    The Kodak bulk chemicals last a very long time when not diluted for use. Since they are liquid you can mix up small lots pretty easily. Kodak even tells you how much to use per liter of working solution. I've done this for a number of years, taking a 3.5 gallon kit and making up a liter at a time. The bulk chemicals seem to stay fresh even a year or more after breaking the seal.

    The SM kits are tuned for use in a small darkroom, as opposed to a production, machine processor, environment. I haven't tried them yet, but they seem to be a wise way to go.

    As detailed in many places on this forum, you really need a separate bleach and fixer for the best results on color film. Many kits use a blix, which does not fully clear out the silver. The kits work, but the results have definite quality problems for the processed film.
