    Can't tell you about that particular set but I bought a pair in a kit for £125 about five years ago and they still work just fine.

    Thanks, I just a bit unsure about it as I don't want to be disappointed that it doesn't perform as I would like it, one thin in particular is that the radio trigger is sent to one strobe and the others are triggered by the first strobe,
    I know that the flash duration is only a fraction of the time the camera shutter is open but i am not sure about the reliability of the operation.

    Looking at them I was struck that they do not offer connectivity with either of Elinchrom's or Bowens' 'S'-fit reflectors. Some of the low cost mains flash units do, which increases their versatility. No spill-kills are provided for use with the units with umbrellas. Reflector fitting appears to be push-on but there is no indication what other reflectors are available and at what cost. It might be wise to also check the cost & availability of any needed replacement 75w 'peanut' modelling bulbs. Their terms and conditions appear to be a bit ominous, too.

    Thanks for your observations you raised some good points i didnt really think about the reflectors being just push on
