For about half the money you would pay for the Vivatar 285 HV you get a better quality flash with a built in optical slave. What could be better? I'm not 'strobist'. I will be using this as a hair or background light driven from by Alien Bee 800s.
I haven't found any issues. It works as described and seems well built.
Recharges pretty quickly. If you need one, just buy it.
If you are a strobist or need an extra manual flash this one is build quite well and should do the trick.
