ADD/ADHD

12/10/00

When I was the Senior Army Instructor at Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore, Maryland, I installed the full spectrum lights recommended by Dr. Martel and indorsed by US Army Cadet Command. In the JROTC program, I had a number of Attention Deficit cadets who were always moving around the room and not concentrating on their assignments. I was amazed that from the first day I turned on the full spectrum lights, these cadets stayed in their seats and on task. As far as improving learning among the other cadets, I have no statistical proof, but I truly believed these lights provided a more conducive environment for learning and thus could only have had a positive effect on learning.

To whom it may concern:

I depend on your products on a daily basis (I have an indoor greenhouse) and having something reliable and essentially hassle-free is a godsend.

I've left two testimonials on your page and am hoping to make this mythird testament to your high quality products. A little over two yearsago, I ordered both compact fluorescent and 48" tubes. They are stillgoing strong; not one has burned out yet! These lights are on 12 hours a day and have been for a two years now. I've recommended your products to several of my friends and to a few who have seen the referrral to your business on my website. Keep up the great work!

To whom it may concern:

I am writing to praise your Compact fluorescent full spectrum 26 watt
bulb. I ordered two of these bulbs to try out a little over a month ago.

I must tell you that this was not an easy decision as I had recently had a
very bad experience with this type of bulb. In early January, I ordered
five of these type from an online dealer, since this is the only place I
can really find this type of bulb, and it turned out to be a disaster. After only a few hours of use, two burnt out. Within a week, all five had blown. I could not believe it. I contacted the company and they sent me five more to replace them. Those, too, burned out within two weeks.

I found your website through a google search. It has now been over a month
and your bulbs are still functioning. I just wanted to praise you for having such a fine quality product and restoring my faith in the bulbs that I depend on daily. If all continues to go as superbly as now, you will have a very satisfied customer for life!

Many thanks,

I just wanted you to know that the full spectrum torchiere and Paralite CFL bulbs I ordered are phenomenal! The quality of the torchiere, in particular, is terrific. It assembled easily and its quality is readily apparent. It looks like a very high-priced lamp that you would find at a lighting specialty store. And replacing all the standard incandescent bulbs in our alumni house living room with the Paralite CFL bulbs has made a tremendous difference in the look and feel of the space. I am so glad that I found your company and products! Barry Freidly '69 Director of Alumni Relations Elizabethtown College One Alpha Drive Elizabethtown, PA 17022 717-361-1495 Fax 717-361-1520

I received my first shipment today and just tried my first full spectrum bulb in my desk lamp and grabbed a book to see if reading would be any easier. I saw and felt an immediate difference. For the first time in months I can read without squinting!!! I can even read the fine print on the back of my credit cards and the label on my multi vitamin bottle. Before tonight I thought I was loosing my eyesight (even though my doctor said I was 20/20 or better I could not read many things without a magnifier) but now I know it was just the poor lighting in my home and at work.

Thank you! I will surely be ordering more and will seriously consider buying some for gifts next Christmas. I'm going to tell everyone I know about your great product.

Yours truly,

Michele

The last time I ordered full spectrum lights (from another company) I waited several weeks for delivery. After coming across you web site, I placed an order for a pair of the compact fluorescent bulbs. I was very pleased to receive them in only two days, but disappointed that one of them appeared to be defective, and flickered and buzzed unpleasantly. I called your company back, and was delighted when the operator offered to send out a replacement at once at no charge to me (alas, I can't recall her name, or I'd thank her specifically). I just received the replacement bulb today, and it works great. My two calls to your company were handled quickly, efficiently, and in a very friendly manner. Having spent some time working in retail and customer service myself, I am even more pleased with the quality of service I've received from your company. It's unfortunately all to common for the customer to be treated indifferently in today's marketplace. Be assured that I will be ordering additional lighting from you in the future! Thanks again, Jeff Gregor

This is Mike Viehman. You sent me another light for my light box since one didn't work when I received it along with some extra ties. I have let it sit, untouched, for the 100 hour burn-in period and am very happy with the product and still impressed with the personal service that you gave us. I am using the free bulb for a regular socket at my grinder and it has greatly improved my knifemaking ability.

Please feel free to send any doubters tome if they wonder if you stand behind your product. You are a true credit to any business and I will be happy to give you any testumonial that you might find helpful. I have not been so thouroughly satisfied with any product and personal service in many years. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mike Viehman

I am very impressed with the service I've received from Full Spectrum Solutions. Recently, you shipped me another dimmer switch and new bulb for the Black Chrome torchiere I purchased in November 2001. I installed the switch and the light is working fine again. If you recall, last time it was a defective bulb that gave out. Since you shipped the switch and a bulb when it turned out to be just the switch this time, do you want me to ship back the bulb? Last time I shipped back the switch after the new bulb corrected the problem. Please let me know what you would like to do and I will accommodate. Given the service I've received, I would gladly recommend other people to your business. It's rare these days to receive the type of service you've provided.

Thanks again, Dan

First, I want to say thanks for so quickly sending the bulb I requested to replace the one that was broken in shipment. Second, I want you to know how pleased I am with your product (Ultralux ll). It is a well made item that throws off an amazing amount of light! It is the brightest of all the light boxes I researched before buying. Finally, thanks to your website team for providing such good information. My decision to buy from you was a result of your excellent website. You explained clearly why your product is superior, and supported that with facts. The product is as you stated. All in all, I am a satisfied customer.

Thanks again. S. Simmer

Dear Liz,

Thank you so much for your prompt service. I have to tell you how impressed I am with this company. From first finding your user friendly web site, to the convenience of having your toll free number listed on the site which I was then in calling very well cared for in answering any further questions I had. I really thought that when I was sent that one broken bulb I would have to send it back as proof. It has been a wonderful gift to be trusted - quite a relief actually. Thank you so much for being part of a first class company.

Sincerely,

My experience with Full Spectrum Solutions has been a very positive one. This company is very customer oriented. I recently received a lamp that was defective and I not only heard from the director of operations in a very prompt manner but she was also deeply concerned about fixing the issue. With sincere apologies, I was sent a replacement lamp the very next day through Fed Ex Overnight. I was also given a couple of extra bulbs for my troubles. In a world that is very product oriented, it a pleasure to work with a company that cares so much about customer satisfaction.

Dear FSS,

On behalf of our mother, our family would like to express our sincere thanks for the speedy delivery of the 55W Full Spectrum Floor lamp which we ordered for our mother. We are all extremely pleased and amazed with the prompt delivery of this wonderful lamp. Our mother is so very, very happy with the light produced by this lamp. She has macular degeneration, along with many other health problems. She said with this light not only can she see to work her crossword puzzles, but is now going to be able to do some hand sewing on a quilt blocks. Quilting was her other hobby which she had given up due to the poor lighting from her previous lamp (NOT A FULL SPECTRUM FLOOR LAMP)!!! Again, we are very thankful to all of you who made our mother's last days/weeks more pleasant, due to this Full Spectrum Floor Lamp. Sincerely, Sarah Hoffman

I have been really impressed by your responses to all my e-mails. Please free to use my name for the following testimonial:

I can’t imagine any company being better to deal with than Full Spectrum Solutions. All inquiries are immediately responded to in a way that provides complete satisfaction to product purchasers.

