I'm not an expert in flash/lighting I must admit, but it looks like you'd be getting quite a lot for the money if that's your thing.

Both kits uses continuous lights. They are not very powerful. The shutter speed will be long. Fine If your are happy with use a tripod to shoot static objects or ask your model not to move between shots. I highly recommend you spend more money and get studio flash heads.

I would question the value. These aren't really studio lights at all. They are daylight balanced Tesco-type bulbs in a domestic light fitting on a stick.

The stands,backdrops and softboxes may not be the highest quality and I'd tread carefully; look at feedback, try to find reviews.

The first thing I would say is look at the seller's negative feedback. 41 in 12 months.
Secondly, the seller cannot spell Middlesex.
Caveat Emptor.
A modest studio set up, lighting only, with quality lights and electronics should cost about 300-400, don't waste your money on this.
(That's my opinion.)

Something like this. (I know that there is no backdrop, but that is something that you can economise on or build up gradually.)
