I needed a light kit and did not have that type of light kit money. So I got the Bayco 1000W Halogen Work Light and it works just as good. My last film project my teacher was happy with how well light my project was.
While the lights do meet my needs there are issues with the product, one being the stability of the unit when assembled and overall quality.
Other problems encountered is when the one foot that is adjustable is completely collapsed, the black nut that holds it must be taken off and the foot pulled out with pliers as it becomes stuck.
The other issues are with the bolts that hold the bar at the top, they are almost too short and can only grab about 4 threads to hold them tight, yes I can install longer bolts but.... why. They should come with longer bolts.
Also the lights can be tilted back but not forward enough to aim them at your work, again you can lower the unit but I see no advantage in being able to rotate them back but not forward.
Also the guards for the lights actually set between the glass and the front frame of the light, it has one screw to tighten down at the top, I can see someone over tightening that screw and breaking the glass.
All in all someone who is in a hurry may have problems with this unit and overlook some potential problems and damage it.
This item worked twice, was stored for a couple months, then never worked again. I replaced the bulbs (even though they looked fine) and it still did not work. I bypassed the switches, and it still did not work. This is the most disappointing piece of junk I have ever bought. Don't even think about it.
Needed this item in a hurry for a tailgate party. Worked great. Not as sturdy as the $100 dollar ones, but it works. I've used it three times so far without any issues.
Just what my son needed to work on items in his barn where the light is not so good.
Great item, did exactly what I needed.
Great for any project where additional lighting is needed.
The light is bright and does a great job illuminating the work area, unfortunately the heat this unit gives off makes working anywhere near it almost impossible. And that was what happened in the middle of Winter in my garage- I can only imagine how hot it would be in the Summer. Great light if you're not working close to it.
I would give this a negative rating but it isn't allowed so...this was the absolute worst light!!! It was broke when we opened the box, metal was bent so it could not be put together. Switch on the light was also broke. Ended up at Lowe's and bought a real light that actually works...hmmmmm, what a concept!!!!
