Great for the price

I purchased this received to work with a previously purchased transmitter. Although they are the same brand and model, they are a different product, and will not work together. Be careful, and purchase only if you are buying the complete set.

Use two with pair of Adorama "Flashpoint Budget Studio Monolight Flash, 300 Watt Seconds" to complete the "budget" studio lighting kit without spending more for the radios than for the lights. ++Easy to setup, no interference (so far) from other radios/sources, only used with camera ~20ft from lights (so I don't know about the 65ft rating). --One of my two transmitters stopped working via the hot-shoe, still works via the PC-cable; of course, I only need one transmitter for the two receivers.
Just plug and play.
Easy to operate but would not recommend using this with more than 1 photographer using the same remote control. They do interfere with each other. Would buy again even when on different channels.
I use this product for Portraits, Weddings, Quinceaneras,Little league, Karate Demos, Grank kids football, and it allows me to photograph right there in the park. Along with my Flashpoint monolights and power battery pack it is plain and simple Awsome!!!! Got it last week, have shot over 600 shots and missifired once....the moonlight was OFF!! Go figure!! Doesn't get any better than this. Worth the price and much satisfied with quality and results.
I use this with a DG600 monolight. It's been completely reliable but if I angle the light up at all the power cord from the trigger tends to work itself loose and shut down the light. I ended up wrapping a couple layers of electrical tape around the plug.
I took a chance and glad I did. Fires immediately; no lag time. I use with Flashpoint 320Ms. So far it is reliable and I will continue to use. Best bang for the buck. No TTL, manual only but no problem for me, I always use flash meter to get the light just right. If you are on a budget you can't beat them, but I find these are a great substitute for more expensive brands. They are not built real sturdy but I purchased three sets in case of any failure. So far no issues. I plan on buying the DC version too. Works great in studio and out doors as well. Very good distance.
Works great on controling the light and syncs with white balance. Portraits look amazing and light effects are spot on.
I had bought the 4 channel driven on price aline... Don't do iy I know have 2 - 8 Channel and they work fine, I have had to replace bulbs ounce. and they work fine.
I was skeptical at first about using this product because I had been using a remote infrared trigger for so long. I bought this and I love it. It fires fast there is no lag with it like the other triggers i have used.. I no longer have to worry about missing important shots.
I bought this item to go along with a new strobe and did not want to be tethered by any wires, so a radio trigger was an absolute must. So far the ease and convenience of this item has been wonderful.
