This strobe is typically used for background, fill, or highlighting. It easily creates a wide-dispersion glow when used with the included gel set.

The dial seems to accurately work where on the lower end one the light strength dial seems useless. The lower end version of this light recharges much faster than this one does. If you are seeking to do more photography more rapidly, then consider even the cheap one as a disposable light. I would have expected the continuous light to stay light after a flash but doesn't leaving the studio dark if you are doing single light photography in a dark setting.
The Neewer 300 Studio Flash comes with a pretty length plug in wire and sync cord.
It doesn't come with any booklet manual but it does come with two printouts. One with information on the principal parts, warnings and precautions.
TRYING IT OUT:
I was able to connect and clamp the Neewer 300 Studio Flash on my light stand quite easily. You can easily tilt the light up and down.
Connected the light and on the back, there is a red switch in the middle to turn the modeling light on or off. The modeling light works like a charm and this will be quite important for me to use in darker areas. It's important to note that Neewer cautions for one not to use the modeling light for a long time because it may make the lamp deformed and can burn flammable accessories such as soft boxes.
So, not sure how long one would have it on...I had it on for 10 minutes and shut it off.
I used my Yongnou RF-603c flash trigger and connected it to the sync cord which is plugged in the strobe light and was able to take pictures right off the bat!
Similar to a flash, for my Canon T3i, I had to put it on a shutter speed of 1/200 and I shot closeup on an object with the light about 1.5 ft. away had to shoot at F22, anything less than that was too bright, even with the flash at a minimum. Used it on a test shoot and was able to test the power fuse and set the settings from minimum to max.
For those who don't have triggers, you can use the sync cord and it also detects via light sensor and can use it as a slave. The unit has a prevent pre-flash and it does beep whenever the flash is ready.
The Neewer 300W Studio Flash works great for its intended use. But it's not a light I would use for a long duration. For one, there is no A/C unit on it, there are a good number of warnings on the caution sheet that tell you that even unplugged, the unit contains considerable internal voltage.
Also, excessive heat can damage the unit, over frequent use of the flash should not be used more than six times per minute due to overheating and can result in damages for strobe casing and studio light.
The flash can be used at full power for 5 minutes continuously. Then it should be cooled down to 2 to 3 minutes. Overheating will occur if used continuously and there is no automatic shutdown.
Also, they warn to disconnect from power supply or outlet when not in use.
So, there are quite a bit of cautions included with this unit. Granted, one should apply common sense as these cautions are quite logical.
For my needs and for its price at $66, it's good enough to use the modeling lamp quickly but to use this as an extra accessory to my off camera flash. Mainly for its modeling light.
As for replacement of the bulbs, on the second page of the printout, it does show a picture of a person replacing the flash tube but it doesn't explain what they used to replace the flash tube or if there replacements. I get a feeling that this is a unit that one probably shouldn't mess around with or replace unless they are well-trained.
Overall, the Neewer 300W Studio Photographic Flash works very well, but it's for those who can use common sense and know the precautions of using this device and not use this studio flash for a long time. It's also a unit that heats up very quickly and with each use, I can feel the heat from a distance away, this light gets hot! Remember, no AC/Unit, so this studio flash can be dangerous for those who try to use it longer than what its intended for.
So, while this light will do for most photographers on a budget, spending more for Alien Bees or another brand may give you peace of mind if it comes with its' own AC unit and the device is well-protected. Also, the more you spend, the easier to get replacement bulbs.
I am using this device mostly for its modeling light and occasionally for taking photos with a lone flash on objects, but I would not use this near a model, possibly for an extra flash at a good distance but nothing closeup. While I trust myself in using it for quick shots or quick use of the modeling light, I personally don't trust the unit, especially if you have children or animals nearby.
But for those shooting photos on a tight budget, for those who need a starter light or those who want to use this as an addition to their pre-existing off camera flash, the unit works perfectly. If anything, just be careful and use common sense when using this device! Otherwise, someone can end up getting hurt or it causing some major damage because of its high heat.
