Great inexpensive bedside lamp with some limitations
May 30, 2017
This is a good lamp contextualised specifically by the price; it is the price that matters in this review. If it was over 36 bucks I wouldn't have given it 4 stars as it is only a good lamp insofar as it is priced well. The three setting of normal light are good enough for a bedside light, although it could be a bit more warm in the colour department which is my bias, and the RGS feature is decent enough. The controls for the regular light are perfectly fine where you just touch it to cycle between the three settings although the RGB feature is implemented in a way that you have to let it cycle through the colours every time you want to set a certain colour which can be a PITA if you don't regularly use red (which just happens to be the colour I bought it for) as it stars from there and slowly goes through all the colours until you tap it to stop on a colour.
So, the build quality is objectively good. The standard settings for and operation of the normal touch light are perfectly fine.. Controlling the specific colour can be a hassle as there is no direct way to a colour other than red and the colour setting only has one brightness which some people might not like.
In conclusion if you are in the market for a cheap bedside lamp with an RGB function this is probably your best choice although if you have a few more bucks to spend you might want to buy one with a remote which would allow you to go straight to specific colours and also have brightness control for the coloured lights.
I am happy I bought this lamp as it fits my specific needs quite well but I could easily see this rated as either a 5 or a 3 for depending on what someone wants out of a lamp so consider these points before buying to see where you think you'll land.
Edit: After about a year the lamp just stopped receiving power and was rendered useless without any foul play; it had just sat on my desk. Since I registered it with Aukey when I purchased it all I had to do was send a video of the issue and my Amazon order number to get a replacement sent out to me. I didn't have to send the broken one back as I had proved it was broken while once they sent it out it only took a couple of days to get here. Excellent support from Aukey is now another reason to buy their products for me.
