Lighting advice wanted

I need some cool running, low power lighting (daylight balanced) with snoots for product photography. I need to be able to accurately control the brightness of the lights and how the light falls on a product. The effect I want to achieve is shown here (images at bottom of the page): Ebay link

Any suggestions?

Re: Lighting advice wanted

Try continous lights. They're much easier to adjust for product photography. You can easily adjust with barndoors, snoots etc.
