This is a great tracing LED light pad – it’s so light and thin you can’t actually call it a box – that is remarkably easy to hold and carry around. I bought it to use for cel animation, and have taped an animation peg bar to it so that it holds standard 8 ½ x 11, 10F (10 frame) animation paper, which fits very well with a small margin on the top, bottom, and sides. It’s great because I have both Acme and round peg bars, so I can use either type of paper, and it’s so lightweight that it’s easy to turn around when I need to. It also works well as a light surface for tracing.
It has a long (almost 7 feet) power cable that is lightweight, flexible, and well made, that plugs securely and unobtrusively into the tracing pad and any USB power source. I’ve used it with laptop and desktop computers, a standard USB wall plug, and a portable rechargeable power supply. When it is plugged in, two soft blue LEDs on the side of the pad glow to show it’s powered, which is a thoughtful touch. I generally don’t like the bright LEDs that are included with electronic devices, but these are not excessively bright and are really well placed – you don’t see them directly when you’re working on the top surface, only when you look from the side or back. The main surface LED lights give a bright neutral light that is distributed evenly across the entire surface by a thin diffuser layer underneath the drawing surface.
The surface itself, although it is very lightweight, is wonderfully smooth – it really feels like unbreakable glass without the weight and is a pleasure to draw on. A touch sensitive button in one corner controls the LED brightness, and is flush with the top surface. You touch or tap it to turn the lights on/off and cycle through the three brightness levels. The brightest level is quite bright – you can trace through heavy weight drawing paper and I have even used the surface as a close-range soft light for macro photography with my phone and DSLR. The darkest light level is bright enough to draw or trace from one sheet of opaque animation paper onto another or for several layers of onion skin/tracing paper. It’s restful and I’ve comfortably drawn for hours with it. The middle brightness setting is halfway between those two. The lighted drawing area is 9″ x 12″ with a 1 1/2″ opaque black strip along the side that you can use to hold the pad. That strip has the on/off brightness touchpad, which is easy to access while you’re working.
The pad came very well packaged, wrapped in a padded foam bag with four foam corners that hold it off the surface of a very sturdy reusable box. The packaging is so sturdy and convenient that I’m using it to store the pad and carry it around. I can fit 100 sheets of animation paper, a couple of pencils, and an eraser in the box with the pad and cable – it’s great.
While I was searching for light pads, I was concerned that this one might not be well made because it was one of the least expensive ones, but the construction of this light pad is completely solid and the design is simply brilliant. I’m very glad I purchased this from Ticktech – they have one of the lowest prices for this tracing pad and their support is amazing – very friendly and thoughtful. Much to my surprise, after I had received the pad and was already thinking this was a great purchase, without my contacting them they followed up to make sure everything was okay and extended the warranty for free.
This has been one of the best purchases I’ve made and the entire experience has been great from start to finish. (Incidentally, this review is only motivated by the fact that I really love this tracing pad – I am an actual purchaser and paid full price for it.) Thanks to Ticktech for this excellent light pad – it’s a great addition to my studio!

December 27, 2017Verified PurchaseMy daughter wanted this both for tracing patterns and for viewing X-rays (also from amazon). When it arrived I was disappointed because the light is covered in black dots as other reviewers have mentioned and shown photos of. However, we quickly realized that the light is bright enough to show through multiple layers of paper, so now we use it with a white sheet of paper and it works great. In the picture I attached, it’s on the dimmest of 3 brightness settings. We can even put an X-ray on the blank paper and then cover the X-ray with yet another sheet of paper for tracing the shape of the bones!
