    Starts smoking if used under studio conditions

    I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees). Since these are small and cheap - I figured that I could keep them in my vehicle for some impromptu shoots.I set up one of the NEEWER 300W Studio Photographic Strobe/Flash units to do some testing in the studio. I set it up with an umbrella - with the light aimed upwards at about a 45-degree angle (so that any heat from the modeling lamp would rise away from the light).After just 2 hours - it started to smoke. I suspect that one of the capacitors overheated and melted.Afterwards - I re-read the instructions which indicate that you can only use the flash a couple minutes at a time, followed by 5 minutes of non-use.That certainly is not something that is very useful for a studio shooting situation.I'm glad that I didn't spend too much on these, and since they are cheap, I am going to tear one apart to see if there is a way to mount some kind of... 2/5 James in MPLS - See all my reviews I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees).

    Solid compact flash

    I have to say this light was more than I was expecting for the money. I have shot many years as a professional doing both commercial and portrait photography and was suprised at the performance of this light for the money. While I do not shoot for a living anymore I wanted lights that were portable and could be used for portraiture. At 300 watt seconds it is more than enough power for portraiture even with softboxes. What surprised me the most about this light when I first saw it was its small size - about the size of a one pund coffee can but a little longer. It is smaller than it looks in the pictures due to the fact that the buttons are small, but very usable. How much light does it put out, well with ISO 200 I had a good exposure at f11 @ 16ft using it direct with its built in reflector, this calculates to a guide number of 88 for ISO 100 in feet. The light was even and covered the field of view for a 28mm equivalent lens. It has continuous modeling and flash output from... 5/5 Honest Shopper (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I have to say this light was more than I was expecting for the money.

    You can't go wrong at the price

    At $69, this unit is easily 1/3 the price of other similarly-rated monolights. That in itself makes it a great option if you want to get your feet wet with monolight usage. The light works as you would expect and produces plenty of light. I can't comment on how long it will last, and I don't even know if you can replace the bulbs, but I've taken it out 3 times so far, and shot about 150 shots with it without problems.The recycle time is very short, and at full power seems within specs at maybe just below 3 seconds.The power range doesn't seem very wide. At it's lowest power setting it's still plenty bright. You may have to back it up manually from the subject, or bounce it off an umbrella.There is no auto-dump setting, meaning that when you lower the power you will need to hit the test button to dump the power.The beep that indicates it's ready is a bit loud, and can't be turned off. That means I can't play with it while everyone... 5/5 SomeNYCGuy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) At $69, this unit is easily 1/3 the price of other similarly-rated monolights.

    two years later...still very happy

    Before you read the review, This is for the SW-400 monolight. Looks like Amazon has combined it with other models and I can't speak for those. I've only used the Menik SW-400 model. I'd like to point out that many of Cowboystudio's products contain five-star reviews written by a ringers - probably the vendor herself. If you look at other reviews written by these users you will notice that all their reviews are for Cowboystudio products, all are glowing 5-star reviews, and the "story" in the reviews are completely inconsistent with each other. While this practice doesn't violate Amazon's policies, it is unethical and misleading. While looking at other Cowboystudio products I have discovered at least two such users with about 30 or so reviews, all for Cowboystudio products, all 5-stars, all absolutely ecstatic about their purchase, and all with inconsistent stories - in one the reviewer claims to be an experienced semi-pro, while in another a first-time photographer.

    Best flash for the money

    I am a commercial & editorial photographer in Colorado and just purchased this flash because my lumedynes are on their last leg and my calumet travelite 750's are getting long in the tooth. I was going to switch to AlienBee 1600's but After reading all the positive reviews and because they have a Bowens mount that should work with my travelite accessories, I decided to give these a try. I am very impressed by the flash, it is so useful to have the AC/DC option which I have already used twice in the 3 days Ive owned the flash. The build quality is very good almost as nice as the calumets travelite's and about the same as the Alien Bee's and better than the Photogenic StudioMax ac/dc strobes. They are pretty light for their power, though they are the same physical size as the calumet travelite 750's they are much lighter, though not as light as the AlienBees 1600. They recycle very quickly at full power on ac mode and about twice as long on DC mode. The audible beep is very... 5/5 Amazon Customer (Colorado) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Fantastic Value and build quality but not 400 w/s

    I was doing research on trying to find an inexpensive alternative for a strobe that we would use on a college campus in the photo dept. Budget is always a concern and I wanted an inexpensive light that would serve us for head shots, more serious environmental portraits, occasional product shoots, and whatever else comes up.I bought this after reading many reviews and some guy that blogged about it. I found the light to be everything that was advertised. I was looking at Alien Bees as an alternative but the big drawback for me on all their stuff is their build construction as it pertains to how the speed rings attach to the front of the units. You can't use a very large light bank with any WL or AB product as if it's too heavy (or windy) the bank will tear right off the front of the strobe, sometimes taking with it the flashtube and modeling light.These are built right with all metal hardware where it connects to the stand, and it uses a standard Bowens... 4/5 Patrick M.
