  1. John Banes

    This is a great unit. I highly recommend it. Sits right at my desk during the morning.

  2. Matt Anderson

    I really love this lamp. It works great and I have had no problems with it.

  3. Thelma Harris

    Bought my light in 2003 and ordered extra bulbs. My light experienced heavy use, in addition to using it up close for SAD, I also used it as a light in my dimly lit office at work. It has run an average of 8 hours a day for 5 days a week for the last 9 years. It finally gave out in the last week. I never used the extra bulbs I ordered. I have ordered a replacement and of course it is from Northern Light Technologies.

    Unit is very portable and lite. Breaks down and stores in case very well. Only have had it a few weeks, but it is a quality product. I would buy it again. It is a little on the expensive side.

    So far this light box has done a good job at keeping the SAD away. I just got it back out, I used it last winter and it kept my mood pretty stable. Since I don’t want to take a chance on the depression coming back, I’ve started using it earlier this year. I know it is pricey, however my insurance reimbursed me for the cost of mine.

  6. Kirsten Bradley

    I bought this light five years ago as directed by my doctor. I cannot tell you what a difference it has made in my mood. Since it is surrounded by tall trees, my house is dark, so I use my lamp all year long. If I miss a morning I am sluggish all day. I would recommend this light because it is well designed, sturdy, and attractive. In fact, I am going to buy the floor lamp model for the den and keep this one in my home office.

  7. Tim Howard

    Quite happy with this lamp. Sturdy construction, ready to use right out of the box, lights up the room and has helped keep the December blahs at bay. So far I’m happy and would recommend this as a quality product that lives up to the manufacturer’s description.

    After moving from sunny Southern California to New England several years ago, I developed Seasonal Affective Disorder. My doctor recommended daily light therapy. I now use the desk lamp every morning from October through March and I truly feel an improvement in my mood and energy level during these dark months.

  9. Karen K

    It really works. Great quality. Been using for 5 plus years.

  10. Eileen

    I’ve had this for several years and it still works like new. I dont use it consistently but when I do I feel it helping. It definitely improves my mood, and I have severe depression that also requires several medications. I would definitely recommend this light. A little pricey but worth the money.

  11. Crissy

    We have had our Travelite for 15+ years, so far have never had to replace the bulb and it is so helpful for SAD! Originally got it for my husband’s depression, but after moving from Denver (where almost every day is sunny) to Boston, I started using it too. With anticipating us being home, together, so much more this Fall & Winter, I am about to buy 2 more lights so that each main room we use will have one. I am recommending them to all my friends too! Thank you!

  12. Russell Monroe

    I have used this unit for the past half dozen years to replace a Northern Light desk lamp (used it about 20 years) that was too large and bulky when I switched to a smaller desk space. It works as well, but due to the lower power must be fairly close to your face (14″). You will feel the warmth. Fluorescent bulbs do fade with time and eventually burn out, so should be replaced regularly. The one design aspect that has been a problem is that is does not sit balanced on its stand. It tends to fall forward due to a misplaced center of gravity. I had to add a counterweight to the stand base with heavy magnets to keep it upright. This seems like a simple thing to have changed in the design.

    I have been a customer of Northern Light Technologies since 1992. Have had 3 different ones over the nearly 3 decades. Went from a HUGE box on my desk to the Travelite I have now. Having this light has made it possible, even joyful, to live in the Pacific NW. There is much less light & plenty of overcast skies in the off Summer season.

    I was instructed by my Dr. to use 1st thing in the morning in a dark room to get the biggest hit of serotonin to carry me through the day. Generally have breakfast, coffee while catching up on email or the days news.

    N.L.T. has been here with me for decades & their lights have given me a quality of life I never had before.
    Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

  14. CK

    I’ve used this for many years. Well made. Insurance reimbursed with prescription . No issues. It doesn’t fall forward as mentioned by other reviewer.

  15. Betsy Allen

    I have used this light for many years, since 2005. It is very portable and I take it back and forth to work often. The light bulbs last YEARS!!! Thank you for such a great product.
