Pros: This little lamp is amazing. I love the amount of light it gives for the amount of power it requires, and the natural daylight spectrum is certainly easy on the eyes. The base plate is nice and heavy, which adds a lot of stability to the lamp. And, it was duck soup to attach the base plate to the lamp. They not only provided the screws, but also a handy-dandy little Philips screwdriver for them. Nice little wall wart for power, too. The gooseneck makes it very adjustable.
Cons: About the only thing I have against the lamp is more a matter of my expectations than of a failing in the lamp itself. I had planned to replace the CFL lamp on my computer desk with it, but the OxyLED lamp wasn't bright enough to do that. However, I did replace another CFL lamp with it where I write my checks, fill out forms, etc. As adjustable and stable as the OxyLED lamp is, it works fabulously where it is, now.
Other Thoughts: I think I'm going to be looking at other OxyLED products in the future. I'd love to be able to replace all of my CFLs with LEDs of the same quality as this lamp!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to see discs through the outer layer of the sleeve. Fabric layer separating the pockets is clean and lint free. The whole sleeve is thin, but strong, so doesn't add a lot of bulk. A slight "indentation", I guess you could call it, in the vertical sides, so that the discs don't just drop in, but once they're in there, they're unlikely to fall out. This is better than the flap on some sleeves that can cause a bit of a struggle when securing the discs inside.
Cons: About the only drawback to these sleeves is that I haven't found a binder suitable for a small number of discs in sleeves. This may just be the nature of the beast, but it seems that the only binders I can find -- including those made by Merax -- are for several hundred to a thousand discs. This is cool, I suppose; if I were transporting my whole music collection, say, and wanted to leave the jewel cases behind, that would be one thing. But, if I want to put a collection of old-time radio shows in a nice, neat little package, that comes down to holding the dozen or so sleeves together with a rubber band or whatever. But, if you do have a few hundred or more discs in sleeves to deal with, these are definitely the sleeves you want.
Other Thoughts: if I need to buy any more sleeves, I'll definitely go with Merax.READ FULL REVIEW
