I didn’t know it was possible to be amazed by a desk lamp, but the BenQ ScreenBar e-Reading Desk Lamp has amazed me. While I do have a traditional desk lamp, I’ve often felt that I needed a bit more light. But a bigger lamp would take up more desk space, and moving the lamp would put it right in the middle of my work area. When BenQ sent me their new and innovative LED desk lamp to review, I found my lighting problems had been solved. Here are 5 reasons why the BenQ ScreenBar is the computer lamp you’ll wish you always had.
1. No Electrical Outlets Needed
Simply plug the ScreenBar into any USB outlet and you’re ready to shine some light. You can use your computer, phone charger, or even a power bank to power the ScreenBar. When it’s switched off, the BenQ ScreenBar remembers brightness and color temperature settings.
2. Sleek Space-Saving Design.
I love the fact that the BenQ ScreenBar balances perfectly atop your monitor so it doesn’t take up any desk space. It uses a counterweight design so it can sit on top of your monitor without any screws or tape. I installed my e-Reading Light on my BenQ Monitor. It can fit any monitor that is 0.4″ to 1.2″ (1 to 3 cm) thick.
3. Light where you Need.
I was initially concerned that the long design of the lamp would only illuminate a narrow part of my desk. There was no need to be concerned as it shone more than enough light on my workspace and keyboard. You can adjust the light 20 degrees by twisting the lamp bar towards or away from you. The lamp’s asymmetrical optical design ensures that there isn’t any glare off your monitor.
4. Auto Dimming Feature
The BenQ e-Reading Lamp has an ambient light sensor that detects the brightness level of your room. With a touch of a button, you can automatically adjust the brightness level for your work environment. You can manually adjust the brightness using the touch button on the bar as well.
5. Adjustable Mood Lighting
You can change the color temperature of BenQ ScreenBar by selecting from 1 of 8 different light color temperatures ranging from warm light (2700k) to cool light (6500k). The warm light helps you relax and re-energize while the cool light helps concentration and boost work efficiency.
The BenQ ScreenBar e-Reading Lamp is available for sale on Amazon for just $99 (with FREE Prime Shipping.) The BenQ ScreenBar also makes a great gift for any gamer or serious computer user!
