    VA902 3-Lamp Fluorescent Cool Light (120 VAC) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and Compact Surprisingly small in spite of three bulbs. The bulbs supplied are tall and skinny. The spacing is tight since the bulbs do not fan out. The central threaded rod to hold the plastic diffuser disk (which blocks just the center area, the ends of the bulbs, with a white plastic diffuser), takes up what little room there is between the lights. Finding bulbs of decent high rating that fit may be a problem. But works great with the tall skinny ones supplied. Only one switch so it is all or nothing unlike a five or nine bulb where you can adjust output by switching on and off bulbs. Heavy like all CFL fixtures but not as front heavy and tipsy as some. The small size makes this a useful light for tight places with much better output than any single CFL fixture could provide. Compared to a five bulb 18 inch it looks almost tiny.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Very good light output, and well balanced color temp. I especially like the computer power cord plug on the light body which allows one to use the very long supplied cord or a shorter cord from an old computer. The supplied diffuser elimates hot spots for my applications. The adjustable angle clamp is a bit undersize and should be more robust for the size of the lamp assembly. I do product photography in a studio setting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, cool, versatile lamp! I just used two of these lamps for a video shoot in a very hot venue; they emitted almost no heat, were light and easy to move, were quiet, and functioned well as a main light source, as fill, and as hair lights. The price is very reasonable and includes three fluorescent bulbs. The lamps fit onto standard impact stands (not included) and come with two replacement fuses, but be aware that a fuse is already in the unit. It's somewhat hard to open the little drawer to get to the fuse (should you ever need to replace it), but you probably won't have to do this any time soon. An excellent buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Light Kit This VA902 light kit consists of 2 heads and 2 stands, 6 CF bulbs and 2 diffusers. The stands' air-cushion feature works well and prevents my fingers from getting pinched when lowering the sections of the stands. The lights seem bluish to the eye but provide well-balanced color when using the Daylight color temperature setting on a Canon 5Dii. The included diffusers work great for softening the light. These are not the brightest lights in the world, but work well for photographing small products on a background with the lights positioned about 2-3 feet away. I can use the stands set up on the floor, or set them on a table top with the stand sections all in their lowered position. The tightening handles and knobs work reasonably well, but there is a slight amount of play in the heads relative to where they attached to the stand, even when the knob is tightened hard. This is not at all a problem, however. The heads are surprisingly heavy but give the sense they are built well and are not a problem to move around. The large handle on the back of the heads are very convenient for aiming and carrying. There is an on-off switch on the back of the heads, also a convenience. The power cord is very thick and detachable, again very convenient. Should one want less light, one of the 3 bulbs could be unscrewed. When lights are on for a long period, they do heat up somewhat but do not get really hot like incandescent bulbs. This is a great value set up for light work for in-house product shots; it's not pro-grade, but in no way is it flimsy. I am very pleased with it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Low cost portable lights No Brainer Back Light or Subject Light. Good Suppliment to the 5 bulb Bigger version. The stands that come with these work well with this size Lamp. The reflectors are very light weight ( ding easy ). Other than all that. Good bang for the Buck !

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Buy - Would have given it a 5 Star I have always expected and received the best from B&H, the product arrived on time, unfortunately screws were missing, B&H sent me a pre-paid return shipping label for me to return the product and they said they will ship me a new one instead. Very knowledgeable sales associates helped me through this process. It would be even nice if this product had a dimmer built in. Overall, a very good buy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good for the price! I bought these to teach artists how to photograph their art work. They won't own strobes and these are perfect. Very bright and easy to feather the light. The light is very clean and balanced. A good value. Easy to set up and use. Encourage sandbags - the stands are light.Cool to touch too! Good starter kit or for someone who does not want to use strobes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value lighting This light is easy to assemble and mount on the Impact air-cushioned light stand that I bought with it. I also use the available diffuser sock to soften the light a bit. Using it in studio for video production (interviews) and am very satisfied. The product is solid and was packaged well; it arrived promptly as usual from B&H.
