    I have several Ott lights. I think they are the best. When I am not sure about the colors I am mixing, I always stick them under the Ott light. Problem solved.

    I've even gone so far as to take a bolt of fabric outside to match it to a paint chip. It was a green that just wouldn't behave in the store. So the staff allowed me to take it outside! They got the sale - enough fabric for curtains.
    I don't have an OTT light, but in my sewing studio, I have natural flourescent lights and love them. My new machine also has 5 lights built in and it's great.

    I have three Ott's. One floor model from eons ago. At least twenty years old. I just replaced the bulb in it last year. I have the desk top one that when you fold up the light it turns on. Had that one about 15 years and never replaced the bulb. I now use it to do schoolwork. It also has a swivel base. Thr third is the same one only has a magnifier. DD uses it to do her crafts. It is about 10 years old and have never replaced the bulb.

    My DS had the Daylight one and hated it.

    I use Reveal bulbs throughout the house and they help with my glare problem.

    I bought my ottlite task lamp(folding type) 15 yrs ago and
    I've not changed the bulb yet.
    I have 2 of the task lamps that I use daily either behind my treadle machine or my electric machine.
    Also have 2 ottlite floor lamps and they are still on the original bulbs too. I know they are at least 10 yrs old.
    I have never tried the other lamp that you mentioned, so I don't know.

    My Ott lights are 12-13 years old, use them every night and still using the bulb that came with them. Can't beat them.

    I love the Ott light. My daughter found it at Odd Lots for much cheaper than JoAnn's has it.

    I have three floor model Ott lights and one clip on. Some I have had for at least twenty years and have only had to replace one bulb. I also have a floor natural light with large round magnifying section with light all around that I bought at a stitchery shop twenty years ago. It is fine for stitchery but no good for quilting.

    I sew with Home Depot's Daylight lamps, also have one by my reading chair. I love them. Mine cost $15.00 on sale--usually are around $20 for the desktop model. Floor models are 10-15 dollars more.

    I have three Ott Lights in my home. One is the folding kind and two are on stands. One of the stands is by my husband's chair. I love my Otts! I have had them for a long time and the bulbs really last. I haven't replaced one yet (knock on wood :) ).

    I bought mine at Joann's on sale.

    I have an old 60 watt task light directed at my machine work area...when I purchased an Ottlight I found it wasn't as bright, so I returned it. Is the "light" from the Ottlight so much superior that the amount of light is immaterial?

    Ott light is great I have several. I bought several from Joann's but a little secrete, One I bought just up and one day did not come on. There was no fix here in US. I ended up jus donating the light and buying another one from "JoAnns" I have the table light and the floor light and they are wonderful but I have seen other lights that give as much light as the ott's.

    It's Ott for me too. I have them everywhere I do any sewing. The den, my bedroom chair, and of course in my sewing room. In fact, I have three in there.

    I've had one of mine for almost 6 years and I've never had to replace the bulb and the other one for about 3 years and never replaced that one either.

    I thought the Ott lights were "natural light" so there shouldn't be any difference except in brand name. I have the small Ott and take it with me to quilting classes. Also have a different brand and can't really tell the difference. I think you can buy a "natural light" bulb to fit any of the Ott style lights.
