Firing the flash intermittently from only 12 ft away and at at times not working at all even when depressing the test button.

I went back and forth for a long time prior to choosing Skyports over PocketWizards. The primary reason - cost (half the cost to be precise). I typically purchase top-of-the-line products for my bread-and-butter gear (which would mean I should purchase the PocketWizards), but for most users in most scenarios, the Skyports are just as good, if not better (check out specs between the two) than the PocketWizards. The PocketWizards can trigger lights up to 1500 feet, but let's be realistic. How many of you have ever needed to trigger anything that far (I'm sure some of you have, but it's so rare that it hardly can be considered a true value add for the average user). Also, the Skyports are significantly smaller and doesn't get in the way like PocketWizards, and as far as general build quality is concerned, both brands feel somewhat cheap. I feel like radio triggers are in general overpriced for the technology that they utilize, so why not get the less overpriced "premium" brand.

BUT, if you are more interested in fashionable photography products or if you are a professional who really needs to stretch the limits of a trigger, go for the PockeWizards. They are the industry standard. Otherwise, save your money and spend it on more important things.

Also, like others have noted, the reason the first poster coulnd't sync at anything above 1/250th of a second is because his camera's top sync speed was probably 1/250th of a second (eg. my D200's top sync speed is 1/250th of a second).

I've used these now in a number of settings without a single issue. They work flawlessly every time. To set the scene, I rarely shoot in the same place twice and never once had a failure or problem with reception. I use these in conjunction with 580 & 430 speedlights and have added more receivers so that I can have a few more creative options with my lighting. I also like the lower profile of the transmitter as it sits on the hotshoe. I've used pocketwizards before and did not care for the transmitter sitting so high. I was constantly concerned about breaking it off.

Although you lose TTL while using these, it should not be a factor as shooting manual gives you absolute control of your lighting.

My only complaint are the batteries. The transmitter uses a watch-like battery & the receivers use a rechargeble internal battery. I would have preferred a bit more consistency but for the price, it was a no brainer over the pocket wizards.

Just adding that I also now use these in conjunction with Calumet Travelites (Bowens Rebranded). Every once in a while I'll even work in a speed light in addition if the set calls for it. Work like a charm...

I have had this item about a month. I use it with a Nikon D80 and a Nikon SB-25 strobe Flash. The item fire 10 out 10 times at 10ft - 60ft. I figured that would be enough for me, plus my batteries were low in my flash. I have had nothing but a great experience with this item since I purchased it. Its small, light, and very reliable. It was an excellent bag for the buck. Although with everything that is inexpensive something must be sacrificed here are what I considered small inconveniences:
Out of the box, I need 2 additional items. One, I needed a submini to miniphone adapter to connect with the PC cord. If your flash doesn't accept PC you have nothing to worry about, but read the list of items included and be sure what you need is there. Two, I needed a new battery for the transmitter the one that came with it was dead, purchase one prior to the arrival of your item its size is listed in the specification section. You won't find this battery at your local discount shopping centers; it must be purchased at the "If all else fails" electronic store we all are familiar with.
The channel switches are microscopic and hard to change by hand. There is no on / off LED for the transmitter, so I accidentally leave it on all the time. I just keep up a couple of spare batteries; still haven't had to change it yet. Other than that I am more than happy with my purchase.

I bought these skyports thinking they were the best solution on going wireless but trying to save money at the same time. I read up on quite a few reviews either through amazon and other online forums and didnt see much negativity so i decided to get them. But as im continuing to do shoots inside and outside, im starting to see how unreliable they are when i need them the most. For example, i was shooting a friends band at their show last night and they misfired 60% of the time leaving my hand and camera dangling in the air waiting for my flash to fire. Another example. I was at the local skatepark shooting on a quater pipe with my flash standing not much farther than 7-8 ft away and it they misfired at least 4 out of 20 tries. One last example is that they dont pick up when im shooting with my 70-300mm lens because theyre to far. If you literally have the money but your just trying to save the money, dont. Wireless' should not be such a problem that they are with me.

p.s. make sure that you get the right connection cable for your flash because the kit does not come with a connection cable for the canon 430 exii.
