    What is the color temp, CRI, and lumens?
    A shopper on Mar 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It does not get hot if that's what you mean , I have been having mine for a year and just love it you can choose the brightness of the light .. only down side I find it has to be plugged in whilst using !!
    If I use a clear cutting mat with this, is it strong enough to use with a knife and ruler to cut paper on the surface? Or might it collapse?
    Sara D on Dec 20, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have the large version of their light box and just looked it. the top surface is 1/16" thick plexiglass, so personally I think you run the risk of potentially marring the surface and depending on how much pressure you apply you may crack it.
    By the way plexiglass is not glass its some sort of polycarbonate plastic, so it can be scratched.

    You could consider buying a piece of 1/8" clear glass to lay on top and do your cutting on that. Should not cost too much, and glass does not scratch nearly as easy as plexiglass does. Hope this helps:)
    will it work to look and photo very old negatives?
    Leonard S on Jun 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: HI LEONARD.

    THE PRODUCT IS EXCELLENT FOR VIEWING NEGATIVES BUT NOT TO PHOTOGRAPH THEM. THE TYPE OF LIGHT SOURCE (WHATEVER IT IS) CREATES A ROLLING BAR EFFECT WHEN THE SHUTTER IS TRIGGERED, SIMILAR TO THAT WHICH IS SEEN WHEN PHOTOGRAPHING TELEVISION SCREENS.

    HOPE THIS HELPS.

    Can you cut on this without ruining the surface? What is the top made out of?
    New User U on Dec 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The large version I have has a 1/16" thick or so plexiglass (or polycarbonate) on top. So yes it will scratch.

    This is the best price for this type of light box I found. anywhere. The service from this company is wonderful. Light works perfectly for quilting applique projects.

    PROS: -Amazing price.
    -VERY bright, I can see clearly through two layers of 70lb paper or cotton fabric..
    - Amazingly thin and lightweight, the illumination is dead even, no high or low areas at all.
    -You have is the ability to change the brightness level.
    -
    -You

    CONS: Takes a very light touch to adjust light, press to hard and light goes off.

    Light Pad, not Light Box!
    I bought this to use in photo-scanning some 100 year old negatives that are much larger than my scanner allows. I placed the negatives on the "light box" and used my DSLR to photograph them, then inverted them during post-processing. It worked beautifully! The surface is large enough to hold quite a few negatives at one time (larger medium format negatives). This will save me considerably more in photo processing fees than the device costs.



    My daughter also plans to use this to scan her hand-drawn artwork.

    PROS: Thin! (less than 1/2 inch)

    Light! Easy to hold in a lap, or on a light table.

    Adjustable light from barely on to very bright.

    Even illumination

    CONS: Thin! Not sure how rugged this is in the long term.

    Adapter cord is rather short.

    Surface is not glass, not sure how well it will stand up to scratches, etc. over time.

    A Life Changer
    My old light box was the fluorescent kind - thick and bulky, and a small work surface. My arms would get sore tracing large projects, having to continually hold my arms elevated off the table by 2-3 inches, and having to move my work way too often as I ran off the edge of the light box. I was seriously contemplating having a special light desk built. But this thin box has completely solved my problem, and I can put it away neatly when I'm not tracing! It's actually brighter and more uniform than old fluorescent boxes, too. It's like a dream come true. Thank you Monoprice!

    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

    BRIGHT! AMAZING!
    This thing is pretty amazing so far. Ive had it for about two weeks. I hope it lasts, cause its awesome! My only real gripe is that its hard to turn off. You have to hold the powerbutton until it goes from brightest to dimmest and then hit it again to power off. There isnt an indicator light to tell you if youre doing this right. Or if its on or off. Just one red light that tells you if the light box is powered. Its especially hard to tell if its off in daylight. You really have to look hard to know for sure. The first couple of times I learned to do this, I left it on. Over all I am very satisfied with this lightbox, its the cheapest youre going to find from an american seller. You cant beat it!

    PROS: Bright, Big, Flat

    CONS: annoying to turn off, short cable

    I love my lightbox!
    I use my lightbox on a regular basis for art quilting. It is think and lightweight so it's easy to take to classes and easy to store. I call it my happy light, especially on dreary winter nights. I would recommend this for anyone. It was one of my best buys ever.

    PROS: Light weight and durable. Easy to carry or store.

    CONS: None.

    CONS: None

    great solution for classrooms
    hurrah for LED. no more clunky light boxes or bulky light tables. and because students can be rough, I re-used the little rubber corner protectors from the packaging to protect the corners permanently. not as sleek, but hey... kids?
    the students love these thin portables. not boxes but lg light pads. great item for any artist.

    Great product, couldn’t be more pleased.
    Well designed. Well packaged for shipment. Works great. I have used many different types of light boxes over the years for photography and graphic arts work. I’m impressed with this design and compact size. I love it. Highly recommended.

    Love, Love, Love it! Great for tracing out my subjects before I paint them in watercolor. Easy to use and store-I keep mine on its side in the original box but it could sit on a spare shelf ready for action.

    Amazing Light Table!
    I would absolutely purchase this again, especially when compared to others on the market. I had an old school one for years (9"x12"x4") it was a beast. I don't even notice this is there when I'm working. The working surface is soooo large, I can work on larger watercolor pieces that were a pain to do before. I couldn't be happier.

    PROS: Lightweight. Thin. LARGE surface. Price.
