First important thing to note is that the height measurement refers to this product when the lamp is position as a column. If you want the light to face down, i.e. like a right-angle, the vertical height is about 35cm, the same as most other varieties of these lights.
The product feels a little cheap. But it looks good, the plug is sensibly small & light, and it gives enough light to work by. It doesn't cast a lot of light around, just enough for your workspace.
The coolest thing about it is switch being touch on and off. Little things please little minds. My pea sized brain loves it!
