    I use a full spectrum compact fluorescent bulb and find it wonderful. Price? about 8 bucks at Home Depot. From what I have read there is no difference with the Ott light.

      As Sewista posted, full spectrum lights do function much as do the Ott.  Difference, MO, might be the styles and perhaps wattage.  The FS are 13 watt, I think.  Ott now has an 18 watt.  I noticed a noticable difference between my 13 watt FS & 18 watt Ott.

      The clamp on Ott, w/o magnifier, I use at my cutting table is one I've yet to see offered in a FS.

      My curiosity was piqued.  A Google search gave me insight to there being FS lamps with greater wattage tha nthe Ott.

    can you use the OTT bulbs in regular fixtures, transforming them into good lamps for sewing room?

    The light bulbs I have all over my house are exactly the same as the bulb I have in my expensive ott light which I bought before you could buy them at any store.  My lamp is also heavy and tippy and I have it out of the way.  With these bulbs you have to have an open light shade-no closed fixtures.  They last much, much longer than regular light bulbs and make a much better light.  Buy the lamp you want and can afford and add the light bulb.  My favorite light that I couldn't live without is a large heavy brass antique floor lamp.  The wide globe opens at the top and the light is fantastic but I have to have my sons buy the large bulbs for it in Denver.
