Pros: Inexpensive, very portable, comes with multiple colors of backing cloths and two lights.
Cons: The backing cloths only cover the back of the studio and the bottom - not even fully side to side.
Other Thoughts: I've added some extra Velcro(tm) here and there, a 14" mirror and 15" turntable and put a white sheet on the bottom and turned the included cloths to cover around the entire back and up the sides. I've also added an overhead light. I'm happy.

Pros: Set of three strobes, stands, and accessories are great quality. The instructional DVD is very good.
Cons: Lost of stars due to quality of carrying bag. With the strap the bag lifted about 3 feet in the air and ripped the sticking. Upon further review the stitching was not stitched in a method to secure the straps. Secondly, the training mat was missing from my package. Attempted to email Photobasics and their email address bounces.

Cons: The lights and diffusion are far from what you might want for shadowless photography inasmuch the background fabrics tend to reflect a lot of light and the two "lights" included with the package aren't all that great.
I bought this for a product shoot and ended up basically tossing the lights and jerry rigging my own. The "backgrounds showed age related wrinkles and werre okay but not great.
Other Thoughts: I got this for thirty at an online camera shop and still feel I paid too much.

Cons: Stitching is cheap, thin, and broke as soon as I opened the umbrella. Materials are a joke. This should have cost $2.49 not $24.99!! Avoid at all costs.
Other Thoughts: Seriously in this industry there are many choices out there, to stand out your product better be quality. This is not that product. Newegg should discontinue carrying it cause it will make them look bad.

Pros: Great product! I purchased this for my 9 year olds birthday to use as a mini studio for stop motion animation along with a Quickcam Pro 9000 and he just about died of perma-grin! quality seems great, pops open into a large tent all in one, no piecing together. Lights were larger and nicer then expected, seem to be well built good and heavy and compact well for putting away. The bulbs provided produce plenty of light. 4 colored backdrops for Chroma Keying is great. Weird that green is not included but not a con. The backdrops are solid no stitching, one side velvet to help eliminate spill of backdrop color onto subject for better results. After collapsing tent there is a nifty case to put it in and zip closed
Cons: the backgrounds have been folded several times into about a 10 inch square upon arrival. not a huge con but this created creases everywhere. could probably iron them out on the non velvet side but would have been better to roll them i think
Other Thoughts: 89.99 is slightly over priced i think for what you get but still has great value. If using for stop motion I would recommend putting some weights inside the corners of the tent to anchor it down a bit. The tent is real light. I put a board in the bottom of the tent but under the backdrop to give a solid floor and add weight to the tent, works great. Gave it to my kid last night and he was begging to stay home from school today, awesome product!

Pros: LED grants great power savings, cooler lighting. Can be used to illuminate in greater amounts without overwhelming the sockets in weak lamps or ceiling fans. Cost savings are greater than simple numbers, you have a better environment without the heat.
Cons: Just make sure you deal with honest sellers like newegg Unlike other sites like everbulb.com, which is the worst site you could ever deal with. Stay with newegg and AVOID places like everbulb.com where they lie and steal from their clients.
