BenQ e-Reading LED Desk Lamp Review and Giveaway

I have a ten-year old son. Now that he's all grown up, it was time to get him a desk for his bedroom. Along with the desk came a need for a desk lamp. The timing couldn't have been better as I was asked to review a reading lamp from BenQ.

The BenQ e-Reading LED Desk Lamp is a rather large rotating lamp that goes around and tilts up-and-down, in-and-out thanks to a ball joint to give you a wide range of coverage. The light part at the top offers a 35" wide light range and provides more than enough lighting for your typical homework / reading needs at a typical desk. For the desk we just purchased, the lamp overshadows the desk as lamp is over-sized. BenQ does offer a smaller model, too, if this is too large.
Besides size, the lamp provides some interesting lighting options. While it doesn't exactly offer multiple color lights, it does offer multiple shades of white lighting. You can go from a warm white light to a cool white light with a couple taps and turns of the selection knob. If you have different lighting needs based upon the task at hand, you won't have to swap out multiple lamps. There isn't exactly an on-off switch, instead, all you have to do is tap on the top of the arm. This takes a little getting used to for someone my age but my ten-year old adapted to easily.


The lamp checks in at a price point of $189 over at Amazon. You have multiple choices of colors for the base and top of the light. We chose the silver variety, though could have gone with a red, white, green, or gold model instead, plus some others. Some were out of stock at our time of ordering so, if the stock situation remains, you would either need to wait for the color you desire or select a different model.

My son loves both his new IKEA desk and the BenQ lamp. I frequently find him playing with all the different lighting shades available and just tapping away, turning the light on and off. I suspect he'll get bored with the novelty of the on-and-off tapping at some point, but for now it is something he enjoys.