When my UltraLux II arrived two of the bulbs came broken. I contacted customer service and was immediately notified that replacement bulbs were on their way. THANK YOU for this quick, stress free response. I am thrilled with my UltraLux II, and the customer service I received!

I had to write to  commend you on your excellent service!  I ordered the full-spectrum floor lamp on-line.  Within 2 days the order was waiting for me on my door step!  I couldn't believe it! 

I have used the lamp for about 2 weeks now.  I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the effectiveness of the full-spectrum light.  This has been a particularly long winter here in Massachusetts and it's wonderful to wake up to my "virtual sunlight" at 6:00AM every morning!  It's also a wonderful task light.

I have already recommended your company to everybody that will listen to me!!  Keep up the good work.

Thank you again,

Cynthia

I would like to thank your customer service group.  I placed an order for a replacement bulb for my mothers lamp.  I have the replacement bulb that came with the lamp, but alas moved last May and have not found it yet!!! 

She was lost without her light!   I noticed the two year warranty but could not see how to file for warranty replacement,  I just needed the bulb quickly.  I put a note at the bottom of my order.  Two different people called me to be sure of which bulb I needed.  They took it upon themselves to search for the original order and they found it.   They sent a replacement bulb.  I do customer service all day, every day and it is rare to find employees that will go out of their way, especially since all my transactions have taken place over the internet.  I am sorry I do not remember their names, but I am sure all your employees treat customers in the same gracious way.

Hello,

I just received my Full Spectrum lamp amd wanted to take a minute to thank you for such a terrific product.  I am very impressed.  It is not only the most beautiful lamp I have ever owned, but I love the dimming ability it offers.  Plus, I really do feel a greater sense of well being from having that light on.  It is simply amazing.  The lamp is an incredible bargain at this price.  Thank you so much.

One last thing I wanted to mention.  You can NOT consider my experience a "placebo" effect either.  I have ordered other lights in the past that claim to offer the same light as "day", but they always disappointed.  When I put on your lamp, I wasn't even thinking about any health benefits at all.  Just that I needed light in my office.  So I was quite surprised when I actually started feeling a bit happier almost immediately.  It has been raining almost non-stop in the NY/NJ area for 5 consecutive days, so the lamp definitely brightened my day, if you'll forgive the pun.Obviously, I am a believer since I ordered another lamp for another room in my house.  Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend.

Sincerely,

S.B

Just wanted to let you know how much I like my new 70 watt BlueMax Desk Lamp. I use it for both light therapy while I'm on the computer and for my watch repair business. I really appreciate its adjustability. I use it at full brightness for therapy, but dim it a little to get the light right when I'm wearing magnifying glasses when working on tiny watch parts. I can always set the right amount of light so there's no glare. It also casts a very nice even light for the macro photography I use to document watch repairs. The heft and overall quality of the lamp is very nice also. Delivery was very fast and your shipping charge was very reasonable for such a big package. Thanks for a great product and excellent service.

Hi Liz,

You may recall that I ordered a torchiere which was delivered with a broken bulb. I called you and you said that you would take care of it.

Three days later I received the replacment. Everything works and I love the lamp. Thanks for you help. this has been a very good experience.

Hi Lauren,

I hope you too, have a Merry Christmas and many blessings throughout the new

year. Thank you for the offer of an additional year warrenty on my recent purchase of the BlueMax therapy floor lamp. I also purchased lights for my lamps and a wake-up light control for my bedroom lamp.

I love my new light and can see better and have an atmosphere of true color lighting. I have not yet received my dawn simulated timer but am looking forward to receiving it. I've had my therapy lamp for a week now and am enjoying it.

I also wish to thank you for everyone who has helped me with my many questions. Your company needs to be congratulated for its excellent customer service. JOY TO ALL

Sincerely,

When I e-mailed you I was jerked around by 3 companies that day so I was a little upset. This was only my second purchase on the Internet,that I don't trust all that much anyway, Your response shocked me, I expected to be "blown off" like the other companies did. I wanted to let you know I was impressed and I think you went "above and beyond" what seems to be the norm in America today.Thank you very much,you made my mother's Christmas a happy one. I would HIGHLY recommend  your company anytime. P.S. I WILL buy from you again.       

THANKS again! 

Darryl, Billings Montana

I talked with a woman named Ty today and ordered the bulbs.  I certainly want to thank you for your personalized advice regarding what to order.  As I think I mentioned before, I emailed two other companies.  Only one other responded to say they did not sell the bulbs, but the third never responded.  I am buying from you and recommending a friend to be in touch with you because of your personalized response.
 
Thanks.

Hello, I wanted to leave some feedback on your full spectrum compact fluorescents and tubes, but wasn't sure where to do that. I hope this is ok! My email to you last March made its way into your guest book, and I wanted to update you on how amazed and happy I have been with your product since then! The bulbs I started running 10 hours a day last December are still going strong, and I have not had a single problem with any of them. Thank you for making such a wonderful, fantastic product! I have recommended you as a great source for full spectrum bulbs on my website. Best regards from one very satisfied customer,

I have the Full Spectrum Solutions BlueMax lamps in my overhead fixtures as well as the lamp over my personal workspace.  I personally, although this is not scientific evidence, feel great around them and really like the work light.  Likewise, I have installed them in my home office and my wife and I are thrilled with the trueness of the color of everything in the room.  Using the lights, I much less often go out with clothing that doesn’t match.

In my office, I have had several of our employees request the lamps in their offices and have put them in about a half dozen offices here. Interestingly enough, we are only using about half as many bulbs per office as we were using and the light is much truer and much brighter.

We installed the 12 full spectrum six light high bay lamps in my wife's new studio -- they're fantastic (all in working order) and everyone from the electrician to the architect has been marveling at the excellent lighting and have asked from whom I ordered the lighting. We're also preparing an article on the studio for some weaving publications.. so perhaps we'll generate some additional orders.

Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Nevins,

I want to thank you for the help I have gotten from your lamp. It is wonderful. A gift from God and you to me. I have had extreme SAD for years. Trying to raise a family of six young children with my husband, a very kind, good man, but none of us knew what was the problem.

Later an interim period of wellness with lithium and for the past 14 years, returned and extreme again. I am 86. I found your lamp 1 season ago, Mr. Nevins, and it has been a God send to me and has enabled me to live in St. Louis in comfort. My children are susceptible to SAD too and use your lamp with its help and are grateful.

Sad is an insidious thing. It is terrible. I cannot thank you enough for giving me my life back. That is what you truly did. The last several years it began in August. You are a true hero to me and I know to so many other people too. I admire your abilities and thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerly,

Patricia Hippe

I love my light box. It sits next to my computer, and every morning while I get my e-mail it shines into my eyes. The brightness truly brightens my day. It works better than a cup of coffee to energize me.

On those really grey Michigan days, I even put it on in the afternoon or evening for a short time to help me stay alert. It also serves as a wonderful light for our study. With the dimmer switch I can use it to illuminate documents and help my work at the computer.

