The output is very noticeably brighter than the 1000 series, and they are physically a bit bigger. You can't help but squint your eyes at first when looking at them from 5-6 feet away. The color rendering (CRI) was also to my naked eyes significantly better, more white, less green. The case is a great design: sturdy, attractive, professional looking, and functional. The case just barely gets warm enough to know it's switched on by touch, staying cool enough that the LEDs should have no trouble lasting a very long time.
I had the opportunity to do some color balance tests with a Canon 20d camera. I'll try to post some images from the daylight balanced jpegs to amazon as product images. I was comparing them side by side with my compact fluorescent softbox that had two 45w and two 85w 5500k CFLs inside. They are about equivalent in color balance to the CFLs. The unfiltered LED 1200 was a bit less green than the CFLs, and with the included pink/magenta filter it shows up as very slightly pink instead of green. Neither were quite as white as the 580ex flash, but that's the price for the versatility of LEDs.
Light output was truly amazing. The CFL softbox used about 180 watts according to my kill a watt (rated 260w actual, or ~1200w tungsten), while the LED 1200 used only 69 watts (rated 72).Read more ›
Update (March 12, 2012): I have bought two of these lights and both of them have now failed in the same way. The circuit board appears to have four separate circuits that supply power to four banks of LED lights in the panel. The circuit board must be extremely cheaply made since I have had banks on each of my panels blow out. One of the panels does not turn on at all anymore. I know the LED's are fine, it's just the circuits that have blown. These lights are fantastic when they work, but their rate of failure makes them a very poor investment, especially with no warranty.

Don't buy. I was very excited about it the first time I used it but than it just dimmed out and kept flickering the whole time during my second shoot. Read more
I was excited to get this light, as I really needed the brightness and portability. I was first amazed that a $550 light did not come with any sort of stand. Read morePublished on September 27, 2011 by J. Stafford
