Best Desk Lamp
I love this lamp. This purchase was a replacement for almost the exact model that had to be about 15 years old. It is perfect for my computer desk. I felt lost when I was waiting for my new lamp to arrive.

we're on our fourth floor lamp w/this order...
reading in my recliner hasn't been the same since i use the floor lamp. w/all the complimentary reviews, i think these lamps could be issued to every citizen in the u.s. we would have a less depressed society and people w/better and happier outlooks on life because they have a product that REALLY matters. thanks for continuing to offer this product. we started w/you so long ago i cannot recall when. in fact, my order today is our 4th and it is going into storage as if the lamps ever stop working, we will be prepared.

Have mine for 10+ yrs. Spend most of time reading. Have one on each side of bed. Bright but comfortable reading, sewing, delicate work. Eyes are NEVER sore like with other lamps. Bulbs do last long time. Only replaced bulb on first lamp twice. Light on over 12 hrs daily. Have beautiful Tiffany style lamps and one of these is right next to one. This is the only lamp I trust my eyesight to. LOVE IT. RAVE TO MY FRIENDS ABOUT IT. Bought a friend one to help her tired eyes from reading.

Best floor lamp ever
LOVE this floor lamp. Have vision problems and need a lot of light when reading, and this floor lamp absolutely came to the rescue. Was so good, I ordered 3 more and have them wherever I sit to read, have a desk and at the computer. Adjustable neck is great to bend and adjust any way you want to aim or divert light. Is also nice just as a room light if adjust the neck downward. I will be ordering a few more. If you have vision problems needing more light for reading, this is the lamp for you. I also have the desk version. Due to the special bulb which creates daylight it is fantastic. No straining or worrying about horrible LED lighting or old fashioned different watt bulbs. Can't say enough great things about it. Difficult to find in stores, and online is more expensive than Harriet Carter. Got free shipping too, due to email ads, so did not have to pay shipping which would have cost a fortune. Try it you'll love it.

Excellent studio light
Excellent lights to use in my music studios for my students. I am using two of them - one in each studio. They are excellent. I still have my first two -- owned two years, now? Have bought two more. Bingo!

A good value
This is a replacement unit. I do a lot of sewing and have one in living room and one by sewing machine. It is much cheaper than units sold in fabric store and I can find replacement bulbs locally. I like the offset base as it fits behind my sewing table. I use it constantly for handiwork like needlepoint, etc. It was a little tricky to assemble, but I finally got it done after a couple of tries.

[4070-1] Bell & Howell Lamp
[4070-1] Bell & Howell Lamp i bought the Bell & Howell Lamp it is very bright and very happy with this product

Would never buy another lamp like this - EVER
This is the worst designed lamp I have ever purchased. It is a bear to put together, then when you do get it together it slowly falls over. This is most likely due to the less than 1/2" screw that you use to "secure" the entire lamp. I would send it back but as one other person said paying nearly $30 in postage is NOT WORTH IT. Bad product. Bad customer service policy making customers pay so much to return defective merchandise.

I love both the table and floor lamps.
Love both the table and the floor lamps. Makes reading easier while sitting in a chair or lying in bed. I have three table and one floor models. Very easy to put together. I know some people say they don't work but you must put the bulb in correctly, If it doesn't work at first turn the bulb over and plug in, it only works one way, but it can be put in both ways.
May 14, 2016
I would buy this product again and again.
I bought the lamp for my husband, he is blind in one eye and can't read with regular lighting, so the lamp is just the thing for him to see better. Thank you, Julia Dierkes
May 11, 2016
Great Buy
I bought this lamp as a gift for my mother who has limited vision due to glaucoma. She had not been able to read the small print in the newspaper but now, due to the bright intensity of this lamp, she can again enjoy reading the newspaper and magazines.

