          I bought two lights and they're bright. The light itself is designed in the US and assembled in Korean. The lightbulbs are Made in China though. Generally I avoid Made In China gears, so I'm happy that the light is not MIC.

            Comments about Westcott Spiderlite TD6 Daylight 36 x 48" Shallow Softbox Kit (120V):

            My main reason for this purchase was for newborn photography light. I prefer natural light on babies but sometimes it is not an option. This light is perfect for my needs.

            Not sure how durable it will be over time but main body of the TD6 is well made. Did question why there was 2 extra holes with no screws in their place but was told it came that way.

            Wish there are a hard travel/storage case to protect the lights and the spiderlite. I haven't found one yet.

            Color is perfect!

            Been using White Lightning slave units for the past 12 years and taking nothing away from them (they are great) both my clients and I love the continuous daylight unit. Certainly helps with those that are prone to blinks when the slave units would go off and because of that my clients know there is no sudden flash coming so they are more relaxed as well.

              I first saw this light in use at the Photoshop World Expo in Las Vegas a couple weeks ago. I was very impressed. I had to have one for my home studio. It was very easy to set up, nicely protected in the packaging, and Wow! First time turning it on it was as if a whole new world of lighting had opened up for me. Very nice soft light, and pretty much what you see in your subject before shooting is what you get on camera. I use this sometimes by itself and sometimes in combination with a strobe. Wonderful continuous light! I may just pick up another one. Now if only it were battery powered.....If it were, I would have given 5 stars.

                I use this product photographing babies and adults. It has a beautiful, soft light that is adjustable in intensity and easy to set up and break down. Previously, my strobes and their soft boxes were dangerous to take down because of the way the rods were practically spring loaded and very difficult to remove. I was always in fear of losing an eye. Not so with this soft box.
                I'm not sure if they have a case for this product that would allow me to transport it w/o taking each bulb from the fixture, but if they did and it was reasonable I would definitely purchase that as well!

                  This light was exactly what I was looking for. Supplemental lighting for my natural light studio. Perfectly balance for daylight. Able to be modified for different intensities of light. Beautiful, large light source. It's basically a mobile window. Such a great addition to my studio. Will definitely expand my creative horizons.

                        I was suprised that I could get a 5.6 aperature 400 iso and 200 shutter in a dark room with 1 light so no worries about using this for newborns. Prolly great for kids too as was told not good for kids because of motion but that is a good speed I could push it with two lights being continuous no worries :)

                        This is absolutely my favorite constant light now. Powerful (for a constant light source), 3 output modes, and a nice sized softbox to go along with it. I already tested this against product shots and it works great!! I'm assuming it'll come up with nice results on a portrait. Not as portable as the ice light but more powerful and a more even spread of light

                        I bought this light to use it as a constant light in my studio opposed to strobes. Mainly using it as a fill light. Love the results! When purchasing this light, consider buying a carrying gear for it.

                          I've only used for one session so far - and it was a short video production (I typically shoot stills), and all I can say is:

                          The heavens parted... the sun came out... and the angels sang! (cue the orchestral swell of music...)

                          I can't wait to use it in my regular photo sessions as well as teaching applications. WYSIWYG light + yummy quality = happy girl.

                          Was easy to set up - I'll typically use in combination with natural window light in my studio, as well as during basic photography classes that I teach.

                          Yes, I would buy this again.

                            OK, have only had this for a week now, but can say that I am impressed. The light is pure, soft, cool, and daylight balanced.. and what you see, is what you get - takes all the guessing away regarding how shadows fall, etc. And, unlike strobes... this works for both stills and video.. very well. Glad I got the shallow softbox as it works well in small spaces. The only downside is that there is a bit of a "hotspot" in the center. Wish there was baffle, but in truth, it has not been a problem with any shooting. Softbox is large enough to give a truely soft and beautiful light. So, what is the downside... not much, except that the bulbs have to be removed from the head for takedown/transport... and since they are both expensive and breakable - caution is the word.. but its not insurmountable. I got the Deluxe carry case as well and it does a great job of providing room for stands, soft box, reflectors and bulbs. So far, I am a happy camper!
