Gimmic gadget :whistling:


I do not know if this is a "Gimmic gadget" Ppl with S.A.D. may disagree. Anythin that helps is worth every penny. I have heard these are good for people with depression too, so i gotta give this a big thumbs up if it helps in any way at all .:thumbsup:

REVIEW FROM A PURCHASER OF THIS ITEM

5.0 out of 5 stars No More Gloomy Days, 16 Nov 2009
By B. Young (Hampshire, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)
I'm one of those people who will try anything to beat the winter blues and after seeing this SAD light, brought one ASAP. At the time there wasn't many reviews but really the only thing I need to say is 'it works'. You can adjust the luminence so it's dimmed, or very bright. You can also adjust the amount of time it stays on before switching itself off, or it can be left on permanently until you turn it off again. So, imagine you're on your PC right now, surfing or Facebooking, and this bright light shining at you...what could be easier? Just give it a few days to start working. I have mine on for hours at a time.

Low energy!!...ok.....then you have them on for hours at a time and are then even sadder and utterly depressed when your electricity bill pops through the letterbox......:x

Got one of these from Maplins £34.99 as a present amongst other things for the wife at Christmas, the delivery driver said he had been delivering loads of them.

And lf the wife is SAD on Christmas morning I will sit her in front of this thing and tell her not to move for 8 hours while I enjoy the food, booze, fags and the Queens speech without any hassle!!

Heat from me and Merry Christmas to you all.

I think the idea is you get "full spectrum" light. Nothing to do the brightest or you could just buy a bunch of 100watt light bulbs and blind yourself. No idea if this works or not but it seems to me that even if it doesn't it could be worth £40 odd just in placebo effect as a present for some people.

All, if you are thinking about buying this either because you suffer from, or know someone who suffers from S.A.D, please read this website. http://www.sad.org.uk/

It is a voluntary organisation providing information and advice, in particular it provides advice on what to look for when buying S.A.D lights.

I'm not voting either way on this light as I've not investigated if it is any good or not.

Or you could buy a low energy daylight bulb to go in an ordinary desklamp and plug it to a timer switch if you shop around total cost about £15.00 all in. Have added heat as this is ok price for ready built unit.

Reading the sad.org.uk page that duffbeer49 helpfuly posted, it would appear that this light isn't on their recommended list. That doesn't mean it doesn't work, although it might be best considered in the dawn simulator category until tested and proven otherwise.

Can I politely request that the 'snake oil' types keep their unhelpful contributions to themselves. Remember that whether it works or not to you is quite irrelevant. If physiologically or pychologically it helps someone, then surely its a good thing. If you have any evidence to the contrary, please reference it and we'll all make up our own minds.

Just as you have been allowed to here, anyone can make (within the rules), any comment they like. If you don't like it, don't read it.

Just for you, I'm gonna repeat myself. I wrote... 'anyone can make (within the rules), any comment they like.' And just one last time, just for you.... 'If you don't like it, don't read it.'

I read your BS and I found it mildly amusing but if you can't take a joke then there ain't no light bulb gonna make a difference son. You need to lighten up (no pun intended!). Life is WAY TOO SHORT!

As for being a 'fool'. Well, I think I'd rather be a fool than miserable. As I said, Life is way too short. You better start enjoying what's around you. IF this light makes you feel better that's just great but for Gods sake man... don't take everything so flamin seriously!

There endeth the lesson from an old fool!

I'm interested in winding you up. Success!

Listen son, I've been around far too long to listen/read your BS. If you can't take a joke then I suggest you need more than a light bulb!

Can I politely request that you engage your brain before posting?
If you cared about SAD then you would care about the evidence that a therapy works.
This product only works in making people have less money.
Your idiotic position seems to be 'believe that everything works and dont criticise it until we have hard evidence that it doesnt work'
Thats gullible and stupid and the opposite of the scientific method- which in total makes you the biggest buffoon on this fine site.

If this thing works for you, great.

If you're the sort of person who will, or thinks they will benefit from this, then you will do well to seek out EVIDENCE or EDUCATED opinion on which to base your decision either way. That could lead you to the conclusion that it's not on the list but meets all the criteria, it could lead you to reject it, but it should be an informed decision.

If you're prepared to make your decision on the basis of the subjective opinions of skeptics who fail to back up their statements with any kind of research or reference to existing research, then I just lost first place in the buffoon contest...

apologies blasphemous. Touchy subject for me. There is a lot of evidence supporting the fact a decent SAD light does infact help people, there's years of research on it. If doctors and health professionals recommend them they can't be useless. It has to be noted though a decent SAD lamp has to produce 10,000 lux at a reasonable distance to have any effect which this one doesnt. I know you may only be joking but its seriously the harshest thing to hear when your suffering from depression trust me, thats all i was saying

Fair dues mate. I've seen and been touched by so much sadness in my life that you get a bit hardend to people moaning about not having enough sun light (I know that's not the underlying issue).

But at least we're pals again and that's gotta be worth a smile eh? http://smileys.on-my-web.com/repository/Laughing/lol-057.gif
