    Strength:

    1) The lightest flash you can find
    2) Very, very simple to operate
    3) Very reliable
    4) Fast set up times
    5) The flash bulb seems to last forever
    6) Fast recycle time
    7) Silent operation - no fan
    8) cheap to buy

    Weakness:

    1) Only full power or half power
    2) Modelling light is so unpowerfull that they are useless - I took out the modelling light bulb. Not worth the extra heat it produces.

    Dont be fooled by these lights small size and apparently low power - the power is more than enough to use for portraits or interiors or product shots. I find myself shooting at f8, even using the brollys and adding a diffuser. I dont want to shoot any higher than f8. I get around the issue of the full or half power by baffling the lights with a bit of extra baking paper to reduce the power. I used to have some 1600w lights and I found that even on the lowest setting, I could not get the power down low enough. The extra weight of the blocks was a total pain, and made shooting assigments without an assistant slow and tedious.
