42" Silver/White Reflector is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from good reflector Very bright reflective white side. Just enough texture on the silver side to reduce hot spots from imperfections. It does not lay flat like my round collapsible reflectors--warped shape affects the reflection--especially on silver side. I like that you can lean the square shape against something without it rolling, but would prefer the consistency of a flat reflective surface. I would give it five stars if not for the warp. I checked another 42 inch Wescott out--same issue, though my 32 inch square Wescott does lay flat. (Leaving the 42 inch reflector unfolded overnight seems to flatten it, but storing it folded again restores the warped shape.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally... I've purchased many collapsible backgrounds, diffusers and reflectors and they're never completely flat when opened. I've always assumed I'd have to live this until now. This product is perfect for maximizing reflected light and works like a light-mirror on the silver side. Kudos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flatness is the key! When open, its flat. So the bounce is even, especially on the silver side where the refection is more noticeable. like the handle loop on the case and the reflector itself. Durable thick frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Soft Side Fill I'm moving more to using a bounce as a soft side fill on most of my film & video shoots. I purchased this particular reflector because I have a client who consistently requests a 42 reflector as a side fill. I like the folding reflectors because of ease of transport and storage in a smaller home studio. I have two other 30 Wescott bounces I purchased 10 years ago that are in regular service and they still look brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westcott Silver/White Reflector This is just the right size to take on location and outdoor shoots and adds a nice, even fill light with the white side. The silver side is a little more specular but also fills nicely. Overall it is well made, folds easily and fits nicely into its case for total portability. I'd typically use a larger reflector for fills in the studio but this could be useful in the studio as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very stable Nice medium size for my assistant. I always reach for ambient light reflectors before I grab any stobes. When opened its nice and tight. The steel frame is very thick so if you're using the silver side the reflection is even, since it gets flat. The white side is a little weak though, I wish it reflected a bit more. The silver side is fine. The cover is nice and compact. Good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful reflector -- silver is high output Very nice, well made reflector. For me white/silver is the ideal combination. I used this on a photo shoot last week. Most of the time I was outside in bright sun and needed to reflect some light on the subject's face. Sometimes from over 10-feet away -- and the silver side, although too bright from time to time did the trick. It folds up very easily and the case is fine, too.
