      Comments about Smith-Victor 1000W Heat Resistant Softbox Light - 24 x 32" (120V AC):

      Overall these lights do a good job for the money. We use them for a variety of corporate and commercial productions and they have been well worth the money.

      That said, they are cheap lights. We have owned 5 of them and 3 have had issues with the switch breaking or taking a few tries for it to even activate. I have talked to the people at S&V and they claim that have not heard about this issue, so it's possible we just have bad luck with them.

      Because they can be unreliable I would recommend having at least 1 or 2 as a backup in case your switch breaks.

      All in all we buy a few each year and just plan on them deteriorating. We certainly get our money's worth out of them in that time.

      Comments about Smith-Victor 1000W Heat Resistant Softbox Light - 24 x 32" (120V AC):

      Overall i think it is a great product for the price and has worked out very well. However, the first time you set it up you better be prepared to spend about 45 minutes figuring out how it all goes together. It looks simple, but too a while to figure it out. The instructions are not very helpful.

      Comments about Smith-Victor 1000W Heat Resistant Softbox Light - 24 x 32" (120V AC):

      We purchased a pair of these lights for our video production studio. They do a pretty good job lighting our 10x10 shooting area with soft, even light. As with most professional gear, you get what you pay for. These aren't the highest quality or most well constructed lights around, but they get the job done and they're great for an organization with a tight budget.
