I think I'm prone to Seasonal Affective Disorder, and would like to try a light box this winter to avoid the blues. Which one should I buy?

I'm in London, and would prefer to buy online if possible. There are a few SAD lamps on Amazon, and some of the smaller, cheaper ones like this
have quite good reviews. Can I get away with spending less, or will I regret not plonking down a hundred quid on this?
I do notice that the product description for the smaller lamp doesn't mention how powerful it is. Would I be better off with something like this 10k LUX one
Bonus question: How hard is it to get replacement bulbs for these things?
(I have read all the previous SAD lamp posts, but none of them answered my question.)
Thanks for your help!
