Customers most agreed on the following attributes:
The switch turns one bulb on, then turns it off to reach the second position where it turns the other three bulbs on, then the third position first turns the three bulbs off before it turns all four bulbs on again. This rapid cycling of the fluorescent bulbs causes them to burn out quickly. The first bulb lasts about a month before requiring replacement. This is like the old 50-100-150 incandescent bulbs where the 50 watt filament always burns out first.
This provides general illumination in my study, where there is no electricity for lighting in the ceiling. The 3-way switch offers a variety of light levels. Great looking.
Adds a lot of light in a very dark room, I going to buy another one soon.
