Good for 140lb watercolor paper, not for 300lb
from Woodland Hills, CA
Comments about Artograph LightPad Pro LED Light Box:
Does not shine well through 300lb watercolor paper as advertised. If a drawing has any detail at all, even in ink on mylar, you will not find it through 300lb or 200lb paper for an accurate transfer. It's fine, even excellent for 140lb on the brightest setting. It's very heavy and fragile. But, it is the brightest light pad I could find. Sigh -- what I seek apparently does not yet exist.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Love this light board and the various settings (e.g., brightness and Kelvin/color temperature). I couldn't improve upon the features that it has. Wonderful! This is a fantastic LED light board for a reasonable price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Product surpassed me expectations, great ability to modulate both the brightness and color of light produced and at max. brightness will light up a room. Light weight, sturdy construction with a nice edge for a T-square. Can't say enough good things about the product. Really like the padpucks that allow the unit to be rasied.

The first one was defective but the second one works fine

I would have given this product a full five stars but the first one sent to me was defective with half the screen not displaying the full color temperature range. The replacement works fine, however, and Blick's return service is excellent.

This is really a quality light pad with all the features to make it a dream to work on. The dimming feature provides comfort for the eyes which becomes more and more important as we age. Additionally, if you are like me and work later in the evening it is possible to dim it down so I can get to sleep at a reasonable time (I won't say what that time that is!!! LOL). Actually brightening or dimming it down and changing the light temperature helps me see various parts of what I am drawing better.I used it to copy a drawing on the Strathmore 300 series bristol vellum. The Artograph lightpad pro 1200 was bright enough to draw directly on another sheet of the same paper in order to make changes for my next improved version of the drawing. I didn't even have to photocopy the previous picture on the thinner paper or start all over and measure!!!! What a time saver!!!I love the size. It is perfect to sit with my legs up and put a pillow under the light pad on my legs and the end in my lap to draw. I can lean back to support my head and so that my neck and shoulders do not get sore from drawing.I think that the ability to change the color temperatures will be invaluable when I start drawing in color or on tinted papers. Since I want to learn more about drawing in perspective, I can hardly wait to get my straight edge going on this drawing surface!!!I used to do commercial calligraphy and teach it and I wish I would have had this for my writing line layouts. It is so light and easy to handle.The customer service is A+. I needed some help and talked with a real person who knew what he was talking about. He was easy to talk with and understanding. He quickly and generously solved the problem.Mine came with 2 pad pucks and a special cloth to keep the surface of the Light pad polished.Overall, I can't think of any cons. It is solid quality and works really well. It just makes a part of drawing that can seem somewhat tedious at times much faster and more fun!!!Extra Accessories:I also really like the Artograph lightpad storage bag for this. It is padded and has zipper pouches on the outside for the power cord and the pad. It has plenty of room for pad pucks (which do really work) and for extra stuff. (plenty of room for pencils, erasers, sharpeners, and so forth.) It also has a large separated compartment next to the light pad pouch, big enough for a pad of paper, (my11x14" went in with generous room to spare, it looks like the 14 x17" pads would fit in there also.). The lightpad pouch even has a velcro strap to keep the pad from accidentally sliding out. Further, there is a large zippered compartment on the back of the bag for even more storage. The handle straps are very comfortable and there is a long shoulder strap option too. The light pad itself is not heavy so I don't mind adding extra stuff. For me this is worth getting since I do not have a dedicated place to put my lightpad and leave it ready for drawing all the time. Of course, it will be great to take on trips too, or if I will need to use it to work with future clients at their workplace.
Absolutely the best!
from Dallas, TX
it's light professional looking, easy to use and the warm / cool option is a huge plus! it's extremely bright and went through cardstock without a problem. my only issue is that it comes with a regular adapter and not a usb one. but other than that, it's wonderful!
