Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Great price, good power, works well with Canon units in wireless mode. Manual is comprehensive.
Cons:
Occasionally over exposes, it seems to struggle to bring it's power level down for close up work. Getting to all the settings without the user manual would be tricky as a number of button combos are needed for some settings, don't lose that user manual.
Other:
.
Bottomline:
You can buy 4 of these for the price of one similar unit from Canon. It has it's limitations but as a second, third, or forth flash this fills the need for additional lighting when needed. Will probably buy another.
