I paid $129.92. It was shipped with Amazon Prime and I received it in two days. I've only had the flash for a week but I'm impressed enough to write a review now. I may update it later as needed. I am using it with my Sony A55 camera and Sigma 18-250mm lens. This is the first review for this flash with the Sony mount. There are reviews for the Canon and Nikon mount but they do not reflect the interoperability of the flash with the Sony.

PROS:
1. Good price for what you are getting.
2. Full integration between the Sony and the flash when the flash is down and facing forward.
3. Faster flash shutter speeds (1/60, 1/80, 1/100, 1/125, 1/160) available when using PASM modes.
4. Simple and intuitive controls on the LCD for manual modes.
5. Red light assists the camera to focus in low light and even pitch black darkness and at great distances. I shot pictures of the fence in my back yard, at 50+ feet, on a moonless night and had perfect focus of the wood grain. The Sony's pop-up flash uses little bursts of white light to focus. The red light on this flash is steady and more subtle for a better experience by the photo subject. It casts something of a striped pattern so it focuses well even on low texture surfaces.
6. The Sony A55 is known for its fast focus and this flash definitely helps in low light situations. There is no lens hunting. It even focuses when I can't see my subject through the lens.
7. The motorized strobe head moves back and forth inside the flash housing as the lens zoom is adjusted from 18mm to 250mm. Although the documentation states the zoom is only between 24-85mm, my pictures are properly exposed at the full range of my lens. To avoid shadows in the two lower corners between 18-28mm, use the pull-out diffuser.

I bought this item, even after reading the other one star reviews. I figured that the price was right and the chances of getting another defective unit would be low. It got here on time. I read the extremely limited documentation, put the batteries in and turned it on. Nothing. I re-checked the directions and still nothing. As I removed it from my camera, I thought I heard it rattle. So I gave it the slightest of shakes. It indeed had something loose inside, yet the shaking seemed to rattle it into life. Against my better judgment, I decided to try to keep it and use it anyway. A few days later, it stopped working again, but this time it made a loud clicking sound that continued until I turned it off. Every attempt to turn in on again resulted in the same continuous clicking, and it no longer flashed. So I gave it another slight shake and heard the same internal rattle, but the clicking stopped and it it sprang back into life again. So I returned it. It is a shame to see a good name like Polaroid diminished like this. I am saying nothing against the seller and Amazon's support was sterling, as usual.

Update: I just replaced this flash with a Sony HVL-F43AM. The difference in price is substantial. However, the difference in the workmanship between the Polaroid and the Sony is night and day. Just lifting the Sony off the table is all that is needed to determine the far superior flash. It is a pleasure just opening the Sony's battery door, as unlike the Polaroid, it does not feel like it is going to fall off. And the enclosed documentation is a book compared to the small page that came with the Polaroid.

I like this flash because its lightweight and stores easy. Amazing quality, no lie. Anybody who leaves a negative review of this flash is obviously using it wrong.

UPDATE 8/17/2012 - Like an idiot, I dropped my flash 10 mins before a wedding I was scheduled to shoot (in June). I did make it through that experience thanks to a crafty tape job, but that's not why I'm giving this update. I want to take a moment to give MAJOR props to the seller who sold my flash -

DBROTH

DBROTH without question is the best storefront on Amazon. They are fast, attentive, and very VERY RELIABLE. I called them to simply see if they could fix the battery door compartment that I broke. DBROTH allowed me to exchange my item, provided I sent it back at my own expense. That was on Monday of this week. Done. As you'd have it, I was minding my own business when I was approached with an important last second assignment and deadline, and needed the flash back in hands by this coming Monday to complete it. Not only did they DBROTH follow-up promptly to my request, but I just got the flash back in my hands this morning!! With two days to spare!!

DBROTH is the best online seller I've ever dealt with!!

Thank you DBROTH!!!!

We'll be doing business again you can count on it :)

Everything about it is great! don't waste your money with the expensive sony flashes. This is pretty much just as good with a guide number of 45m. It does everything you need and does it amazing. Plus is actually looks good with the body of the nex 7. GET IT. All positive reviews are correct.

The unit worked for a grand total of about 5 minutes, then sputtered and died. Even when it did fire, it did not function as advertised. I packaged it for return within an hour of delivery, and will now have to postpone an assignment until I get my refund and can purchase the Sony HVL-F43AM. Please don't be fooled by the positive reviews like I was - maybe they lucked out and got decent units, but even at this price this flash is an expensive gamble!
