Help with bicycle gear shifters

Hey guys,
I have a Giant road bike and I am wanting to change the gear shifters/brake levers. I have seen these on amazon
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shimano-EF-6...9236601&sr=1-1

and i am wondering why are they so cheap and if they are worth getting and how will I know if these are compatible with my bike

Thanks,
Elliott

Mine look exactly the same (3 and 8 for front and rear). Have worked good, survived few crashes without levers braking. Decent quality. Price is also decent. 22 pounds (discout from 40 pounds). How much should ordinary shifters cost?
