  1. that looks like a good price,

    personally i wouldnt trust it though. You could get a SB24 or 26 or 28 for not too much more

    Those are brand new, and the sb24, sb26 and sb28 was used right? BTW, saw some flash at dealextreme.com too

    I just picked up a couple. Not bad. Definitely not built like the SB-2xs, but covered by Mpex for two years. In the last two months I've had a SB-25 and a SB-26 fail me. Bad luck I guess.

    The optical slave has a pretty good working distance and is pretty sensitive.
    Has the miniplug connection which holds much better than PC. Light and small with pretty good power.

    A rep at Mpex told me the first batch had a few QC issues that are resolved with this second batch. Good customer service there too.
