      Acquired 2 of these with Eiko Spiral Fluorescent Lamps (85W / 120V) for a shoot in a small corporate office. Used Manfrotto light stands with sand bags plus a Switronix LED Bolt with an Airbox attached as the back light. Turn them (Eiko) on 5 minutes or so b4 hitting record on camera as they take time to get to full intensity like any other fluorescent bulb, The ending result was excellent! Easy enough for a one man crew to set up and strike. Thanks BH for the Christmas special and thank you Westcott for a well built easy to assemble softbox.

      This was my first soft box, and it took me a few tries to put it together. I am still unable to get 1 corner in the slot... There are no instructions on how to put it together, but once I realized that the center pushes in and clicks it made the world of a difference. I have used it now for 2 newborn sessions and have been pleased with the portability and results on camera.

        Sometimes the simplest solution is the best one. This easy to use, easy to maintain is light and easy to travel and set up. I use this for fill fighting and also for lighting a green screen backdrop. It's affordable, dependable, and it works!

            Comments about Westcott uLite Constant Light with 20" Softbox (120VAC):

            I have been in need of a constant light softbox for some time to shoot church and social events. I could never find a decent kit that would fit my budget. The Westcott uLite kit is exactlly what I have been looking far. It is not a pro kit; however,It is a sturdy enough softbox kit to take on locations and set up within 10mins. The kit comes with 2 500watt Eiko photoflood bulbs. They are very bright (Approx. 13,650 lumens)(3200 Kelvin) and hot, with more than enough light. However, be very careful handling them. They are fragile bulbs. I like the fact that you can change these out to what ever bulbs you want. The base is a E26 medium screw. The same size as your 100 watt CFL bulbs at @. The base of the socket has a cord with a on and off switch. It's pretty simple to set up. A very basic softbox that fills the void.

                Easy to setup, works great as expected.

                I bought two uLite, one didn't come with light diffuser in the box. I contacted B&H customer service, who pointed me to Westcott service. Upon receiving my email, Westcott immediately shipped me a diffuser. Great customer service!

                        ... but B&H has a limit on characters in the title. Long story short? I like it. First softbox, purchased on-sale. Using 85W CFL (huge) bulb. I think even the 105W CFL would fit. I am vision impaired and use this for reading lamp. Bright defused beautiful light. No instructions but time, patience, and a on-line review helped me to assemble it without breaking anything. Make sure the heat vent ends up on top.

                        I understand that there are more robust softboxes out there and were I constantly breaking this down and setting it up it might not be the best choice but for my sedentary needs it's perfect.

                          The only disappointing thing is I wish it mentioned exactly what part is required for mounting this to a tripod/light-stand. I ended up using an umbrella bracket to mount to tripod, and a rivet-setting tool (not ideal) to connect the light fixture to the umbrella bracket. There is obviously supposed to be some little metal post/rod to use in place of my Macgyvered rivet setter, but nowhere on the website or with the light fixture does it say what exactly that missing part IS, so I could go buy it.

                          Other than that, the rig works great. I used it in a very small studio with just a 100 watt Reveal bulb (brighter bulbs were too harsh in the small room) in combination with natural window lighting and got some very nice, balanced lighting for a portrait session with my 8-month old second cousin. Great deal for the money.

                                I bought 2 of these units to throw in the grip truck for quick little set-ups when I didn't want to pull out the heavier (Mole) units. These are very lightweight units and a little on the fragile side, BUT they set up fast and give you a nice soft light source. You can't throw these around on the set and abuse them, but if you treat them with gentle loving care, they will give you the same quality light as much more expensive units and should last for many years. I also purchased the 4-socket adapter for these units and installed four 23 watt CFL bulbs. This gives plenty of nice soft light and keeps the talent cool too! I've not used them with a single globe (such as a 500 Watt incandescent) so I can't comment on how that works. Overall, a nice soft light source for a very reasonable price!

                                  I was tired of carrying around a large lighting system for location shoots. I looked into buying this and read several reviews before doing so. It did take a few minutes to figure out how to set up the soft boxes, but relatively easy. I used it the first day it arrived and fell in love with it. So much easier. I would reccommend the 500W bulbs as an add on.

                                    I ordered one of these when on sale to check out the quality and was so impressed that I immediately ordered another one. I bought an Eiko ECT Lamp (500W/120V) to go with it and with this combination the light quality is surprisingly excellent and powerful, especially for the price. I am anxious to try CFLs and LEDs with it as well. The frame collapses for storage and is quick/easy to set up. The construction quality seems good, although I can't speak to long-term durability since I just got it.

                                      I ordered the two light set and it is exactly as ordered and as expected. The light is good and consistent. My only sugestion would be if Westcott offered a bag to carry the gear in. I have two lightstands plus these softboxes. I did purchase a roomy tripod bag which solves the issues.

                                      The quality of the unit is very well made. It did not come with a case so it is awkward storing.

                                      I got this softbox as a starter. I've been wanting a softbox for a while, but am also not 100% sure how often I will use it. This was perfect for size and price to start out with. I do wish it came with the stand, but that would obviously add on to the cost.

                                      I got this half off thru B&H. At $ bucks (per light) it is worth it. I'm not sure that it would be worth a $ bucks a light. The metal (umbrella style) frame is pretty weak. Not nearly as strong of a metal frame as on a Rifa light for example. The diffusion is a little thin and cheap as well. You get what you pay for. Just be careful with it and it will work well. The quality of light (with a 500w ECT and the diffusion on it) looks good on subjects since it is a soft light. They are also light weight and compact down pretty small. If you need an entry level soft light that you can put standard base light bulbs in it and will mount on a baby pin, this is it.
