How bright? The light has three level of brightness. On its brigtest setting the amount of light it produces is similar to a 60 watt CFL bulb. I measured its brightness with a lux meter at 19" (bright mode is 565 lux, medium 227 lux, and dim is 91 lux) and compared it with a reading I got from a CFL bulb at the same distance (527 lux). The spotlight it generates is somewhat smaller than a CFL bulb. It is sufficient to light the entire large format book, but not enough to light my entire desk surface with the same amount of light - the edges of the desk are darker. In the video you can see it lighting a large book, the book is fully in the light, but you can see the edges of the desk that are not well lighted. This is a nature of LED lights and to be expected.
The lamp has a nice large touch control. I like that it is large and position on top of the light panel. It is easy to reach and easy to control.
Assembly tip: the base has a screen which needs to be loosened and then tightened after the arm is inserted into the base. This holds the arm securily attached to the base.
To summarize: I like the long neck and that I can re-position it in many way.
