World's first e-Reading Lamp by BenQ

World's first e-Reading Lamp by BenQ

“Designed and powered by BenQ, a world-leading human technology and solutions provider with an innovative vision in improving the experience of life in every aspect since 2001.”

Lighting is everything in the world of being a product reviewer. Having the correct lighting can make or break the quality of your video review. Natural light is ideal, but of course it does not stay light all day. When the darkness falls, I often find myself trying to find the perfect light setup to capture my footage for my reviews.
Today, I am delighted to introduce to you the BenQ e-Reading LED Lamp. It has some great features that I am excited to share with you-my readers. It is my hope that you will be as excited as I was when I saw all that this lamp has to offer.  So let’s take a look at some of the product features.

Key Product Features
When it comes to features, the BENQ e-Reading LED Lamp does not come short of having them. There are plenty of features that will allow you to maximize each setting you place the lamp in. Here are some of the key features below:

  • EXTRA-WIDE AND EVENLY BRIGHTNESS DISTRIBUTION: An expansive coverage of 35 inches provides 150% wider than average lighting offered by a standardized desk lamp to light up every corner of your working space.
  • SMART E-READING MODE: Ambient-light sensor will be activated with a touch of the control ring to detect the brightness of surroundings. Contrast and reflective glare is reduced on your screen by adjusting for brighter illumination at the sides and dimmer in the center of the screen, providing you with the best lighting for e-Reading.
  • BI-COLOR LED: Enjoy different lighting moods for work or leisure reading, simply by turning the knob to switch easily from cool white tones to warm white tones. When you want to focus at work, turn to cooler tones; if you’re in a mood of relaxed reading, switch to warmer tones.
  • SLEEK, MODERN DESIGN: The unique lamp shade is designed to look like a smile-shaped curve to remind the user the beauty of a smile.
  • ENJOY FLICKER-FREE, GLARE REDUCED LIGHTING: Enjoy evenly-distribution, comfortable and safe illumination for any task at hand.
  • HASSLE-FREE ASSEMBLY: Assemble this lamp in 5 minutes with a screwdriver. No complicated instructions!
  • HIGH FLEXIBILITY: Easily adjust the lamp arm to the angles you need for the perfect lighting.

“When it comes to features, the BENQ e-Reading LED Lamp does not come short of having them.”

My favorite features were the easy assembly, the touch control sensor (metal control ring),  and the pressable knob (adjust brightness and color temperature). I will go into more detail about my thoughts of each feature I liked!

Easy Assembly
Upon receiving the BenQ e-Reading LED Lamp, the first thing I noticed was the large box. I’m not sure why I thought the lamp would be smaller. Even my wife saw the package and thought this lamp must be massive. Sometimes, we can imagine things worst than what they actually end up being. This was one of those cases. I put off trying to assemble this lamp based on what I perceived on the outside-without even opening the box. I thought I’d have to use a lot tools to get the lamp to look like what I saw in the pictures!

Boy was I completely wrong! After I took the pieces out of the box, I realized I could have put this lamp together two days ago in 5 minutes. The assembly is really easy for anyone to use. You will need a mini screw driver (I used a thin pair of pliers) to screw the hinge + LED combo to the base. It is imperative that you make sure that the LED light +hinge is secured to the base. The base is very heavy and you do not want to land that on your foot. Luckily, there are warning stickers on the base to warn you about this so please be advised!

Metal Control Ring Sensor
One thing I struggle with as a tech geek is reading the instructions to a new toy or gadget. After I plugged in the lamp, I immediately wondered how do I turn this thing on. I couldn’t find an on or off switch. The funniest thing happened when started touching various components: the metal contrl ring turned the lamp off and on. I was amazed at this technology because I am accustomed to pulling a string a lamp. I spent an additional minute in amazement on how I used the control ring to turn the e-Reading lamp on.

The Pressable Adjustable Knob
The adjustable knob can be pressed in to toggle between adjusting the brightness or temperature of the lighting. By default, you will be able to adjust the brightness of the lamp by twisting the knob clockwise to brighten the lamp and counter-clockwise to dim the light. If you press the knob in, it will allow you to change the color temperature of the lighting. In other words,  you can choose between a cool white tone or a warm white tone. The cool white tone lighting is ideal for work and the warm white tone lighting is ideal for a relaxed type setting. I see a lot of ways I can use these settings for leisure and for work.

The Bottom Line & Where to Buy
After spending some time with the BenQ e-Reading LED lamp, it is safe to safe that it will be replacing my old desk lamp in my office. The main reason is because I am able to change the light settings to a cool white tone or a warm white tone. This lamp also will be helpful when I am filming products for my reviews. It will help improve the quality of my photos and videos when I am in low-light environments.
So I know the burning question is: “How much does this lamp cost?” Well, the lamp cost $249.00 on Amazon, but it is well-worth the price.  To better convince you that this lamp is worth your money, check out our hands-on video review of the LED lamp below!
