    Seems like a decent price. The newest version of that kit is $600-$700 online.

    Here's a 440ws kit for $249 with three lights and no bids on e-bay.

    Just make sure it comes with all the cables that are proprietary, everything works correctly, and flashes. It should be a good set to get you going. 240ws is good for indoor work so as long as you're not planning on over powering a mid day sun while using two heads and modifiers, you should be fine.

    Also, do you know how pack and head systems work? What I mean is that the 240ws is split between all heads on the pack. Some people aren't aware of this.

And yes I know how the pack and head systems work, I have worked with some Dynalite systems before as well as some alienbees. just wanted to see if anyoe on here had any opinions before i went to take a look at it. Thanks for the reply

    If you think about it, check out used Speedotron gear. It seems more abundant on e-bay and you can get a good price for it.
