It came in a brown box with minimal artwork, inside was bubble wrap bag with the ring light. It screwed on well and appears a good fit to the tripod base i purchased alongside. The light is fairly bright and it has 3 clour changes for diffrent effects along with other brightness levels, these are all accessible from the control switch in line. I powered mine with a charger pack and it worked perfectly. Im not sure if it will give off much effect in lighting on the tripod at a taller height but at lower levels to the items needing to be illuminated it works fine.
For the price this is a sturdy and usable item which will do what you need it to, i recommend it.
