Low quality materials and no durability. Will break easily.
on March 5, 2013
The umbrella skeletons are so weak, that they bent on their own after one week of keeping them open...mainly because they are made of the thinnest, cheapest metal (probably tin or nickel). The light bulbs fused and burnt out within an hour (I use a surge protector)..and i Mean ALL the light bulbs. The tripods are good. The stand strong..but the bar that connects the tripods, and on which you would hang your backdrops, is flimsy as hell. IF i could, i would use it as a Q-tip, because it bends so easily.
The case and the backdrops themselves are good. Freshly starched, clean and well packed...But seriously guys..get rid of those damn umbrella skeletons and get a better quality umbrella..I am looking at mine right now, and three of the points are broken, and the umbrella has lost its circular shape and looks like a punctured football.
I guess I got what I deserved for the price, and its not bad..for its price. HOWEVER, its longevity is questionable.