Dear Full Spectrum Solutions,

My light therapy box arrived last Wednesday. I started using it right away.
The feeling after using it the first time was one of renewed energy and
well being. I thought it might be the placebo effect so I waited to see how
the second day went. It went great! I have been using it for the 30 minutes
suggested, on a daily basis, and I have to write you a note of thanks.
We are having a gray and dreary winter here in Washington, but when I
sit in front of the light box it is like taking a break from the gray days
and being in the sun for 30 minutes. Even after I use it the positive
effects stay with me throughout the day. I find that I am sleeping better
at night and feeling more rested than I have felt in months when I wake up.
Thank you for a great product and I am looking forward to using it
for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Dana F.

Thank You for saving my life. For the last 5 to 6 years I have developed a state of depression starting around the month of October that has been worsening with each year. The first indication it is about to begin is a sudden craving and binging on carbohydrates (i.e. consuming a large bag of potato chips in one sitting). Then slowing sinking into a deeper and deeper dark depression, the worst of it in Feb and March. I realized I had SAD when one winter I visited Australia in early March. I felt alive. Literally like someone had flipped on a light switch. I no longer felt depressed and had boundless energy. Then returning home after 10 days of late summer down under, I sunk again into my gloom. Now I knew the cause of my depression. Then I searched about for a cure. My doctor was of little help. He was skeptical to say the least about my being affected by the change in seasons. So to appease me, he gladly prescribed a goodly dose of anti-depression drugs. I tried at least 3 different kinds, only to have my gloom manageable but not lifted. So I finally got the money together to purchase your kit which was all I could afford. What a difference a day makes. Just after one session, I felt my internal light switch turn on. Then that feeling you get around spring time when you know winter is over and life renews itself. That first night I slept deeply and restfully for the first time in months. Since I work with my computer at home the light fixture sits right behind it. When the computer goes on so does the light. My only concern is I want to do more than 30 to 45 minutes. When I go beyond that time I get a little to revved up. And all this in just a few days. Amazing. Thank you, thank you and thank you, a thousand blessings. And Thank You Liz, for correcting the error the shipper caused and getting my order to me so quickly. You are an invaluable asset to your company. What a difference a bright sunny (your lights) day makes.

Sincerely,

SSP, here in San Francisco

Hi! 

I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with my UltraLux 1. It has made such a difference in my life. It has been the final piece of returning to a 'normal' life. I am Bi-Polar which I take medication for. The medication just wasn't quite enough yet I couldn't find any to add that I could tolerate - too many side effects! As a last resort my Psychiatrist and Therapist both suggested I try light therapy. When I saw my Psychiatrist after using my light for about 2 months, he couldn't believe the difference. He had never before seen the sparkle in my eyes, a smile on my face, a bounce in my step! What a difference! I'm continuing to use it daily as my apartment is dark and I seem to get a better start on the day.

Just to let you know that there is a very satisfied customer over here. How I wish that I had the light therapy box years ago. Come every September, since I was a child, this unexplainable black shadow would descend upon me and make the holiday months unbearable. What a difference this has made in my life! I hosted Christmas Eve and have numerous get togethers at MY house this year - something I could never have had the desire or energy to do. My appetite for chocolate and such has diminished and my energy level is high. I even joined a gym, and have been keeping up with it every day. I'm up at 4:30 every day, sit and read my newspaper for 30 min under the light and am ready to start my day. Before this, I was finding it almost impossible to get any task done - even getting dressed. This is not a placebo effect and of that I am very sure. I felt such a sense of well being and refrained from using it for about four days. I went back to square one. I know now that I can not skip it for that length of time any more. From now on it will go on starting August 28th.

Thanks, D.R.

The UltraLux II is the greatest! My wife and I had noticed that I was generally more sluggish in the winter than in the summer, but didn't really pay much attention. I just sort of pushed on through. This year was particularly bad since I was under a lot of work stress. I accomplished next to nothing in the month of January. When I perked up after a quick trip to Southern California, my wife bought the UltraLux II. What a difference! I am now my perky, upbeat summer self even in the midst of one of the dreariest winters in Ohio history. I wish I had gotten one years ago. I might be wealthy by now.

This lamp is an excellent investment. Not only do you get the benefit of light therapy, with the dimmer switch you are able to use it as task lighting as well. The unit is very portable (lightweight) and does not become excessively hot (much less hot than halogen).


12/29/04

My husband gave me the Ultralux II for a Christmas gift this year and I had to write to tell you what a huge difference it is making in my life and my business. I have mild SAD and I can't tell you the difference this lamp has made not only in my energy level, but in my productivity as a self-employed professional. It's like having the sun in my home office! I will never be without one of these lamps again.

Thank you! Alicia

Words cannot express my appreciation for the benefits I've received from your products. I purchased the Ultralux 55w floor lamp and the Ultralux II light box.

I've been Bipolar I for at least 15 years, consistently with mania in the summer and deep depression in the winter regardless of the drug/therapy combinations. This is the first year in fifteen that my deep winter depression has not materialized. I began using your products in early Nov. every day. Thanks for giving me back a life in the winter.

Also, as an extra benefit, the floor lamp has allowed me to read much better and for a longer period of time. I can read books again and even things with small print.

Thanks for offering a GREAT line of functional, well-designed, reasonably priced products.

They have greatly enriched my life, allowing me to cope with my mental illness much better.

Sincerely,

 John

Please accept my thanks for your prompt dispatch of both my recent orders.
Each arrived within 3-4 days fully intact. I am delighted with your range
of products and prices and won't be bothering to look anywhere else for
future needs.

The BlueMax standing lamp, vanity globes and dawn simulator have turned my
life around. I'm an Australian, used to intense sunlight all year round,
and didn't realise I had a problem until my husband and I shifted to
Washington, DC. We live in an inner city townhouse condo, where we own the
ground floor and basement. My husband loves it because he finally got the
mood lighting he wanted. I was constantly straining my eyes and feeling
frustrated with having to turn lights on for most of the day. The best
light in the house was in the laundry room with its two fluoros. Within 5
days of arrival I was awake half the night sobbing my eyes out. I work long
hours writing at my desk. During the week the BlueMax lamp gives me plenty
of exposure, but I was feeling emotionally flat and somewhat depressed by
the end of weekends. Since we replaced the bathroom lighting, I now get
enough exposure on weekends to keep me going from Friday to Monday. Now
we're working on the lack of sunlight in our basement bedroom with the Dawn
simulator, which we hope will be the final piece we need for a full return
to a normal life. In Australia I used to work long hours indoors, with only
the occasional walk outside, without any ill effects. I now appreciate how
fortunate we are with the quality of our daylight down under and wonder how
people in the northern hemisphere survive without full spectrum lighting.

A delighted customer,

Wendy

I have been extremely pleased with the products I've purchased from you in the past - another torchiere, a light box, and a portable desk lamp. The torchiere and light box are at our home in Utah, I've brought the desk lamp up here to Alaska. With the increasingly shorter daylight each day, I am looking forward to the wonderful light of another torchiere. I've also been telling many of my friends up here about your products and look forward to showing off our new lamp this fall and winter!

