Nifty little gadget - WORKS! – 2-in-1 USB Powered Flexible Neck LED White Light + 2-Blade Cooling Fan Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- the goose neck is rigid and stiff. it stays in place when you position the adapter head
- good solid connection between the adapter head and the light and fan. once you insert the light or fan into the adapter head, it stays there, and requires a bit of force to pull it out. this is good as it won't become loose
- fan blades are soft flexible plastic paper, lightweight
- light is actually very bright when close. and can offer some amount of lighting when far.
- nothing is broken, seems to be made from good quality plastic and metal
- nice shiny silver colour
Cons:
- fan is a bit noisy, but that doesn't bother me. if you use it in a library, it can be distracting to others. it would be good to use the the fan outdoors when its hot
Other:
- the USB connector should have been the same silver colour or black. the white plastic makes it look cheap.
- I dont know how long the light will last. maybe after prolonged use (5+years?) it will be dim. then you should replace the bulb, but you can't really take it apart.
- the gooseneck will probably become less rigid after prolonged use, but that's normal with goose necks.
Bottomline:
just buy it again if it becomes broken or loose or the light is dim. it's so cheap compared to other USB notebook lights. and plus it's a combo with exchangeable heads, so you don't need to lug around a giant piece of light and fan combo. compact so you can carry it around.
