    They seem comparable to me. They are a little light in the power department but they should be enough to do head portraits and they are more than enough to do small product photography. They wouldn't be powerful enough to light 6 ft. softboxes at small taking apertures, I don't think. I have a 350ws monolight in my collection. I use it as a background light or hair light - usually with a hood or snoot. For main and fill with softboxes and umbrellas, I use 3 750ws units. I can handle any people photography with those. Get the umbrellas up as close as you can to the subject and you should be fine with either set.

    Norman, by the way, is a distinguished brand among pro level studio flash equipment makers. I doubt they make these units (probably imports) but at least the company will be serious about support and customer service.
