I have used the hilite for about 2 years- and I think it is great. The wife likes hikey portraits, and nothing could be easier. I actually have 2 of them- get the biggest one you can afford. I have never used it as a softbox, although it would certainly work. Setup is quick. I use 2 alienbee 800's, although one will work 2 give a better background. You do not need a lot of room, people can stand within a foot of the background and look great. Only issue is you will need to either light the floor or do some quick photoshop to get a white floor- I do a quick levels adjustment in photoshop. Before you use it remotely- make sure you can fold it back up. I can do it in a minute now- but I wrestled it for a time getting used to it. Quick, works well, folds up small. Downsides is it is expensive.
Works great for me
