I've had it for 4-5 years. yes, the knob is high and rough on the fingers, but I keep it plugged into a socket connected to the switch. You can use 2 way incandescent bulbs if you want, but I installed a a CFL in mine. I wish someone made 2 way CFL bulbs though. Not bad for 5 bucks.

How about three way?

Only if Newton consents.


Otherwise, I'm signed up for the notification

This CFL probably needs a three-way lamp, right?




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I own this exact lamp and I'd like to make a couple observations before you fools commence to running. Firstly, this is the only lamp I've ever seen that specifically warns that it requires a 3 way bulb and that there is a risk of damage to the lamp, which can lead to fire, with other bulb types. Although the lamp is very inexpensive and works fine for the base purpose of illuminating your space, the quality of light produced is a little harsh; this is the direct result of the shade being a thin, crappy piece of plastic that doesn't do much to diffuse glare. You may want to purchase a replacement shade.

Awesome! I have wanted some of these cheap for indirect lighting in the TV room with 3 way lights, like a 15/45/100 or some such bulb, or if one way bulb, a 15 watt appliance bulb would work.
