Had to repair LED alignment

By Hal

A properly manufactured product should not need repair after initial purchase. This light box arrived with misaligned LEDs, fortunately the screen lens can be removed and the LEDs repaired. Cheaply made with inadequate adhesive strips on the LED array. Essentially I paid $160 for a product I had to repair to make it worth the price paid. The really sad thing this product is Made in USA, this used to mean value. No more. I cannot recommend and will probably end up taking the existing LEDs out and installing brightness adjustable LEDs. Gave two stars because the purchaser can repair the product.

Solid, good

A good, solid starter model that I'm using with satisfaction as I delve into lightbox photography. I can see why other photographers say to get as large a box as you can handle/store, but, for my beginning purposes, this is a good learning, novice tool.

Works, but cheaply made.

Right out of the box the tracing surface was badly scratched, and in general it seems to be cheaply made. It works though.

Totally functional. Plexiglass is roughly cut.

I would buy this product again

I am using the lightbox for photography and am very happy with it. It seems well made and arrived quickly.

On receipt had to repair the Light Box LEDs

By Hal

On first use I noticed the lights were uneven, quite a few dark areas. Taking off the lens I noticed the very cheap tape had lifted and the LED strips were not straight causing the uneven light and shadows. Using very sticky tape, I anchored the LEDs, and using canned air removed numerous bits of stuff floating in the box. After replacing the lens, the lighting was much better and without the dark bits floating inside. This product is made so poorly I am surprised the box says Made in the USA. This light box replaced one that quit working right after the 1-year warranty expired, I am sure this product will require regular maintenance to keep it working beyond it's warranty. I rated 2 stars instead of 1 only because the consumer can repair what needs fixing, and if necessary replace the LED strips entirely.

Love it!
