Excerpt: I've only had these speedlites a couple of weeks. I can't speak to how durable they are or how long they will last. Right out of the box they worked. They were also easy to figure out to start shooting with in about 30 minutes.
Excerpt: These are a great value for the price. Simple to use and very affordable. If you are just getting into off camera lighting, this is a cost effective way to develop your skills before investing thousands of dollars into portable strobes.
Excerpt: I purchased this flash with the YN-560 TX Manual Flash Controller. The only thing this flash is missing is the ability to do 2nd curtain sync (Reserved for Canon speedlites or unique workarounds) and 1/160th of a sync speed is the most consistent speed to shoot at.
Excerpt: I own 5 of those and order a 6th one. 2 out of the 5 don't change the output power. The display does change from 1/1 to 1/128 but the actual intensity of the light doesn't. The 5th one that I ordered recently came in defective - In wireless mode it wasn't triggering most of the time.
Excerpt: This was one of the first speed lights I purchased. Read great things about them, and since it was manual only, I was very interested in it. I did have a canon 430 ex, which has been a mainstay, but needed a second flash. Used this speed light several times with no issue.
Excerpt: The only reason for removing 1 star is thatthis specific one came in defective - The wireless mode works once and then I need to change modes in order to get it to work again. But it is being replcaed under warranty. I own 5 of these flashes. They are pretty reliable and are built very strong.
