Smith-Victor KQ-83 reviews

KQ83 3-Light 1800-Watt Ultra Quartz Location Kit (120-240 VAC) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier Everything works great! I really recommend this product. Reviews say it's hard to put together but it's not hard if you have common sense. This was my first time buying and working with lighting and set up and break down was easy. There are no instructions but you don't need any. Light stand are not the best (a little flimsy) but you get what you pay for. I didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for my first set of lights but at the same time I need them to last a long time work well. So far, I couldn't be happier. And the carrying case is awesome. Would have been super happy if it came with 3 umbrellas instead of just 2 but I guess now I can buy a different umbrella for the 3rd light to see what works best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I use these lights for film and photography purposes. They create strong bright light and the umbrellas are diffuse the light perfectly. They take a few minutes to set up though and can be tricky to move when completely set up but they are more than worth the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent set... I use these lights in a home studio for portraits, etc. I really like these lights. They are the first studio lights I have owned and I am impressed with them. They do what I need them to do and they do what SV told me they would. The only problem I have had so far is that my studio is not big enough to do what I want to do with them.
