I bought this product to help illuminate my counted cross stitch embroidery pattern as I worked on it; in particular, to highlight the pin pricks I use to mark sections of the pattern as I complete them. I imagine that I'll find other uses for it as time goes on. This is the first light box I have ever used; so it's new to me.
The light box is easy to use, it's light weight, and the light is bright enough for my needs. The size works for me, and the price point was right.
There are 2 features that would have made it AMAZING for me (but, to be fair, I haven't found this feature in any other light boards): 1) a rechargeable batter (so I could use the unit without being tied to a power source) 2) some sort of clip to hold the paper in place (allowing you to tilt the light box up while you're using it). But other than than, I'm fully satisfied with the product.
