        Comments about Hakuba 5 x 7" Lightviewer 5700 Lightbox:

        This light box is already my third one bought. Right after received it, I found the size and the brightness is far better than I expected. The box is so thin that only a little bit thicker than a AA battery diameter, which makes it easy to be fitted in my already crowded bag. The light plate is bright and color is good that I can check 4 frames of 135 film in one time. Another thing worth to be emphasized is the brightness and color reach their stable state quite fast even when it is powered by AA batteries. That is awesome since my previous light box need approximately 3-4 times time to get stable performance.

              Good light, the coverage is mostly uniform with a small amount of fading in the corners. Great size for viewing slides.

              Nice size. Easy to use. Well made carrying case. Light not strong enough thus images tend to be weak.

                Was used as a backlit surface for a trade show exhibit. Works on batteries and supplied wall-wart power supply. Was lit for 8 hours a day for 3 days with no problems. Runs cool. Compact size. Worked very well, but I would have liked it to be a little brighter.

                Comments about Hakuba 5 x 7" Lightviewer 5700 Lightbox:

                I hoped to use the viewer to sort 35 mm transparencies, and it seemed nicely designed for that purpose. But, the batteries run out before I can get through a sorting session and the AC adapter will not plug into the unit. It looks like it should, but it will not go into the jack. [...]

                  Comments about Hakuba 5 x 7" Lightviewer 5700 Lightbox:

                  My main use is for mounting medium format 6cmx6cm 3D slides in special frames. The light is bright and even over the whole light area. The texture of the lighted surface reduces chance of scratching film against dirt grains. The protective carrying bag is very useful. The whole device gives an impression of quality. The plug in power supply saves batteries, which otherwise would be used up fairly quickly. Bulb change must be done by dealer.
