Works with Nikon D7000
Purchased for a home studio, the unit plays well with a D7000. Cheaply constructed, and should be included with the higher end Flashpoint monolight kits for free. The manual is missing important information, like the battery replacement procedure. There's a screw hidden under a sticker. If you try to pry the unit apart without removing the hidden screw, you will break it. The flash controller works as advertised, so four stars. Full review with photos here:[@]

Good economical radio remote 110VAC only
while the description says "Receiver works off the AC power supplied to the monolight" it does not work off the 240 VAC supplied to my equipment, because it only works on 110VAC. That meant an unplanned addition of a stepdown transformer and a few more cables to trip over. A bit of a disappointment in the world of globalized products.

Has a range of about 3 inches. Replaced battery and followed all manufacture instructions and still could not get it to work in my small in home studio. Sending this hunk of junk back tomorrow. Guess I will have to suck it up and buy the pocket wizard
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 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.
