Not happy

Needed to use the lights at a destination Only to find when I got there that there were no bulbs in the box nor any clamps rendering them useless to me. I had to scramble to find clamps and bulbs in an obscure photo supply shop in Louisville Kentucky. Not happy

works great.

works great as always. Power cord has been redesigned yet again and looks to be more durable at the plug ends and switch.

Love it

Very affordable and popular light. I waited months to receive these out of stock lights... So they must be popular. Using as a cheap alternative to light a key wall

Great light! Should come with a bulb!

Love these lights - but was on the road for work, opened the box, and no bulb! Major scramble and thank goodness for Light Bulbs, etc. 30 minutes away - saved the show.

AMAZING

I really like this light as it's sturdy and portable. It's very bright, and can be used for photoshoot and filming videos as it's not heavy or clunky. Highly recommend!
