Benq screenbar desk lamp

There are two very special computer desk lamps in this world; One is the unforgettable opaque side desk lamp that I've been using for as long as I can remember, and the other is the BenQ ScreenBar eReading LED Desk Lamp. This is another beast altogether.

When BenQ decided to ship this lamp to us, we admitted that we weren't overly excited about the prospect of reviewing it, and there was no disrespect for lamp lovers. However, I have been using this lamp for several weeks, I never thought I would say that for a lamp, but it is absolutely fantastic.

With that being said, this thing appeared on the shelf at a price considered expensive by best keyboard standards. We tested this advanced desk lamp to find out exactly what it offers and whether you can justify its high price.

Very expensive

I will keep this part short. The lamp box feels very basic but very sturdy. The lamp itself is packaged in a thin piece of plastic and placed in a plastic mold. However, the stand and controller are not as luxurious as LED lights. They just sit inside the plastic mold. The

comes with several BenQ product cards, but there is no instruction manual. BenQ decided to change the outer sleeve per the instruction manual; we found it great.

The following is a list of the main specifications of the lamp:

When I opened the box of the BenQ scanner, the first thing I noticed is the high quality that it actually looks like. The lamp adopts a simple lamp tube design and is made of high-quality materials. It has a brushed metal theme and there is a slim LED strip inside that can be tilted to any position you want. Both the

stand and controller have the same luxurious feel and fit perfectly with most monitor themes in our office. The design of the stand is great and it is not actually attached to your monitor. It uses a balanced design and hangs from the edge of the screen. Despite the attractive design, we tested it on various monitors with varying degrees of success. Some people feel very safe; others feel a little shaky. The

cable that connects the light to your PC feels very sturdy, which is always welcome on any hardware peripheral. The controller is the main hub of the light and is connected to the PC (VIA USB) and the light (VIA Micro USB).

Most of the functions of this light come from the driver itself and the settings provided by it. However, before entering the drive, let's take a look at the performance of the LED lights. The

LED is very high quality and very bright. It provides a maximum brightness of 500 lumens, which for me provides a lot of light at night. It's worth mentioning that the lowest setting available is 300 lumens, which is pretty bright too.

Let's fall into the controller. The

controller has several different functions, including automatic dimming, adjustable brightness, and light color temperature settings.

is almost exactly the same as what is written on the can. There is a wheel in the center of the controller, which serves as the main regulator. There are also two switches on the controller, which can activate the automatic dimming setting or toggle between the brightness and temperature adjustment.

Simply select the brightness setting and dial (using the scroll wheel) to the brightness you want.

This is self explanatory again. After setting the brightness, click the toggle button to activate the temperature control. Now you can change the warmth of the light according to your preferences. Whether you want it to look cool or warm, the choice is yours!

Unlike many lights that we have seen, this light provides you with an automatic dimming function. In theory, this function can provide the best brightness according to the amount of natural light in your room. It works by using a sensor built into the lamp, which detects natural outdoor light and adjusts the brightness and warmth of the lamp accordingly.

As we approach the end of this review, a big question that lingers in our minds is; is this product really worth it?

Well, if you break down the product into basic elements; build quality, longevity, function, features, and performance may have to be said yes. It has all the rich functions mentioned above and provides a sleek and stylish appearance. However, when you realize that for the same price, you might be able to buy a superior keyboard or an unsuitable RAM kit, you will begin to reconsider the claim.

I think it depends on how you use your computer and how you prioritize the light source for one night. For example, if you are a gamer, you might not rush to buy one of them tomorrow. You are more likely to spend cash on the latest gaming mouse.

Or, if you're a designer or writer who likes to use pencil and paper every now and then, I can't think of a better option now.

tell us what you think in the comment section below, is it worth the money? I still cannot give a clear answer.
