Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

**EDIT: I have no idea why the photo is displaying this way...

Just got it today and I'm not impressed, but I'll review more once I have it running. It looks better off than it does on. When it's lit up, you can see the not-so-great spray job on the globe. There are some imperfections/smudges near the bottom of the globe and I'd say about 50% of the globe is red/pink. The green, yellow and blue sections are very narrow.

More later, but I have to say, I'm disappointed.

Thanks Erin. I hope to hear from Jim some more on this lamp too. He will be brutally honest yet fair in his review too. But so far between you, Jim and Tim (with his 50th Grande) my money is being spent because I am going to want these too.

Two coils. I will run it tonight and get a video. The flow was amazing, but it's only the first run.

Erin.  I like the way the color banding looks on your globe.  I hope the flow is really nice.  Seems to me like the current Chinese production works better in large globes.  One coil or two?

Well, I woke up this morning to some amazing flow on this thing. The colors are just kinda muted though, due to the crummy spray job. The flow is great, the paint job is not. I'm not sure if I will keep it or not. Video coming soon.

I just fired it up tonight. It won't be in full flow until after I'm in bed. The liquid does appear to be clear however. Jim's looked so vibrant and saturated with color, but this one doesn't. I wonder if it's possible that some are done better than others.

Sorry to hear it's less than expected, Erin.  I was hopeful on this one, too.  I'm curious about the flow.  Is it close to the Heritage Grandes?  IMO the Heritage Grandes are the best lamps LL has made in past 15 years.  It can be done.

Here's a comparison between the imagery on lavalite.com, amazon.com and mine lit up. I'll post a side-by-side when it gets flowing...
