I have a canon 430 ex ii... and before I got it, I was considering the yongnuo or the newer, but some of the reviews about it being dead after a month or two really scared me. At 40 bucks, I wouldn't consider this disposable...
Having a great time and visiting family are mutually exclusive.
Actually, started to consider the new yn560iii after reading about the problems with the TT560.
But, the previous two in the yn560 series also seem to have a lot of reviews claiming units died after month(s). Not really encouraging. Understand these aren't built up to the same quality, but even for the cheap price you'd expect them to at least be functional for longer than that, or you (almost) might as well just rent a Nikon/Canon flash.
EDIT: Not to say for sure any of them are bad buys because heck if I actually know what the failure rate is, but it's a little alarming to me. Anyone actually have warranty information on these products (TT560 seems... 3 months by the seller?) and how these companies are to deal with?
This is a great no-frills manual flash. I've had three of them for the past year. Battery life is more than adequate, and output is relatively high for a speedlight.
No reliability issues aside from one of them being DOA when I first bought them a year ago. The replacement, along with the two originals, have been perfect.
That said, this price is nothing special. I think I paid $36 or so when I bought them, and these routinely hover around the $40 mark. But really, what's a few bucks here and there if it means having to wait.
Go out and grab a few of these, and start having some fun with off-camera lighting. It makes photography so much more fun. (and 9 out of 10 people that claim to be natural light photogs because it is "better," really just don't know how to use flash)
