    What color temperature is this and what is the color rendering index?
    Michael V on Dec 4, 2016

    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 !!
    Is it dimmable, or only ON/OFF?
    Jared R on Dec 26, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: It is dimmable, but brightness is not easily repeatable. It cycles through its brightness levels quickly, and you have to take your finger off the non-mechanical switch (I think it's a capacitive-touch sensor) at the exact time when it is at its desired brightness.
    will it work to look and photo very old negatives?

    Can this be used as a light table for preschoolers or is the light too bright for their eyes?
    A shopper on Aug 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The light intensity is fully adjustable, bright to dim. It is definitely not a toy, so supervision would be important. Enjoy.
    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:)
    What is the color temperature of this panel and is the temperature adjustable?
    Richard R on Nov 2, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hey there, I’ve owned this for about 8 or more months now, the color temp is cool/white than warm/yellow. The only adjustment on this to my knowledge appears to be brightness, not temperature. Hope this helps.
    is there an easy way to wall-mount this? does it have places on the back for securing to the wall?
    A shopper on Jul 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: There is nothing built in to wall mount this. It's a glass back with four thin rubber feet. You would have to build some sort of mounting system to hang it on the wall.
    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.
    Is this bright enough to shine through flower petals? I'm looking for a bright light table for a photography project. Anyone?
    david m on Sep 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. We have 7 of these light tables. They appear to be LED lightsource. Very even light. You can vary the brightness from very dim to extremely bright. We use them in a printing application to see through two layers of paper and it works very well.

    Best Buy
    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.

    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

    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.

    Don't lose the adapter
    So, I moved about two times in a year and misplaced the adapter for this light box. Guess what? You can't purchase another adapter for this unit. They don't sell replacements, so whatever you do, DO NOT LOSE the adapter to this unit.
    July 7, 2017
    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    CONS: None
