At £99 the bill for this lamp certainly changed my mood.

I've been thinking of buying one for our new front room, but the price is stopping me- do you think it was worth the cash? It's right up my street but i'm aware that if it isnt the right thing i'm unlikely to be able to sell it without taking a big loss.

while 99 quid is better than the usual price, they are well overpriced.

they look realy good in their own right as an unusual ornament but they are realy bad to position properly and i think you need two to make them realy effective in an average sized room.

on the plus side tho, you can tune one remote to two lamps giving simultanious control.

Don't look bright enough to read by.

Make your own with an electric motor, a maglite and some quality street wrappers attched to a clear plastic disc.

What does the "Gen 2" mean?

What's changed?

From a website: "Gen 2" is a commercial trick often used by manufacturers to squeeze more money out of their customer base who have grown wise to the outlandish claims of their "Gen 1" product.

Often the "Gen 2" is the same product only with new packaging and Gen2 added to the instruction manual.

This is very cheap and effective IF you have the right place in a room. Shadows could equal fail.

Half price for a smaller one though.

PS - Cold because the product isnt liked - but find it cheaper elsewhere please? Its an £80 saving for those who wanted one!!

The Gen 1 is a great product at any rate. I bought 1, then another 3

At much lower prices though, last year from Amazon and then B&Q

btw, don't bother with the small ones. They're tiny, with little light and no remote control.
