    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.

    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.
