Been waiting to get one of these for my desk for a long time, noticed the price was basically £30 off since I last saw it, cheapest its been since April 2016 according to The Camelizer. All colours are the same price so even better if you want to go for something fun (unlike me, I went for black). Bulb size is E14 which is still common enough to not be an issue.

Paid £63.27 in Sept 2015 so good price!!

I could never understand why the lamp of this sort are this costly. Design? material? patent...no way any of these could be the answer.

I got an almost identical one from Ikea for £15.

I'd say its the name, design and its legacy. Thats certainly why I wanted it. The overall function of the lamp is great, holds in place and moves around freely. Of course I don't think its for everyone, like the other guy said you can get something from IKEA and live with it (I've had an IKEA lamp for the last 7 years that still holds up despite being a bit flimsy) but its something I was very interested and was hoping a few others could benefit from.

Occasionally, my Anglepoise gets pushed off the bedside table. It always survives. I had a couple of cheapo ones that worked until they fell off the bedside table. That's because the cheapo ones have plastic components that simply break easily.

I've also got a metal one from Ikea that has clamps instead of springs to balance it. The clamps are a fiddle and keep coming loose.

I agree that the Anglepoise is very expensive, but it does do the job, and I haven't found a cheapo that's anywhere near as good. I think I paid £45 for mine on a Black <day of the week> sale, so it might be worth holding out for a slightly better price. Voted warm!

Just received mine very pleased with it powder blue for my daughter and it does come with an LED bulb now. Thanks
