      Great starter kit for lighting small indoor jobs. Nice that the SV products come with options for upgrades, if need be. I also purchased an additional full size stand to make it a true four light kit. One downside is that I have to completely disassemble the kit to fit it in the bag...a largr bag/box would be nice.

      Comments about Smith-Victor K84 4-Light 1000 Watt Ultra Cool Portrait Kit (120V AC):

      This is a nice, inexpensive little kit. The problem is with the bulbs that come with it. The two provided blew after less than 15 of turning them on. I looked at other reviews and this is a common complaint I exchanged emails with Smith-Victor's technical sales rep and they are sending replacements and I am going to try some flourescents to see if I can overcome the problem. If it were not for this issue, I would be satisfied.

        Nice light kit that gives you many options on location or in the studio.Light stands are better quality than I expected. Barn doors would have been nice but I guess you can't have everything for this price.

          I think this is a good starter kit for a beginner or enthusiast that doesn't have a large budget. I find it works well for my home studio and is versatile for location shoots. The lights are basic, easy to use and easy to set up. The four light set up provide multiple options for set up and light output is good. The lights are not fancy but work for what I need now. It packs nicely into the travel case which comes in but I wish the case had a more sturdy top instead of just being a zip up flap. I would not want to ship the kit in the case comes in because it is not incredibly sturdy bit it does come in handy for neat storage and location shoots also the telescoping handle is nice too. I can pack some small extras in the case with all the gear, for example I pack a power strip with me for the lights, but if you are going on location plan on bringing another bag for extra gear.

            Comments about Smith-Victor K84 4-Light 1000 Watt Ultra Cool Portrait Kit (120V AC):

            I am just starting out in photography and I didn't want to spend a Tom of money right off the bay with all the accessories needed to go along with taking studio photos. I am a graphic designer and wanted to start taking my own stock photos rather than searching around for the perfect angle or the perfect picture. This lighting kit has been great for that. For the price it is well worth it. It puts out plenty of light and gives you many options for lighting configurations. It might not be the best for the pros. But being that I'm not a pro yet, I can't tell cause it has done exactly what I need it to do and everything fits perfect in the carrying case and then some which is awesome for some video shoots I have been on.

              Comments about Smith-Victor K84 4-Light 1000 Watt Ultra Cool Portrait Kit (120V AC):

              This combination is perfect for the videographer on the go. The four lights and tripod mounts offer flexibility for any environment.

              The travel case is a nice touch. Keep in mind that it fits the included items snugly so there is little room for any additional gear. The case's handle is molded into the side, rather than telescoping.

              Overall this is a nice kit and a value for the price.

              Great kit for the money

              Comments about Smith-Victor K84 4-Light 1000 Watt Ultra Cool Portrait Kit (120V AC):

              I am very pleased with this light kit. I needed somethingcheap that I wouldn't have to worry about breaking orlosing, and this is just right. The fixtures are robust. The light output is impressive, but the lights vent well(not too hot). And everything fits nicely into the providedbox. For the price, this is a great starter kit that givesyou lots of options for lighting arrangements.

              Problems Encountered: The kit as a whole is heavy (40 lbs.). The boom arm createsa lot of instability when fully extended (needs to bebaby-sat if there are people around).

              Items I Recommend: various gels, power strips & extension cords, sandbags or weights (like ankle weights), extra bulbs
