Nope ... but thanks for the heads up.  It's a bit price-high for my immediate situation, but I do like it.

I have this very similar one instead:

And we like it a lot at home. It found its way to my kid's desk so I don't tie with it anymore, but I really liked it for tying as well.

Interesting. I like how it runs off of USB, and if I did the watts-to-lux calculation correct, it has better output than my current travel lamp, a 13 watt Ottlite. Definitely more affordable on Amazon.

I've been using one for a few months and like it.  Slim profile and bright.

Just ordered the D20. Looks very handy to bring to club ties.

Cheech has one I'm pretty sure. When I saw it at the Wasatch Expo it was really slick and had a great light output.

I know this is an old post but I'm new to the forum.  I'm wondering if this light is bright enough for good fly tying.  It would be replacing a 25w incandescent spot that is very bright, but also very hot.  I like the features but am concerned about brightness.

Welcome to the site, Cody.

There are a few threads on here that deal with different lights.

 

However, it's always a "hot" topic, so you'll probably get some good answers now.

Welcome to the forum.
Dont discount a simple replacement of the incandescent bulb for one of the newer LED bulbs. Plenty bright but not plenty hot.

Bimini15 - I've thought about doing exactly that, however the D20 is a stand alone and my current light clamps on.  The stand would offer more options.  Plus, the various intensity settings and the cool, warm, daylight options are very nice.  I just don't want to make a $$ mistake.
