          Comments about Westcott Strobelite Plus Monolight (120VAC):

          These are very nice monolights for the money. For anyone who understands the basics of flash photography, just take them right out of the box and start using them. The controls are very well marked and very intuitive. The housings are well built. The bayonet style mounts for reflectors and light rings are really nice; both the rings and reflectors are off and on in a jiffy. I had a few Chimera light boxes, and with the appropriate rings they fit perfectly. Recycle times are good. I'm am using these lights to photograph products for our business so my needs are fairly simple; these lights are perfect for small product photography, still lifes and portraits.. If you are looking for something cheap, think twice before spending money on some of the junk that's out on the market. For a just a few bucks more you can pick up no-bull set of lights that will serve you well.

            I'm a professional photographer who prefers to shoot nature and architectural settings. I do shoot posed models at times in outdoor or studio locations. This light is a complement to my other strobes (Nikons). I like the variable Modeling light, the fast recycling, easy mounting (very) and the sensor that picks up on my other strobes and triggers the Monolight. For an inexpensive light, someone thought this out well. Nice addition to my system. I'd buy it again...wish I had gotten it earlier.

                I have not had the opportunity to use the flash yet, but. Have set it up and tested it. It seems to work as advertised. It came quickly and arrived in tact. I do wish it came with a case or something to keep it in that kept it safe. I am surprised that I can't even find one specifically for this light to buy separately either.

                    Comments about Westcott Strobelite Plus Monolight (120VAC):

                    Mostly used for product photography so far. 400ws x 2 lights is plenty in studio. Good design and controls. Easily accepts my Photoflex softboxes and other modifiers using common Bowens style speedrings or S mount. I also got the barn doors kit which comes with gels and grid. Unit does not have an internal fan, therefore runs silent which I like in a small studio. No issues with overheating after several hours of use. Durable plastic construction for studio use, but no case included for regular travel. It's well made but not the toughest unit for location work. The tilting mount to attach to a light stand could be beefier, though is adequate. I suppose that and the lack of an internal fan keep this model at a nice price. Quality of light is excellent so definitely worth considering.

                        I consider myself to be an advanced amateur photographer. I am an architect and I purchased this light and a light umbrella to supplement artificial lighting within the buildings we need to photograph; it has worked very well. The unit is very intuitive, equipped with a good modeling light, and appears very durable. I really like that I can dial in the precise amount of light I need to capture the right photo. I can either use the strobe light as a direct flash or (more commonly) in conjunction with the umbrella to reflect light on a broad area. The flash renders good colors that are true to form.

                          I currently own the Westcott PLUS Three Light Kit just because my wedding photography and special event photography demands me to be mobile. The kit is WONDERFUL and provides me adequate power, flexibility per head and most importantly, the strobes don't overheat. I needed a fourth head with more power to accompany my new parabolic umbrella. I needed the strobe to have just enough power so that I could only bring one strobe, stand and umbrella to special events. All I can say is KUDOS to Westcott for this incredible product. All I wish now is that the three head kit came with 400w strobes instead of 200w. Needless, this strobe is well worth the money.

                            Nice strobe!
                            The great thing about this package is it is small and light weight! It works well on a boom with a moderate softbox attached. Clean flash, good recycle time.
                            The only thing I wish it had was 'Master' mode, as a flash activated slave unit it is fine, just an upgrade for next version.
                            I would recommend this little powerhouse to anyone.

                              This is a great studio light. I've used it several times in the studio and it works great.

                                Most often used at High school reunions. In home portraits, church events. Groups of 5 or less. Used with several 500W constants to raise ambiant light level. Strobes are direct/spot. Not powerfull enough for multi person setting when used alone. One person with strobe 4ft away(45 inch umbrella) iso 200 works. I dont think I will ever use this strobe below full power.
                                Nice and light. I like being able to turn the beep off. The flash sensor works great. I will buy another, maybe two. Direct plug into 110 outlet is nice. Not lugging around power supply, priceless.

                                The Strobelite Plus was purchased as a portable light, while shooting a church directory. It has far exceeded my expectations. It is easy to use and provides excellent lighting. Definitely a good value.
