I second Eric, I have an Alien Bee light and want to add some more someday. My girlfriend's sister recently got married and photog used Alien Bees lights for the formals. I asked him how they held up and he says he uses them for weddings and portrait sessions and never had any problems.

On my light the polycarb cracked a little and they replaced the unit free of charge. Great customer service!