Just wanted to let you know how much I like my new 70 watt BlueMax Desk Lamp. I use it for both light therapy while I'm on the computer and for my watch repair business. I really appreciate its adjustability. I use it at full brightness for therapy, but dim it a little to get the light right when I'm wearing magnifying glasses when working on tiny watch parts. I can always set the right amount of light so there's no glare. It also casts a very nice even light for the macro photography I use to document watch repairs. The heft and overall quality of the lamp is very nice also. Delivery was very fast and your shipping charge was very reasonable for such a big package. Thanks for a great product and excellent service.

Dear Liz,

I wanted to share my success story with you.

I had purchased my Blue Max destop lamp about a month ago.

I'm 42 yrs. old and have lived most of my life with chronic depression. I had been also diagnosed with SAD and consequently all my numerous suicide attempts throughout the years, have all been carried out in the winter months.

Years of physchotherapy and medication had alleviated it, but I was so tired of taking pills and so I sought for a better treatment.

I was heading down that depression spiral again in October and I felt that insurmountable fatigue as autumn set in. I had no energy. I couldn't even get out of bed and only did so to take my kids back and forth to school. My circadian rythms were so bad...It was nothing for me to stay up until 3 or 4 am and sleep all day, but never feeling rested. I felt so much guilt as my life was being wasted. The housework was piling up, dinners not being made, I wasn't even taking care of my own personal habits. I would just look in the mirror and cry.... I felt that I was a prisoner of my own making and my bed was my jail cell.

I was skeptical at the thought of light therapy, I thought how can a simple but special light bulb help me with this debilitating disease??

When I got so bad that I couldn't even get the energy to get out of the house to attend my kid's school plays, I decided that was IT and I was going to do something about it so I decided to give your Blue Max light a try. I rationalized to myself that if this didn't work, well, at least I would still have a desktop light, albeit, quite expensive one....Boy, was I in for a true AWAKENING!!

Within a few days of using the lamp, I began to feel a little bit better. I actually felt sleepy when it was time for me to be and went to bed at a normal time and for the first time in years...no, for the first time ever in my life, I actually woke up REFRESHED and ready to start my day! I have never felt so much energy and motivation. I have traded in my old life for a new and better one

For many years I have suffered, this truly is a miracle for me and my only regret was that I hadn't bought this lamp sooner.

I am happy to say that I will no longer dread the long winters of Ohio. My depression due to SAD is completely gone as well as the suicidal tendencies!!! My pshychologist is  impressed as well and fascinated at the awesome changes he is seeing in me!

 Liz, please let Michael Nevins, the CEO of Full Spectrum Solutions, know that he is truly my angel. God bless him and his wife Diane for not only saving my life, by their wonderful product, but actually making it better!

 Liz, if you see fit to include this mail as one of your testimonials, I would be honored. I have also spread the word to my family and friends who suffer from SAD that they DON'T have to live this way and if I can be helped with your Blue Max lighting products, then anyone can!

Thank you,

Laurie

Hi Lauren,

I hope you too, have a Merry Christmas and many blessings throughout the new

year. Thank you for the offer of an additional year warrenty on my recent purchase of the BlueMax therapy floor lamp. I also purchased lights for my lamps and a wake-up light control for my bedroom lamp.

I love my new light and can see better and have an atmosphere of true color lighting. I have not yet received my dawn simulated timer but am looking forward to receiving it. I've had my therapy lamp for a week now and am enjoying it.

I also wish to thank you for everyone who has helped me with my many questions. Your company needs to be congratulated for its excellent customer service. JOY TO ALL

Sincerely,
Stella, Boise, ID

Great product.

Thank you,

Macular Degeneration

11/14/04

You are so welcome. WE are the ones who have had our DAY MADE ...really our YEAR. I was going to say too that when I was at the Mayo Clinic last week........we asked them at their store which one was the best (they had a light box) and they said oh yes ONLY get the 55w and whatever the lux or lumens etc were. So that alone told me it was THE BEST. We did check out the Ott and the Verilux® and all the many we saw, but your comparison chart and testimonials and the Mayo Clinic....... is I guess what sold us. Now we are sooooo very glad we did buy from you. We know it doesn't CURE macular degeneration but does it help OH MY! Well I could sing your praises for ever. It was so much more than we had hoped for.

Thanks again Ann


12/17/03

My 86 year old mother is in one of the last stages of macular degeneration. I saw your ad in a magazine then went to the website to check out your task floor lamps. 3 of my brothers and wives and I went together to get her the 55w floor lamp as part of her Christmas gift. I was amazed at the speed of delivery and when I took it up to mom's we all just hoped she could get a tiny bit of help. She just called me a bit ago on "cloud nine" acting like she had experienced a miracle. She had done a full crossword puzzle and was reading the very first book in years. Thank you so very VERY much for inventing something I only wish we had found earlier. It is to us.... really "a miracle" and we could not be any happier.

Dear FSS,

On behalf of our mother, our family would like to express our sincere thanks for the speedy delivery of the 55W Full Spectrum Floor lamp which we ordered for our mother. We are all extremely pleased and amazed with the prompt delivery of this wonderful lamp. Our mother is so very, very happy with the light produced by this lamp. She has macular degeneration, along with many other health problems. She said with this light not only can she see to work her crossword puzzles, but is now going to be able to do some hand sewing on a quilt blocks. Quilting was her other hobby which she had given up due to the poor lighting from her previous lamp ( NOT A FULL SPECTRUM FLOOR LAMP)!!! Again, we are very thankful to all of you who made our mother's last days/weeks more pleasant, due to this Full Spectrum Floor Lamp.

Sincerely,

Sarah Hoffman

Thank you very much for the great service. With this lamp my 85 year old mom is able to read even normal print books instead of the few which are printed with large type.

Plant/Animal Testimonials

2/24/03

Our new UltraLux dimmable full spectrum flourescent floor lamp is marvelous! I know this sounds like a promotional testimony, but I wanted to share how great this lamp is! We ordered the task lamp/flexible neck style because we already have a very beautiful dimmable flourescent Torch style floor lamp that we love. We have hopes of someday finding full spectrum replacement bulbs for that lamp also. Your technology is improving rapidly. This new UltraLux lamp is PERFECT for us! It has/does everything we wanted in full spectrum lighting. The adjustable range - from totally dim to full brightness - is excellent. It emits an extremely bright 55 watts on high, (Equivalent to a 300 watt Halogen) down to about 5 watts when fully dimmed. The flexible neck makes it completely versatile! You can sit right under it and use it as a therapy lamp or spread the light all around the entire room, just by bending the flex neck. It's also a great reading light! We share our small living/dining room with five Canary birds. They enjoy the light throughout the day. It's the perfect height to solve our bird problem of "the low bird in the stacking cage stand" who was not getting enough light from our ceiling fixture, and it works great plugged into a digital timer! It's programmed to turn on just before sunset and off again later for the birds "dusk" in the evening. I'm certain our flock will be as grateful as we are. We live in the Pacific Northwest where we have many dark, deary winter days year round. Now we have the Sunshine, without the UV! Thanks for making these great products and for making them affordable!

