BENQ WiT e-Reading Desk Lamp

The BENQ WiT e-Reading Desk Lamp was kindly sent to me for a review a good few months ago now and I really wanted to get to grips with how it worked before sharing it on my blog. Having redecorated every room except the bedroom and kitchen, we needed new lamps, so this arrived at an amazing time.

I am an avid reader, so if I am not writing a blog post, the chances are I am curled up on the sofa under my blanket with a book - be it on my Kindle or an actual book in my hand. On dull rainy days, I prefer not to have all the lights on in the house, I love to create an atmosphere by lighting a candle and having some low lights on. If I am reading on my Kindle, it has its own light so the low light isn't so much of a problem, but with a  book, a little more light is needed and that is where this lamp came into its own.

Now I love everything there is to love about this lamp. It comes presented inside the hugest of boxes with clear instructions on how assemble the lamp to the really heavily weighted base and then your are good to go.  It does come with instructions on how to use and plugs for use in the USA, the EU and of course here in the UK which really impressed me.  I chose the grey lamp as it works with my decor, but it is available in other shades - pink, gold and blue and it is priced at £169* and available from Amazon.

Once the lamp has been configured and set up there are just three things you need to know and it involves the grey metal ring and the white button shown below.

Once the lamp has been plugged in, it comes on immediately with no need to switch an on/off button anywhere. The white adjustment knob enables you to adjust the light between cool and warm colour temperatures as well as giving you the ability to control your brightness levels, this comes in really handy when you use a kindle to read or if you are sat working at your desk and the weather turns suddenly becoming dark. If all of that isn't impressive enough, this light will also remember the settings when you turn the lamp off and on.

The silver ring which sits on the end of the lamp, when touched for up to 2 seconds will detect ambient brightness and then dynamically adjust to the brightness level for a comfortable work environment all day and night, this is known as the eye-care mode.  Again, this is really handy when you are in the middle of a Zoom meeting or a spreadsheet and it suddenly goes dark with a storm brewing, this setting is one I didn't know I needed!

The lamp itself, which is curved gives the lamp wider lighting coverage. It has been developed specifically for the usage of monitors, kindles, tablets and other devices, and is also perfect for use in large workspaces too.

The BenQ desk lamp, thanks to its design, it distributes light evenly across the desk is measured at a 90 cm illumination range and a 150 per cent wider than any known regular reading lamp, this design helps you see everything from your keyboard to your entire desk. Its patented brighter at the sides and darker in the middle illumination is designed to also eliminate glare, so when you are using the computer, the lighting should be sufficient enough for you to see the text as well as the screen.

This really has been an absolute delight to use during lockdown, the lighting at home isn't the same as that in my office, where I sit next to a window and have amazing light all day long. I also have a desktop monitor which adjusts its brightness according to the light I have at the time, not something my laptop does.  Adjusting to working from home has been challenging enough but thankfully, this light has meant I can work easily and not have to strain to see the screen of my laptop.

Available from Amazon it is on sale for £169 here* and is worth every single penny!
