              This is only for use in a small darkroom. I use it in a 10x6 space and it's perfect in a stationary position. It is portable so you could move it around in a larger space.

                    Compact and adaptable, but ideal for small spaces only. Mount low and close to work area.

                        This is a solid little safelight. However, it was initially too dim for my liking. I replaced the original frosted bulb and amber filter with a clear bulb and red filter to let a little more light through. Now it fits my needs perfectly.

                              Works great in my small darkroom. Easy to move around and is sufficient for my needs. Doesn't fog paper.

                              The light works well, and it is great that you can get other filters for it... BUT, they are hard to get off. That is the only real con I can think of. You can use it mounted on a wall or standing free if you don't have a dedicated dark room (like me).
