So far, I have used this light for a wedding, 2 product shoots, and about 3 portrait sessions. It's always on point. Great light. Super high build quality and great features. I wish it was easier to plug a Pocket Wizard into, but the optical slave is very sensitive so that's fine in most cases.As an assistant and student, I used Profoto, Elinchrom, Hensel, and Broncolor heads and honestly, if I didn't know what I had payed for this light, I would have thought it was just as expensive.

I actually prefer this light to more expensive ones because if it drops or breaks, its much easier to replace. I'm definately adding more to my set-up very soon.

Good but flaked out
Well, worked well while it lasted... started mis-firing on DC, then on AC, now barely fires at all.

Great Monolights for the money. The important thing is that it gets the job done. well built renders exelent lighting and well colored balanced so far so good. And yes I would buy these again and again. thankyou Adorama.
I have been using these lights for a year. Recently, I bought another 320m light for spotlighting certain areas on the model/background, and it works great. I have had no problem using these lights. They are reliable and sturdy.
This new model M has it all. I used White Lightenings for years but they broke a lot. Not this one. Runs cool also.
After shooting with nikon CLS on a once new d200 and 2 sb800 bouncing off umbrellas, I picked up 2 of these 320m and 2 glo medium soft boxes and I want to kick myself for not shooting with strobes from day 1. They are more responsive in getting those sharp popping images. I shoot a lot of glamour stuff and they are decent for the price. I picked up an impact powersync16 radio system, 1 trigger 2 receivers so I can trigger the sb-800 ' s and the 320m together and it works great. Also picked up a vello freewave wireless remote shutter release, so I don't have to hold the camera and take a selfie. Also picked up a 60 inch b&w umbella from adorama dirt cheap for 20 bucks, throws great light, but will need a 3rd light perhaps the 620m and some sort of portable power supply that can hold 3 strobes. Even tho I can mix the monolites with speedlite via radio triggers I want a little more power for a main light where I have the option to turn them down like I would most likely have to do with the 620m series, I feel. I will most likely still use the sb800 on outdoor shoots on the 60 inch umbrella just because it a lighter load carry.
I use this product in a home studio setting. I have 2 620's and 1 320. They all work great. For the price, I highly recommend.
I've been using this light for over 3 years now no problem what so ever..
I have three of these strobes now. I have never had any issues and they work great. After thousands of flashes I have never had a misfire. The stobe is light and has a quick recycle time. Add the battery pack and you get portable light that is cheaper than a speedlight. Even though this is only 150 watts it is enough power even for outdoor portraits. I have used this with a beauty dish, in full daylight, with the sun to the models back, and it was powerful enough to light the subject.
The light itself is great, the recycle time is fairly quick, I using it at half power and takes a little less than a second to to recharge. That being said don't expect to do and Fashion Photography with it, There is more than enough power to do Studio work.
Paired with a beauty dish this has become my go to monolight for portraits and headshots. I also attach it to an overhead boom and create unique toplit touches. Especially like the built in slave unit, when it becomes necessary in a three light situation. Light, portable, fast recycle. At this point I've not had any negative situations arise
Of the many choices for lighting portraits, the Beauty Dish offers a dramatic light that wraps around your subject's face, providing a classic look to your portrait photography.Read More
