These are low powered lights which are cheap. They do a reasonable job and have lots of nice attachments. For the average bread-and-butter shooting, these are fine. Shoot school photos, small products, or anything where a lot of power is not required.
Nor will these lights take any punishment. Knock it over and plan on buying a new one.
I have 4 of these for occasional portrait sessions. I shoot some low-income people who can't afford to go to a regular studio. I'll shoot 4 to 20 head and shoulder sittings or children sittings over about 6 hours, then put the studio away for a week or two. These lights work OK for this. One of the lights sometimes needs a direct sync cord since the built-in slave does not always function.
I recommend these for the beginning or basic photographer. They are cheap and you can't go wrong with them.
But if you want to shoot full length model's, large groups, Formal Bridals, full size commercial photography, etc., then you should go with something with more power. There are some 400 and 800 watt "Cowboy" lights here on Amazon which have caught my attention.
