The light is pleasant and even, it helps my skin look less flawed. I can operate the ring light with a power bank or plug it into my laptop. I like that the tripod part is adjustable in length. All adjustable parts (the angle of the ring light as well) can be fixed with screws, which takes a little time, but at least this way you can fix angles etc. more securely. I can also use it with my webcam. And yes, it creates that pretty ring in my iris. The structure itself is not too sturdy, but it does the job. I am always a little afraid that the tripod will fall over. Overall I am satisfied, I will be using the light for online classes and video calls, maybe the occasional video presentation, and it looks like it will be able to serve this purpose.
