3.0 out of 5 stars Useless stands., January 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fancierstudio FL9060S4 3800 Watt Softbox Video Lighting Kit Light Kit With Carrying Case (Electronics)
I knew when I bought these that the stand quality would not be great, but I wasn't expecting it to be as poor as it is. Upon my first use, I had them all sandbagged, but someone tripped over the stand causing the sandbag to come loose and the stand and lights went toppling over the back of a couch. The bulbs were in tact, but the stand pole bent to the point it couldn't be retracted into storage. I started trying to bend the pole back into place by using my knee and two hands... and with very little pressure, the pole snapped in half. Needless to say, after one use, the stand is useless. Luckily, I have quality stands ready to use, so this is not an issue. The light produced off this is sufficient and clean. The softbox assembly is a little tough, but once you learn to assemble one, it becomes easy. Overall, I wish there was a kit to purchase only the lamps, bulbs, and softboxes. The bag is nice, but I will likely keep my softbox/lamps assembled when transferring them. I wouldn't know if I could even return the stand to be replaced and I don't want to return the whole thing just for the stand, but it was very frustrating to have it break the day of recieving it.
