This is my first ever Light Kit that I've put together and I must admit I'm positivly surprised by the whole concept and it was much easier to put together than I thought!
Some parts were however a bit challenging as it's very tight to get the cords under certain parts but the instructions, that you find online, are very clear on how to do it. And all in all it's worth it as the cords are fairly well hidden.
As mentioned, this is my first Light kit so can't compare to others but it took a bit over 1,5 hours to put together (while recording) and I'm very happy with the end result.
The kit comes in numbered bags that is packed in a protective plastic box within a nice looking exterior box. I thought it looked really nice and it felt like it was well protected during shipping.
