BenQ ScreenBar E-Reading LED Lamp – Unboxing & First Impressions

By August 14, 2018 November 13th, 2018 Reviews


The BenQ ScreenBar is a simple and straightforward product. It’s an LED desk lamp that sits above your monitor (mounted similar to a webcam). It directs light directly downward and out onto your work surface but the key point is the sharp cutoff of the light. This allows it to theoretically light your desktop with 500 lux of light (a recommended amount to reduce eye strain) but remove any glare from your monitor.

How well it works will be covered in a future full review video.
