Rated 2 out of 5 by Kitty13 from Poor Design I got this as a gift. Thank goodness I didn't pay for it but I feel sorry for the person who did. The directions make it sound so easy but it is very difficult to get together. To get it to snap together you have to have the wiring on the side, not crossing over. Doing that makes the top and bottom face in opposite directions. At least on the one I got. My husband had to help and it took him 20 minutes to get the bottom to snap in with a lot more than 'moderate pressure'. That left the top with the wire crossed over inside which makes it virtually impossible to snap together completely. As long as no one bumps it, the top will stay on with the arm fully extended so we are leaving it at that. I may end up having to duct tape the top on as someone else said they had to do. The arm hasn't slipped down yet but does not lock into place tightly. I can push it down without unlocking it. I did it by accident so now I am careful. I'll probably have to duct tape that as well so it doesn't slip down onto the plants. Not that I'm concerned with looks but it will look cheap with all the duct tape. Very poor design. NOT worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mikey G from Great design; bad execution Just received this light last night. I had read the bad reviews about problems assembling and figured its just more folks with 2 left hands who can't read instructions. I was wrong. The tower is impossible to snap into the base. It went in only after I pressed hard enough to break one of the four prongs. Lucky that the remain 3 snapped in and and did the trick. I had to use electrical tape to hold the visors up all the way as they will stay only half way up on their own. If I didn't buy this at a significant discount it would have been returned immediately. As it is I will give it a chance. Burpee, you need to do better QA testing before selling something with your name on it! You are better than this!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bette930 from Not up to Burpee Quality I bought this lamp on sale and even then it was not worth it. The plastic is flimsy. The lock/unlock mechanism for the arm length does not hold. Although it might work well, it is not something I would display on my desk. Certainly not the usual Burpee quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Byoung from Just read and follow directions! Bought on sale after reading reviews. Careful assembly required. Not having any problems as yet and feel it was a good value ( especially on sale!) Burpee customer service is excellent!

Rated 3 out of 5 by atlas from If youcan get it on sale it's OK I bought this two years ago. As other reviews have indicated it isn't the easiest thing to assemble and parts break pretty easily, especially the hood. I use clothes pins or clamps instead of duct tape to solve that. That being said, it does work, if you arew illing to mess with it a bit and can get a good price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by greenthumblady from Works great but difficult to put together I bought this and am in the process of growing my first time from seeds. I love this set up but it is difficult to put together and snap into place. I had to have my husband try and he couldn't even get it to snap together. It seems to be sturdy and gets the job done. I planted basil seeds and they sprouted within 4 days. I really like this and will continue to use it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bigz269 from Grow light works I bought this for the purpose of starting plants inside or keeping plants growing until I have/had time to plant outside. It isn't easy to put together, but it does the trick once you have solved that problem.
