View film transparencies, trace graphics, or even give yourself light therapy using this Ultra-thin Light Box from Monoprice!
A light box has many uses, from film and photography, to outdoor advertising, to graphic design, and even to medical therapy. This LED light box features a 24.5" work space, as measured diagonally. Overall, it measures 22.4" x 14.6" x 0.3" and is powered using the included 12VDC AC adapter.
PROS: Lightweight. Thin. LARGE surface. Price.
PROS: Thin - great for tracing, etc.
Big - I can trace a lot more before having to move my work
Bright - Lots of light
Dimmer - Great for when it's too bright (like for tracing transparency)
Auto Dim - A big plus
CONS: Adapter cord is a bit short
PROS: Thin and Bright with dimmer
CONS: None that I've found
PROS: Huge, thin, light, long power cable, biight, fade-on/fade-off power switch.
CONS: IT doesn't have an Indestructible surface so I trim negatives and transparencies.
the 140 LB paper allows the tracing to shine trough. It is less bright but 300Lb also works fine.
PROS: Bright light great for tracing.
Very tin, takes up very limited space in my studio, (threw away my old style light box.
The surface is so thin that it is like you are working directly on the flat surface of your desktop.
The light switch dimmer works very well. I heard all of the complaints about the sensitivity ofthe switch,(control). It is a great switch with use of eye hand coordination that is very very easy to control.
PROS: Very nice item
CONS: The edges give off too much light - would prefer a covering. I am placing electrical tape along the edges in order to make the lightbox look better on my desktop while left on.
Bought the product (20MAY16) with standard 3-5 day shipping option, arrived on (26MAY16). When shipping, invoices say the 'Estimated Shipping Date' - which is when the product is shipped from Monoprice.com. Nowhere on my invoice did it ever say when it was expected to arrive to my house. There was a tracking number included, but I had to keep clicking it to see where it was, when it would arrive.
I also am confused on why the box it was sent in was so HUGE! Seriously, the shipping box was 4 times bigger than the actual product sized box. It was also dented to all hell (both the shipping box and the product box) because it wasn't packed with enough shipping paper to keep it from being damaged in transit.
With weird shipping issues aside, this light-table is quite handy! I bought the Large Ultra-thin Light Table on sale for $46.61. I like that it has a cold (blue) hue light to it, instead of a warm (yellow) toned light. Its bright enough to (almost) see though two thick mixed media sheets. The thicker the paper, the darker the contrast of the bottom sheet needs to be. The adjustable light hasn't really come into play for me personally, but I may use it in the future.
PROS: + Bright blue-hued (cool) LED light.
+ Thin but large light table, able to accommodate 11 x 17 (in) sheets.
+ Power cable is just long enough (could be longer).
CONS: - Shipping procedure could have damaged product (see review).
- Slight flicker at lowest light setting.
PROS: Large size
This is a great size for burning silkscreens without getting into light tables etc.
