Great Customer Service....
By Love Clothes
This is a follow-up to my previous post. (I was really cranky.. LOL).My unit was replaced within 48 hours and I've been using it every morning. The unit itself must be a 2.0 version as it seems to be much more durable and perhaps slightly "upgraded." Not sure though.I'm very happy with the service I received and very happy that I have a new Yumalite. I must also add that Customer Service was very receptive to the issues that I had with the first unit.That is a sign of a good company. Thanks Yumalite and thanks TSC.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fell apart....... very poor quality.
I used this when I got it and it seemed to work. I took out the batteries, put it back in the drawstring sack and box and put it safely away for the Summer. I wanted to start using it again and so went to put batteries back in and that's when the nightmare started.DESIGNERS - First of all, if you're going to put the positive/negative battery direction on the unit, please make it legible. I put new AAA batteries and no matter what I did, they would not stay in the unit. I finally got the visor to close and it wouldn't work. Tried several times, to no avail. I was going to give up and call the 1-800 # as in the booklet that comes with the unit, but then the strap fell off one side. I went to put the strap back in, and a piece of the plastic fastening section broke off! Now what? I'm going to call the 1-800 # and see what kind of response I receive from Customer Service. Hopefully, it will be a good one.Will post a follow-up to this.Bottom line is this: great idea - very poor quality design and materials (and it's not inexpensive either).

I used the YumaLite first thing in the morning for the required number of days without any results. Disappointing but not for me.TSC shopper from Toronto

I am nicer!
from Niagara Falls ON
I have been curious about light therapy for a long time but knew I would never sit still in front of the panel for 20 minutes every morning. I love the Yuma. I put it on and then read the morning paper.I had an odd reaction at first. For the first 5 or 6 uses, the light so relaxed me that I fell asleep after about 10 minutes.After I woke up again, I had a nice calm energy for the day, not needing a nap.By the way, I have had 8 heart attacks and will do anything to improve my health. Poor health can be very demoralizing. Add winter blues to that and you have a perfect storm for depression. This device has helped to lift my spirits. I feel better.Don't forget that the brim is hinged and can be adjusted to shine into your eyes....not nearly as awful as that sounds. It is quite comfortable.
Not for me
Did not work for me.
Great technology but Needs Adjustments
from VANCOUVER, BC
I needed no convincing about the light therapy, I have successfully used it, so when I saw this application of it, I wanted it right away. However, it needs some drastic redesigning, the headgear is very thigh and borders on causing a headache and I don't have a very big head. I have tried putting foam between the gear and my head, but that doesn't work if I loosen it, it falls off. It also presses so hard, it leaves an impression on my hair, so I can only use it in the AM before I wash and style my hair.. Further the visor part adjustment is so minimal, it really seems redundant. I am almost thinking of returning it.

I got my yumalite a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing it faithfully every morning. It is light and comfortable and I usually wear it for 30 minutes each day. I have sleep apnoea and combined with my C-PAP therapy I do feel more energetic and brighter in mood. I have already recommended it to a friend who suffers with fibromyalgia.
Fantastic Light Therapy
By Diane no longer a SAD person
from Ottawa, ON
I have been putting off buying a light for years because I could not see myself making the time to sit in front of a light for 30 minutes. When I came across this light therapy in the form of a portable visor, I was sold. I purchased it and received it within a couple of days. I have had a remarkable decline in energy over the winter and got significant results within a couple of days. I don't need my afternoon sleep anymore and am actually getting things done around the house. Bye-bye winter blues .. never again!
uncomfortable for me!
I bought this Yamalite only because it is portable, as I have already owned a table energy light therapy which I like.I have found Yamalite very uncomfortable for me to wear it (not more than 5 to 7 minutes). The lights, red or white,really bothered my eyes and I am afraid that I will trip one day, walking around with it on my head... Have not seen much difference after 1 week use! Returned it.
from Burlington, Ontario
I've been battling SAD for most of my life, and although I do take supplements that help, there's no substitute for real sunshine. I've been so put off from buying an LED light for treatment both due to the pricing and that you have to sit idle for a period of time in front of it ('can't do it). I saw this on a recap of Dragon's Den last weekend and felt compelled to purchase one for the portability and the lower price point compared to a stationary model. After shopping around online I found this to be the best deal on TSC, both price wise and for customer satisifaction. It arrived nicely packaged this morning at my office and I quickly unwrapped it just to try it out. And it's simply crazy, I know - just 5 minutes with it on I could feel my mood instantly picking up. I am so looking forward to using this while I get ready for work in the morning!
