    The operative phrase here is looks like. I suspect you'd be happy with these for a little while, but I wouldn't think these will hold up for very long. This is one of those areas where price is an indicator. Low cost light stands are usually just cheap light stands.

    That light stand is probably fine for a "novice". However I'm curious what you are going to do with them. You can get lightstands from BH for about 16 bucks each. Of course it doesn't come with that s**** little bag.

    Also, do you already have umbrella/flash-mount adapters?

    For a real novice I think the price is right. You can always buy better ones later.
