    The difference for me was that the kit was a 5in1. Silver, gold, white, black, and a scrim. I haven't figured out the importance of a black "reflector" so I think 4in1 might have been a better description, but in sales more is better.

    That said the car window reflectors are a great place to start and see if you like using reflectors.
    A black "reflector" is quite valuable as a light control device. Say you had too much light bouncing in from the sides to get any form to the light. Pop out the black and put it on one side and all of a sudden you have some direction to the light.

    Gary Beasley is right, whenever you have to photograph white towels with a white or near white background, using a black reflector, will make it possible to see your subjects.

    If you don't they will merge with the background, also useful for portraiture and getting relief in a lined face.
