This soft box kit is difficult to assemble and the build quality is not all that great. However if you plan on setting them up and leaving in your studio, it's not that bad of a buy. The stands are a bit flimsy and you will see a bit of bowing if you extend all the way. However it's comparatively cheap to the kits that are, no doubt, better made and twice the cost.
This set is extremely difficult to assemble. If you don't move around with your lights, it might be OK, but the design of the softbox struts as they attach to the light fixture is just terrible. After assembling two of the softboxes, I am sweating and my hands hurt. I am very disappointed with this purchase. For the amount being charged for this set, the setup should be better.
