Revvs me up for the day!Dec 24, 2007
By L. Nesbitt
I actually bought this from the Verilux website (sorry Amazon...) but wanted to put in my 2 cents. Although I agree with other reviewers that it seems quite cheaply made, it's handy, lightweight and compact. Plus Verilux lets you return it for a full refund (postage paid) within 30 days if it doesn't work. The woman I spoke to at Verilux said I'd know within the first hour if it would work for me. I've been using it for just a few days, but it helps give me energy and seems to make me happier. Not that I've been depressed really (lots of good things in my life just now). But it's been a dreary winter so far and I was finding myself just dragging around and feeling generally unmotivated and very irritated. PLUS, all I want to do is eat carbs (sugar!) all day. Hence the dreaded holiday/winter weight gain! Since using this lamp, all my symptoms have eased a bit. Which is pretty amazing considering it's nearly Christmas -- a hyper stressful time for me and no opportunity to do much exercise! I say try it and see. You've got nothing to lose.

Verliux Full Spectrum LightDec 06, 2008
By Colette M. Herrin
The first day I used this light - I could feel a positive difference in my energy level and my over all well being. I use the light everyday for 30-60 minutes. I like the size and portability of it. It does not require a lot of space.

Bright and white light-easy on the eyesFeb 24, 2007
I agree with the other reviewers that the lamp is made very cheaply and durability is questionable, but it does have a 3yr. warranty. I was fortunate to buy one when there was a promotion, so basically BOGOF and for that reason kept it at a 5 star rating. If I'd paid $90 a piece, then I would rate it a 3. As for the light, I was amazed at how bright and white it was at the high setting, which I like for my office while working on the computer. I placed the other one on my nightstand and use the lower setting. It's perfect for reading and really seems to give my BR a calming ambience. I haven't used them long enough to determine if it will help w/ the winter blues, but think it might. Also one of its best features is flicker-free illumination without generating EMFs. For those of you that use feng shui, this is very important.

love itNov 27, 2009
By Susan Phillips
I live in central new york and couldn't stand to be without this in the winter. Have had it for a year now and use it every day, sometimes for hours - in the summer I keep it up on top of my fridge to brighten up my dark kitchen, and in the winter it supplies the ambient light for my office. I rarely put it directly in front of me because that would cut down on the time I could use it. So it gets a ton of use, and after a year the original bulbs are still going strong. Also it seems to be far more durable than it looks - it has fallen to the floor a couple of times (bad kitty!) and held up perfectly.

Great for SADMar 01, 2008
I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), so I needed a light therapy lamp to get me through the winter. This was the least expensive one I could find, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Bottom line, it works! I feel like I do the rest of the year--alert and cheerful, instead of sluggish and grumpy. If nothing else, it helps me wake up on a gloomy day.
I do worry that its construction is a little flimsy, but the tradoff is in the price and the size. Its small size makes it a great desk lamp.
I'm very happy with my purchase, and I recommend it to all my friends.
