Honestly, I love these lights. I bought two. And after all of my problems I still bought another (500) to go with them. Compared to my old CFL soft boxes, these are 100 times easier to set up and shoot. Literally out of the case onto a stand, plug and blast 'em with light. Love it.

Sad part, on arrival I had a line go out, flicker a bit, and ultimately die. Very frustrating on delivery.

Second issue: They are WAY to heavy to use a bottom swivel mount. Anything less that a C-stand with a sand bag will be toppled by this. A yoke mount would go a LONG way in improving things.

Other than that, power is good, heat is super low, and color temp is dead on.

I got the light with 2 strips of lights dead on arrival. It still kicked off a ton of light without them, but for it being brand new, I found it pretty annoying that it had dead pixels out of the box. Luckily Amazon has an easy return process so I could get my money back. I'll be looking somewhere else

I've tried putting gels on this light to bring it back closer to 5600k, but I've been unsuccessful. It's so green on skin tones. It was a waste of my money.

Compared to competitors (mostly the high end models) this works great! i have had no issues and i love having an inexpensive daylight balanced solution. Highly recommending to several friends and colleagues.

I bought two of these as a substitute for another 1000-LED panel, which turned out to be a mislabeled 500-LED model. These will do nicely. What I like about them: 1) the power supply is built in, requiring only an AC cord; 2) they are "2nd Generation non-flickering" lights -- basically because they substitute four individual zones with on/off switches for the usual dimmers, so they don't require a PWM light controller; and 3) the mounting bracket can attach to any of the four sides for convenience during use. They put out a LOT of light, but remain quite cool. I wish they had a diffuser over the LEDs, but otherwise they are perfect for my needs.

Like other reviewers, I too received the wrong product. I ordered 2 units but both lights that I received were similar to Fancierstudio 1008 LED Light Panel Dimmable Light Panel Bi Color Operates on DC 12V And AC 110V To 240V but without the battery attachment option. They are dimmable and bi color (3200-5600k). But that means only half the leds light with each color so they are half as bright as expected. I chose to keep the mis-shipped units instead of returning them to see if I could get the correct lights. These will serve my purposes but I would have preferred the others. As for these lights, the dimmer dial is a little wonky and is sometimes very slow to respond. Also the barndoors are loose and often move under gravity. I have tried to tighten them but they come loose again very quickly. I guess you get what you pay for or at least a similar model.

I bought 2 of these just for the price. It works great if you work for standard video, but when using a DSLR it flickers when you go higher than 1/120 shutters speed. So this doesn't work for high speed camera like the Sony FS700

I've had this light for about a year. It is a handy light to have, very good output. It does flicker at 1/50th shutter, but 1/60th is fine. It's very easy to use, and as long as you aren't pointing it almost straight down, I haven't had to worry about stands toppling. Others have suggested a yoke mount would be better, but with a yoke, you can only aim downward to a point before it gets in the way. A sandbag is always good to have, though!

The barn doors leave a lot to be desired. Like many others have stated, they are pretty loose. TIP- What I've found is that the screw that holds them to the frame threads into the frame, and will bottom out, rather than keep spinning. So, even though you feel like you've tightened the screw all the way, the doors are still loose. So, take a 9/32 (?!?) socket and really torque the nut down once the screw is fully seated. I also added a lock washer for good measure.

Lastly, the ILED 1024 Softbox is a great addition to this light. It adds a nice diffusion to the light and cuts the curse of 1000 shadows found with LED's.

This lamp is amazing! Super bright, good for film work, great for interviews, I also use it whenever I'm painting a room or installing something in a dark room or closet.

The mounting hardware is very average. Barn doors are lazy and need lock washers. These are cheap enough and bright. I think these are closer to 5000k than 5600k. Amazon shipping and return policy cannot be beat.