10/24/05

I received the lamp and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.  I knew your natural lighttheory was the real deal because when I turned it on for the first time, mydogs positioned themselves right underneath it!!!  Sometimes I tilt thelamp vertically and it lights up the whole living room, and even brings outthe colors on the TV.  I finally have a comfortable place to read thenewspaer and the print jumps off the page. All other lighting in my housenow looks dingy by comparison.The dvd was very informative, also.  I'm glad I spent the extra money forthe Blue Max.

Thank You

Some manufacturers of light tubes charge high prices because they advertise that their product emit 5-10% UVB or UVA.  But it turns out that UV is not truly required if you use the proper vitamin supplements and proper diet for pets.  However, a broad spectrum light is better because it best represents the sun which helps indoor animals adapt better.  In short, you tubes are great and sell for less than half the price of people who are marketing tubes to bird people.  I do not need any right now, but I will be buying my tubes from you guys from now on.  I will pass the word along to other people who raise birds that they should buy your products rather than overly expensive alternatives.  Thank you so much for making these products affordable.  As my aviary expands, I will be your customer.

I had to write to commend you on your excellent service!  I ordered the full-spectrum floor lamp on-line.  Within 2 days the order was waiting for me on my door step!  I couldn't believe it! 

I have used the lamp for about 2 weeks now.  I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the effectiveness of the full-spectrum light.  This has been a particularly long winter here in Massachusetts and it's wonderful to wake up to my "virtual sunlight" at 6:00AM every morning!  It's also a wonderful task light.

I have already recommended your company to everybody that will listen to me!!  Keep up the good work.

Thank you again,

Cynthia

Dear FSS,

Your UltraLux lamp is wonderful! As a tutor I spend too much time within the house. My eyes had grown "dim" tired and sensitive to light. I longed for sunlight but needed to wear tints, even at home. The first day I couldn't get enough of the lamp. My eyes felt better immediately! I like these products so much I have purchased three light boxes and have them located on each level of our home.

Thanks V. Udrys


11/5/99

This is a big thank-you to Patrick Lin (and to Adam, whose last name I don't know) for the full-spectrum lights that arrived just the other day. Everyone is amazed at the difference they make. Even people just walking past my office notice and comment. The only drawback so far is that I never realized how dusty my desk was until I saw it properly illuminated!

Hi Tina,

I want to tell you how very pleased I am with the professional service at Full Spectrum Solutions. I received my Paralite Torchiere today, much quicker than I expected. The torchiere was carefully (nicely cushioned) and neatly packaged.. I was thrilled to find the power cord already assembled and thoughtfully knotted through the poles. Each step of the torchiere's assembly was easy to follow. Now, I'm enjoying the light and the energy savings from the torchiere. I also want to tell you that I have spent a great deal of time researching full spectrum lighting on the internet. I'm a student going to two graduate schools and finding a light that would ease my reading was crucial. After searching through many web sites, I found Full Spectrum Solution's website to be the most informative and reasonable (i.e. merchandise pricing, free shipping) site on full spectrum lighting. I especially appreciated your comparision chart of of other lighting systems including Ultralux. I truly enjoyed doing business with your company. Thanks for making this process so simple!

This is an excellent lamp! I know it seems a little pricey, but at long last I have enough light in my living room. It has a nice quality light and it does not get very hot. The dimmer feature is very handy, since it could wind up being too bright for some people. (I already owned two of the 27 watt Ott lamps. They also have a nice light spectrum, but they are dim even though several of the brands state they are equal to 150 watts. I think they are more like 60 watt bulbs.) The instructions for assembly were about the worst I had seen in a long time. That is a shame too, because it is easy to put together once you toss out the instructions. It seems to be well made. Since the lamp looks like a creature from under the sea or outer space, it should fit in any decor.

Words cannot express my appreciation for the benefits I've received from your products. I purchased the Ultralux 55w floor lamp and the Ultralux II light box.

I've been Bipolar I for at least 15 years, consistently with mania in the summer and deep depression in the winter regardless of the drug/therapy combinations. This is the first year in fifteen that my deep winter depression has not materialized. I began using your products in early Nov. every day. Thanks for giving me back a life in the winter.

Also, as an extra benefit, the floor lamp has allowed me to read much better and for a longer period of time. I can read books again and even things with small print.

Thanks for offering a GREAT line of functional, well-designed, reasonably priced products.

They have greatly enriched my life, allowing me to cope with my mental illness much better.

Sincerely,

 John

I received my first shipment today and just tried my first full spectrum bulb in my desk lamp and grabbed a book to see if reading would be any easier. I saw and felt an immediate difference. For the first time in months I can read without squinting!!! I can even read the fine print on the back of my credit cards and the label on my multi vitamin bottle. Before tonight I thought I was loosing my eyesight (even though my doctor said I was 20/20 or better I could not read many things without a magnifier) but now I know it was just the poor lighting in my home and at work.

Thank you! I will surely be ordering more and will seriously consider buying some for gifts next Christmas. I'm going to tell everyone I know about your great product.

Yours truly,

Michele

Hello,

I just received my Full Spectrum lamp amd wanted to take a minute to thank you for such a terrific product.  I am very impressed.  It is not only the most beautiful lamp I have ever owned, but I love the dimming ability it offers.  Plus, I really do feel a greater sense of well being from having that light on.  It is simply amazing.  The lamp is an incredible bargain at this price.  Thank you so much.

One last thing I wanted to mention.  You can NOT consider my experience a "placebo" effect either.  I have ordered other lights in the past that claim to offer the same light as "day", but they always disappointed.  When I put on your lamp, I wasn't even thinking about any health benefits at all.  Just that I needed light in my office.  So I was quite surprised when I actually started feeling a bit happier almost immediately.  It has been raining almost non-stop in the NY/NJ area for 5 consecutive days, so the lamp definitely brightened my day, if you'll forgive the pun.Obviously, I am a believer since I ordered another lamp for another room in my house.  Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend.

Sincerely,

S.B

It was a pleasure to talk with you this morning. Once again, I wanted to share with you how much I appreciate having your Ultra-Lux lamp. I used it quite a bit while writing my doctoral dissertation in clinical psychology last winter and spring. I am very sensitive to sunlight, or the lack of it. I had to spend many hours indoors at my desk over a period of several months, day and night. I feel sure that the lamp helped in a unique and significant way in providing a needed, natural support for my spirits and for my ability to work effectively. The topic of the dissertation was a research study into ways that people can access their own natural spiritual resources. The effect of the lamp seemed very much in keeping with the whole project, so much so that I mentioned it in the Acknowledgements section of the dissertation:

To Full Spectrum Solutions, inc., who made the sunlight lamp that turned night into day, and to the Source of company, lamp, night and day.

Sincerely,

Dear Friends at Full Spectrum Solutions:

We've been using full spectrum lighting in our office for three years. Prior to installing them, people in our office would get "buggy" at around 3 pm every day. They were antsy to go home and slow to work by this time of the day. The afternoon seemed to drag and no one had much energy. We tried the full spectrum lighting hoping it would alleviate this. It did. People now work the full day without any problems. Work gets done till the final minute before they go home. No one seems unmotivated by the day's end, and if asked to stay a little later, no one gripes. The atmosphere in the office is more calm and relaxing, and more work gets accomplished than ever before. Thank you for introducing these lights to us.

