    Its okay

    0 3/5 Joseph W. Mccary "Joe" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Airbox Lights 450024 Mini Softbox with Eggcrate (Black) (Electronics) It was smaller than I thought it would be and much flatter too, not as deep as the picture shown. It does soften the light and that is good. They should sell it with some standoff mount as it is too big to fit on the camera as is. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 27, 2013

    Absolutely terrible

    0 1/5 Tyler Jordan - See all my reviews, January 5, 2010

    Similar experience: cheap build and hard to setup

    I purchased this softbox hoping for a good bargain, having used only small hotshoe-flash-mounted softboxes in the past. I read other reviews about problems setting up and found that cowboy studios has a series of videos on utube showing how to set things up. I watched the video and decided it shouldn't be too hard. As to reading instructions, it came with none so the video is really important.But in reality, the first time was a bit difficult. 2 of the holes that hold the bars have already crumbled away during the first setup. Once I got everything together, it seemed like a reasonably decent softbox. I'm afraid I didn't get to try it out because my kid came down with a cold.Given the damage sustained on the first setup, I find it hard to believe that this softbox will last more than 1 or 2 setups.I'll try the setup again, but something tells me that I'm going to wind up spending a bit more for a name-brand softbox and hope I have better... 2/5 SomeNYCGuy - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Waste of money!

    0 2/5 Elle McArthur "Elle" (Houston, TX) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) We could not even get it put together before it broke in two places. The ring LOOKS like metal, but it is plaster painted with metallic black paint. The plaster crumbles when you try to put the rods in place. The soft box is near impossible to assemble this way. It took three of us to stretch the fabric enough to get the rods aligned. We have bought other items from Cowboy Studios and the service is excellent. They are very friendly and helpful, but many of the items are not well-made. Very cheap materials. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 13, 2010
