    Savage M311000 Reviews

    Variable Power 3 Flood Light Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 30.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing, yet functional These lights work. They do a great job for soft lighting. Everything good I read in these reviews is true. However, I also have a lowel light kit. Lowel is higher priced, but is higher quality so that is what I'm used to. This kit has a very flimsy bag that keeps nothing organized, and you have to assemble the soft boxes every time you use them. Nothing about the kit is high quality (including the stands), or convenient. BUT once they are up and put together, they light nicely. I guess I would rather pay more money for an easy fold up soft box, sturdy stands, and high quality bag. I would like to say, however, if you are in a studio where you would not be transporting this to different shoot locations, they may be much easier to deal with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang for The Buck! I absolutely think these lights are an incredible value... I use them for in-home portraits & location floods. I hate the thought of losing or damaging expensive equipment, but these do the same job as units three times the price, without me having to worry about damaging them! The padded carrying case with shoulder strap and handles is an added bonus hardly mentioned in the product description, but certainly worth mentioning here. These lamps are heavily constructed and the casing of each flood is very durable. They do get VERY Hot and I think the unit could have been better insulated at manufacture, but whatever. Are there better floods? Certainly. Are there better floods in this price range? Absolutely not. These lamps are a real winner!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Economic vs quality? We used this kit in a small studio for instructionalvideos. The lights run hot, got a flimsy feeling and the light stands squeaked and creaked as we rigged the lights, and no matter how hard we tightened the screws it still was a little bit to lose to feel fully secured. The softboxes was not easy to assembly with the speedrings, and the softboxes felt a bit too flaggy. They leaked light and the vent flaps had to stay open to let the hot air out to avoid a burning smell. A good thing is that the heads are small and easy to place in a small studio and that you can dim the lights. 3000w sounds like much light, but we had to add some more fill lights to make it look natural.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from More Experienced I reviewed this item on 2/3/08 and will not repeat all of my earlier comments. I have taken well over 1500 photographs using this rig and transported it to several different sites - assembly and take down is a chore an understatement - I am now seriously looking for something more umbrella like to speed & ease this process the best I have spotted so far is the Lowel Rifa Ex but those are at a much higher price point. Hate the worthless instructions, like the lights but continue to desire a cool down fan only setting. Overall investment considered, this is a good set though I wish it offered an easier less stressful assembly and take down. The rods are under so much stress they have all bent some worse than others and I have been forced to staighten them. My set did not come with the paper backdrop but I have been using a Chromalloy background so that has not been an issue, ...

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fair price on decent lights I purchased this light kit to use in a corporate video production environment. After using the lights for three straight four-hour shoots I found the lights to be as advertised. There's nothing special about these lights but they do function well. The ability to dim them right on the fixture is a plus and the overall kit it nice a light to carry. On the negative side, the stands seem a little light-weight and flimsy and I wish the legs extended farther for greater stability. When fully extended, the lights do sway a good bit. The soft boxes are fine but I've already managed to snap one of the elastic loops in the soft box. All in all - good value for the money.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lights. but fans are noisy I bought these lights for indoor video production because I liked the variable power feature. It's great that you can adjust the light's intensity. but the deadly quiet fans are anything but. The whirring noise overwhelms any nat sound you plan to pick up on your camera's internal microphone. Definitely need to use wireless lavs or a boom mic around these lights. Otherwise, the lights work as advertised and are a good value.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT Set! I bought this set as I needed some portable lights for several on location video shoots I had coming up. They worked GREAT! The variable setting for the strength of the light is fantastic, and the set-up is not bad either. They do get hot so you have to account for that when tearing down, but they are cool enough to touch after I pack up my other equipment. The one draw back I have experienced thus far (it's minor) is the bag easily wears on the bottom. However, the lights have been fantastic. For the value, you can't beat this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for photography, not for video From a lighting perspective this product is excellent. Fans are extremely noisy and make it almost impossible to use for video production (unless placed extremely far from any mic's.)
