    Used as a portable flash solution with Bowens to Speedlight adapter. Softens flash well, about 2 stops lost with both diffusers in place, and the hot spot typical of these inexpensive light shapers is not actually bad. My only complaint is that the front diffuser is flush with the front of the box making any directionality difficult. Really this is only slightly more directional than a shoot-through umbrella.
    In terms of quality it is Westcott and thus better quality than generic but not quite as good as their higher end gear.

    This box is cheap, and it is designed to be cheap. It does the basics: bundles light, connects to your strobes, and allows softening. However, the struts bend much more easily, an the characteristic "velcro lip" at the front of other Westcott soft boxes is not there (which would allow you to mold the light a bit better). I have only used this product for a week, so I can't speak to it's longevity. However, I doubt it will last as long as my other Westcott boxes, some of which I've been using for 12 years.

    If you are ok with these shortcomings, it's an ok investment.

        The product is working well, but set-up was a pain. I felt like I was going to end up breaking the metal supports. I had to look up a video on youtube to make sure I was doing it correctly.

          Comments about Westcott 24x24" Soft Box with Bowens S-Type Adapter Ring:

          The softbox seems fine, I haven't really tested it out yet. It's a bit tricky to disassemble and I think it may get damaged in the long run. The one slightly annoying thing that wasn't listed is that the softbox rods are smaller than the usual 9mm rods (approximately 5mm) which means that the speedrings that come with it can't be used for other softboxes - so if you're buying another softbox like I did you won't be able to use this speedring.

            Being completely inexperienced with soft boxes I have to say that it is more flimsy than expected, and the front diffuser makes a huge fold when fully assembled. I guess it works for the purpose, and if you dont have to move it around a lot it might be ok. I had to exchange the adapter ring to fit my strobe.
