Great for working on my car
I agree with the reviews that state the stand is too flimsy. There are plastic pieces that will break without much effort. I mostly use the light detached from the stand - you can take it off with no issue. It is really great for working under my car or in the engine bay. Plenty of light. The two folding wing-light panels are great in that they hold position very well. The stand is not great, but the light itself is a winner for my use. I agree the cord is a bit short - i use an extension. I've owned it for a couple years, probably put 250 hours of not-gentle use on it - still working great.

Worth every pennie
LED lights have no problem lighting up most of my 20'x22' garage. Easy to assemble and operate.

Nice light at first
I bought this light last year. I may have used it for 10 hours I plugged it in the other day and 3/4 of the LED lights are not working. I will take it apart and see if I can fix it. When it works it works well but I can't spend $10 an hour on lights.

dull light no way its 2500 lumens
Was missing anti slip rubbers for legs. When plugged I plugged it in, in pitch black garage I could see but my t8 dual bulb ballast was brighter than the work light. Sad for $100

Husky work light
Bright light but poor quality on the construction. Falling apart after about 5 months. Not worth the money for a construction job.

    2 hour life span
    Bought this light to do some work in basement and attic. Reasonably bright. Nice adjustments with three panels. Price a little high. Stopped working after only two hours of use. Returned as defective for refund. Looking for something else

    Great light for the price
    While the stand and construction of this light are a bit on the cheap (flimsy) side, the light output is fantastic. I actually bought this to use in my photography studio and I love it. If it holds up, I will probably buy a couple more. I do wish it had a dimmer, however.

    Fantastic light
    The lamp is great but the stand lacks sufficient height for lamping ceilings while sanding mud or painting. Pity!

        COOL
        We were working in a basement without any outside light. The halogen work light we were using produced a lot of light but we couldn't tolerate the heat. After reading all the reviews I decided to take a chance and try these Husky LED work lights. Wow, what a difference! I've now purchased 2 sets and am completely satisfied. Buy them, try them and you'll be very glad you did!

          Bright light and easy to assemble. Works great on a job site. Not sure about durability yet but i think they will be fine.

            product failure
            I bought this light two years ago. The lighting was great for what was needed for household tasks. Recently, however, I used it one day and the next it wouldn't turn on. This light did not have many hours of use to warrant a product failure. It might be worthwhile to purchase something a bit more in price and have something more reliable. And the price of LED lights has dropped a lot in two years, so they.could make a better product based on customer comments.

            Excellent light for ocassional project.
            I have been using this light while I am painting my condominium. The light is bright and very flexable. It is excellent for an ocassional project. Not durable enough for commerical use.

            Good light but the rest is ultra cheap and seems fragile.
            The light works well and it's easier to place and adjust than typical / classic heavy hal lights. The pole clamps are indeed plastic and feel very cheap, as does the entire stand frankly. The light itself including its housing outclasses the stand they decided to put it on. I wouldn't consider the stand rugged or durable in any way. Treat the thing carefully and it'll probably last awhile. If it ever falls over it'll probably break immediately. And yes definitely the cord on the light is too short and indicates (to me, again) they just paired it with a cheap stand design without considering the cord length vs the stand max extension height. But, that's easy to solve obviously. I only recommend it due to the light itself.

            Nice Lighting option
            The light bar works well for illuminating walls and work areas. As a painter I appreciate the soft light and fact that the light does not heat up. The unit is strong and collapsible-- easy to move and seems pretty rugged. I am very satisfied with the purchase and the price.

              Light is Excellent; Tripod is WORTHLESS
              The LED work light is low on power load yet super-bright. It stays cool. But the tripod is made of super-thin pot metal and plastic. It's unstable and if it falls over it's toast. Mine was toppled at the widest stance by a 30 mph gust. The light is pretty durable though. If you buy this, toss the tripod. You're better off making your own out of sticks and rope!

                work light hinge
                The light is great, we use them in several places in our shop and when we install. They cast almost no shadow. One hinge broke and I spent about 10 minutes on the phone with a great service girl and she called my local store to have a new one ready for pick-up since there are no replacement parts. Thanks, HD!

                Excellent work light!
                Excellent very bright work light! I have several halogen work lamps but will replace them with this LED lamp as they are bright, light weight, cool to the touch and well made.

                Nice light not 2500 Lumens
                My halogens are going out and as I have some work to do in the crawl space, so I wanted a cool light. I also work in peoples dark garages as a remodeler and this light should work good to give me better light. I also bought 2 small LED work lights from everyone's favorite membership store at 2000 Lumens each. I did a side by side comparison and one 2000 Lumen light was twice as bright as this one. There is no way this light is 2500 Lumens. Some have said it has a flimsy stand, I disagree. It is much more sturdy than my previous Home Depot halogen light stands. I think if you know going in that at best it is 1500 L, then the quality of the product is good enough to purchase if you can get past the $100 price tag. I think it actually was labeled 1500 previously and they re-labeled, but forgot to increase the light output of the light.

                A Not To Bright Light
                I bought this LED light for interior house painting. The 2500 LED is under powered as a "work light" and the type of light does not look natural. I'll stick with halogen lights for natural looking colors and power to light up an area. Sincerely,

                5 ft. 2500 Lumen Multi Directional LED Work Light
                Good work light for confined and damp spaces requiring low operating temperature and overhead work. At 2500 lumen this is not the brightest work light, but very useful for adverse conditions like power washing or working near temperature sensitive material and the tripod works well for directing light at the overhead and keeping the light off the ground.

                Really useful
                I bought this light because my daughter has one at her house and it very useful when painting. That's what I will use it for among other things. It is light weight and easy to fold up and carry. My only complaint is that the cord is pretty short. If you are not right next to an outlet, you have to use an extension cord. Otherwise, great product with super bright light. The box was crumpled on one end but light was well padded and not damaged. (I noticed when I shopped around for this item, there were many on these for sale on Ebay, all in damaged boxes). The manufacturer just didn't package very well.

                Just ok, very light duty!
                Good power saving, can use many in just one outlet. Light bulbs went out after 3 months. Tripod is falling apart after 6 months. Bolts coming off, joints breaking. If you need to carry it around I would not recommend it. But for light use at home it should be a good product for the price.
