usable but disappointing
I bought the P210 as a desk lamp, and I should have gotten something much larger. But that's my fault. The lamp looks good, is easily adjustable, and gives a good light right under the head. But unless I position it to the left of my work, it throws a shadow across my working hand that obscures what I'm writing or reading.

But the worst thing is that the little screws holding the glass shade in place, which have to be removd to install the bulb, are both nonstandard (in the U.S., anyway) and soft. My Philips screwdriver wouldn't fit, and the small regular screwdriver (forgive me if I don't know the precise hardware names) that I used stripped the screwheads. I had to bend the soft metal of the frame to release the shade, and then bend it back after installing the supplied bulb. I only hope this bulb lasts a LONG time!

I didn't return the lamp because that's a hassle and I did finally get it to work. But for a Kovacs product, I'm disappointed.

One other thing: the seller's website explicitly said that the bulb was NOT supplied, so I purchased the recommended bulb. But a bulb came inside the package for the lamp, and the instructions clearly implied that it was supposed to be there. So I bought an extra bulb I might not need. (And the same thing happened with another lamp I bought from Lighting Universe at the same time.)

just what i wanted
I bought the P005 for a table next to my bed in the sleeping alcove of my studio apartment, and it's almost perfect. The only thing I miss is a dimmer control, which one of the reviews on the Lighting Universe sight said it had. In fact, the review said that with an incandescent bulb, you could turn the lamp on and off or select one of three light levels just by touching the metal frame. Alas, this doesn't work with the one I got; the only way to control it is with the on/off switch on the power cord.

Nonetheless, it gives a nice amount of gentle light for that location. I looked for George Kovacs designs, and this one is excellent.
