Harpenden GB
Compact and easily portable with 3 tripod mounts. Powerful enough for still life and studio work. Flexible programs for power and colour balance. Includes 3 filters.
Plastic lights cover is not a tight fit.

Carlisle GB
Compact, powerful on mains power (not like a Xenon discharge tube powerful, but still for LEDs they're great). Also great on battery power (high power NiMH or Li-ions only an their own recommended ones are not expensive). I use mine for a small still-life studio setup but they will be going outdoors with me in the not too distant. Simply very good, and for Clifton's price a good bargain.
I'd like to see Mk3 of these lights with an LCD (even touch screen) for the menus, or a remote with LCD screen, hover I don't doubt that would push the price up.

I'd a like a more detailed user manual.

Essex GB
A consistent on-camera light. Bright for its size, but it’s not a substitute for a speed-light flash gun.

Walton-on-Thames GB Professional sports glamour photographer
I am switching from flash to continues lighting when shooting modles on location. I required a light to give sparkle in the models eyes. This light is ideal, it's small, gives a nice round reflect in models eyes, and being able to adjust the output works very well.
The output is not great and the flash menu could be easier. You really need the Skyport transmitter to get the best out of the flash making it an expensive bit of kit for the power output. You can use a third party transmitter but then need to adjust the unit manually.

Durham GB
Love the option of constant light and flash, also with the HSS too.
Buttons and dials could maybe be a little better designed.
