            Comments about Smith-Victor K22U-A 2-Light 1200W Portable Attache Kit with Umbrellas (120-240VAC):

            I purchased this kit for product videos at work. We're doing 15-30 second videos using our DSLR with HD movie capability. I have a photo shoot room, and this is our first foray in to video.

            First of all, this kit started smoking, but was much heavier than expected. It could be smelled throughout the entire building. The lights were inconsistent and got extremely hot. Furthermore, the instructions say not to use them for more than 30 minutes at a time—which I found nowhere in the information. Unfortunately, I can't imagine a time when you would only need 30 minutes of light for a video. So these were packed up and returned for a much more heavy-duty set.

              Just getting starting in my photography business, so my budget was slim. This lighting was inexpensive & perfect for what I need it for. Thank you B&H for your helping with advising me on what I needed.

                  I love my purchase and incredible B&H customer service. Give 4 stars only because the lamps has been burned out after 3rd time of use so I had to buy a new ones to replace. I've been told by sales rep it's because of somebody touched them. I didn't since the kit came 80% assembled.
                  So make sure you'll get additional lamps!

                  I love this product; It works wonderfully. I use it often for my photography shoots. The only problem, which you'll have with any lamps so powerful, is that the bulbs have an extremely short lifespan.
