Blown out after 100 flashes – Yongnuo YN560-II professional 2.0" LCD Universal Flash Speedlite Speedlight (4 x AA) Reviews

posted by junk3r43 on 12/23/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
It is very easy to user, much better than the first 560 that i already own. The LCD is very useful, you see the increments on the screen in 1/3 of a stop, not the LED increments from the mk I that you had to guess or you had to remember the exact power level for each incrementation.
Cons:
Beside 560 I and II , i also have RF-603 Yongnuo that are very good but with this 560 II i had a bad experience. At an event the flash , connected the RF-603, blew out without using it in that moment. I opened it when i arrived at home and i find out that a capacitor was blown out. Because you don't have warranty or it is diffcult to return it tu dx.com now i lost 75 $
Other:
I the near future i will buy another 2 pcs, hope that i don't burn them as well
Bottomline:
a very goof flash for the money
