Something as simple as the right lamp can make a huge difference in a computer setup. Today’s sexy M3 Max MacBook Pro and Studio Display workstation benefits from a big, wide, clamp-on double-headed Pzloz LED Desk Lamp to brilliantly light the scene.

So it seems sometimes an overhead lamp can beat a monitor light bar, especially on a big, wide desk.

Sometimes an overhead LED lamp seems even better than a monitor light bar

Redditor Slight_Ad7118 (“Slight”) showcased the well-lit M3 Max MacBook Pro workstation in a post entitled, “Work setup. Studio Display & 16” MacBook M3 Max.” He runs a space-black M3 Max MacBook Pro driving a Studio Display.

Commenters loved the setup’s clean look. Some expressed surprise at the single-display focus, since so many quality setups these days go with two, three or even four external displays.

“I’m liking the single Studio Display monitor set up so far,” Slight said in reply to a comment. “I was using multiple monitors before also but quality > quantity. I think I’ll eventually do a duo Studio Display for my end game set up.”

“After using the Studio Display I can’t use any other monitor,” they added.

But some commenters fixated on the double-head overhead desk lamp arching over the top of the setup, lighting it up. Turns out his Pzloz LED Desk Lamp is affordable and recommended. And it could light up a much bigger desk than Slight’s 48-inch wide Fully Jarvis standing desk.

“Love it,” Slight said in reply to a compliment on the lamp. “Helps out greatly with eye strain and a quick vibe adjustment.” And he also agreed with a commenter that it’s a “great buy.”

But one commenter questioned that. They called it “some Chinese no name dropshipper brand with ‘new seller alert’ and fake reviews.”

With that caveat aside, Slight loves the lamp. And it costs only about $50 after a 41% discount and a 10% coupon box offer on Amazon.
