Deal Details

Found the SB-700 [radioshack.com]on the radioshack website for $249.99+ tax but it was out of stock. For comparison Amazon has it for $326 [amazon.com]

The YMMV comes from low stock in stores. Only 2 stores in 50 miles had it in stock Luckily for me it was the two closest stores to me.

The first store told me they hadn't seen one in a while. They looked in the back and couldn't find it. It was close to closing so I doubt they looked really hard.

The second store said the same thing. Said he didn't think they carried camera flashes. But the guy went in the back and came out with one. Happy to get a new flash for the price of a Refurbished.

Was it brand new? Or were there signs that it's been opened and put back in the box? I was about to buy a set of headphones that were on clearance, but upon inspection, it looked like it had obviously been used.

Absolutely brand new. The box wasn't cellophane wrapped, but everything inside was sealed and untouched.

Thank you O/P! Picked on up with Sonoma County that was NIB for 249.97 + tax. The person had to go to the stockroom to retrieve it.

I have seen these referenced a couple places. Have you used one, or what is your opinion on these flashes? Is this as good as the SB-700 or are the output/materials weaker than the Nikon flashes?

It is a comparable flash to the Nikon SB700 but it lacks command mode. If you are not planning on using multiple off camera flashes and controlling them from the main flash you will never notice. It has comparable output power. The only real downside is if you get a lemon with the yongnuos because customer support is lacking. If you are handy with a soldering iron though it is normally as simple as replacing the flash capacitor if it were to break which is very easy.

There were 3 in North Attleboro, MA this morning when I called. I got the last one (unused display model) when I showed up 30 minutes after I called. Thanks OP, great deal.
