        It doesn't seem like 900 watt-seconds.

        Comments about Westcott Strobelite 3 Light Educational Kit:

        One of the three flash heads was defective. I used the other two in a photoshoot. The flash heads worked well using the built-in slave which was triggered by the camera mounted flash. The model lights vary nicely with the power level on the heads. The included carry case is great for travel. The heads are described as 300ws each, but seem a bit weak in light output to me. The reflectors arrived with dents in them, but they were easy to remove.

          Comments about Westcott Strobelite 3 Light Educational Kit:

          I bought this kit as my first lighting kit. I did not have the money I would have liked to spend on a lighting kit; however, I wanted to start off with something simple. I have not used the educational DVD or floor mat yet. I am still a little confused why they say each light has 300 effective watt/seconds when the replacement lights are only 200w/s. They are not that powerful; however, it is a good starter kit. .....

            I usually prefer natural lighting but purchased this studio kit to be able to offer more versatility for my clients. Set up was easy - now comes the learning part. :)
