Default Beginner here, wanna buy my first e-kit.

Hi, so I'm in an apartment and I'm about to buy my first kit so an acoustic kit wouldn't exactly be a good idea, so I decided to get an e-kit. Now, I can't get an amazing one for a thousand bucks but a friend of my uncle's who plays drums recommended the Alesis DM7X Session Kit. It's 480 euros-ish new so the price is pretty good I guess, I mean I won't get anything good cheaper, there's the Alesis DM6 USB Kit but I've read reviews saying it's buggy on amazon, and also the Alesis DM Lite but that looks more like a toy. I also read something on an amazon review about I think the Alesis DM6 being the top seller so I don't know, what do you guys think?
It's 2 am here and I was just checking out some threads on this forum but I saw someone mention the Roland TD-4 but my budget is around 500 euros(which I know isn't a lot especially for e-drums but I've been only playing for around 3 months and I don't have that much), and also the DTXplorer, which I have no idea how much it is.

Well I looked around a bit more and apparently Alesis is known for not having the sturdiest kits, but my uncle's friend has been playing the DM7X for 5 years and is satisfied with it, and I trust my uncle(and his friend if he trusts him) so I'll give the DM7X Session a try. I guess it'll have a warranty or something and if something breaks or if it's something more major we can replace it or just take the kit back and find something else.

Let us know how it turns out. I'm in the market for an e-kit to use for practicing at home and I am looking at the DM7X (the 6-piece version) as well as the DM10. The DM10 is probably more than I need (or want to spend) right now but I'm a firm believer in getting the best equipment that I can afford at the time; it usually lasts longer and is more versatile in the long run.

Well I'm gonna but a Session kit(5 piece) but except for one less tom and cymbal it's not different, so I'll let post here after a few weeks I guess.
