Ok... Since my last thread failed, I'm going to see which of these kits you guys think would be better... They are cheap, and if none of them are good, please tell me!! Haha. Thanks for your help.

I'm looking at these:

And I'm open to any suggestions you all may have, too!
They're all cheapo hobby type stuff with limited power which will probably fall apart after a few months, if Elinchrome / Bowens kits are out of budget I would personally use speedlights from nik/canon or metz strobes for portrait lighting. H
Thanks. Do you think you could recommend any kind of starting set up? I'm open to spending a lot more money than that... I just want to get some lights to do promotional band photos. These could be during daylight or night time... I just want to give them that look where it really separates the band from the background... Thanks!
