JTL are disposable lights, make sure you can buy the flash tube and not have to replace the whole thing, we live and learn and we did that, not a good Idea

They are heavy and don't seem to have that well made feel to them. I am still looking at Dynalites. More expensive but...
Take a look at Quantums, you can pick them up used.

I still feel that the Alien Bee lights are the best buy in that price range.
Cheers,

I have and use JTL lights (3 versalight 360s) and a case with stands and a bunch of accessories. I had a modeling light go out during a dry run and found out later it was just loose. They are NOT hard core lights, They are not expected to handle daily use for years and years. They do light well and I have less than $600 TOTAL in my lighting, including three 4channel radio slaves. I have set up and shot with them perhaps a dozen times and have had no problems. As often as I use them, they are perfect.

I also use a pair of sb600s and the D200's commander mode.
