These came in great shape, no scratches. Colors are as they looked on my monitor. I used them on some outdoor lights during Halloween to make the house look more interesting.... Made little frames for them with coat hangers. Left an air gap between gels and light to avoid melting. Outside in the rain several days and they held up fine. Great for my use, which required low cost!!
I bought these for my daughter's school project about lighting. They were inexpensive and came in great colors. The only downside was that they are slightly flimsy, so I wouldn't count on them taking much abuse. They worked great over some homemade lights and projected nice colors.
I had some older model dj lights that beam off in white only. Cut out the gel pack to fit over the lens of the light, and walaah. I have use of my old DJ lights now beaming in color. They had been sitting collecting dust for years, and now they are back on the tripod. Worked for me.
These arrived very quickly which was great. They are a little larger than I expected though, but I was able to make them work. Aside from the size, they work for what they're intended for. Overall, these are a great product.
