Great little inexpensive light box! Mar 15, 2009
I think this is a great product. I bought it so that I could use it to turn complex scientific illustrations into line drawings for a class I teach and it is perfect for my purposes. It's lightweight, easy to move around, and sufficiently bright to do what I need it to do. It's also a good size for the price - you can trace a whole sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper with room to spare. For anyone who wants a simple, easy to use, and inexpensive light box, this is a good choice. I imagine it might not be appropriate for very heavy use and it is perhaps not as durable as some more expensive and/or professional models. However, for anyone who will use it only occasionally or will need to move a light box around from place to place (I'm thinking scrapbookers might fall into this category), this is a great little product. I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of mine and I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

bright and sturdy Oct 15, 2010
By C. Canady
I bought this product about 6 years ago, I have dropped it over and over and the bulb has never gone out. I do my art for a living so I use it everyday, 6 years of dropping and constant use and its just as good as when I pulled it from the box. Its bright which I like. I do alot of bristol board work, and it easily goes through two pieces. I have a massive 4foot by 2.5foot custom light table and still prefer this one for its portability and durability. I have also used fabric on it, did a dark green bag with printer paper below it and I was able to see the details just fine. Not so great with super thick watercolor paper but I havent found a light table that is, just too thick of paper.
All in all its a great product

awesome little light box Dec 12, 2008
By Marissa N. Newman
i needed a light box but they're really expensive... so after searching the internet long and hard [for about thirty minutes or so] i stumble across this. it's the most inexpensive light box i saw without it being 5x7.
it's already aided me a tremendous amount and it's good enough to see through thick water color paper.
i love it.

Great Light Box for drawing and tracing Jun 13, 2010
By A. Kilgore
This LightTracer Light Box is a great item to simplify and enhance your drawing and tracing. Right out of the package, I traced a paper doll, drawing and coloring the clothes I made. The light was bright enough to see all the details, enabling coloring and shading easier than ever. The screen was large enough to accommodate the drawing paper I use, which scans to print out on regular-size computer paper.
Of course, I checked out larger lightboxes. For the price and quality, I couldn't justify the greater expense. Always need more art supplies, right?
Amazon offers this Light Box for half the list price. I checked around and couldn't find a better price. Anywhere.
I highly recommend this LightTracer Light Box!

The Dream Product May 28, 2010
By Angela James
When I recieved the light box in the mail, I was so excited. The box wasn't as heavy as I had expected, and it wasn't as difficult to open as expected.
There's no assembly required; just take it out of the box, take off the blue covering, turn it on, and you're ready to go. If you're not used to bright lights (like I am), I'd recommend taking 20 minute breaks once in a while.. OR wear sunglasses! The light of this box is strong.
I highly recommend this light box to anyone who loves to animate, trace, sew, or whatever it might be.