Love using this lamp when cross stitching.
Apr 09, 2016

It did nor work. It cost me $28 to ship it back.
Mar 31, 2016
great lamp
I use the small lamp for reading in bed. The tall lamp I use next to my sewing machine to see what I'm doing better and also use it for threading those tiny eyes in the needles. I hand quilt and knit and it's great to see what I'm doing.
Mar 22, 2016
I liked it so much I bought 3 more
I use the light for reading and at my vanity. My husband uses it to read and likes the benefit of the sun. This is a great product that I would highly recommend. The light is bright so is good for reading and handwork.
Mar 19, 2016
We like it!
My husband has macular degeneration. With this lamp he is reading more and easier. We needed a little help with assembly.
Feb 27, 2016

Avoid Eyestrain
This is the second lamp I've owned and when I saw the one in your catalog I was anxious to get it. It arrived on the day promised. The main cimplaint I have is the difficulty my wife and I had putting it together. The design for attaching the lamp to the base has changed from the one previously owned and results in a lamp that leans and is wobbly. I decided to keep it however rather than return it. It suits my needs and I'll put up with the defects.
Jan 14, 2016
this light is great for reading and it also helps those who get depressed with the lack of sunlight in the winter. I bought this for my husband. He loves it and it has helped him.
Jan 14, 2016
works very well
used for my husband who can not see that well.
Jan 13, 2016
Exactly as advertised
As advertised, easy to assemble, attractive

I am an artist and use this light whenever I need to see.
I use it when I paint as the floor lamp works well to spotlight my work.
Dec 27, 2015

From day one, it didn't work at all!
Nov 26, 2015
Love this product!
I bought one for beside the bed, then another for the other side. Gifted one and my friend wants another for her laundry room and livingroom easy chair. Will buy here another. Friends who read, work on computers all have bought one after seeing mine or are buying.Love it. Great flexible angles. Bulbs are a great price, easy to replace, LONG LASTING!
Nov 20, 2015
A must for seniors
I now can enjoy doing puzzles with the light provided by this lamp.
Nov 10, 2015
Great Lamp
I bought one of this brand years ago for my husband and he's still reading by it. Now it's time for me! Great for by the chair for reading the newspaper and books. Gives a nice bright sunlight-like illumination.
Nov 08, 2015
Doesn't work.
I've wanted to try this product for some time. Now I've ordered & received it, but can't use it. Very disappointed!
Oct 30, 2015
I can see.
I just wish it was taller, and came in other colors.
Oct 26, 2015
Great lamp
I have had one of these for 7 or 8 years; use it often and still have yet to replace the bulb. Fits into tight areas as the base can sit under a table, edge of a chair, and the goose neck allows you to turn the light any direction. I have been looking for one for my sister-in-law, and this is the best price so far. Will probably order this for her.
Sep 18, 2015
It Was A Gift--Therefore I Don't know
Only 1/2 of this gift has shipped. The extra lightbulbs have not yet shipped & therefore I have not yet been charged for the second half of the gift!!!!
Sep 15, 2015
I would buy this product again
It's just what I wanted

I bought two & gave one to my 87 yr young friend/neighbor,she said she sees so much clearer now.I kept the other one as I had one before & it finally broke after 6 yrs.I couldn't find a replacement til your catalog.Thank You!! It's wonderful to read clearly again(for me,too)I can do my leatherwork again.There's really nothing wrong with it,except maybe for changing the bulbs.I have a friend who'll do that(when finally needed)
Aug 28, 2015
It's great. I love it
I have two lamps, however the on/off switch is broken on one. Can this be fixed? If so please tell me how to go about this.
Aug 28, 2015
I am happy that I purchased it.
I used it in place of the old one.I am getting more light when I read the newspaper. great.

Would purchase this product again!
Love the simplicity of the lamp and the light is just the right brightness for all in family.
Jul 24, 2015
The bulb is very long-lasting and I love the lamp it fits in
The lamp goose-neck stays in position even when I pick it up to dust around it.

