Rated 1 out of 5 by Rehi Expensive Flashlight
It does hold a charge, is easy to use and is well designed. However...
It actually makes me tired and depressed and is irritating my peripheral vision, even at it's lowest setting. I really don't understand how this blue light is supposed to brighten up my day since all I want to do is punch it's lights out!
This product was clinically proven using what? ants?

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiscriminatingConsumer Best Energy LIght
I've used GOlite BLUE for many, many years. It helps me get through the long winters here in Minnesota.
The automatic shutoff (using the timer) is one reason I think this model is the best. My GOlite BLU is set for 30 minutes so when it shuts off, I know I'm done. With other lights, you need to keep glancing at the time or other indicators.
I've tried different forms of light therapy (even from other manufacturers) and conclude that Philips is the best and the HF3332 is the best of the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kim68 Good augmentation for combating SAD
I've been using this light for SAD and have had great success with it. After only a week's use I found my mood improving (or at least not getting worse). And I can feel a difference when I forget to use it for a couple of days. I've used this light for a several of years and find it really useful, in combination with other therapies, in treating depression.
I particularly like the size. I just use it anywhere, next to my computer, in bed, on the couch, wherever. Also, I can easily bring it with me when I travel.
My biggest complaint is that programming is not user-friendly. I'm surprised it's not very intuitive or easy (especially if you lose the manual). But overall I like it a lot and would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chonita Love my SAD LITE!!!
Helps me when I'm feeling down. gives me the Boost of energy and brightens my eyes to strive on. I would recommend this idea to other MOMS that are needing some much needed light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth220 Excellent for Increasing Energy in the Winter
I've been using this product for a couple years, and I find my energy levels are far greater in the depths of a Canadian January/February. Keeps me alert and focused, and, as funny as this sounds, I find the blue light cheerful - like looking at a blue sky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BruceD bad battery; no repair available
Shortly after the 2-yr warranty expired, beginning the third winter of use, the battery failed to fully charge, requiring recharging every 2 or 3 uses. I was informed that there is no available repair for this and it is not covered by any warranty. Very disappointing for something that is so expensive. What good does it do if the lights in fact last as long as advertised if the battery doesn't?

Rated 4 out of 5 by kimb234 Blu light works for me, battery not great
Prior to buying this model, I had another small Phillips bluLITE. When these were on sale at Costco (Less than $100 - good deal!!) I bought one, recognizing that after 5 years my old one might be fading.
Unfortunately, within the first week of use I could see the battery life on this new goLITE was not what it should be. Currently I get 3 uses out of it. (I use it for approx. 20 minutes in morning). This isn't near what my old one could do. That is disappointing.
I also found this one a bit more complicated to get programmed. I ended up with an alarm on that was difficult to clear (necessitating me getting my instructions out to figure it out :(
I absolutely believe in the benefits of these light lamps, I regularly suggest/encourage clients with depression to use them. Just not impressed by the battery life on this specific model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ianrey I should have known this device years back!!!
I am living in a humid country with plenty of sunshine (most of the time) Yet, I have not always been exposed to much sunlight as I would have wished because I am always under a roof with plenty of air condition, and also because I feel that Sun exposure is not good. To sum up, I have been years in lethargy and have always thought I am anemic, or I may have low blood or some underlying condition that I do not know. This affected my work and my life so much so I researched on how to improve my energy and I came to this device.
I used it at my workplace and it benefited me as I know longer am as tired as I was back then, and my mood has been better. I will definitely keep this device as part of my life wherever I am (whether I'm in a cold or humid country)
