    Why would you want a light on top of your monitor?

    • +2

      I had this question too and I think the idea is..

      • No table space taken up by a table lamp (more minimalist desk setup which is all the rage)
      • No glare on your monitor from a desk/room lamp depending on position
      • Focused light directly on your desk rather than also lighting surroundings (might be useful in shared environments)

      Also it is colour temperature adjustable which is nice / good for the eyes at night

      Got it from an eBay sale some time ago. Absolutely love it. So convenient. Best type of desk lamp

      honestly, I dont think you really understand how much better it is until you get one.

      I hate not having one in the office… the bright indirect no reflective lighting is amazing.

      • how dark is your office??

  • FYI: bought 2 with about a year apart from each purchase & 2 years or so later, only 1 is working. not really sure why it stopped working, but i don't think i'll be getting this again.

    • This is a new product so I think you bought the old one.

      • yes, both the lights i have are the old ones — but what exactly is new about this version? will it keep working beyond 18-24 months?

    • Is your battery flat in the controller?

      • nope. combined both lights to be controlled with the one controller. tried swapping the broken light bar into the holder of the working light bar — didn't work. tried to twist to see if the metal contacts were broken — nothing.

    • Similarly bought two at the same time, and had one just stop working properly just out of warranty.

      Whilst you joined 6 years ago and have posted…nothing? lol

        True - but I also haven't been socket puppeting……

    I got one of these, definitely not worth it at this price, get a cheaper $15 or $20 one, the only thing the cheaper one doesn't have is the wireless controller for adjusting and turning on/off the light. I hate the round controller on the Xiaomi because if you press it at an angle, sometimes it doesn't work.

    • Could you recommend one please?

    • +1

      Agree! Always find im pressing the round button multiple times to get it to turn off.

    • I haven't used a cheaper one before, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but quite often with light products (this thing, torches, general bulbs), cheaper products have a crappy colour, and/or a lower brightness, and/or a bad UI. And I was over that years ago.

      Having said that, I've only got the first gen of this light, so uh, it was cheaper. And I agree with your thought on the remote control somewhat. You do have to be rather precise with how you press it sometimes.

      And while I have no experience with the Arlec light bar you linked, their LED strips that I've used have had a good colour output. Ie a proper white light, not some purple or green tinged attempt at a white light.

  • What's "new" about this version?

  • Does this help you see the bargains better?

      JV has an alt!

    Got one of these, good price, first light bar but rate it so far. This model (MJGJD02YL) integrates with Home Assistant fairly easily.

    Shows up like a regular colour/brightness adjustable light.

    alternatively, you could directly connect using the ID/Token method, I believe this forces LAN connection mode vs cloud but not sure. You would need to:
    - fix the IP address in your router
    - get the IP address/token using this tool (https://github.com/PiotrMachowski/Xiaomi-cloud-tokens-extrac…)
