I bought a pair of these in February 2001. (They were about $250 each then.) They have been nearly flawless since. The only problem they exhibit is in the twist mechanism that concentrates the light. The retainer screw that provides friction for the twist mechanism also keeps the head and lens assembly from unscrewing completely and coming off the end of the gooseneck. On both my lamps, if the retainer screw is in deep enough to keep the head/lens from coming off when fully zoomed in, then it provides too much friction for the head to zoom freely. This is the only area in which this lamp falls short. Despite that, and despite being a hardcore nitpicker -- especially at these prices! -- I would buy them again. Mine are satin nickel and they look the same as they did the day I received them. I'm going to buy the floor lamp now. Should have bought it a long time ago. Let's face it:: most of the lamps out there, even very expensive ones, are built cheesily and are low-function. These lights are built well, the base weighs enough to keep the light stable, the gooseneck is appropriately flexible, not too stiff, not too loose. The quality of the light is nice. The dimmer control works well and has a nice feel to it. Keep this light dimmed to an appropriate level and it doesn't get too hot. Don't hesitate. If you're thinking about buying it, just do it.

I own one of these, and it's been good. I got one for my wife, and the light blinked in and blinked out (mostly out). Levenger sent a replacementlamp, which does the same thing. Out, on-a-little-while, out, out, out, on-a-little-while, out. How can something that LOOKS so solidly built be so fickle?

It lasts.

I have used this lamp almost every day for 13 years.. The neck is still stiff and easy to position, the switch still works well, the focus feature is still accurate. Finally, last month, the original light bulb burned out! The Antique Brass finish gets a little rough looking. I think I'd get a smoother finish if I had to buy a second one, which I certainly would, cost not withstanding. An excellent item, directs light as it says and is very well made..

The Perfect Reading Lamp

I bought one about a year ago, but my husband has sneaked it for himself, so now i buy another. The heft, the grace of the lamp, the ease of dimming....This lamp is worth having two. I knew I would like it as it is German made. Levenger should brag about the resulting high quality.

Poem Review Submission: Midnight Reader Table Lamp

Midnight Reader Table Lamp
Read in peace while others snooze
Halogen light—crisp, white, bright
Attractive in all four hues.

Midnight Reader Table Lamp
Feel the concentrated light!
Telescope shades, filtered rays
Not to mention the perfect height.

Midnight Reader Table Lamp
To the eyes it is quite pleasing
Frosted glass lens, solid brass shine
And it don't mind if you're sneezing.

Midnight Reader Table Lamp
What a gift (sure beats a pony)
Or sweaters that you'll soon return
Plus it makes your room all homey.

Midnight Reader Poem

By 

from Undisclosed

Site Member

I lay awake
My eyes open wide
My husband is snoring
Loudly at my side.

I reach for my copy
Of Edgar Allan Poe
And read long into the night
Under the Midnight Readers' glow.

Beneath its crisp, clear light
The days troubles are well foregone
Although now I've visions of ravens and floorboards
So I think I'll leave the light on.

midnight reader poem

My brilliant, ever-faithful friend
You're nightly by my side
Sticking out your neck for me
To light my life with pride

You always do things by the book
But with a thrilling twist
The way you focus on me
I simply can't resist

Oh watt the heck, let's stay awake
With you it's never boring
Your beam won't bother hubby
Too bad, because he's snoring!

Midnight Reader

Bend your head, O little light, concur
with all my seeking and my puzzling doubt;
Your neck, sinuously feminine, incline, demur,
illumine the pacing letters, cryptic root
of my opining. Cast your web of glow
into my gloom and worm my secrets out
by the calm intelligence of your photon flow.
O Midnight Reader, show me all you know.
But what is this? Your bright disk lights a spark:
ideas contrary, breaking news, a jolt;
another voice displaces mine in the dark
sea of others' minds in which I float.
Admirable midwife of night companionship!
You, little light, deliver and equip.

Midnight Reader - poem

By 

from McLean, VA

Such a swan of a lamp
See how that graceful neck
Stands poised to shine its
Crisp white light on your
Midnight reading while a
Loved one dreams on in shadow.
It never imposes, ready to
Dim or brighten at a touch.
Its bedside manner is
Impeccable.

When the muse comes calling late at night
And I've no other page to turn
I turn on my Midnight Table Lamp
To shed light on that night poem that burns
With insistence that it be recorded
Or be forever lost from my mind
So with my Levenger Roller Ball
In the lamp light its written and signed.
