Are LED Panels/Lightboxes intended for "animation" usable for photographic purposes?

LED Panels that are described as intended for animation drawing tend to be a quarter of the price of such panels that are explicitly intended for photography work (macro lighting, slide viewing and copying etc.)

Do these cheaper panels tend to have drawbacks that make them ill suited for photography purposes, eg PWM dimmers that candy stripe on sensors, uneven lighting, or horribly bad CRI in practice? Or would such imperfections also be a problem for who draws animation?

Do "eye safety" features that restrict the extreme blue frequencies mean that you would end up with color problems when copying slides or lighting something, or would they actually help against blue color casts/channel clipping?
