Never heard of them, and at that price there are other more well known kits like the Genesis available.

Wouldn't touch it, not even with a 13' light stand......

As Hawk said, look at the Genesis line or the ABs.

and if it breaks down in 6 months, what do you think service is like for a no-name brand? Granted the price is there, but I'd take reliability over price any day. As for all the extras, you can find them on ebay for pretty cheap also; build your own kit.

I am an AB owner and user. I like them, good value IMO. That said, I would take a look at the Genesis 200 (external link) line of lights. They seem to offer an excellent value at a price point that's hard to resist. Reports I've read all seem very positive.
