Rated 5 out of 5 by RockinRobin Life Changing!
This little but mighty light is super simple to assemble and use. Stop the antidepressants and buy and use this light! I am a seamstress and have it next to my sewing machine for use while working. Put it next to your computer. I had a lifted mood and increased energy from the very first use. I worked as a social worker in a Skilled Nursing Facility where we documented the decreased need for antidepressants when we used light therapy. Even won an award for our project so it is not just me. Do yourself a favor and spend the money to make sure you have a happier 2016.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadman Useless piece of garbage.
I can't stand this thing. I can't figure out how to set the controls for what I want and there are no instructions on the thing. The alarm goes off forever until you stop it and the light is blinding. All in all I would say it is the most expensive lowest value item I have purchased in a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mamarosie The gift of light!
My mom gifted the goLITE to me for Christmas this year. It is now permanently affixed on my desk at work, unless it's traveling around the room visiting my co-workers. Who also have had great results! It's fun and so easy to use! We have thoroughly enjoyed this gift of light in our billing office, and look forward to many happy months of winter ahead!
Thank you Phillips! (and mom)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisainthelight Small, easy to use and effective
I needed help with winter blues. I was seeing a definite pattern of having the blues set in as days get shorter. I would find it difficult to concentrate and to get things done. I find that if I use the light for 15 minutes most days while I am having my morning coffe, this does the trick for me! My exposure to therapy lights had been pretty much limited to TV sitcoms, so I was thankful to find that the device is not huge; it is the size of a large slice of bread. There is no need, in fact it is not recommended that you sit staring at it directly. You can read or sip coffee with the light beside you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by redhead83402 A true blessing to our family!
My husband had been dealing with increasingly more severe depression every winter ( we live in Idaho, where winter can last up to 6 months). I was at wit's end to know what to do with him, as he had no desire to do anything for himself. And he refused medication of any kind. Finally, someone mentioned that he might have SADs, and that we should look into it. I did a LOT of research online, and found this golite for about $130, and it was the best investment I've ever made! That was about 5 yrs ago, and this has been working ever since! I know it sounds crazy, but this really does improve his moods. If you do this, take the circadian rythm test first, so you know how long & best timing to use the light, & I also reccomend a timer on the lamps, ( we just used a cheap chicken-timer from the local hardware store ~ it doesn't do the gradual thing, but it does work) as this is a cue to the brain to wake up, which then enables the SADS sufferer to be able to use the light, which makes everyone else a LOT happier. ;-D I have been telling people about this awesome little light for 5 yrs now, I TOTALLY reccomend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ASifrit Great for depression!
I moved to Tacoma, WA where the sun shines 18% of the year. The sun simultor and the goLite Blue have really helped my depression! I highly recommend to anyone.
