    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 Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    An Outstanding Value

    0 5/5 dankrecklow (Wisconsin, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro Softbox, 32" x 48" with Speedring for Alien Bees Strobe Light (Electronics) First let me say that I received the item in 3 days with standard free shipping with all parts intact in good condition. My expectations for this item were fairly high based on the reviews I found for other fotodiox softboxes. Simply put, this item exceeded my wildest expectations! For the price I paid, I am particularly impressed with the quality of the materials used.Initial assembly was quick, taking less than 10 minutes. I don't expect it to take more than 2 or 3 minutes in the future, but there weren't instructions and I was extremely cautious in putting it together. The softbox fit securely on my Alien Bee flash, and my initial test shots show fairly even lighting. I always wondered why softboxes were so expensive and I was seriously contemplating a d.i.y. build. This solved that for me. Amazon and fotodiox will definitely be another of my 'go to' sources for basic equipment. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 26, 2011