I have the Full Spectrum Solutions BlueMax lamps in my overhead fixtures as well as the lamp over my personal workspace.  I personally, although this is not scientific evidence, feel great around them and really like the work light.  Likewise, I have installed them in my home office and my wife and I are thrilled with the trueness of the color of everything in the room.  Using the lights, I much less often go out with clothing that doesn’t match.

In my office, I have had several of our employees request the lamps in their offices and have put them in about a half dozen offices here. Interestingly enough, we are only using about half as many bulbs per office as we were using and the light is much truer and much brighter.

Hi Lauren,

I am as happy as a heifer in red clover with my new lamp. I have a stack of Newsweeks and US News and World Reports etc. going back 3 months that I just dont have time to read during the day. Your product is SO perfect for my 55 year old eyeballs! i had forgotten how much fun it is to read myself to sleep at night. I am glad I at leastt had time for Reader's Digest or I would never have seen your ad.

A very satisfied customer,

I also wish to thank you for everyone who has helped me with my many questions. Your company needs to be congratulated for its excellent customer service. JOY TO ALL

SAD/Depression

3/14/99

I love my light box. It sits next to my computer, and every morning while I get my e-mail it shines into my eyes. The brightness truly brightens my day. It works better than a cup of coffee to energize me.

On those really grey Michigan days, I even put it on in the afternoon or evening for a short time to help me stay alert. It also serves as a wonderful light for our study. With the dimmer switch I can use it to illuminate documents and help my work at the computer.

Just to let you know that there is a very satisfied customer over here. How I wish that I had the light therapy box years ago. Come every September, since I was a child, this unexplainable black shadow would descend upon me and make the holiday months unbearable. What a difference this has made in my life! I hosted Christmas Eve and have numerous get togethers at MY house this year - something I could never have had the desire or energy to do. My appetite for chocolate and such has diminished and my energy level is high. I even joined a gym, and have been keeping up with it every day. I'm up at 4:30 every day, sit and read my newspaper for 30 min under the light and am ready to start my day. Before this, I was finding it almost impossible to get any task done - even getting dressed. This is not a placebo effect and of that I am very sure. I felt such a sense of well being and refrained from using it for about four days. I went back to square one. I know now that I can not skip it for that length of time any more. From now on it will go on starting August 28th.

Thanks, D.R.

Thank You for saving my life. For the last 5 to 6 years I have developed a state of depression starting around the month of October that has been worsening with each year. The first indication it is about to begin is a sudden craving and binging on carbohydrates (i.e. consuming a large bag of potato chips in one sitting). Then slowing sinking into a deeper and deeper dark depression, the worst of it in Feb and March. I realized I had SAD when one winter I visited Australia in early March. I felt alive. Literally like someone had flipped on a light switch. I no longer felt depressed and had boundless energy. Then returning home after 10 days of late summer down under, I sunk again into my gloom. Now I knew the cause of my depression. Then I searched about for a cure. My doctor was of little help. He was skeptical to say the least about my being affected by the change in seasons. So to appease me, he gladly prescribed a goodly dose of anti-depression drugs. I tried at least 3 different kinds, only to have my gloom manageable but not lifted. So I finally got the money together to purchase your kit which was all I could afford. What a difference a day makes. Just after one session, I felt my internal light switch turn on. Then that feeling you get around spring time when you know winter is over and life renews itself. That first night I slept deeply and restfully for the first time in months. Since I work with my computer at home the light fixture sits right behind it. When the computer goes on so does the light. My only concern is I want to do more than 30 to 45 minutes. When I go beyond that time I get a little to revved up. And all this in just a few days. Amazing. Thank you, thank you and thank you, a thousand blessings. And Thank You Liz, for correcting the error the shipper caused and getting my order to me so quickly. You are an invaluable asset to your company. What a difference a bright sunny (your lights) day makes.

Sincerely,

SSP, here in San Francisco

My husband gave me the Ultralux II for a Christmas gift this year and I had to write to tell you what a huge difference it is making in my life and my business. I have mild SAD and I can't tell you the difference this lamp has made not only in my energy level, but in my productivity as a self-employed professional. It's like having the sun in my home office! I will never be without one of these lamps again.

Thank you! Alicia

Please accept my thanks for your prompt dispatch of both my recent orders.
Each arrived within 3-4 days fully intact. I am delighted with your range
of products and prices and won't be bothering to look anywhere else for
future needs.

The BlueMax standing lamp, vanity globes and dawn simulator have turned my
life around. I'm an Australian, used to intense sunlight all year round,
and didn't realise I had a problem until my husband and I shifted to
Washington, DC. We live in an inner city townhouse condo, where we own the
ground floor and basement. My husband loves it because he finally got the
mood lighting he wanted. I was constantly straining my eyes and feeling
frustrated with having to turn lights on for most of the day. The best
light in the house was in the laundry room with its two fluoros. Within 5
days of arrival I was awake half the night sobbing my eyes out. I work long
hours writing at my desk. During the week the BlueMax lamp gives me plenty
of exposure, but I was feeling emotionally flat and somewhat depressed by
the end of weekends. Since we replaced the bathroom lighting, I now get
enough exposure on weekends to keep me going from Friday to Monday. Now
we're working on the lack of sunlight in our basement bedroom with the Dawn
simulator, which we hope will be the final piece we need for a full return
to a normal life. In Australia I used to work long hours indoors, with only
the occasional walk outside, without any ill effects. I now appreciate how
fortunate we are with the quality of our daylight down under and wonder how
people in the northern hemisphere survive without full spectrum lighting.

A delighted customer,

Dear Liz,

I wanted to share my success story with you.

I had purchased my Blue Max destop lamp about a month ago.

I'm 42 yrs. old and have lived most of my life with chronic depression. I had been also diagnosed with SAD and consequently all my numerous suicide attempts throughout the years, have all been carried out in the winter months.

Years of physchotherapy and medication had alleviated it, but I was so tired of taking pills and so I sought for a better treatment.

I was heading down that depression spiral again in October and I felt that insurmountable fatigue as autumn set in. I had no energy. I couldn't even get out of bed and only did so to take my kids back and forth to school. My circadian rythms were so bad...It was nothing for me to stay up until 3 or 4 am and sleep all day, but never feeling rested. I felt so much guilt as my life was being wasted. The housework was piling up, dinners not being made, I wasn't even taking care of my own personal habits. I would just look in the mirror and cry.... I felt that I was a prisoner of my own making and my bed was my jail cell.

I was skeptical at the thought of light therapy, I thought how can a simple but special light bulb help me with this debilitating disease??

When I got so bad that I couldn't even get the energy to get out of the house to attend my kid's school plays, I decided that was IT and I was going to do something about it so I decided to give your Blue Max light a try. I rationalized to myself that if this didn't work, well, at least I would still have a desktop light, albeit, quite expensive one....Boy, was I in for a true AWAKENING!!

