Comments about Smith-Victor K76 4-Light 4,000 Watt Professional Studio Kit (120V):

Bought this kit for a studio I assist. And began testing them once they came in.Once they arrived, Smith and Victor does a great job packaging their light kits. The bag is quite nice that you receive and has wheels for easy carry to on-location shoots. Note, this kit has separate glass to protect the bulb for each lamp, so one of our lamps had a broken glass piece, but BHPhotoVideo has great customer service and will help you with that issue if you receive your item with a broken glass.The lights themselves, well, they are definitely bright. I like the strength of the whole light kit. Plenty of light for any type of shoot. My nit-picks. Well, the Flood/Spot handle on 2 of the lamps is very flimsy for a metal piece. As if the handle is created out of a thin piece of metal. We had to be careful going back and forth between flood and spot. And if you give it to much force the bulb can pop out. So, be careful with that. I did state that I like the light output of these lights, but I wished they would have put a dimmer switch on the back of these lights. Oh well, remedy that with a separate dimmer controller and you are good.Pros, The barn-doors are solid and the stands are great for the weight of the kit and lights. Bag again, is super nice and sturdy with wheels for easy transport. And the power switches are very well made and seem to have a strong connection. The power wires on these lights are also long for easy moving around when setting up your lights.

Works great with putting together production events with green screens. Can be portable with the handy case. Will order this kit over and over for new future jobs.
