If you have never put together a soft box, you may find it frustrating. However, since I have experience with soft box setup, I found it easier than most. It will likely take you 7-10 minutes per light to set up even if you know what you are doing. You have to unpack it, put it on the stand, attach the soft box, put in the 5 bulbs and put the cover on the softbox. No matter how good you are, this would take time with any similar unit.
The lights are bright and you can switch 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 bulbs on. It holds 5 bulbs and has one switch for each bulb. That's pretty cool for an affordable kit.
I own several quality light stands already. One of my favorites for the money is Giottos LC325 10.7 feet 4-Section Air-cushioned Light Stand which is currently in the $60 range per stand here on Amazon, so if you needed 3 for this kit, that's nearly another $200. Since I own several stands including nice C-Stands, I don't plan to use the stands that came with the kit. However, the stands are usable but are not the quality that I personally like.
Again for 15 bulbs, stands, a case, soft boxes and heads for under $200, you cannot expect the heads to be what you'd find in a $1,000 kit. I said that first to state that the heads are kind of cheap feeling, but they do the job. You need to just handle like you would anything else that is not super high quality.Read more ›
Is it studio quality? not quite, will it last forever? probably not.. but you get alot more than you pay for and it's all definitly decent quality.

Unpacking it, I only put one together as was so unimpressed I packed it right back up immediately after making this video for you all.
I was hoping to have something I assemble ONCE and can break down and move.
Not the case with this light kit.
I typically move from place to place and have to travel for different projects.
For this in particular item, you have to completely disassemble the entire kit to be able to pack it up. That means remove ever light bulb, remove the softbox pins holding it open etc.
it comes with a travel bag, but its kinda useless as this is really meant to set up once and not move it easily.
The material feels very flimsy, and the support rods feel TOO light. And not in that, "Hey cool, it must be an awesome material" light. More like "how thin can we make this?
the tightening knobs felt like i really needed to tighten them to hold them in place, which again means I wouldn't be transporting this very often.
I gave it 2 stars, because it's heart really is in the right place, and its actually pretty decent for the price.
The quality is just too cheap.
I was really disappointed in the quality and setup of this kit.
if you are someone looking to set up a permanent lighting situation (which i dont really see as realistic but hey thats just me) this would be a pretty nice kit for you.
if you're looking for something to pick up and take to different jobs, I'd highly recommend something else.
Actual lighting seemed pretty good so like I said, if you have a single use for this it might be worth your time.
Update on May 16th:
Return shipping on this was about 45 bux for me so keep that in mind if this may not be for you, save yourself the extra cash on shipping.
The Fancier website didn't provide much help. Someone did respond to my email, but didn't resolve.
It turns out you do not need speed rings to assemble the soft boxes. The holes are already drilled into the side of lights. All you need to do is an internet search for "how to put together a softbox" and just know that the "speed ring" is not needed and the holes to hold the rods are built into the side of the light already.
Also, you can't dim these, but you can control brightness by simply controlling the number of lights, their wattage, and/or the distance from the subject.
Other than that, you really can't go wrong at this price.
