    I bought this to replace my 20 year old strobe setup. The combination was a good start and I was able to add another light and some grids to complete my setup. The lights are powerful and very adjustable. The softboxes are fine but a little small, I would have liked them a little bigger but they still work well. The cases are nice however I ended up putting everything into one padded hardcase since the existing cases had zero room for anything additional. The transmitter did not work well out of the box. Even with a new battery, this transmitter would only work about 1 to 2 feet away on any freq. After lots of troubleshooting, both B&H and Manfrotto thought it needed to be replaced.... Once replaced the transmitter worked fine. I took off one star for the quality control on the transmitter, otherwise the kit works well.

    The cases and accessories are everything you will need to get started doing quality flash photos. I have a few complaints however. First of all the transmitter uses a watch battery that is not available at all stores. Secondly The softbox design does not allow for a truly quick breakdown. You have to dismantle the entire soft box to put it away, it does not collapse like other designs I have seen. If you are planning to really move around with this kit I would go ahead and buy yourself a couple white umbrella softners for travel. If you are only planning to shoot in one area then the softboxes are ok.

                Comments about Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4 2-Light To Go Kit:

                I bought these lights to supliment a set of Quadras for professional portrait work. The quality is great but the light stands are a little weak for the heads. I will most likely have to upgrade the stands. Still the kit was worth the price and cheaper than building the kit and buying seperately. If the light stands were of better quality, this would be a perfect kit. Even if the kit price was a little higher. If you are not use to studio lights from Elinchrom, be sure to screw the modelling light in to their full contact point or it will not work and you will think they are defective. European socket treads for modelling lights are deeper and take several turns to get to the contact point. The D-lites are easy to use and have a simple interface and are working great with my Quadras. Of course, I would have prefered to get a second set of battery operated Quadras but the price of the D-Lites just made them a better choice.
                The stands bring the rating from 5 to 4 stars....

                  Comments about Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4 2-Light To Go Kit:

                  To start with, I've used Elinchrom (Swiss made), years back in Italy. I cannot say that my purchase is the best on the market, BUT it is more that I or any "portrait", and I mean "portrait" not "head shots", photographer needs. It has finally allow me to work with my Fujifilm X-PRO1, just like I used to work with FILM cameras. I do admit, I did try to read the instructions and look at some video on Elinchrom flashes; just plug in and go like the old days...! I'm not a computer man!!! A good camera, one good light source (I use only one!)and personal creativity WILL give outstanding results. Thanks to B&H, the purchase and speedy free delivery, did make it a simple HAPPY experience. And since I am an original Italian, I say to You all: G R A Z I E ! Daniel..., P.S. I do miss the classic, free sponsored, workshops that I used to go to, like: Balcar, Polaroid, Mamiya, Windolights...and more.

                  You can't beat the easy set up and wireless capabilities of this kit. It's a great kit that is worth keeping around and adding to it. I was looking for a powerful kit that I could use in the studio and this has been the anchor to that. Between functuality, quality, and price, there is no better deal. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for studio lighting.

                  As for the lights, they are pretty great for in studio use. They are easy to sync and setup. The softboxes are very lightweight and also easy to put together. The only drawback is the light stand. The light stands are manfrotto, but probably the cheapest stands they make. They aren't air stands and a small amount of wind can knock them down. The bag for the light stands could also be better. I would definitely recommend these lights, along with the suggestion of getting other stands.

                  the kit consists of excellent gear at a great price and the package is well thought out. it is my first studio strobe setup and it had a lot of what i needed to get started and learn how to use the system. My two criticisms for the kit would be that they should have also included an umbrella set (i purchased separately) and there was no DVD included to help get going. I watched various videos on youtube to learn how to get started. Most of the setup and configuration was relatively easy but setting high-speed sync for the system did not work as originally instructed. I did get it working, but i'm not quite sure how. Get a light meter to work with the kit, it is really essential for setting up your shots. I have a lot to learn, but I feel like i'm off to a good start with this kit.

                    For the price, you can't beat this setup. Two Manfrotto stands, 2 Elinchrom RX-4 heads, lightboxes and a transmitter and carrying cases for all.
                    On a recent trip to NYC, I stopped into the B&H store. The clerk was quite knowledgable and showed me several light kits. I bought this one based on my needs and his recommendation.
                    If you only use a speedlite, this would be the next step up. The strobes are plenty powerful for indoor and limited outdoor applications.
                    I use these with a Sekonic Litemaster Pro L-478D lightmeter for perfectly exposed headshots.

                        These Elinchrom lights are great. The whole kit comes with everything you need. The only draw for me is the Manfrotto lightstands that came with my kit. They are a little subpar in quality... I think they could be a little more heavy duty.

                              So far I'm liking the light set. I'm new to studio photography and this set is very easy to work with. Watched a short video on you tube and had it up and running in no time.

                                These are very good entry-level lights. They are easy to set up and to use. I give them 4 stars because the modeling lamps could be brighter. Even at maximum output, they are a little on the dim side to me. Other than that, they are a good investment.

                                These strobes are so simple to set up and get familiar with. It probably took me about 10 minutes to figure out how they work in their entirety. Great quality light, more than enough power for my needs. And although it's just a novelty at the moment for me, the USB Skyport is such a great feature. I would absolutely recommend this package to anyone.

                                  Comments about Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4 2-Light To Go Kit:

                                  I wanted to have a mini kit and went with Elinchrom. The choice was obvious as I have already used them and I love the quality of light it gives. Trust me just with this kit you can do wonders! The entire packaging is perfect so that you can easily carry it around and the Manfrotto stands which are provided are also steady. You might need a sand bag if you are doing outdoor shoots in a windy like situation otherwise they are fine.
                                  One of the best thing I like is that you don't have to buy pocket wizards to trigger the lights. Everything is included!
                                  I will definitely recommend it if you are looking to start off with studio lights!
