I purchased my light kit for a curved 8ft tension fabric display. My online purchase was easy and my order shipped quickly. I did some quick testing immediately after receiving the kit. Plugged everything in and all was good, or so I thought. 3 days later during my show setup I plugged in my lights back into the battery and low and behold only one light was working? I quickly figured out it was the bulb after swapping back and forth between fixtures. 10 minutes of use and one of the bulbs was already dead. This is totally UNACCEPTABLE. Unfortunately there was very little I could do given it was the weekend (silicon is open M-F only). I went to the local home depot that evening to see if I could find a replacement LED bulb. I found up an LED bulb, but it was warm white and looked terrible next to the much whiter silicon bulb. The beam angle and brightness were also way off so it just looked awful mixing the 2 different bulbs together. So I ended up with one light for my 8ft wide display for the whole show, which was totally inadequate. Silicon did exchange the bulb and covered my shipping cost and the new bulb is working fine at the moment. This company clearly needs to improve on quality control.
Silicon Lightworks: Thank you for your feedback Carl. We are very sorry you had an issue with our LED bulb. Please understand we take quality control very seriously and test all of our products prior to shipping to our customers. In particular, we run all LED bulbs for 24 hours and test for brightness, color accuracy and current draw during this period. Unfortunately, some issues are not detectable during our testing and, on rare occasion, a bad bulb does slip through the cracks. For example, a bad solder joint that appears to be fine can eventually break down from vibration over time. We very much appreciate you giving the lights a second chance as we know you could have returned your light kit for a full refund. Again, our sincere apologies.
GOTTA LOVE THESE BANNER LIGHTS!
Working with Silicon Lightworks is great because of their fantastic customer service!!! Those Banner Light Kits are perfect to use at trade shows because they have nice white lights that illuminate my backdrop perfectly...and since they run on batteries, I avoid those sky-high trade show electrical costs every time I use them :)
I've bought several lights and batteries and they work very well. I've found it best to have one battery per light. I run two lights on one battery which cuts down on space, then is an easy switch after about 7 hours to finish the day.
Silicon Lightworks: This review was originally posted for our Mobile Power Center (MPC), and is included here as well because the purchased MPCs were included with an order of our CK2 Light Kit (Black).
Absolutely Will Buy More & Recommend to Friends!!!
Excellent product and Quality. Received it very fast. Is much brighter than I thought it would be. Highly recommend this product to all.
Lights are awesome
I am a vendor and I work outside selling jewelry. Portable decent lighting is a MUST. These well-exceeded my expectations. Four stars simply because the clamps do not fit two of 3 tables I own (The table is too thick, and it is a Lifetime, which is most commonly used amongst those in my circles). Otherwise, lights ROCK.
