wise as well, I don't think anything beats the design.


Hmmm indeed, if you look at all the true Anglepoise listings on Amazon there are some pretty scathing reviews many of which are contrary to your comments. As they are now also sadly not put together in Britain I stand by my comments i.e. you are paying for the name. Quite possibly an antique Anglepoise would live up to the name but not so sure about these & they don't even look that good

I've got a 1968 Model 75 and a 2010 1227. The 1968 one is better built with higher quality springs and will probably last forever with occasional rewires.

But a modern Anglepoise will still be far better than the tat you linked to, due to the design of the spring mechanism if nothing else. You might pay for the name, but what exactly are you paying premium price for in your link?

​Just my preference mate, prefer the look and style and happen to think the retailer generally sources good value and quality for the money. Guess If I really wanted a tat one that looks especially like Anglepoise then I'd go for one of these argos.co.uk/pro…640 as I just can't see 10 times the lamp in a modern Anglepoise, made in China. If my earlier link is tat to you that's just great, don't take it too personally.

Note if you register lamp with Anglepoise you will get a 5 yr guarantee.