Apr 24, 2015
Fantastic light to read by
to read by in living room
Apr 22, 2015
complete disappointment
After struggling to assemble, it was a complete dud. I think it was defective wiring. Cost me 27.00 shipping to return. Will never order on line again.
Dec 31, 2014
Wonderful product . . . would recommend
Excellent lamp . . . makes reading/crafts easy to do.
Dec 24, 2014
All lit up
Good product and good price for 2 replacement bulbs.
Dec 04, 2014
it is great
I gave it to my mother for a Christmas present to use in her dimly lit livingroom
Nov 12, 2014
will use for a sewing lamp, like the quality of the light, like sunlight, doesn't seem to produce heat, would prefer it to have a longer neck, would prefer on/off switch on base instead of under bulb
Oct 31, 2014
Best thing i ever bought
This lamp is great. I wish I had bought it sooner. I do a lot of Cross stitch and this lamp brings the work into focus and my eyes do not tire at all. Plus the light giving the natural light even lifts my mood. Fantastic. Also the heavy bottom keeps the lamp steady regardless of dogs bumping into it. Love it! Really a great product for a great price.
Apr 26, 2014
Excellent quality.
It is the perfect reading light in our living room. My husband had issues seeing properly and this light helps. This would be a great gift for anyone.

The Perfect Reading Lamp
The lamp stands next to my recliner where I spend most of my evenings. It has turned out to be the perfect reading lamp, as I can direct the light away from my eyes and onto my reading material. The only drawback is the uncommon bulb.
Feb 12, 2014
Bell & Howell Floor Lamp
I do beading and good lighting is important. I purchased this floor model for another room in the house so that I could expand my seating area. Although the base of this lamp is well anchored (which is a major plus!!), it was a tad difficult (but do-able!!) to connect the wires: do the short one first. I am pleased with the light it gives off, but have yet to put it to 'work'. I would definitely recommend this lamp, and am thinking about getting one for my desk as well.
Dec 22, 2013
Great Lamp!!
A GREAT lamp! I needed a lamp to illuminate my lap to sew and this is perfect. The colors are true, its bright, adjustable and easy to use. It was a wee bit confusing to assemble, but not TOO bad. Comperable lamps are usually cost much more!
Nov 30, 2013
Excellent Light
It's a great light, looks good, easy to assembly. My only complaint is the cheap pole and stand. Pole wobbles, ONE screw to hold light on base!? Come on, what gives. Such a great light is spoiled by poor design.

Bell & Howell Lamp
My electric bill was so high that I was looking for a light that would not use that much electric. I brought the floor lamp in 2010 and liked it so well that I brought a desk lamp. Now I am going to buy another one for our bedroom. They are wonderful lights. Being in our 80's we don't see very good and with these lights it really makes a difference and they are the only lights we use, they light the whole room. My desk light quit working and I sent it back to Harriet Carter and they sent me another one, No questions asked. Harriet Carter Very good place to buy from. I have never had any trouble of returning or replacing any item that I have ever brought from Harriet Carter. Great customer service.
Sep 14, 2013
Fantastic light
This lamp would work great in any size room it does give a bit of heat off which isnt bad my 17 yr old cat loved laying under it
Aug 06, 2013
I would buy this product again and again
I had one before for 12 yrs. I never had to replace a bulb in all that time.
Jun 16, 2013
Light is somewhat harsh.
Used to own a similar light that had two light settings. This only has one setting. The light is quite bright and a little harsh.

My wife uses it to crochet with

Bell & Howell Lamp
I bought this for hubby who needs laser eye surgery. Brightness works well for him. This is our third lamp, as when the bulbs burn out, replacements don't work, so we have to recycle the old lamps and buy new. That gets quite spendy. Our next lamp will hold the traditional bulbs.

