Looks as if it is a very inexpensive starter solution. I can get it from Amazon for less than $100.

Here is another one, looks perhaps a little more durable but also a bit more money.

All comments welcomed. Thank you.

850 tungsten equivalent Watts wouldn't be very powerful for portraits if both lights were operating at that draw.  I have some hid lights for video that are pretty close (600w equivalent each) and with both unmodified I would have to be at ISO640 and 1/100 to stop down a little with a fast prime.  I'd prefer a yongnuo stand and a reflector or a pair of the least expensive flea market lights I could find, for about the same budget.

i would recommend against dealing with any company that flat out lies about how powerful their product is.
