This flash in question has a... shall we say... "dubious" reputation with the Strobist crowd...

If you're lookin for cheeeep, consider this:

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.
