KRK V88 Monitors good enough for a beginner?

I was out shopping for some nearfield monitors and tried out a few different sets in the showroom. The units on display were as follows.
1. Behringer truths
2. Emes Pink series
3. Dynaudio
4. Roland
5. Yamaha NS
6. KRK V88's
7. Alesis M1

I ended up buying the V88's because they apeared to be less coloured than the smaller monitors and better in the bottom end ( especially the Truths and Yamahas). Will these be sufficient for a small commercial studio setup later down the track or will I have to upgrade? Can these be used for mastering as well as mixing? Are KRK's well regarded in the industry?

Thanks guys.....
