July 19, 2018 - table lamp
When BenQ told me they were promulgation over their new and softened light bar to review, we wasn’t certain what to pattern and after regulating it for a week or so, we can quietly contend while we am still not a 100% certain we know a value proposition, we can contend that it creates for a glorious lamp. That said, a BenQ ScreenBar Plus e-Reading light bar does accurately what a advertised to do, improved than many of a foe (as distant as we am aware) and facilities some good build peculiarity and specifications. This is a central examination of this extraordinary small product.
The BenqQ ScreenBar Plus e-Reading flare is radically a high peculiarity LED frame that is designed to lay on tip of your monitor. Featuring reflectors that extent a spectrum of a light to a unequivocally parsimonious flare it is designed to discharge a glisten entrance off your shade and also urge a contrariety and colors of a row while wholly educational your list to a friendly 500 lumens.
The BenQ ScreenBar Plus e-Reading flare arrives in a reward wrapping in a box fit for a keyboard. The unboxing knowledge is clearly meant for a high-end marketplace and a pattern and materials used in construction are equally stout and of a high quality. The bar itself is neat and stylish and can simply roost on many complicated LCD displays.
Setting it adult isn’t too many of a hassle, we only need to mislay a electric plaque from a controller and block it into a PC. The light tone heat is controllable from 2700k all a approach adult to 6500k. The auto-dimming underline uses a light sensor located on a controller to boldly adjust a lighting power depending on a ambient light (from 300 lumens to 500 lumens).

Without any serve ado, here are cinema of a BenQ ScreenBar e-Reading Plus in action:
I have to say, if we have a timber or pellet textured table, a BenQ ScreenBar will make it demeanour positively gorgeous. That said, any specs of dirt on your peripherals will turn glaringly manifest as well. So if we wish this imagination looking bar, we improved not tardy off when it comes to list cleaning.
The 3 primary value propositions of a BenQ ScreenBar Plus over normal list lamps are:
- Unlike a normal list lamp, a reflectors in a frame will make certain that not even an iota of light from a bar ends adult on your shade to means any kind of glare.
- The list will be illuminated uniformly during a customary 500 lumens – that is apparently a many optimal lightning power for bureau desks.
- You can control a tone heat of a light bar and a light bar will always auto-dim depending on your ambient light conditions.
In other words, this is high-end bureau things that will make imagination offices (or home offices) demeanour improved than ever.
So a doubt afterwards becomes, does this flare clear a outrageous $99 cost tag? Well, that depends wholly on what kind of bill we have and what application we will get from this. If we are a tech youtube that wants to uncover off his list or are someone who has a home office, this is good value a cost tag. But if we are a infrequent PC gamer than a $99 cost tab isn’t unequivocally fit for we and to be totally satisfactory to BenQ this isn’t unequivocally a product that is targetted to we then.
In a week that we have used a ScreenBar it has proven to be unusually arguable in terms of a lighting controls and composition – in fact, this competence indeed be a good face lightning apparatus to use for streamers and YouTubers – something that BenQ substantially did not consider of during all though would make for a good use case. The tone heat controls and ambient light composition would safeguard healthy light uniformly opposite a face.
