Cool lights is a great company and they stand behind what they sell. Their stuff represents a good value for a very fair price.

That said, what you're considering for a "starter: light kit is actually pretty limited.

It's pretty much a "single person interview" kit.

There's nothing with punch for large areas. Nothing with an defined edge that you can cut and shape. And nothing that you can control beyond dimming.

Essentially, you're assembling a light kit that does one thing pretty well. Wash relatively soft light over a limited distance from three directions..

So, the kit you're talking about will be pretty decent for hotel room or office interviews, (presuming you add some kind of bounce fill and use the 600 for a background light) - but not very flexible for much else.

My 2 cents, anyway.
