Photogenic PLR2500DRC reviews

PLR2500DRC 1,000W/s PowerLight Monolight with PocketWizard Receiver (UV) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these lights! I have 3 of the photogenic PLR2500DRC 1000W/S lights. I have used them indoor and out they have worked flawlessly for me over the last year. Easy to use built like tanks. The only knit picky thing I would complain about is the the flash tube cover can become unlocked and slip off easily. On operational problems at all.
