Product Review: Ben-Q WiT Intelligent E-Reading Light

Can any lamp be worth $249?

The Ben-Q WiT can be if you think of it less as a lamp, and more of a piece of lighting technology.

For professionals who work on computers all day, who suffer from eye-strain or eye-fatigue, this piece of technology could actually provide relief. This is probably a product best suited for corporate and enterprise use. For everyone else, it may be a stretch.

However, the Ben-Q is a solid, high-quality, well-built piece of lighting technology unlike anything else on the market — with intelligent ambient lighting technology and adjustable LEDs, it’s definitely head and shoulders above any $20 lamp you’ll find at the local hardware store.

DISCLAIMER: Ben-Q sent me this item in exchange for an honest review. If I sound impressed with this device, it’s because I really am.

Technical note: For some reason, my equipment never cooperated with for this review. I probably shot nearly two hours of footage only to end up using a take with hissy audio. The take that I had clear audio had severe focus issues, and I have almost an hour of review footage with no audio whatsoever. I tried to do better, but I hit a deadline on this one…
