I was going to purchase the Cricut Brite Light for the weeding of my projects but saw it would take a week to receive. Happen to see this light at more than a third less in price and thought why not! Boy am I glad, this was an excellent purchase ! And I saved at least fifty dollars! Great investment and does the same as the higher priced name brand!
I am on my second one in a week. The first arrived bent, with the power and brightness buttons only working about half the time. It took several tries to power on and several more to set the brightness. The second one has arrived and it, while not actually bent, has the same power button issues. Dealing with the MFG is not a very good experience so far. They were going to provide a code for a free unit through Amazon, but the code does not work. When the unit works correctly, it is excellent. Very bright on the highest setting, and still pretty bright on the lowest, but the issues with this make me think it will not last, and issues with the company make me think getting them to honor the warranty will be a challenge that isn't worth the effort. If the company does not step up (waiting on info from them now) I will return this and find something from another company within the Amazon return time. I will update this review as needed.
Bought this for my wife because she wanted a bigger panel to do her crafts. It is very bright and evenly lit, but the power supply provided does not supply enough amperage and gets quite hot very quickly. The inadequacy of the supply is why this panel only gets three stars.
Shortly after using this light box it began blinking on and off. The cord going into the box seems to not be connected well inside the unit. There is no way to get in and fix it. Now it is off more than on and unusable......I didnt try using it in time to return .....Im out the money.
It is so bright you don't even need another light on! Unfortunately it was not as easy to see the lines on 651 or 631.. I havent had to use it on HTV yet but I don't think it would matter. I love it but I have to use a small lamp at an angle to find the lines that the trace pad doesn't get.
