This is a great deal, especially on the 200 Pro. Major differences between the AD200 and AD200 Pro:

1. Color stable mode on the Pro. Separate mode on the flash that narrows the variance in color across all power levels (5600K +- 100 degrees Kelvin).
2. Power range on the Pro goes down to 1/256th power in 1/10th stop increments (non Pro version goes to 1/128th in 1/3rd stop increments)
3. Mounting stand. The Pro has a friction ring stand attachment that allows you to position the flash in any angle. The Non-pro has a ratchet stand attachment that has notches. The friction ring on the Pro can have problems with very heavy attachments/modifiers and can creep down. Robert Hall on YouTube changed the ring to a rubber ring and this eliminates the problem, but won't be a big deal unless you have huge attachments. If you use a different bracket for modifiers anyway, it will have its own mounting solution.
4. Physically a little different. The Pro's screen is a little recessed behind a plastic lip which can help protect the screen against impacts from falling. The Non-pro doesn't have this. I had one of my Pro's tip over and slam on the back in high winds. The plastic lip is scratched to hell, but the screen is still pristine.

There are a few more minor differences, but those are the big ones. Neither one has a mount for modifiers (Bowens, Elinchrom, etc). You will need a bracket to use modifiers. For Bowens, you can get the S-Type bracket or the AD-B2 dual-head adapter.

If you don't have one of these already and are looking, I suggest going with the Pro over the original. I have 2 (soon to be 3) of the Pros and I'm happy with them.

SVIPER9 brings up all the differences...
VERY helpful for those needing the flash.
In my experience...
I use the Pro and the non-Pro. The SINGLE difference that almost makes it worth getting the Pro is the mount. The Pro has a pin that stops it from spinning/unscrewing, while the nonPro is just a screw mount and loosens and is bothersome. If $30 is a daily lunch ticket, get the Pro for sure. If the 1/256 power is important, that may also be a point, but otherwise, if $30 can be saved for something else, save it.

I use both, and the nonPro has not been a issue on a shoot. I have taken a few seconds more to get the nonPro to be in the right position on critical lighting shoots. But thats all.
I may use a thread locking glue on the threads and that would be solved(or another solution). They are both great, and the Pro is just better in refinements and use.
