Default Advice on buying one of those new thin lightboxes, please

I would like to hear from those of you who have purchased one of the new thin led light boxes, what you like and dislike, where you bought it, how much it cost, would you buy the same one if you had to do it over, etc. Thanks in advance!

I bought this one from Amazon a year+ ago. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Very happy with it - use it for applique tracing. Easy to use, easy to store. MUCH better than my old lightbox...a cast off X-ray lightbox!

Hope you find one you like!

I got this one from Amazon. It works great and the price is reasonable. I mainly use it to weed vinyl that I have cut on the Cricut. It can be used for anything a lightbox is needed for.

I made mine. I went to the Dollar Tree and bought a clear box, about 3 inches high, 9 by 11. and a push button light. Dollar each. lol works for me.

If you look in Amazon’s Lightning Deals section they always have them extremely inexpensive. I got a big A4-sized one last year for about $12. Love it.
