Now is a good time. This one is on sale for $29.99. The shipping was $10 or so (less I think) and the price includes a bulb. I bought one and am soooo pleased with it. Not only do I get great daylight balanced lighting for projects, but it keeps me awake! I work at home and it can sometimes be a challenge to stay awake when it's quiet and I've only had 6 hours sleep. Thanks to my Ottlite I've had less naps and gotten more work done lately.
