Reading has always been one of the joys of my life but finding a good reading light is not as easy as one might think. My search for the perfect lamp has led me to the OxyLED T120 LED Desk Lamp which is not only a superb reading lamp, it’s also a great work light for those who sew, do needlework, or repair small electronics as I do.
The T120 provides glare-free and flicker-free lighting while producing close to zero radiation output which is far less than most LED lamps. The T120 sheds a wide flat light which virtually eliminates ghosting or dark spots. Incorporating a special light softening technology into its light guide plate, the T120 avoids glare which can lead to eyestrain and headaches.
This dimmable lamp from OxyLED offers 6 levels of lighting with just the touch of your finger. Touching the touch controlled power icon on the unit base will immediately generate a a cool white light which is designed to be is designed to be 5000k. Brushing your finger over each of the dots on the control panel in order from low to high will increase the brightness with each subsequent touch of your hand. I found this cool light to be the best for giving me the clean bright light I need for doing those small electronic repairs.
If you slide your finger over that power icon again, it will switch to the warm color temperature light which is said to be 3000k. This is a clean, soft light which is perfect for reading. As with the cool light setting, you can adjust the warm reading light to 6 different levels for the optimum reading comfort.
Touching the power button again, will turn the light off. Unlike other LED lamps, when the T120 is powered off, the lights on the touch controls also turn off. In my opinion, this is a fabulous feature if you have the lamp in the room where you sleep. Fewer LED lights shining in the darkness will lead to better sleep.
This light also includes a memory function which will return the light to the last selected level on the 6 level dial. It will still default to the cool light option when the lamp is powered on so if you prefer the warm light, just tap the power button to advance to that option.
The OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-care LED Desk Lamp has a life expectancy of 10 years or 25000 hours of use. That means it has a service life of 10 years without the need to replace the light source even when used 7 hours a day, 365 days a year. It comes with a 3 year warranty.

It took no time at all for me to fall in love with the T120 lamp. It came in a box that included the lamp and a power cord which plugs into the back of the lamp base. Setup doesn’t get much easier than that. The LED light is at the end of a flexible but sturdy arm that may be adjusted to the optimal position for your lighting needs. Unlike other ‘gooseneck’ style lamps, this flexible arm does not become weak like a wet noodle and slip out of the desired position. Bend it to place the light where you need it and it will stay there. The warm and cool lighting options are an extra benefit for your viewing comfort regardless of the task at hand. The only thing that would have made me like this lamp more would have been a bright red finish instead of the shiny black.
The OxyLED T120 Dimmable Eye-care LED Desk Lamp with Cool & Warm Color Light is available on Amazon for about $50. There is also a similar model, the T100 which has the cool light option only but it does come in your choice of Black, Red, or White finish. Make sure you select the correct model for your lighting needs.
