Xiaomi – Mi Computer Monitor Light Bar review

A lamp that attaches to the monitor, is easy on the eyes and creates an atmosphere of productivity. The manufacturer Xiaomi offers exactly such a product with the Mi Monitor Light Bar. With its classy black design and the multitude of functions for individual illumination, the Mi Light Bar looks very promising. You can find out how Xiaomi’s Computer Monitor Light Bar concludes in our practical test in the following review.

Scope of delivery

The Light Bar comes in a classy black packaging. Included is a bracket that hooks directly to the monitor and attaches the LED tube to it. It has a fairly strong magnet and a rubberized surface that provides the necessary grip. The tube, in which the LEDs have been installed, is included separately in the package and simply needs to be plugged into the mount for use. A USB-A to USB-C cable is included for power, and the USB-C side plugs directly into the mount. A remote control is included for controlling the individual light modes, and it takes the form of a small station with a rotary knob.

Design and functionality

All components are finished in a classy matte black. The design of the Light Bar looks minimalistic and simple. Thus, even the remote control on the desk looks rather unobtrusive, but still chic. The angle of the lighting can be easily and conveniently adjusted by turning the tube. This allows it to be turned up to a certain angle in the direction of the user or the screen. If that’s not enough, the mount itself offers another adjustment option. The angle can also be adjusted by moving it up or down. The rubberized surface of the mount helps keep it in the set spot.

The USB power cable can either be plugged directly into the monitor, but can also be powered from any other USB source. However, the connection options are somewhat limited by the length of the cable. If you connect the Light Bar directly to the monitor, you have the advantage that it also activates when the monitor is turned on. If the monitor doesn’t have a USB port, that’s not a problem. Because as long as there is a power source, the Xiaomi Monitor Light Bar can still be controlled via the remote control.

The remote control includes the following functionalities:

Press: Turn light bar on or off
Press + rotate: Adjust color temperature
Rotate: Adjust brightness

Lighting

Illumination is provided by 80 LEDs with a nominal power of 0.2 W each. The color temperature can be adjusted as desired within a range of 2700 to 6500 K. In words, colors from cool to warm white can be displayed. During operation, the lighting intensity can also be changed. By simply turning the remote control, the light can be dimmed or the brightness increased.

The Light Bar is designed so that the light does not reflect on the monitor. Even with curved monitors, no reflections occur. The light cone completely fills the desk and creates a pleasant working atmosphere.

Conclusion

All in all, the Xiaomi Monitor Light Bar is a terrific addition to one’s desk. If you’re looking for a space-saving desk lamp, you’ve come to the right place. Because of the minimalist look, it blends in very nicely and is hardly noticeable on the monitor.

Especially at the desk at home, where leisure time and working time go hand in hand, the Light Bar has created a wonderful effect. Productivity at the push of a button! You virtually create a working atmosphere in an environment full of distractions. But even when the lighting is dimmed, the light is very pleasant, even when gaming or surfing the Internet.

With the Xiaomi Monitor Light Bar, you get a solidly made product that is very convenient and easy to control with the wireless remote. It illuminates the entire work area on the desk, while the color temperature and intensity can be adjusted as desired.
