I've been using the Lowell Ego 2-Light Set for a few years now and all I can tell you is not to waste your money. Every time I set it up I promise myself I'll never use it again.

You'd be better off getting a light tent or an EZ Cube. They give better light diffusion anyway.

Setting up the Lowell Ego is a Royal Pain. Everything is made of cheap plastic. The "fin" that holds up the backdrop is made of clear plastic that is "scored" and will eventually break off from continuous folding and unfolding. It has a tendency to want to fold back, making the backdrop holder collapse in the middle of a shoot.

The hardest part is trying to fit the bulb sockets in the plastic holders inside the diffusers. You are supposed to reach in from the top of the diffuser, bend down two plastic holders, put the bulb sockets through the holes and secure them with little rubber caps. That works fine if you have four hands. And the rubber caps have a habit of coming off and shooting across the room before you can get the bulbs in to secure the entire assembly.

The diffuser panels are supposed to fit in slots in the bottom of the light socket assembly. However, they keep slipping out. It's not a big deal though, as the system still works fine, even if the diffusers are not seated correctly.

If you do finally get everything together, the Lowell Ego works OK. It's not great, but it does the job. You can get some nice photos with this setup. But it's not worth the effort for what they charge you.

If you like to torture yourself, then by all means buy this. If not, go for one of those cube diffuser tents.

This product has been poorly marketed in my opinion. If you're looking to do table top set-ups with these lights, just as the other reviewer says, there are other, superior options, so don't bother.

But if you buy the stands for them (a must!) they make great, simple lights for shooting indoor video. Things like interviews, or simple presentations, or low budget movies. They give off a good soft light, very little heat, and you can get daylight temperature bulbs to match the sunlight. So for indie filmmakers, or poor videographers shooting interviews who need something that isn't complete garbage, you could really get your money's worth. The only drawbacks here are the relatively low light output (though acceptable for most video), and they aren't conducive to repeated set-ups and tear downs - these aren't Arri HMI lights here that can take decades of abuse. But in the right situation, well worth the cost.

Bought this light set years ago and forgot to leave a review. Pretty easy to assemble and easy to use. Wish it was more compact - it takes up a lot of space on a table - but overall I'm pretty happy with it. It's not the most advanced or the most perfect lighting but it's better than regular household lighting and I've gotten some pretty professional looking results with it. if the price fits your budget, I think you'll be pleased with it.
