The light works great, however these (and the other Husky LED Work Lights they offer) are extremely flimsy. I Have approximately 4 of these (and my partner also has 3 or 4), along with two of the twin-head units and one or two of the small single head units that don't come with a tripod. That little unit is probably my favorite. The Twin-Head unit brackets for the light heads tend to bend and flex whenever you try to move the heads around, never mind when/if it falls over (and we all know it happens). These Multi-Directional units do a fantastic job and being able to point the light where you need it is AWESOME, but as previously stated the side panels should fold in front of the big center one to protect it. I've had to throw away a few for various reasons. When they fall, there's about a 75% chance that one of the panels are breaking off. Out of the 7 or 8 combined that my partner and i have, 3 or 4 already have broken panels hanging off. The wires get pinched because of how terribly they ran them, so one has a dead panel. The wrecked wire was taped to render the rest of the light otherwise safe to use. Two of those units also have shattered glass, either from falling or from stuff hitting into them. It doesn't take much.. Overall, they get the job done and are far superior to any Halogen units i've ever had. That said, i'd much rather have paid another 20$ for a light that wouldn't break *WHEN* it falls (not if). Would i buy it again? Yes, i don't have much of a choice, unfortunately. That said, there are some major design flaws on these that Husky/Home Depot should address immediately, and should consider a recall on these.. they are just FAR too fragile for a *WORK* Light.

    No replacement parts!
    I was very happy with this light until it got knocked over (landing on carpeted floor) and snapped off one of the wings. Called Home Depot and they can’t source parts. The hinge that broke is molded plastic. I will try JB Weld. I’m certainly not going to throw away a $100 light. Very disappointed.

      This light has some serious quality issues. I never dropped or misused the light and it slowly just stopped working. Took a few seconds to come on at first and a year later, it just won't work at all. I only used it successfully 3-4 times for a couple hours each. Hardly used at all. I'm going to try and get my money back from Husky but that's probably going to be impossible.

          Great for small object photo studio
          I had to develop a small object photo studio that required a good 35mm camera/lens and a lot of clean, concentrated light in a tight area. I bought 3 of these and mounted them within 15 inches of each other. This lightning produced great photos of small objects.

            The light is ok. The power cord is to short and needs to be longer. Also, it was delivered and the packing was destroyed. Overall the light is adequate,

            Very bright without much heat. I like being able to direct the "wing" lights to light up more areas of a room while working.

              This is a good product if you want to cheap out with a short-term light source, or perhaps only have occasional need of extra lighting. That doesn't describe me. Had my lamp for about 18 months, and the LED lights had by now faded to the point where they are no longer useable. I had a mind to replace the LEDs with better quality ones, but in unscrewing the bolts from the case, I found that the LED panel is actually soldered to the wires, and the individual lamps look like they are part of the panel. So, the only answer appears to be to throw this out when it fades and buy a new one. Planned obsolescence at its finest. Unless of course, you hardly ever use it, then it will last longer.

                      This LED is as bright as the halogen work light that I have and it does not generate any of the heat. The directional capabilities is great.

                        Prefect jobsite light
                        You can't beat the quality for price with this one. This thing absolutely kills it with jobsite light performance. Zero heat unlike halogen lights which is a must for someone like myself that work in Arizona's also the clean LED lighting can really help improve quality of work when you can actually see what you're doing. Sturdy tripod stand and heavy duty cord are no joke. Definitely can't go wrong with this one.
