How useful are reflective soft boxes?

It really comes down to what you like to shoot and if you want another tool. I really love umbrellas but most people describe umbrellas as light grenades dispersing light everywhere. There will be situations where the light going everywhere can be a problem in your image so a softbox will be helpful in controlling the light. You can also control the umbrella but now you would need some type of flag to block the light from going where you don't want it. I noticed that your particular cheetah softbox has the diffuser over the outside. In my opinion I would prefer one that is attached on the inside leaving a lip of material that helps you direct the light. In the present configuration it will behave a little more like your umbrella. As far as the interior material it really is up to you to try it and see if you like how it looks on your subject. The silver material is more specular meaning it will have more highlights than a white material. Also it seems you don't use a shoot through umbrella but a reflective umbrella which controls the light a little better than a shoot through. I have all three and use them as I see fit. I am not necessarily recommending this one because of the location of the diffusion material but, if you have a little G.A.S. and you want to try something new, go ahead and then study how this is different than your umbrella, conduct a few test shoots and see what you like and if will fit your style of photography. If you hate it sell it on ebay.

luckily, I have a local printer and they print whatever you need.

however, for volume I've been using Miller's or Mpix and they still print 8x10

Good luck.
