The first session shots are in.  I've replaced my regular soft box with this one!
 
Here are some examples.
 

 

 
Her idea, I like how the light carried evenly from our left to our right in the full scene space.
 

 
 
Portrait light

Hey Ron,

I'll go measure.   It feels in (working with it) to be similar, even smaller in feel to my previous box I switched from.
brb
 
Not easy to measure... holding a yard stick from front of front lip.  Along the side and trying to line up the rule to the back plate... I find my number changes 1 inch if I move my head left or right... so if I'm in error a bit - don't blame me... not a scientific measurement!  but looks like  27"  at most...  
 
I know I'm not right on, let me check the details on their website.
 
Says 26" deep.
 
48"W x 72"H x 26"D
 
Though my previous box had very good light quality, At 700.00+ with shipping, It was really hard to recommend to members who may be starting out and need a complete lighting system.  My search was to find a box that  "as good" of light quality that was more fair in price.  To boot, I found easier to assemble (by far) pack down and take on location, as well as cleaner color.  I use to have excessive yellow (warmth) which required that I reduce color temp and tint which made my whites very blue.  I don't have that with this box.  (I'm not sure why, my previous box was also silver inside, and I'm also using (So far) same mono light so same flash tube.)  strange, but  I'LL TAKE the improvement.
