The perfect footprint - an excellent option
from Oakland, CA
Comments about Gagne Porta-Trace LED Light Boxes:
We decided to replace our archaic light table with this light box. It is an incredible alternative. It is virtually weightless (in comparison with a table!) and we can easily move it to where we need it and are working. It is very bright -- no worries there. It fits neatly on our table with a paper cutter and printer. Can't believe we didn't think of this before!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great replacement for our light table
By Hospital media dept.
from Omaha, NE
The level of illumination and quality is so much greater than the light table we were using.
We're using it to evaluate old negatives and slides of family history; very pleased. Thank you.
Nice and bright!

Use for tracing
This is fairly lightweight compared to its size. I got the largest light box. Easy to use - simply turn it on! There is a piece of metal tubing that can be used to elevate at an angle for easier tracing. The light is very bright which definitely helps with tracing. Overall very glad I got it. Also having the largest size allows you to do different sizes of sketches. Very happy with purchase.

It was perfect size for the students projects
Great portable drawing table
from Milton, FL
I was going to try to make a portable drawing table as our Art group meets at the library every other week. Problem is... we have flat tables, and I need a work area that is tilted slightly. I did not want to invest in a large (and heavy) table top easel and thought this looked like a good deal... made of steel, and if anything comes loose, easily replaceable at the hardware store. Company found out that there was a crack in the plexiglass (minor defect) and insisted on sending a replacement. Wow!

Solid Light-weight Light box
from Wilmington, NC
A nice strong lightbox, that will let you copy onto thicker weight watercolor papers, without having to get everything on graphite paper. May be a little strong if you primarily work in light-weight or translucent mediums. Very lightweight, so will be easy to travel with. My only concern is that there is a single wire that works to keep it at a tilt. If you put a lot of pressure on your drawings this may cause you some trouble.
from Denver, CO
Must turn lights off to see through 108 lb paper.
Quality product at a great price!
from Seattle, Wa
Gagne light boxes are super bright and very durable. This model is sized 11"x18". Big enough to do a center page spread. Just what I needed and it was on sale! One day I'll move up to something larger but for the price, this light box was a steal.
