Just venting a little. Less than a year ago I purchased an Ott-lite light (Model#T8337R) for my work area. I thought it was a nice light, not cheap but has nice natural light and included a magifying feature. It worked well until the light bulb went. This Ott-lite uses a proprietary bulb design which has been discontinued. I guess I should have known better when I bought the lamp but I am very disappointed in Ott-lite product support. Response from Ott-lite was interesting and I think indicates a little disregard for their customers. They suggested I search the internet for old stock of bulbs or that I have the lamp re-wired to accept conventional bulbs. I think a simple "sorry - deal with it" would be a better response. In any case, it is a lesson learned and I can't imagine why I would ever consider Ott-lite again.
