    Ya, exactly the same spec and $100 cheaper, so get from East Gear if you can wait.

    and also, what can three 120W lights do? is it bright enough ?
    As above description by SniperD ..

    Regarding 120W whether bright enough, well someone got to try it out and gives feedback the ... guess the shotting distance should not be more than 10m.

    If i keep 2 lights and sell off one light+stand/softbox at $200, anyone interested?
    U would needs one main light using softbox, one slave light using umbrella as reflector and background light if necessary, better to keep it ....

    Just went to Akira and had a look at the $599 setup. Not bad if you're considering doing product shots with the kit. I thought the lights looked familiar (similar to some other China-made studio lights) and asked the sales staff (who's from China btw) if the lights are OEM. He said yes, just repackaged under Akira brand-name. He wasn't willing to tell me the parent brand of the lights in China, but he was quite agitated when I mentioned 'yin yan' which is another brand of studio eqpt in China.

    Anyway I didn't get the lights in the end, they looked really lacklustre as compared to the Elinchrome kit. But of course, it is a >1k difference we're talking about here.
