I like this box. It's definitely very fast to setup and break down, but once in a while, like the another reviewer has mentioned, a few of these rods would not collapse correction when you engage the release mechanism on the back of the unit.

I use it mainly with the Godox Wistro AD360, and the quality of light from this combo is very pleasing. However, the fiberglass rods are not very durable. I broke 6 of mine after using this softbox for about 10 sessions. The good thing is that the box came with two extra rods, and the authorized distributor is quite responsive and can provide you with replacement rods for $5 each.

If you're planning to buy this, then I recommend looking up up Glow ParaPop 28 from Adorama. It's pretty much the same as this, but it has multiple mounting options, and you can expect pretty good warranty service from Adorama for the next 2 years, should you need to replace a few broken fiberglass rods.

Best speedlight modifier I've ever used (and it gets used a lot). wedding portraits, food, product, and anything I need to light quickly and easily. Even spread of light. Get it really close for maximum softness. Pro gear.

Pros:
Highly portable
Extremely fast setup
Dual diffusers (inner/outer)
Smooth and Even distribution of light

When you use this product, you'll quickly realize what a deal it actually is.

This has become my go-to softbox for location work AND most studio work (portraits)

Cons:
Wish they would release a larger version.

I would definitely buy this again...in fact I will!

There is a little trick I discovered that always works to close it down: put the open speedbox face down on the floor and push down a bit to flex the ribs while squeezing the 2 sets of release levers. I too had problems with the box not closing properly until I tried this. Works every time.
Great modifier on location and very quick to setup and breakdown.

The quality of this speed box diffuser is awesome! Once you initially put it together you can open or close it within seconds, which is great for on location shooting. The inside is silver with removable inner and outer white diffusing panels. So far I love this diffuser and look forward to the many beautiful portraits it will help me produce!

As a serious hobbyist photographer who has been shooting with off-camera flash for about a year, I was looking to add a soft box to my tool set. The Speedbox Diffuser-70 was recommended to me by a pro photographer friend who owns one of the smaller models. I have enjoyed using it for about two months now, mainly to shoot individual or small group portraits with family and friends.

There is little to criticize. It is surprisingly lightweight for a fairly large soft box. I can put it on a medium-duty light stand with a small boom without worrying that it will tip over. Yet it does not feel fragile. It is well constructed with a tough nylon housing and heavy stitching. The mounting bracket has a small amount of flex to it but does not feel flimsy. Two extra fiberglass rods were provided but I have not needed them. The locking mechanism that holds the diffuser in the "open" position is solid and setup is very fast. Thanks to the two diffuser panels (the outer one is removable), this diffuser produces soft, even light. There is no hot spot. It easily accommodates my flash units (a Photix Mitros and LumoPro LP180) with straightforward adjustment knobs on the mounting bracket.

My only minor complaint is that when setting up the diffuser the last few rods are under quite a bit of tension and can be a little hard to click into place.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Speedbox Diffuser-70 and plan to buy another one at some point.

So far I really like my "Speedbox Diffuser-70 - Professional 28" (28" x 27") Rigid Dodecagon Portable Softbox for Canon Flash Speedlite", I have only used it a few times but I have gotten some very nice photo's using it. Easy to set up, and take down, but the adapter that attaches the speedlite to the softbox, doesn't break down for storage which makes it difficult to get back into the carrying bag. I think it would benefit from this if only to make it more durable fro transit, but it's not a deal breaker.

I bought the Diffuser 40 a couple of months ago and when I saw how well it worked, I bought the 70. I put a Nikon 910 on the 70 and Nikon 600 on the 40 and together they throw beautiful, soft light. I hesitated at first because of the increased cost of the 70 but the size difference justifies the price increase. You can't beat the lightweight portability. There is a lot here for the money.

yes, the price is a bit higher, maybe much higher than other softboxes. but if you want a well designed, robust piece of equipment to add to your bag, this is a great addition. folds down to near nothing like an umbrella with it's own carrying case. I have this and the 60 as well and wish I had just gone with 2 70's. I've cycled through other low cost, looks to be ok crap and had to decide a few years back it's just gonna cost to have good stuff. If you're dabbling in the hobby, maybe consider something less, but this will hold up for consistent use from what I can tell so far.
