There is a saying bounded round the industry. Good fast and cheap you can have 2 of 3 but not all three. Well this is a product that comes closer than most to being all 3.

I personaly use this unit on my battery location strobes. At low light times sunset and civil twilight it fills without overpowering and I wind up with beautiful images. They are also very light so I can have assistants holding them with little effort. Additionally they can be clamped to all sorts of places you would never get away with a heavier unit. It is easy to pull diffusion and change modifaction to suit your needs as well. The only thing I find with these is they can be tempremental to get back in the bags..... ok any maybe they wear out a little sooner than other products but I really do enjoy using them.

Softbox has great quality construction, but is not 36"x48". It is 31"x42".When I call Photoflex customer service, they just give me the run-around and say they get quite a few of these complaints every year. The guy then asked me to write to his sales dept, (instead of him doing his job and relaying the message himself), to let the sales dept. know about the discrepancy. I call that being lazy and dishonest.Photoflex tries to cut corners on amount of materials they use, hoping customers won't notice. I consider this very dishonest and will never buy another Photoflex product again.[...]

    I use this with my AB800 and I have to say, this thing is HUGE! So far Ive used it a handful of times and loving it so far. The quality is great and seems like it will hold up for a long time.

          I use this softbox with a Elnstein Paul C Buff 640 ws flash and I am very happy with the results of the light that I get out of the softbox. It was a little hard to set up at first but after it was together worked great. I also liked that you can use this box in several ways.

            I needed to add additional soft boxes to my studio lighting and Photoflex are well made yet light weight. They are not the most expensive product you can purchase but the quality is outstanding. I also purchased the grids to attach to the front to provide more directional light.

              Used mostly in the studio for large product photography and 3/4 length portraits. It is a quality made product that assembles easily (once you've figured it out). All in all a pretty nice softbox.

                I mostly use Chimera medium super softboxes which are the same size as this one, but when it came down to buying for myself, I chose this because of the features and the price. The fabric might not be as sturdy as the Chimera, but functionally, this is identical with similar light quality. I've only shot with it a few times, but I'm certain this will last quite a while for me. No more running around to the rental houses. Great value here.

                  Great construction, definitely seems well built and able to withstand 8 hours a day every day of use. really lightweight considering the size. we have some "other" brand litedomes which are much smaller that weigh just as much as this and puts undue stress on the stands.

                        I purchased this softbox to use with my product studio setup. I have this box attached to an Alien Bee 800. I love Photoflex products as they are a great value, easy to setup and are very durable. I now have about 7 of these all different sizes and have yet to have one break or lose quality. Highly recommended if you do any product shooting.

                          The quality is consistent with Photoflex- built to last and affordable.

                          This soft box produces soft lighting you would expect from something this size.

                          It is a bit fiddly to put together at first, but the second go at it is easier.

                                    I own several Photoflex products, and I've never been disappointed by them. This is another. It is well-built, but lightweight. This is my first softbox, so assembly was a challenge the first time. (Hint: It helps to read the instructions.) The quality of light is great, and I expect to be using it for a long time. Just a note, this a large softbox and it may need a heavy stand to balance it. I initially had it mounted on a light stand and it was a little tipsy.

                                        This is the fourth Photoflex product I've purchased, and like the others, the quality for the price is great. It is well-constructed and lightweight. This is the first softbox I've owned, so the rods were a challenge the first time. (Hint: It helps to read the instructions.) The light quality is great. I expect to be using it for a long time.

                                          I use the softbox in my basement studio with my Lumedyne 400ws portable light/power pack.

                                          shoots f/11 @ 200iso @200ws with the subject 5'away, with nice even soft white light.
