    The lights are really good for the price you pay. They stay cool and give a cool white light for the stage. They use standard 55Watt CFL bulbs in the 5500 spectrum. I like the ON/OFF button for each bulb. That way I can adjust the intensity of light. The stand is pretty sturdy. I used them with the white cloth cover (included) and for video in a church setting. 2 lights were enough for my stage which was about 40'x10'. The bulbs are delicate. [...]

      Comments about Interfit Super Cool Lite 655 2-Light Kit (110VAC):

      I only went with 4 stars in that the lamps are a little finicky to install, and make the unit not terribly robust for transportability. However, I purchased these, and a few other Interfit "Cool Light" kits, for fixed studio work. At that, they have performed flawlessly. As you might imagine, the coolness, vs hot lights, and the Daylight balance, is what I was ultimately looking for.

            The price is right, but they do not collapse to a reasonable size for storage. Arrived in a box weighing 53 lbs. If you have a permanent studio with space to leave these lights set up all the time, then fine. If you need lights that pack easily for storage when not in use, or require modest portability, look for a different type of light. (any lights based on multiple CFL blulbs will likely be similar)

              Comments about Interfit Super Cool Lite 655 2-Light Kit (110VAC):

              I love these lights! I am just starting out and I needed the lights for an indoor studio (no natural light at all) for portrait photography. I was really afraid of purchasing fluorescent lighting because I don't like the cool, washed out look it gives to photos. But the light emitted from these lights is fairly neutral. I do warm the temperature in photoshop occasionally on people with pinkish skin (especially newborns), but other than that there really isn't much need for color correction. I use the lights with all lightbulbs on and the light is more than sufficient for me. I shoot at a low ISO (about 200) and a pretty wide aperture (1.8 to 5.6). These lights work fine with these settings for portraits. The stands and the softboxes are very sturdy. I would not recommend them for traveling as they are a bit bulky and they take some time to tear down and set up. Also, one of my bulbs was broken when delivered. I have not yet contacted B&H about a replacement. Hopefully it will be handled easily.Another problem is one of the switches sticks a little but it hasn't created a problem for me yet.
              All in all I would definitely recommend these lights for portrait photography.

                This kit put out a lot of light, and since I got two lights my video footage looks better than ever. I like how each lamp can be turned on/off by switches. Putting it togther can be tricky because there are no instructions, but a detailed look at a picture of the unit assembled online is all you need. The lamps for this unit are large, about 3 times the size of a tungston house bulb. A few of my lamps were bad when I got it [...]

                  We bought this kit for shooting newborn babies, whose parents are sometimes nervous about strobes.
                  For the price, this is the best kit around. We looked at the Wescott's, which are twice the price, and decided the premium in price wasn't worth it.

                  Pros:
                  relatively bright (brighter than the TD5s)
                  6 levels of brightness
                  relatively inexpensive
                  light units themselves are well constructed
                  a rolling travel case can be purchased to transport the kit

                  Cons:
                  the stands are just ok, the included octabox is lower quality than wescott or Paul C. Buff.
                  Big and somewhat awkward to maneuver on stand, have to remove bulbs every time you want to change something (attachments, etc.)

                  Overall, we're very pleased with the purchase for our purposes, and would recommend to anyone looking for continuous lighting. It's the best value out there.

                        I bought the product to use for video recording. It fairly easy to set up the stand and the bulbs, and not so easy to set up the shade.The bulbs are very fragile. [...]The product (bulbs in particular) are very tricky to move around on a flight. I had to put all that would 5 (which where all that would fit) into my hand luggage, and try and find new bulbs (with no luck) at my destination.I succeeded in breaking all five when I set up the lights to high, and the set up just fell by itself. Should have aligned the heaviest area to one of the three legs (or just not raised it so high). But I'll replace them and continue to use the product.

                        Get the bag for the 2 heads, you'll tank me later!

                        For the price, this kit puts out a lot of light. The stands are sturdy, though I use some hefty sandbags to keep them solidly anchored. The smaller, round head is solid, but you have to remove all the bulbs when you take it off. I also wish there was an easier way to mount the wide octagon diffuser, but it at least feels sturdy. I also like that each bulb has its own switch, so the lights can be dimmed.

                        Three of the 12 bulbs were shattered when they arrived, but B&H sent replacements right away.

                        The amount of light coming of these heads is great. If you are looking for easily controlled lights these are for you but if you need something compact and light look else where. I would suggest these to anyone working in a studio.

                        The lights are really good for the price you pay. They stay cool and give a cool white light for the stage. They use standard 55Watt CFL bulbs in the 5500 spectrum. I like the ON/OFF button for each bulb. That way I can adjust the intensity of light. The stand is pretty sturdy. I used them with the white cloth cover (included) and for video in a church setting. 2 lights were enough for my stage which was about 40'x10'. The bulbs are delicate. [...]

                          Highly recommended lighting setup for video or photography. Can easily see where the shadows are during setup and best yet, they stay cool. Great value for the price. One bulb wasn't working when I received it [...]

                          Excellent cool light option for continuous lighting. Though cumbersome, it's ability to be modified and it's great price make this a good option for studio use. It's easiest to have a place to store it assembled to avoid the time of set up and repacking of all its pieces.

                          Due to the flawed design of the umbrella hole on the Monstar One Light, I'd recommend the 655 over it. Mounting one and placing the other in a large parabolic umbrella puts out a decent amount of light

                            I'm a fine artist and use these in my studio for painting as well photography. There are several parts to the lights which are made of plastic, which could possibly break with excessive wear and tear, but for my purposes they are fine. They give off a nice color light (not too blue) and are quite bright. You can control the number of lamps which are lit with individual switches, which is nice. I got them because they can be left on for long periods of time. One issue I had, which may not be a problem for photographers, was that when using one of the two reflectors which comes with the lights there was some overheating after about two hrs. The reflector is plastic, so I drilled several holes in it to allow heat to dissipate. This seems to have solved the problem. All in all I find these very useful in my studio.
