Z-Bar High Power LED Desk Lamp - Warm White

Rating 4.25/5 ★★★★¼ 

A floor lamp won’t do when you’re working at a desk and need good task lighting.

This lamp is good for people who want:

  • An energy-efficient desk lamp, yet with good quality light for the work area
  • Task lighting during work time and muted lighting when playing computer games
  • Direct task lighting for some tasks and indirect lighting bounced off the ceiling or wall for other tasks

Pros

  • Uses LEDs for energy efficiency and long life
  • A soft warm white more like incandescent than cool white LEDs or daylight white
  • Has four intensity settings from full-on to dim
  • Amazingly flexible so you can direct light where you want it

Cons

  • Unlike some incandescent or fluorescent lamps, its light is not strong enough or diffuse enough to brighten a room
  • The warm white colour will not suit people who need sharp contrast

The few negative reviews you might find elsewhere generally complain that the light is not bright enough to light a room. That’s true. But as a desk lamp, it excels. Take a look at what it can do…

If you favor warm white for your desk lamp and want LED light, this is one of the best I see available right now. The light from this lamp will look softer to you, less harsh, than the light from its cool white cousin, but it is less like daylight.

This user review by J.W.W. sums it up nicely:

It appears to be well-made and provides adequate light at the top two settings, but be aware that LED lights like this one light the work space just below but provide relatively little diffused light to the surrounding area. Each of the three arms is about 14 inches, so you need a work space of about 2 feet square to use it comfortably. The “warm” light seems about the same color to me as the halogen I used before, though not quite as bright. The arrangement of six lights along a 14-inch arm means that I can position it so that my hand doesn’t cast a shadow on what I’m writing, a boon to left-handers. I particularly like the fact that it uses very little power. And, most important, it really looks cool on my desk.

The lamp is very adjustable, has a four-step dimmer switch, and energy efficient. Its 6 LEDs put out 120 foot-candles of light from just 9 watts of power. It is rated to run 40,000 hours before its output drops to 70% of the original level.

Remember that unless you switch off power from the wall socket, it will continue to sip power when it is off. To add an easy-to-use switch for turning it completely off, click here.
