Functions very well, only misses a shot once in a great while. Wonderful value for the price, I will be using this for years to come.

worth the price
Good entry level product, but cheaply made and it contains no instructions. Requires 2 AAA bateries in receiver before it will work, polarity is not marked. It has good range, but is a little flimsy for outside use

Did not work with my Canon Rebel T5. Small and compact, should be fine with other cameras.
It works great and solves setting your flashes off without having to rely on the flash from the camera itself. It seems not very durable in construction and even comes with a warning basically stating as much. I have had some problems with it firing off the flashes randomly, or when I am not taking pictures.
this thing is garbage, the range is 1/2 of that advertised, poor construction, and it broke on the first use, does not communicate with camera or monolights well at all. avoid this product!!!
Not good, button stock inside, weak construction
This product performs a simple task and performs it well. My flashes fired reliably and the range seemed as stated. Unit is well-built in spite of its reasonable price. [...]
Good inexpensive alternative to some of the more expensive solutions out there. There are the rare instances when the flash is not triggered (last shoot over 150 shots and it did not trigger the flash 2 times). Highly recommend!
There is no way to mount the unit on any modern camera with dedicated flash mountings. Will fit only the old universal flash mount, long since abandoned. Mfr. needs to make adapters so that the unit will fit on the flash shoes of modern digital cameras, even at extra cost. Has to hang off the camera and dangle by the sync cord. Not good. Otherwise a nice little inexpensive unit.
I'm pretty disapointed with the entire remote. I received it along with the rest of my equipment and got it all set up. Plugged it into my main light, set the channel and mounted the other part to the hot shoe of my camera. In order to get it to function correctly you need someone to hold it in place in order to get it to fire. It doens't have very good contact and it isn't really for the [$]. Its not worth the materials it's made of. I have never had anything to give me such a challenge as this small item. If I had known it was going to be this way I would have never ordered it to begin with. I will [...] find something of better quality.
