Useful, with unavoidable flaws
Really cool technology and design with a few annoying downsides, perhaps a replacement+ for your halogen lamp
Very snappy magnetic action, perfectly smooth, also fun!
Heavy base that will absolutely not shift around
Color temp., brightness, and motion, automation
App not even needed for most functionality
7.5 W USB-C charger
No WiFi – one less smart thing to worry about securing
very minimal branding, can be easily covered
Colour rendering slightly less than halogen lamp equivalent
No detailed lighting specifications available
Cheap black plastic base underside
External power adaptor
Bizzare warranty and service scheme in Canada – 2 years only, compared to 5 years in the US – only spare parts available are the power supply and cable
Black components on the otherwise all White/Silver colour option that also add a functional flaw -overheating of the lamp seperator/cover – be careful not to touch it after a long session!
Too easy to trigger touch controls accidentally
Dyson tries really hard to be the Apple of small home appliances, they get close in certain aspects but in other ways fall quite short. For example, the cheap black plastic, that add an otherwise easily avoidable functional flaw to the lamp, which also replicates the major downside of the halogen lamps its designed to replace, is really indicative of something go wrong with their design process. Why was this kind of decision made? to save a few pennies on the BOM of a luxury lighting fixture? And touted to last for 60+ years no less… Perhaps Dyson will improve on these shortcomings for the next model.
