Good size and dimensions for a medium sized softbox.

The construction is perfectly acceptable but certainly could be better. If it were made from the same materials as their 7' octabox it would probably be slightly heavier but I could handle the trade off for durability.

The small clips that fasten the internal diffuser to the softbox are a pain. They're fiddly and take too long to clip on. Velcro would've been better

It's very efficient though, with an even distribution of light. It does it's job well and at the end of the day that's really what matters most.

I am doing this review objectively starting with 5 stars the deducting for a few flaws ....This SB is under $100 and is very good value for money with the light it produces, it is lightweight and it stores very easily....The things I don't like, The material does not cover the speedring completely (you get some light exiting here, the speedrings are expensive and the Alloy on the ends of the rods can bend/crimp very easily where the go into the holes on the speedring, I assembled mine as per the instructions and they bent while pulling the cover over the rods.

I needed a new medium softbox. The white interior is the way to go. Photoflex has always been a good
reliable brand.

Comments about Photoflex Medium LiteDome (24 x 32 x 17"):

I've used this particular soft box in the past and really loved the even light it produces. Great quality and easy to set up. Unfortunately I heard the company has now started to go under due to the owners passing so I quickly had to purchase another one of these before they run out. Great product and even better saving compared to other light diffusion that costs 3-4 times the price. I would definitely recommend to others

Excellent. I was given a small lightdome a few years ago and when it came to replacing a few Chimeras, I chose these. Very happy with my choice.

Good light modifier. Maybe not as well constructed as the higher-priced brands but at the price I can have more sizes and shapes. Still it is quality construction and works as described. I would make the same choice if I had it to do over.

        Simple, standard softbox - lightweight, easy to use and exactly what you'd think it would be.

        It is easy to bend the poles though, so be careful.

          Impressed with the build of this box, nice quality.
          Nice even lighting for table top product shots. This replaced my larger Chimera that had become yellowed with age (20+ years old). Loved my Chimera and was a little afraid I'd be disappointed with anything less, but this LiteDome is top notch, I'm very pleased.

            It took a long time to arrive, but it was exactly what I was lookng for with the exception of, I thought I was buying two liteDome's and only received one. That is my error. If I had known, I could have gotten it from a local dealer for cheeper.

                I ordered 2 of these light domes for the backdrop lights for a large event on white for a Dance School.

                These softboxes ensured an excellent even and seemless light on the white backdrop.

                They were easy to set up and break down and are very durable.

                        What made me buy this product was its very light, no pun intended, material. Compared to what i've been using before, this photoflex softbox weighs almost nothing.

                        and the quick release feature is heaven sent.
