The BenQ Screenbar has a great blend of practicality and innovation. It has stayed attached to my SW271 editing monitor since it arrived, and it is the perfect way to add a little ambient light to my working environment without resorting to more intrusive overhead lighting. I particularly enjoy the easy control over color temperature and brightness and the clever design that assures that none of the light spills onto my screen and interferes with my work. The low power consumption along with the unobtrusive design makes this an easy recommendation for those looking for a streamlined lighting solution.

When it comes to your eyes, you need to be sure you use things that don’t strain them. The BenQ ScreenBar not only offers great, configurable, and dimmable yellow to blue lighting scenes, it also has a zero-footprint on your desk, all without screen glare. I love the lighting scenes that can be created with ScreenBar from very dim and yellow for night-time, to bright and blue for day-time and high concentration. I like the soft-touch buttons and it’s very easy to control. It’s a great addition to night-time work environments where you need the focus to be your desktop.

The BenQ Screenbar is the modern approach to desk lighting. It’s unique build and easy application, offers the user an excellent coverage of illuminance across their desk, without taking up any desk space at all. Ideal in both dark and light situations, thanks to the automatic dimming function. The LED source means its energy efficient and requires very little power, allowing it to be powered solely from your computer or laptop via USB. With zero glare on our screen while testing, it made for the perfect desk lamp.

The Screenbar is one of the best solutions to a lighting problem that has existed since the dawn of computing. The controls are easy and power consumption is low. The ability to tailor the color temperature to your taste/environment/ mood is a huge bonus. I see the screenbar being used on my desk for the foreseeable existance of the universe!

The BenQ Screenbar is truly a impressive device to add to anyone's work environment. Its simplistic design and well engineered components makes it a stylish addition to any desk. The different light temperatures and brightness makes the Screenbar useful in any situation be it reading a book or just browsing the web in the late hours of the night. The angle of the light also prevents direct light from entering the users eye making it really comfortable to use. It doesn't take up precious table space which is its biggest selling point. Overall i really love it!
