    I have had much success using this kit. It's easy to use and set up. My only regret is, I wish I had purchased the set with 2 lamps.

    overall, not bad for the price. the light stand is a pit flimsy and light. but, for what it is, not bad for a beginner's setup.

      Easy to set up, somewhat confusing to put together the first time. Very bright 500 watts, gets a little warm after a while. Makes all the difference on indoor photos and omitting all shadows! Really like it would recommend it.

        I purchased this along with the uLITE 2-LIGHT VIDEO KIT & it made for a great 3 point lighting system to video some interviews. I also used it to do some personal still photography & I'm pleased with it! I put it together easily without the instructions & it folds easily to pack away in the 2-HEAD ROLLER CASE - MEDIUM . Why spend more of your hard earned $ on expensive lighting when this works great?

          This is a nice light for the price and would recommend it. It did come with a 500 watt bulb, but it blew out within minutes of initial use.
