You can't go wrong with the ABs. I just bought my 4th. Great lights at a very decent price. And I too now prefer the octabox for a main light.

As I have Travelites for sale all I'll say is that just remember, the AB800's are only 320 w/s. Even the 1600's are only 640w/s. The Travelite 750's are 750 w/s. And the modeling lights are 250-275 watts instead of 100-150 watts as they are on the AB's.

I'm not saying the AB's aren't good. Many use them with great results, and I have used them. It's just that you are comparing the AB800 and Travelite 750. I want to ensure that you know that the output is not the same.

I just purchased an Adorama Flashpoint 1820. Cheaper than the AB and more powerfull. I'm very impressed with it's construction and operation. Check them out as well.

those do look nice... and good price. One Travelite goes for 600.00, I got the kit with umbrela, stand and case for 670.00. Only good news my photos have improved 100% over my old strobes so im happy...and broke! Large low profile softbox makes all the diffrence in the world.
