Colour Name: Black A4 Verified Purchase
A group of us bought these for use in college , all was going well, until one of the power supplies blew. On closer inspection of the supplies it was found that there was no insulation between the mains terminals and the circuit board. The mains voltage had arced from the mains pins to the circuit board directly above, blowing several components. This could potentially have been lethal and caused a fire or electric shock.

As the device is so small I didn't have high hopes for the evenness of light but as it turned out the well diffused light is both even and bright with a good daylight colour temperature. It also benefits from coming on immediately. Surprisingly good at the price and well made too. A recommended product for photographers.

Having read a number of the reviews I was a little wary when ordering this product and on delivery I would have to agree with a few of the negative points:

The clips are roughly made requiring filing down prior to use,
The surface was delivered with a few minor scratches,
The power cable location and quality is nonsense (though not the terminal problem indicated in one star reviews),
The overall build appears fragile,
The unit took and age to be dispatched.

However:

The light quality is bright and even,
The drawing surface is good quality,
The unit is lightweight,
The cost is low for this type and size of light box,
The build quality is fine for domestic use (though I agree that it would not hold up to regular heavy use),
The power cable is a useful length,
The unit was well packaged and delivered in good time one shipped.

I had read review upon review for this item in it's various sizes before purchasing it. In the end it was a choice between many hundreds of pounds for a light box, or under a hundred for this light pad. I thought it was worth a punt.

In the end you get what you pay for, don't expect A* quality and construction for £80.

Yes, the edges of the board are rough perspex, does it make a huge difference to it's function? No.

The surface does feel a little uneven, not rough, but yes very slightly uneven (so slightly that I thought it was my imagination upon checking), does it make a huge difference to it's function? No, not really - perhaps disappointing if you are one who requires the surface to be exact (if thats the case then you need to collect one yourself from a much more expensive shop, a place where you can pull out your spirit level to make sure).

Don't use the clips, they look too tight and the perspex will scratch and rip work probably. I use blue tac or magic tape, coss i'm down like that and it works just fine.

Brightness? Top Marks. Straight through cartridge and water colour paper. Delighted. Slight dulling on half an inch fleck where the perspex may have been difficult upon build, does it effect the function or the outcome? Not really.

I Love it. Delighted. I was one who received a half decent model I guess - from reviews the seller seems great about exchange and refund. Bonus.

If you need or want a light box but don't want to pay through the nose, or build and extension onto the house to fit it in - this is your middle ground.

Go for it.

Good light box, does it's job well, the measurements along the top and side are helpful for accurate measuring and the power cord is a good length, not too long or short.

Only qualm I have is that the metal clips that come with it - as seen in the picture - actually scratch the glass when you put them on/take them off, so I've had to wrap my clips in paper and cellotape it on, plan on wrapping them in felt soon to make sure there's no more scratches caused. I haven't taken a star off for this as I guess the clips were an added extra.

I loved this product & had it nearly a year until the wire at the back severed itself on the sharp hole at the back. Not sure what can be done about this now.

This light box is awesome, the best I've ever owned. It's very light and is the perfect size to animate on using A4 sheets of paper. It's very bright and works perfectly in daylight, I've previously had to have the curtains drawn to get the best results out of my lightboxes but with this there's no need. The provided clips that hold the paper in place scratch the screen so I've binned them but they weren't necessary for my use. Would fully recommend.