Within a few days of using the lamp, I began to feel a little bit better. I actually felt sleepy when it was time for me to be and went to bed at a normal time and for the first time in years...no, for the first time ever in my life, I actually woke up REFRESHED and ready to start my day! I have never felt so much energy and motivation. I have traded in my old life for a new and better one

For many years I have suffered, this truly is a miracle for me and my only regret was that I hadn't bought this lamp sooner.

I am happy to say that I will no longer dread the long winters of Ohio. My depression due to SAD is completely gone as well as the suicidal tendencies!!! My pshychologist is  impressed as well and fascinated at the awesome changes he is seeing in me!

Liz, please let Michael Nevins, the CEO of Full Spectrum Solutions, know that he is truly my angel. God bless him and his wife Diane for not only saving my life, by their wonderful product, but actually making it better!

Liz, if you see fit to include this mail as one of your testimonials, I would be honored. I have also spread the word to my family and friends who suffer from SAD that they DON'T have to live this way and if I can be helped with your Blue Max lighting products, then anyone can!

Thank you,

When I was the Senior Army Instructor at Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore, Maryland, I installed the full spectrum lights recommended by Dr. Martel and indorsed by US Army Cadet Command. In the JROTC program, I had a number of Attention Deficit cadets who were always moving around theroom and not concentrating on their assignments. I was amazed that from the first day I turned on the full spectrum lights, these cadets stayed in their seats and on task. As far as improving learning among the other cadets, I have no statistical proof, but I truly believed these lights provided a more conducive environment for learning and thus could only have had a positive effect on learning.

Dear FSS,

Your UltraLux lamp is wonderful! As a tutor I spend too much time within thehouse. My eyes had grown "dim" tired and sensitive to light. I longed for sunlight but needed to wear tints, even at home. The first day I couldn't get enough of the lamp. My eyes felt better immediately! I like these products so much I have purchased three light boxes and have them located on each level of our home.

Thanks V. Udrys

It was a pleasure to talk with you this morning. Once again, I wanted to share with you how much I appreciate having your Ultra-Lux lamp. I used it quite a bit while writing my doctoral dissertation in clinical psychology last winter and spring. I am very sensitive to sunlight, or the lack of it. I had to spend many hours indoors at my desk over a period of several months, day and night. I feel sure that the lamp helped in a unique and significant way in providing a needed, natural support for my spirits and for my ability to work effectively. The topic of the dissertation was a research study into ways that people can access their own natural spiritual resources. The effect of the lamp seemed very much in keeping with the whole project, so much so that I mentioned it in the Acknowledgements section of the dissertation:

To Full Spectrum Solutions, inc., who made the sunlight lamp that turned night into day, and to the Source of company, lamp, night and day.

Sincerely,

B.W. R, Ph.D.

In a report from School District Superintendent, Janet Aikele, Arco Elementary School, Butte County School District #111, Arco Idaho added full-spectrum lighting to their buildings. The staff reported that eyestrain, depression, and illnesses were reduced as a result. School attendance rose from 92% to 98%. The teachers also reported that they felt better and more positive as a result of the better lighting. St. Pauls High School in Robeson County, St. Pauls, NC replaced lighting in 1/3 of their classrooms with Full Spectrum Solution fluorescent lights.Steve Gaskins, principal of St. Pauls High School, reported that students at St. Pauls went from 40% passing the required NC State Exams to 70% passing.

Dear Full Spectrum Solutions,

My light therapy box arrived last Wednesday. I started using it right away.
The feeling after using it the first time was one of renewed energy and
well being. I thought it might be the placebo effect so I waited to see how
the second day went. It went great! I have been using it for the 30 minutes
suggested, on a daily basis, and I have to write you a note of thanks.
We are having a gray and dreary winter here in Washington, but when I
sit in front of the light box it is like taking a break from the gray days
and being in the sun for 30 minutes. Even after I use it the positive
effects stay with me throughout the day. I find that I am sleeping better
at night and feeling more rested than I have felt in months when I wake up.
Thank you for a great product and I am looking forward to using it
for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Dana F.

Dear Liz,

I wanted to share my success story with you.

I had purchased my Blue Max destop lamp about a month ago.

I'm 42 yrs. old and have lived most of my life with chronic depression. I had been also diagnosed with SAD and consequently all my numerous suicide attempts throughout the years, have all been carried out in the winter months.

Years of physchotherapy and medication had alleviated it, but I was so tired of taking pills and so I sought for a better treatment.

I was heading down that depression spiral again in October and I felt that insurmountable fatigue as autumn set in. I had no energy. I couldn't even get out of bed and only did so to take my kids back and forth to school. My circadian rythms were so bad...It was nothing for me to stay up until 3 or 4 am and sleep all day, but never feeling rested. I felt so much guilt as my life was being wasted. The housework was piling up, dinners not being made, I wasn't even taking care of my own personal habits. I would just look in the mirror and cry.... I felt that I was a prisoner of my own making and my bed was my jail cell.

I was skeptical at the thought of light therapy, I thought how can a simple but special light bulb help me with this debilitating disease??

When I got so bad that I couldn't even get the energy to get out of the house to attend my kid's school plays, I decided that was IT and I was going to do something about it so I decided to give your Blue Max light a try. I rationalized to myself that if this didn't work, well, at least I would still have a desktop light, albeit, quite expensive one....Boy, was I in for a true AWAKENING!!

Within a few days of using the lamp, I began to feel a little bit better. I actually felt sleepy when it was time for me to be and went to bed at a normal time and for the first time in years...no, for the first time ever in my life, I actually woke up REFRESHED and ready to start my day! I have never felt so much energy and motivation. I have traded in my old life for a new and better one

For many years I have suffered, this truly is a miracle for me and my only regret was that I hadn't bought this lamp sooner.

I am happy to say that I will no longer dread the long winters of Ohio. My depression due to SAD is completely gone as well as the suicidal tendencies!!! My pshychologist is  impressed as well and fascinated at the awesome changes he is seeing in me!

Task Lighting

2/14/09

I am a full-time Sculptor and have always struggled under inadequate lighting. Continually frustrated, I tried many different ways to bring light to my work table. When I stumbled onto Full Spectrum lighting and read what it claimed to do, I decided to try yet one more hopeful solution.

Buying this light has been the wisest investment for sculpting tools I have made. Yes, I consider this light a sculpting tool. Working with this light, I see so many details…even shadows…that without it, I never saw. I never want to sculpt without it.

I have since modified this light to attach directly to my sculpting table using clamps. A few Sculptor friends of mine saw my light and wanted one attached to their table as well! So, since I first purchased my own Full Spectrum light last month, I have since bought two more for my friends! I'm spreading the word! There is no better indoor lighting available and this is an absolute must for any Sculptor. You may see my Full Spectrum light on my website featured on the 'Works in Progress' page as I sculpt my current piece.

Thank you, Full Spectrum, for this high-quality product and equally superior Customer Service!

I had to write to  commend you on your excellent service!  I ordered the full-spectrum floor lamp on-line.  Within 2 days the order was waiting for me on my door step!  I couldn't believe it! 

I have used the lamp for about 2 weeks now.  I am very pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the effectiveness of the full-spectrum light.  This has been a particularly long winter here in Massachusetts and it's wonderful to wake up to my "virtual sunlight" at 6:00AM every morning!  It's also a wonderful task light.

