Overall it's been a pretty good experience.

You can make your own version that will likely be much better and sturdier, in probably not much more time even.

The Lowel EGO tabletop Lighting unit is worth having if you enjoy product shots or food photography.

These lights are good for basic photography, but they are very poorly crafted and are worth probably a third of their actual price. First, their outer casing are made of cheap plastic, and you have to bend the plastic creases to get them to fit the internal light fixture. The whole thing feels flimsy and cheap.

Then two weeks after I received them, one just stopped working. The fixture had fried, and new light bulbs wouldn't work. Currently working on getting a replacement.

Overall: decent lighting at highway robbery prices!

This lamp is actually recommended by several food bloggers. This helps so much with the lighting, I also love that they include a piece of white reflective cardboard to help you bend and move the light as you desire. My one complaint about this lighting system is that is feels cheap. It is cardboard and plastic. With light use this should last me a few years. It works wonderfully, but with the materials that this is made out of, I just feel like I overpaid.

I bought two of these lights after seeing them mentioned on a food blog I read. As a food blogger, I'm constantly taking pictures of my food. Natural daylight is best for this purpose, but isn't always an option especially in the winter or if you're cooking late at night. Because of that, I needed a solution. I'd been previously using a CowboyStudio Table Top Photo Studio Light Tent Kit in a Box - 1 Tent, 2 Light Set, 1 Stand, 1 Case and while it was better than no light at all, the results weren't great. I liked it at first, but then found its size to be a huge limitation and that my pictures never looked as great as bloggers who were using daylight.

Six months ago I switched to these lights instead and have been pretty happy. It's taken some playing around to figure out the right way to position them so I don't get too much glare off shiny objects like plates or glasses, but still get enough light for the right amount of shadows and brightness in my pictures. Overall it's been a pretty good experience.

The only thing I don't like at all is the construction of these lights. When they come you have to assemble them, which I found to be a bit tricky and the whole time I kept thinking how cheap the construction felt for how much they cost. Granted, they are MUCH cheaper than a lot of professional lighting equipment, but for the price I wasn't picturing something that had to be assembled or seems like it could be damaged so easily. Thankfully, six months later these have held up well even though I sometimes cart them to other locations to shoot, but I am a little bit nervous about how these will hold up 1 or 2 years down the road. If they do fail expect that I'll come back and update this review so if anything happens.

I'm a food blogger and when daylight decreases as fall & winter approach, this light is the perfect answer. I use it often and love it.

I'm not a professional photographer but a food blogger who needed a clean light to take good pictures. Another food blogger recommended it, and I bought it with very good results. If you want to see how pics look with the light, go to [...]. I highly recommend it.

I'm not a professional photographer. I am a glass artist who crafts and sells fused dichroic glass jewelry online. The EGO light has literally transformed my photography and since I've been using it I've had numerous compliments on the quality of the photos on my website. I have recommended this product to other crafters and artisans who need help with their product photography.
I'd be at a loss without it!

Nice table-top light for food photography. The light color is well-balanced for daylight, and reasonably (but not overly) bright. I'd like an extra couple f-stops, usually having to shoot at about 1/15 sec at f5.6 @ ISO 100. Assembly was a little tricky (easier with two people), but once that done, it's done. Would recommend.

I use this for webcasting and video streaming from home office. The light bounces off the wall and is wonderful for reading and illuminates camera subjects wonderfully.
