Before you read the review, This is for the SW-400 monolight. Looks like Amazon has combined it with other models and I can't speak for those. I've only used the Menik SW-400 model. I'd like to point out that many of Cowboystudio's products contain five-star reviews written by a ringers - probably the vendor herself. If you look at other reviews written by these users you will notice that all their reviews are for Cowboystudio products, all are glowing 5-star reviews, and the "story" in the reviews are completely inconsistent with each other. While this practice doesn't violate Amazon's policies, it is unethical and misleading. While looking at other Cowboystudio products I have discovered at least two such users with about 30 or so reviews, all for Cowboystudio products, all 5-stars, all absolutely ecstatic about their purchase, and all with inconsistent stories - in one the reviewer claims to be an experienced semi-pro, while in another a first-time photographer. I'm not saying all the products are bad, in fact I gave this one a 5-star review myself and will be buying several more of these heads, I'm just saying buyer beware and don't take reviews for Cowboystudio products too seriously, especially if there aren't too many of them.

now - on with the review.

I was looking for a cheap strobe to play around with. I'm not a pro but I've been shooting for 25 years as a hobby. I have my own darkroom and generally shoot medium format and recently got a digital camera to shoot some pinup photography.

I got this light as an experiment just to see what's possible with a strobe and it worked very well. The light was consistent and plenty strong for a small indoor studio. I also got a couple of wireless sync modules.

Style Name: Mettle600AD Verified Purchase
I am a commercial & editorial photographer in Colorado and just purchased this flash because my lumedynes are on their last leg and my calumet travelite 750's are getting long in the tooth. I was going to switch to AlienBee 1600's but After reading all the positive reviews and because they have a Bowens mount that should work with my travelite accessories, I decided to give these a try. I am very impressed by the flash, it is so useful to have the AC/DC option which I have already used twice in the 3 days Ive owned the flash. The build quality is very good almost as nice as the calumets travelite's and about the same as the Alien Bee's and better than the Photogenic StudioMax ac/dc strobes. They are pretty light for their power, though they are the same physical size as the calumet travelite 750's they are much lighter, though not as light as the AlienBees 1600. They recycle very quickly at full power on ac mode and about twice as long on DC mode. The audible beep is very useful. The battery is small and light and easily hangs off a light stand. I got about 100 full power flashes before the flash beeped at me to stop. I was concerned about the power output and whether they were really a true 600 watts, so I tested it against the calumet travelite, the Alien Bee 1600 and a Menik LD800 flash I have at the studio. I was able to use the same reflector on the Calumet, Menik and Mettle and the standard reflector on the Alien Bee, to my surprise they were almost all exactly the same! Coming to within 2/10's of a stop of each other at the same distance. I have to still test the flashes against each other with a soft box and a bare bulb but am impressed by their power.Read more ›

Style Name: SW-400 Verified Purchase
I was doing research on trying to find an inexpensive alternative for a strobe that we would use on a college campus in the photo dept. Budget is always a concern and I wanted an inexpensive light that would serve us for head shots, more serious environmental portraits, occasional product shoots, and whatever else comes up.

I bought this after reading many reviews and some guy that blogged about it. I found the light to be everything that was advertised. I was looking at Alien Bees as an alternative but the big drawback for me on all their stuff is their build construction as it pertains to how the speed rings attach to the front of the units. You can't use a very large light bank with any WL or AB product as if it's too heavy (or windy) the bank will tear right off the front of the strobe, sometimes taking with it the flashtube and modeling light.

These are built right with all metal hardware where it connects to the stand, and it uses a standard Bowens reflector attachment which is more than solid. I've already tried using a 4x8' bank on it with no problem.

So, I like everything about these units and would consider their more powerful models as well after shooting with this one for a few days. My only negative is the claimed power output is probably half of what it really is. These are 200-300 w/s at best, which is fine for the use I need them for. I did shoot an engagement portrait the other day of a couple standing in front of a small pond in the woods and it barely gave me enough fill for the sun which was low in the sky. It worked but I had to move the bank towards them more than I might have. But it did work... This is not the product to use shooting portraits on the beach in full sun or on the side of a glacier at noon...
