I purchased the Alzo 3000, with the stand and softbox for video production work. I shoot a lot of interview and corporate footage so I needed a sturdy, powerful and quiet light. I got that and more. I bought it on the recommendation of Caleb Pike and DSLRVideoShooter.com. Very happy with the light. The stand is sturdier than i expected and well constructed. I wish there was more metal on it than plastic, but it does the job. Knocked one star off the review because the light no longer includes the glass lens, however neither the website nor the information that comes with the light mention this. In fact, the information included with the light lists that it is included in the box. Caused some confusion when I couldn't find it so I ended up having to email and ask about it.
