Mmm... not exactly. It'll do in a pinch, but there's a reason the other options exist.

Pro studio equipment is needlessly overpriced. Any industry equipment you buy, whether it's photography, film, television, will always be incredibly expensive. This is not typically because the product is worth such a price, but rather because the market is so niche.
When you use the correct bulbs, there is no need for the overly expensive extras. With standard hardware store lights, you can attatch gels, you can mount a bracket for barn doors (which you can make yourself with a foil, even), you can add a lightbox, you can set a rig for bounce umbrella lighting, you can even mount a shade and slide in a cookie for patterned light.
