I have one of those heads and some of the less powerful ones. I have used them for product photography and portraits and they have worked flawlessly for the last 8 years so am pretty pleased with them. I would be careful with the soft box I got a similar one and it did not last very long at all, the poles would not stay in heir slots. I would advise getting the parts separately, I picked up used light stands for a better price than the cheep imported ones, look for a cheep softball that uses an umbrella type action the one I got 7 years ago is still fine. Umbrellas can also be picked up cheaply, think the ones I got were a couple of pounds each. The flash triggers in that kit don't work as well as the Youngono? 602/3's. The advantage of getting the bits separately is getting what you need as you need it, but the flash heads are decent especially for the money.
