    Not very much power and the flash tube seems to have a short lifespan. It would also appear that the bulbs are not user replaceable. So, when they go out, I guess you just throw them away?

    Flash Power :
    160w/s output


    Flash-tube Lifetime :
    Over 8,000 typical flashing

    As with most other things in photography, you get what you pay for. Lighting can be very expensive and it's definately an area where a lot of folks buy crap to save money, only to use them once or twice and then spend what they should've spent in the first place. Of course, for others, this may be enough to get them by and be very happy with it.
