This review is from: 2000 Watt Photography and Digital Video Continuous Light Kit with 2 light stands
Pros: Affordable, carrying case, good size, easy setup.
Cons: CRI index of lights is probably low 80s, I spent $300 upgrading to 93+ CFLs.
Other Thoughts: The lights are easy to setup, but once they are setup I really don't feel comfortable tranporting them broken down. They do collapse into a small bag, but to break it down you would have to take each bulb out of the head and put them back into the styrofoam sleeves. I just leave them fully assembled.