I have already recommended your company to everybody that will listen to me!!  Keep up the good work.

Thank you again,

Cynthia

Mike, Thank you for taking care of this so quickly. I ordered a number of full spectrum products from your company in the past several weeks. I have been very pleased with the quickness that my orders got to me. I ordered full spectrum lights for both my work place and home and can see a huge difference. The full spectrum light is so much whiter (like sunlight) and I can read things that I couldn't under regular lights. I also appreciate how promptly you replaced the task lamp that didn't work for me. Your courtesy, promptness and customer service was wonderful.

Sincerely,

Steven Tope

Dear FSS,

I am delighted to have recently purchased the ULTRALUX FULL SPECTRUM 55w FLOOR LAMP. The light intensity produced by the lamp is remarkable! And I like the dimmer feature which allows me to adjust the light intensity as needed. Additionally, I also love the true "white" light that shines from the lamp unlike the so called "soft white" light bulbs that shine a yellow-tinted light. As a Biology student at UC Berkeley, I found your product to make studying at night most enjoyable. I wholly recommend this product over any other light products. If you are a student, you need to get this product now! I also appreciate the super sonic shipment of the product as it arrived within 2 days of my online order. You have done a great job engineering this incredible product. Keep it up.

I ordered your UltraLux 55W floor lamp, and would like you to know how pleased I am with it. This was after I returned my Verilux® floor lamp for a refund. Your salesperson was very professional and answered all the questions I had. The feature I like on your lamp is the adjustable switch which makes it fully dimmable at any brightness I choose. Not a high/low switch as on the other brand. I also like the larger lamp that increases the lighted area. Your lamp is of size enough to completely light a full newspaper page, not just half a page as the other brand did. My Ultralux came in less shipping days than I was told, and very well packaged, with no damage, and it assembled with the utmost ease. I don't have the eyestrain and watery burning eyes as I had in the past when reading or watching television. I am glad I found your web site, and the chart that compares lamps. That chart was my deciding factor. I can recommend the Ultralux 55W to anyone. To be honest, I was apprehensive making this purchase after my disappointment with the Verilux®, but now I'm happy with my decision. Buying something other than a Ultralux is throwing your money away. You may refer anyone to me that wants to know the quality and value of your lamp.

Hello,

I just received my Full Spectrum lamp amd wanted to take a minute to thank you for such a terrific product.  I am very impressed.  It is not only the most beautiful lamp I have ever owned, but I love the dimming ability it offers.  Plus, I really do feel a greater sense of well being from having that light on.  It is simply amazing.  The lamp is an incredible bargain at this price.  Thank you so much.

One last thing I wanted to mention.  You can NOT consider my experience a "placebo" effect either.  I have ordered other lights in the past that claim to offer the same light as "day", but they always disappointed.  When I put on your lamp, I wasn't even thinking about any health benefits at all.  Just that I needed light in my office.  So I was quite surprised when I actually started feeling a bit happier almost immediately.  It has been raining almost non-stop in the NY/NJ area for 5 consecutive days, so the lamp definitely brightened my day, if you'll forgive the pun. Obviously, I am a believer since I ordered another lamp for another room in my house.  Thanks again and have a wonderful weekend.

Sincerely,

S.B

I have been extremely pleased with the products I've purchased from you in the past - another torchiere, a light box, and a portable desk lamp. The torchiere andlight box are at our home in Utah, I've brought the desk lamp up here to Alaska. With the increasingly shorter daylight each day, I am looking forward to the wonderful light of another torchiere. I've also been telling many of my friends up here about your products and look forward to showing off our new lamp this fall and winter!

I received the lamp and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT.  I knew your natural lighttheory was the real deal because when I turned it on for the first time, my dogs positioned themselves right underneath it!!!  Sometimes I tilt thelamp vertically and it lights up the whole living room, and even brings outthe colors on the TV.  I finally have a comfortable place to read thenewspaer and the print jumps off the page. All other lighting in my housenow looks dingy by comparison.The dvd was very informative, also.  I'm glad I spent the extra money forthe Blue Max.

Thank You

I have the Full Spectrum Solutions BlueMax lamps in my overhead fixtures as well as the lamp over my personal workspace.  I personally, although this is not scientific evidence, feel great around them and really like the work light.  Likewise, I have installed them in my home office and my wife and I are thrilled with the trueness of the color of everything in the room.  Using the lights, I much less often go out with clothing that doesn’t match.

In my office, I have had several of our employees request the lamps in their offices and have put them in about a half dozen offices here. Interestingly enough, we are only using about half as many bulbs per office as we were using and the light is much truer and much brighter.

This lamp is an excellent investment. Not only do you get the benefit of light therapy, with the dimmer switch you are able to use it as task lighting as well. The unit is very portable (lightweight) and does not become excessively hot (much less hot than halogen).

My hobby is jewelery making and no amount of light compares to this.

Hi,

I have had the lamp on 3 days. helped my sight and moods. Please tell the owner I have dyslexia.

Your dimmable Blue Max Floor lamp is great working on the computer. Told my friends in Minneapolis & Wisconsin and gave them your web site.

Great product.

Thank you,

We love your products. We have purchased five of your lamps and all are still in good working order after many years. We just replace the bulbs.
I am upgrading (for my husband) to a new Blue Max 70 watt nickel plated lamp. An eight year old floor lamp will simply go to another room in our home.
Your quality far exceeds any other full spectrum lamps available.

I'm looking forward to receiving the new lighting unit. I've attached a couple of low-resolution images which were shot using ONLY my UltraLux(tm)6-lamp fixture. As you can see, the quality of the light is wonderful - quite different from both sunlight and tungsten 'hot lights'. The light 'wraps' nicely around the models and brings out excellent skin tones. The unit is allowing me to achieve high-quality results at relatively low cost.

Just wanted to let you know how much I like my new 70 watt BlueMax Desk Lamp. I use it for both light therapy while I'm on the computer and for my watch repair business. I really appreciate its adjustability. I use it at full brightness for therapy, but dim it a little to get the light right when I'm wearing magnifying glasses when working on tiny watch parts. I can always set the right amount of light so there's no glare. It also casts a very nice even light for the macro photography I use to document watch repairs. The heft and overall quality of the lamp is very nice also. Delivery was very fast and your shipping charge was very reasonable for such a big package. Thanks for a great product and excellent service.

I just want to say that I have been using the BlueMax™ 70w Black Dimmable Desk Lamp for at least 5 years now and believe it or not, the bulb finally quit working. I was frantic!! I actually have to turn on my ceiling light in my office today to read. See, I’m a CAD Designer and rely on my desk lamp for reading light. It’s hard to do CAD (Computer Aided Drafting) work on a computer monitor with ceiling lights on. They produce too much glare on the screen and the background color of the screen is usually BLACK, not white so I can’t work well with the ceiling lights on. Anyway, I frantically went online to find a replacement bulb for my desk lamp and can hardly wait for it to arrive. I’m hoping it gives me another 5 years of light and happiness – only time will tell. FYI: Even on other sites, replacement bulbs were higher priced so I bought the replacement bulb right from the source. Thanks a million Full Spectrum Solutions!!
