I liked this product for the price

I have always ordered from B&H every since I visited the store in New York it was amazing. My recent purchase was the KSB-500 500 Watt Economy SoftBox Light. At first it was a little difficult to put the soft box part together but I finally got the hang of it. It's not as easy as another soft box I had got before although that one was more expensive. The KSB-500 was priced right for the project I was using it for, and it's working out just fine.

Bad Idea

This product is horrible. I wish I had never bought it. The instructions they send with it does not go with the product. It took me at least a hour to put together because of how the assemblage is. The pockets aren't even there. I had to cut the Velcro from the tarp to put the rods in. I'm not satisfied at all. Now that I've got it put together I'm never taking it apart. I would never recommend this product to anyone. The only good thing about this product is the stand. This has been the worst buy I've ever had.

I love my lighting kit, but right after I put it together and plugged it in, the brand new bulb that came with it, blowed.

Strong light source, good price

It is a strong light source, great for interviews. It takes some time to mount, though, and it is not fully collapsable, as one of the parts will have to be carried separately. It is one the cheapest soft boxes from the store.

Blows out bulbs

I just moved it slightly and the bulb broke. Bought a few more bulbs. Turned it on, bulb fried. Put in another, moved the stand as carefully as possible and the bulb burnt out. Set up some shop lamps inside the soft box, eureka! Problem solved. Except the fire hazard factor.

Good Light Kit

This light kit is good. It did the job of lighting the small set that I was using. It does seem slightly cheaply built and I could have bought a better one but for the money, it seems like a good pick.

Good for the price

The softbox is large and seems sturdy and well made. It's a little difficult to put together but otherwise very good. The stand could be a little sturdier as it seems like it will tip easily. All in all it's a good light and it does what it's supposed to.
