A heck of a value. Lights not really strong enough. Camera support is shaky. But is you take pix outside in sunlight, even shaky is good enough. The tent and backdrop are definitely worth the price of the whole set.

I agree with other people about the burning smell and the lamps being hard to adjust once they are on. but overall, i think you are getting what it's priced for. i use mine for taking photos of small accessories for my business and it doesn't beat the daylight but it still works well....i think. so far....

Love that the folding, compact case holds it all in a small amount of space - 17" x 17" x 2.5". Didn't come with instructions of any kind, so had to go back to this website to look at pix of item to figure out set-up.
The tent is easy to use in a number of configurations (though would also have liked a bw fabric background) and the tripod arm and stand are very useful. But those lights are horrible!!! I agree with previous postings - they get dangerously hot and I suspect prolonged use (more than 15 minutes) may start to melt the casing. They are top-heavy and tip very easily (broke one bulb in mere minutes due to tipping). The light's tripod legs retract into the casing and have to be pried out with pliers (easy enough to do, but why??).
All in all, I guess you get what you pay for. But I'm happy with the tent, tripod, stand and carrying case, so I'll substitute my own lighting and move, on as opposed to the bother and expense of returning it and starting over.

For the prices I suppose it's not bad.
Pros: The carrying case is very handy and makes moving it around a breeze. The camera stand is fairly easy to use and is adjustable. Having two different sheets (bluegrey) is nice and the lamps are nice and bright.
Cons: The lights themselves are pretty cheap. My stands actually came chipped and when I took it out of the plastic, a piece of plastic came off the light where you twist to tighten it. Nothing a little super glue wouldn't fix but still... Also the metal prongs tend to get stuck in the body of the lights so I may have to keep some pliers handy.

This is a good enough set up, but the greyblue background is not nearly as useful as a blackwhite one would be. It's good that it all folds up in a convenient case.
I do not like the flimsy lights though. They are cheaply made and top heavy. The bulbs get VERY hot and are heavier than the base, so there is a good chance they will certainly fall over and the bulb will blow, leaving you with trying to find an expensive and hard to find replacement. They get so hot, you can smell the plastic hood around them melting and burning and there is no way to reposition them after they get so hot because you cannot touch the top of them.
