They look quite similar to these. I bought a couple on a whim last year and their actually not that bad after I put osram tubes in them. The build quality is fairly low but the light output is a little higher than my 4x4 kinos, but not as soft, or wrappy (is that a word?) Fine for sitting in a grid in a studio but not very road worthy. I mostly use em' for lighting green screens. The dayflos may be better built but I'd guess the quality of light would be pretty much the same.

P.S. Calling them 1000w is a little bit of a dodgy, with 4x 55w biax tubes they are 220w, I know their theory is that they are equivalent to a 1k with a softbox but still...
