10/10 Would Recommend
I bought this as a gift for a friend, and he really enjoys using it. He usually uses it for tracing and creating art, as he is an art major. Pros: bright LED light, smooth surface, moderate workspace, clean face.Cons: fairly short cord, lacks rubber grip to prevent sliding, legs don't lock into place.In his words: "it gud 10/10"

The best light box ever
I bought this light box for a steal on Black Friday but I will tell you this light box is worth the money either way. It's LED so it will never get hot.

Great Light Table
from Carrollton, TX
I use this product to marker over my finished pencil lineart (I prefer to have artwork without inked lines). The A3 is definitely larger than what I expected. It's great to have the extra room though. I usually draw with this on my lap.In use, I usually draw my rough lines on my Canson Heavyweight sketchbook. After refining the lines, I place the paper on the light table and then do a rough color test with Copic Alcohol Marker pad paper. For my final drawing, I use the Copic Marker Sketchbook paper. It is able to punch through the sketchbook paper, the alcohol marker paper, and the Copic Marker Sketchbook paper at the same time. I am also able to punch through 140 pound water color paper, though that is probably the limit of the light. It is unable to go through 400 pound arches water color paper, though that was expected. All in all though, this definitely makes my life easier. I am still really new to the world of copic markers (I was into watercolor, but the clean up time made it difficult to get into as a busy college student). It definitely kills having to attempt to marker over a line art without any light at all. You should save quite a few trees in the process too. The seamless top I think is the real seller for me though, there's no gap or seams or shifts in elevation as with the light boxes we used to use at my high school / college. Pros:Build Quality is amazing. The acrylic top is smooth with no seams or gaps present on the top. The Acrylic top is about 1/8" thick, extremely durable and probably enough to hurt someone. I did try my best to force flex the pad by grabbing the edges and attempting to twist the pad. Even as large as the A3 is, there was no flex at all. Very solid build. The light is very even and the brightness is not bright enough to cause any eye strain (Though you'd be pushing it trying to draw in complete darkness with this being the only light source). It doesn't get warm at all even after 4-5 hours of solid use. Do keep in mind the edges are slightly brighter due to the light table being edge lit. Cons:I wish the power cord was longer, as I did find it short having to go from the wall plug to the top of my table top. It is about 6 feet, but 10 feet would've been preferred.The legs that enable this to tilt aren't the greatest so I wouldn't push too hard with them. They get the job done, but I'm sure with a hard push, you can probably crack the legs. My whole art table tilts / I prefer drawing flat anyway, so it doesn't bother me too much. I think Copic should place a piece of foam on top of the drawing surface for shipping protection. It is covered in plastic, but when I got the unit, there were minor scratches and nicks present on the drawing surface after unboxing it. I think a thin piece of foam would help a lot. Finally, there was this strange residue present on the drawing surface when I unboxed it. I cleaned the entire top with water and it went away, but I would just like to point it out and tell everyone to clean the light table top before the first use. Wish list:I wish the LEDs would be dimmable and be even brighter, giving us the option to punch through thicker sheets of paper if needed or tone down the light if working on thinner sheets of paper. Larger rubber feet (Right now they're 1/4"...something like 3/4" pads would be better) and two rubber feet in the center would also be a recommendation.Maybe consider having a power brick (Probably 2-3 feet away from the wall plug end) instead of the transformer plug? It helps to save plug space. A word of caution:If you are coloring directly on the surface / have markers on the surface like I do, be very careful to watch for ink splatter on the light table surface. Clean them up as quickly as possible (I would imagine the color being harder to remove if the marker ink dried on the surface).

Light it up!
By Mrs. Samad
from Las Vegas, NV
My daughter been asking for a light box for over a year, to the point she made on out of a plastic box w/. Flash light. Very creative I must say. So when I see the light box on Dick Blick for 25% and free shipping I had to buy it for her. She absolutely loves it! She uses it every day so far! Thank you so much for having great prices for my little artist!
