This is my first post here.
I just picked up a Genesis 2 kit last night. Haven't had a chance to pop it yet, but initial impressions: it is a very robust kit for an entry level kit. In fact, it really is on the higher end of an entry level kit, akin to a prosumer kit, if you will.
The light stand is a very sturdy stand, telescoping to 10 feet. It is much beefier than the thin Impact stands that come with some kits. The twist knobs are substantial, and you don't get the impression that you'd strip the screw threads if you turn too hard.
The umbrella is a convertible 45" brolly. It feels stable and of decent material. It comes with a nice sheath to put it in.
Finally, the strobe head itself. Well made, nice form factor, solid build. Digital readout, push buttons, audible alerts. The modeling light and flash tubes are user replaceable. The strobe uses Elinchrom mounts. If you want to use softboxes you'd have to purchase a Speedring and softbox. They don't come together, unfortunately. You can us Calumet softboxes with it, as well.
So, MrChad, I think you'd have a very capable setup on your hands. In a small room you might have too much power on your hands. I was using two 100 watt-second strobes in softboxes turned down to about 1/2 and 1/4 power. Never full power, and I used a small bedroom for shooting. Then I only used one and had enough light spill onto my background. Now I have the 200 watt-second kit. I know I won't be using this at full power.
