Arri H-3 Hybrid kit

Has anyone used the Arri h-3 kit? Or the LoCasters? I posted earlier about a need to convert a conference room for recording use.
Most of my shoots will be interview style and I am looking for a good alternative. I am used to using the Arri softbank kits which look great but man those things get hot. I can't find any good information on the LoCasters and I have found mixed reviews. I know they are small but do they pack a punch? Or am I better off just going with the softbank kit I'm used to?

Re: Arri H-3 Hybrid kit

The Arri Led lighs have great quality and colour, but the output is waaaay lacking. I'd compare it to a 60-100W incandescent bulb. It's useless for anything past 4 feet. I'd go with a lightpanels set up. They're the industry standard for a reason. Kino Flo lights would also be another very good option for high output, low heat, lighting. Avoid the locaster/broadcaster though.
