    I don't see a brand on it, but it's set up right now. It came with a lot of Speedotron gear I bought a few years ago. Not a super-premium model but gives very pretty light.

    Well I guess that's all that matters. I've only ever used chimera and wafer so, I don't have that much experience but as far as every pro I've ever talked to who does people or product, they don't often buy cheap no-name boxes spare one... But he's an exception.

    I've owned this one for years, but I don't use it often; the pockets where the rods tuck into the front don't seem very heavy duty and I expect one day a rod will bust through. It's very handy for getting some big soft light under a low ceiling and the diffuser setup is well thought out - very even light. it was basically "free" and after 20 years with never trying an octo, it was a good intro to 'em. I've been surprised at how soft the light stays over distance - much nicer than an XL soft box and very space-efficient considering the size. Just wrapped a 30-person "group" shot across a week and it was just the thing.