B&H Lamp 4070-1

Bell Howell Lamp
Great lamp, was easy to put together, take your time and see instruction for lamp replacement.
Feb 25, 2013
Love this lamp
I have a large living room with very poor lighting. I put this lamp behind another decorative lamp right behind where I sit and it lights up my area great but doesn't intrude too much with others who are watching TV. I did have some difficulty getting the electrical wire inserted properly but it all worked out.
Nov 24, 2012
One tiny screw will not hold it up
The one screw was too small to hold the heavy lamp pole upright. I tired of positioning it to be held upright by the wall, the table in order to twist the light in the direction of my laptop. One faulty screw meant my hard earned money down the drain. And, Harriet Carter never responded to my complaint.
Sep 10, 2012
Direct light lamp
for my mother who has macular degeneration. The bright direct light helps her read notes.
Apr 10, 2012
I love my lamp.
I bought the lamp to be able to see better while doing craft projects and reading. I really like the almost like sunlight effect. It is very effective for what I needed.
Feb 20, 2012
Great Lamp when you need glasses to read
This floor lamp is the BEST. I need to use reading glasses to read and my table lamp doesn't give me the light I need in order to read books that are small writings. I couldn't be happier with this lamp. And the fact that the light is like natural light is so much better than ordinary lights. I wouldn't want to live without this lamp.
Dec 11, 2011
Excellent lamp for arts and crafts
Very useful for an office or work-table area. I would recommend.

Bell & Howell Lamps
The Bell & Howell lamps are stylish and practical. I use them to brighten uo my bedroom and living room. I love the full spectrum lighting for reading, especially. I purchased both the desk lamps as well as the floor lamps. I even bought some for gift-giving. They are great in every respect, and I like the fact that they are energy-saving. Deb

Perfect for someone with limited vision!
My father has very limited vision in one eye for reading. This product is great! Really helps him to continue reading!
May 31, 2011
It's Great
I have my full-spectrum desk lamp on my computer desk - it gives me light where I need it the most. My eyesight is not the best and this lmap is a life-saver! The socket doesn't hold the bulb in very well, which is the only complaint I have with the lamp.
May 18, 2011
This lamp puts out a great light. It is not harsh at all. I use it to work on the computer or on crafts. It was very easy to put together.
May 02, 2011
This item is a "must have" for crafts.
I use this when I need to sew a button on a shirt or when I'm crocheting. I've used it over my craft projects which helps reduce eye strain. I love it and I use it to brighten up whatever I'm working on especially items with small details. A "must have" light for all who do crafts, knit, crochet or sew. It's ideal for reading also.
Apr 11, 2011
I Love my Bell and Howell Lamp
I do a lot of needle point and reading. The light brings out the pattern so I don't have to strain my eyes, and don't cast off a glare when reading. I can move it from room to room if need be without a problem. I have recommend it to a lot of my friends.
Mar 25, 2011
great for reading and sewing
purchased this lamp for my wife, she uses it for reading and sewing. it works great. light shines where you need it and not in other peoples eyes
Mar 18, 2011
Second purchase of product
This works great for sufferers of depression or seasonal affect disorder. The first was purchased for home use. I'm purchasing a second one for office usage. I have a supply of bulbs on hand, but have not yet replaced the first bulb.
Mar 18, 2011
Perfect lighting!
I truely love this light! It lets me direct the light where I need/want it. I can even turn the head down, and have minimal lighting. It is great!
Feb 05, 2011
A Great Buy!! The Best Reading Lamp!
I purchased 2 Lamps, one for each of us to have on the corners of our couch. We had been looking for a long time for the perfect reading lamp and found these. They provide us with the perfect amount of light and so easy on the eyes. Two additional bonuses are the easiness of adjusting the light to the best angle and the price.
Nov 29, 2010
Best Lamp I have ever had!
Great lamp totally adjustable - great bright light - I use for night reading, etc. Love It!
Nov 21, 2010
Love this,it is great for my Birds also
This is a great value for the price. I got it for myself but it has proved an asset for my Doves too.

Full-Spectrum Lamp
Best money I've spent fighting the winter blues. Noticed higher energy and alertness levels right away.
Nov 08, 2010
Easy on the eyes
We have owned this lamp for about 3 years and love it. It is used in a corner of our bedroom for my husband to use while playing guitar. The light makes it easy to read music and is comfortable on the eyes. It feels good inside our bedroom to have natural sunlight during the winter. I would recommend this product.
