Buy this light!
Then two weeks after I received them, one just stopped working. The fixture had fried, and new light bulbs wouldn't work. Currently working on getting a replacement.
Overall: decent lighting at highway robbery prices!
Six months ago I switched to these lights instead and have been pretty happy. It's taken some playing around to figure out the right way to position them so I don't get too much glare off shiny objects like plates or glasses, but still get enough light for the right amount of shadows and brightness in my pictures. Overall it's been a pretty good experience.
The only thing I don't like at all is the construction of these lights. When they come you have to assemble them, which I found to be a bit tricky and the whole time I kept thinking how cheap the construction felt for how much they cost. Granted, they are MUCH cheaper than a lot of professional lighting equipment, but for the price I wasn't picturing something that had to be assembled or seems like it could be damaged so easily. Thankfully, six months later these have held up well even though I sometimes cart them to other locations to shoot, but I am a little bit nervous about how these will hold up 1 or 2 years down the road. If they do fail expect that I'll come back and update this review so if anything happens.
Sure, I have regular studio lighting equipment, but when I'm shooting food or a product, I don't want to have to set that up, then break it all down. At least when this Lowel EGO goes together it's easy to grab and use with little hassle. I found the light to be more than adequate and has a nice clean look to it. I will try to post a photo I took with it, side lit and using the bouncer that came with the set.
So far, I'm satisfied with this purchase
