    uLite Constant Light with 20" Softbox (120VAC) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 20X20 wonder soft box Acquired 2 of these with Eiko Spiral Fluorescent Lamps (85W / 120V) for a shoot in a small corporate office. Used Manfrotto light stands with sand bags plus a Switronix LED Bolt with an Airbox attached as the back light. Turn them (Eiko) on 5 minutes or so b4 hitting record on camera as they take time to get to full intensity like any other fluorescent bulb, The ending result was excellent! Easy enough for a one man crew to set up and strike. Thanks BH for the Christmas special and thank you Westcott for a well built easy to assemble softbox.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inexpensive & Portable I'm glad I purchased 2 of these. I was able to fit all my clothes, 2 of these and 2 tiny light stands into my airplane luggage for a 3 day remote shoot. Partner two of these with 2 high-CRI CFL bulbs, two portable stands, and a high-CRI CFL clamp-light and you're shooting 3 point lighting for half the price of a plane ticket. These feel sturdy and don't get sloppy or come loose the way some of the other discount softboxes do. They could use a thicker diffuser, but because they don't get that hot with a CFL, you can use a white garbage bag or a shower curtain without worrying you'll melt something. If you're just starting out or need something that won't break the bank if the airline loses your luggage, grab a couple of these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good cheap soft light I got this half off thru B&H. At $ bucks (per light) it is worth it. I'm not sure that it would be worth a $ bucks a light. The metal (umbrella style) frame is pretty weak. Not nearly as strong of a metal frame as on a Rifa light for example. The diffusion is a little thin and cheap as well. You get what you pay for. Just be careful with it and it will work well. The quality of light (with a 500w ECT and the diffusion on it) looks good on subjects since it is a soft light. They are also light weight and compact down pretty small. If you need an entry level soft light that you can put standard base light bulbs in it and will mount on a baby pin, this is it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Fills The Void I have been in need of a constant light softbox for some time to shoot church and social events. I could never find a decent kit that would fit my budget. The Westcott uLite kit is exactlly what I have been looking far. It is not a pro kit; however,It is a sturdy enough softbox kit to take on locations and set up within 10mins. The kit comes with 2 500watt Eiko photoflood bulbs. They are very bright (Approx. 13,650 lumens)(3200 Kelvin) and hot, with more than enough light. However, be very careful handling them. They are fragile bulbs. I like the fact that you can change these out to what ever bulbs you want. The base is a E26 medium screw. The same size as your 100 watt CFL bulbs at @. The base of the socket has a cord with a on and off switch. It's pretty simple to set up. A very basic softbox that fills the void.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I could be more verbose... ... but B&H has a limit on characters in the title. Long story short? I like it. First softbox, purchased on-sale. Using 85W CFL (huge) bulb. I think even the 105W CFL would fit. I am vision impaired and use this for reading lamp. Bright defused beautiful light. No instructions but time, patience, and a on-line review helped me to assemble it without breaking anything. Make sure the heat vent ends up on top. I understand that there are more robust softboxes out there and were I constantly breaking this down and setting it up it might not be the best choice but for my sedentary needs it's perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great light for the price I ordered one of these when on sale to check out the quality and was so impressed that I immediately ordered another one. I bought an Eiko ECT Lamp (500W/120V) to go with it and with this combination the light quality is surprisingly excellent and powerful, especially for the price. I am anxious to try CFLs and LEDs with it as well. The frame collapses for storage and is quick/easy to set up. The construction quality seems good, although I can't speak to long-term durability since I just got it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Light System for the Money! I was tired of carrying around a large lighting system for location shoots. I looked into buying this and read several reviews before doing so. It did take a few minutes to figure out how to set up the soft boxes, but relatively easy. I used it the first day it arrived and fell in love with it. So much easier. I would reccommend the 500W bulbs as an add on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice rig for the price The only disappointing thing is I wish it mentioned exactly what part is required for mounting this to a tripod/light-stand. I ended up using an umbrella bracket to mount to tripod, and a rivet-setting tool (not ideal) to connect the light fixture to the umbrella bracket. There is obviously supposed to be some little metal post/rod to use in place of my Macgyvered rivet setter, but nowhere on the website or with the light fixture does it say what exactly that missing part IS, so I could go buy it. Other than that, the rig works great. I used it in a very small studio with just a 100 watt Reveal bulb (brighter bulbs were too harsh in the small room) in combination with natural window lighting and got some very nice, balanced lighting for a portrait session with my 8-month old second cousin. Great deal for the money.
