5 of 5 Very Pleased with my Purchase May 2, 2015
Reviewer: Dymetra Pernell from Long Beach, CA United States  
My order arrived days before I expected, which was a pleasant surprise, I found the shadow boxes a bit tricky to assemble at first, but once I got the hang of it, they served me well. It's a great bargain, and something I'd recommend to any beginner such as myself.

4 of 5 Good Kit - Did the job March 6, 2015
Reviewer: LMM from Jacksonville, FL United States  
I do love the kit although the softboxes were not as accurately stitched as necessary and were a torrid fit. It took three of us to put the softboxes together because the wires would keep popping the velcro and the areas the poles went into were not as long as they should be according to the pictures. I did not disassemble them until after we finished shooting for the entire weekend. But it worked.
Rather than that the ability to turn each light on/off was a major plus. That made for a great lighting situation. The carrying case for the kit was not as sturdy and I will probably continue to use the boxes they arrived in to make sure they are not bent in travel. The stand is midlevel secure.
The kit is not my usual purchase but wanted to see who else was out there. I use Dayflo Lighting for kits and chromakey but Cowboy was about $200 less than them and I got muslin backdrops in three colors. I'm pleased and will continue to use this kit for travel. Perfect for indies and students.

4 of 5 Good except for lights September 4, 2013
Reviewer: eric boyle from haslet, TX United States  
I was overall satisfied with the lighting kit.  My only issue was some of the 45W CFL bulbs that came with the kits.  One bulb arrived broken, another failed after about 5 minutes of usage and another one failed after another 10 minutes later with a large puff of smoke and stink.  Unfortunately they do not warrant the bulbs (they say an 8,000 hour life on the box) and I didn't discover the broken bulb within the 7 day return window.  The rest of the equipment was good and worked as advertised.  The hair light requires pretty serious counterweighting, and I was concerned that the boom was not too stable, but it worked ok.

5 of 5 My first Photography equipment purchase experience November 17, 2012
Reviewer: ItsClearToMeVic from Glen Saint Mary, FL United States  
As a novice in the business of photography, I was looking for quality products and service.  With Cowboystudio I can stop looking, the packing was awesome as well as the equipment.  No shortcuts in the designed and I am recommending Cowboystudio as the website for all of your photography needs.

5 of 5 Great Value September 27, 2012
Reviewer: Robert Myers from Lancaster, CA United States  
I read all the reviews on Amazon. Some were fair and some pretty picky. There are no doubt better quality products out there but the value on this set up is excellent. I checked out the YouTube videos ahead of time so my assembly went smoothly. The assembly of the soft boxes is the trickiest as you feel like you're going to break something. I do plan to be mobile with this set up so I'm planning to keep my softboxes in tact to alleviate the assembly issue. I do have a SUV with enough space to haul them fully assembled. Bottom line... great product for the price.

5 of 5 Let There Be Light!! June 27, 2012
Reviewer: Carl Hataway from Cibolo, TX United States  
Ordered the 2275 watt studio lighting softbox video boom light kit upon arrival and unpacking there were so many pieces I thought, "OH BOY!" but when I referred to the YouTube instructional video it all came together and I am impressed! I own a video production company in San Antonio, TX and normally don't need a lighting kit of this kind but an upcoming job is going to require it and I'm glad I discovered Cowboy Studios right in my back yard . . . we will be seeing more of each other!! Thank You for quality merchandise and quality personnel.
