    Sub $400. Honestly expected to get them, and send them back. Just wanted to see if they could possibly be worth it...Answer is yes, for the price. I compared these 2 lights to my colleauges $1000 LED, and while his were brighter, my color was much closer to daylight. I glued little magnets on all four corners for an easy way to throw gel tints on there, quick mod that I think everyone should consider. Lightweight, the stands are a little shaky, but if you sand bag, you should be ok.

    One of the LED lights wasn't working upon delivery and I didn't have time to send it back for replacement so I took it to an electrician he opened it up and fixed it, one of the wires was loose. Once I got it working though it worked pretty well. I like the over all outcome but didn't like that it was defective, dunno how long they will keep working.

      Comments about Bescor LED-200K Twin 200W Kit:

      As my first trial run in the LED lighting category, I wanted to find a low cost set that would be easy to use, lightweight, and offer all of the differentiating features of LED technology (wider aperture, dimmer control, low energy, and low heat). The LED 200K Twin Kit was everything I wanted for a short-term (6-to-12-month) solution.

      I would have liked to see the battery pack bundled into the kit.

      Comments about Bescor LED-200K Twin 200W Kit:

      For the price, these lights get the job done. They're relatively easy to use and provide plenty of light for tight shots related to green screen work. The dimmers also function as claimed.But you have to give the Chinese credit for mastering the absolutely cheapest manufacturing possible. How, one asks, do they figure out what materials will yield stripped threads the first time you use them? This takes enormous talent.On the plus side, except for the threaded fasteners, the tripods are fairly durable. They're equipped with rubber plugs to keep from marring floors and these were sized too small so that every single one of them fell out and went MIA. Oh well.

      Worth the money. Unfortunately the dimmer switch on one light did not work straight out of the box. Returned and will probably get the higher output kit.

          • Lightweight

          Cons

            Best Uses

            Comments about Bescor LED-200K Twin 200W Kit:

            I am writing this from a filmmaker's perspective, and I have not used the kit with still photography.

            Who this kit IS for:
            *People who want a lightweight kit to conduct on-camera interviews, and who are willing to be extremely careful with the fragile light stands. Will work well for spot news reporters, documentary interviews, and vloggers/YouTubers. You'll need an additional hair light if you want 3-point lighting.

            Who this kit is NOT for:
            *Those looking for key and fill lights for anything other than an interview or medium close up (or closer).
            *Those who want light stands that will hold up on a movie set.
            *Those who want LED lights that come with barn doors.

            What to expect:
            *6400K lights. If you want to use these around tungsten lights you'll need gels more orange than full CTO (see recommended accessories).
            *Light stands that will eventually need to be replaced depending on how careful you are with them (one of mine started getting stripped right away so I returned it).
            *A very light and portable kit.

            Other useful information:
            *The product information does not list the collapsed light stand height. You'll need to know this if you want to buy an appropriately sized case. It is 25.75 inches tall when fully collapsed. There are several hard cases that will fit both lights and both stands.
            *If you need to call Bescor regarding a product, their customer service is great, and you'll talk to someone in their New York office.

                Not real sturdy construction. Stands are nice, but proprietary and the heads aren't ball heads, they just rotate forward and back. Probably better for video work. Nice that they are dimmable. No appreciable hear even if on for 30 minutes. Don't seem to have ready-made gels to alter color temperature. Don't forget to order a case - it comes it a cardboard carrying case that will only hold up for a few shoots. Like I said, good enough for the price.

                  They are light weight, reasonably bright, and work in a pinch. Howeverthey are very cheaply constructed with all plastic casing and hardware. a thin pressboard backing is the only thing protecting the inner circuitry.If this is all you can afford, they'll work, but if you have a choice, don't be cheap and save yourself the hassel.

                  Comments about Bescor LED-200K Twin 200W Kit:

                  I'm using these in a small area with a Vidpro k-120 as a head light for a 3 point lighting setup to shoot a guitar instructional dvd. My small setup includes a Sony cx110 hd camcorder, & a Tascam dr-40 for the audio capture. A nice but humble rig, these lights were very appropriate for my needs. Even though they're flimsy & not extremely bright, they will work fine for any videographer on a tight budget with an up close project. Take a little time to work with these & the results will show. It beats spending a lot of money, unless your a full time pro. Give them a try, & you might be surprised.

                    Indoor weddings are easily disturbed by extreme lighting. I can use these cool lights and turn down the brightness to a point that gives me clarity but doesn't take away from the event. Light, easy to move and the stands are much sturdier than I had imagined.

                        The Bescor LED-200k twin kit was disppointing. The light it produced was weak and not suited for portraiture at all (I was looking for a general-use light). It may be better for product photography and video. The stands were very flimsy which can be expected and this price point. Not recommended for any professional application whatsoever.

                            We use them to light a set in a studio and they provide a nice light level. The only thing I wish they had were barn doors, but we've improvised some.

                            The feedback from the users of these lights is that they love the daylight effect they produce. The base is quite sturdy and looks like it will take some abuse. The concern is with the area where the top attaches to the base. The users are afraid that it will break down with use. As we have only had the lights a couple of weeks, it's really too early to tell how they will hold up.

                              The color temperature is realy high (light is a bit too white) but you can easily unscrew the plastic transluscent cover and replace it by one of your own (or you can stick an orange gel color filter in its inner part)
                              The thing I like the most is its really light wheight. Mechanically speaking, the tripods are very simple (i don't know if they will last long) and the light boxes can be easily unscrewed and their electronic parts are easily accessible in case they have to be fixed.
                              The ac/dc converser is very light and small too and it's in the cable (not in the lit panel)

                                Comments about Bescor LED-200K Twin 200W Kit:

                                I purchased these for indoor macro work and they're ideal for that purpose — providing a good approximatation of daylight, plenty of it for macro or product photography, and negligible heat dissipation: it's really remarkable how cool the LED arrays run.

                                They're not exactly flimsy, but I wouldn't call either the arrays or the stands rugged and they're quite lightweight. I'd be hesitant to use them outdoors if there was a stiff breeze, even with a bag to hold them in place.

                                If you buy a set, be sure to check them out right away. As others have noted, the manufacturing quality control is a bit difficient. One of the power adaptors in my shipment was defective. B&H immediaately arranged for the manufacturer to send me a replacement, which arrived in about a week.

                                    This product has limited value for the lighting process. It does not seem to have enough power to light a subject except under really shaded areas of daylight. The stands do require sandbag support due their light-weight construction and top-heavy panel-lights. Not a great overall lighting product.
