I've never heard of that brand before. They do have some YouTube videos, but you've probably already looked at those. Personally, I'd go with a more well known brand like Roland or Yamaha. Rolands are a little better, Yamahas are a little cheaper. But from what I saw online when I just looked, you can get a cheaper Roland or Yamaha for less than that Millenium set. With a brand like Roland or Yamaha, you know you're getting good quality too. Also, mesh heads are quieter than rubber. I've had both, and mesh is definitely quieter.
Check out the Roland TD-3 or TD-4. There's different models of both, with different pads and different prices. I'd personally buy Roland. But you could also check out the Yamaha DTX500k, DTX400k, or DTXplorer.

I play an Alesis DM8 USB. I bought it off ebay for like $450 and have played it consistently over 8 months and the only issue is that the tom pads have removed themselves from the casing. I just super glued 'em in place and the kit still works like a champ.

On a TD-3 can only add 1 cymbal or pad to what it already comes with. On a TD-4 you can add 1 or 2. I'm not sure on the Yamaha's, but you could do a little research and find out. Just find out how many inputs there are, see how many pads it already comes with, and then you'll know how many extra inputs it has.
