This is the second lightbox I have, the other is a Philips large light box which is no longer made, it still works but is getting old; I have really bad SAD right now, so decided to purchase a new light, and was under the impression that this one was full spectrum, which I'm now unsure about. However, it is incredibly bright. While the old one was originally 10,000 lux, it's grown dim, while this has a far more powerful light. On the other hand, the older one has a knob which allows you to gradually increase the amount of light, whereas with the Medisana you just have an on/off button so are hit with an immediate intense light. I'm not sure I like this sudden assault on my eyes.
I know that after a few days of light therapy I begin to feel better, so this will certainly have the same effect, but the build, while being nicely shaped, is not that stable: the surface you put it on really does need to be flat and level. It's also worth noting for those in the UK (me) that it comes with a two-pin plug, so an adaptor is needed.
The most puzzling thing about the contents of the package was that it included a square plastic plate and five screws which don't appear to fit anywhere, and there are no instructions about this part. I still don't know what it's for.
With hindsight, I may have gone for one of the smaller, cheaper light boxes, or another with a gradual turn on knob, this one is a bit expensive for what you get, but not dreadful, hence the four stars.

I'm very pleased with it and would recommend it. The casing is grey plastic and looks quite sturdy, though it would probably suffer damage if it was dropped on the floor. The supplier is apparently German, but it is actually made in China - which is good, because all the best gadgets are made in China these days, including a Hitachi hard drive I bought recently.

I have it sitting on a bedside table so that I can dose myself with light while listening to the news in the morning. It has small rubber feet, but it shifts a little on the shiny surface when I push the ON button - I'm going to buy some bigger stick-on rubber feet to stop this happening. When you switch it on, it comes to life straight away, no spluttering. And, as claimed, it makes no irritating noise.

The light is well diffused - you can hardly make out the fluorescent tubes behind the panel. It's pleasant to look at, warmer than the usual fluorescent though cooler than a filament light bulb. It is very bright but you can look directly at it without discomfort. It's not advised to do this for more than a few seconds though.

I have another much cheaper SAD lamp in the study, hanging on the wall behind my computer (you can't do this with the Medisana). This one gives a colder light, splutters when starting up, and hums. You get what you pay for.

A really good piece of kit for fellow sufferers; it doesn't hum or vibrate and becomes a much cherished friend! I am used to seeing it around and it doesn't look that bad anyway. I paid the extra for it and it was worth it
