The Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp (AR3200) is retailing for S$318 at Challenger (Funan) as well as some other stationary shops. I recommend getting it from Challenger (Funan) as they offer a 10% member’s discount and after the discount is cost S$286.20. Do note that it is only available at Challenger (Funan) and not at other Challenger branches.
Right now the Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp is in it’s 3rd generation, I have been eyeing on it since the 2nd generation when I first saw it at DG Lifestyle Store at VivoCity. Unfortunately that store is no longer around but on the bright side, you can get it even cheaper at Challenger.
The Koncept LED lamp might be a little expensive at first glance, but if you compare it with some Phillips or 3M desk lamps, you will find that the price is actually pretty reasonable.
For the Z-Bar Slim, there are 3 colors available, black, red and silver and for each color there are 2 light options, daylight and warm light. I chose the silver color and daylight combination (Koncept Z-Bar Slim LED Desk Lamp AR3200D-SIL-DSK).
What I like about the Z-Bar LED Lamps is that the LEDs are in a straight row, this allows you to illuminate your monitor screen as well as your keyboard area. If you notice the placement of your monitor/keyboard/mouse is always in a rectangle shape. Traditional lamp will only illuminate a circular area which is pretty useless for my case.
It comes with a touch sensitive control that allow you to adjust the intensity of the LEDs. And as an added bonus, it matches the style of your iMac!
