    Comments about Smith-Victor SBL-2432 500 Watt Economy SoftBox Light - 24 x 32" (120V AC):

    It is a strong light source, great for interviews. It takes some time to mount, though, and it is not fully collapsable, as one of the parts will have to be carried separately. It is one the cheapest soft boxes from the store.

      Comments about Smith-Victor SBL-2432 500 Watt Economy SoftBox Light - 24 x 32" (120V AC):

      [...] It comes with a nice sleeve for keeping the soft-box in once it is broke down.(though after assembly I don't really want to try and break it down) The overall quality of the stitching and materials is excellent. I found that this particular size wasn't heavy enough to topple my stand at 6 feet without sand bags, though I'd advise to purchase some if you don't have them. The assembly of the product didn't come without some struggle. The metal bars that are inserted into the corners of the soft-box, are then inserted into the back plate at 90 degrees and getting the last one in proved difficult for me. They recommend to bend the bar before inserting, but the bar doesn't bend easy. It would be easy to do with 2 people, but I was on my own. Don't let this sway your opinion of purchase too much unless you plan to dissemble,& reassemble it OFTEN, & on your own. It took me about 30-40 mins. of struggling with it. But once the box is together, it is very taunt and the diffusion fabric fits nicely. The inner piece loops onto hooks and the outer piece Velcros on. This is a great feature to have if you were planning on transporting it assembled, but afraid of staining the sensitive material. There is Velcro around the back that closes the soft-box around the mount, (and to access socket) and it takes a bit of pulling and tugging to get it together, not too bad though as you want a nice snug box rather then not. Also, I highly recommend the full 500 watt bulb. I popped in a 250 watt that I had and soon realized I needed a 500. The cord off the back is not incredibly long, but was pleased that it was longer then I had expected. The mount of the soft-box fit perfectly onto my previously purchased Smith-Victor light stands. The tilt handle works smoothly and adjusts up and down with ease. The box also rotates on the mount nicely. Overall I'd say the great quality, assembly, versatility, function,[...] make this an excellent product for the cost. Therefore, regardless of any cons, I still recommend highly.
