The pass through ETTL is a HUGE plus.. I do not have them but I may have to switch.
You know what, I thought so too, until I found a better way to do it. I have my flash on camera (as usual) and attach the trigger through the PC port. If you do it this way, make sure you get a locking PC cable - i got mine from flash zebra - and then find a way to secure it to your flash/camera. I use a small bungee cord to bungee it to my flash.
I actually like this way better now, even though it takes a few minutes to set up. I feel my flash is more secure on the hotshoe rather than a few inches up on a cheaper hotshoe.

Another Cactus V5 user here. I have so far been really happy with their performance.
When I had a problem with the triggers overheating, they told me they have fixed the problem and had mine replace no problem. I find they are great, and its really interesting to see them making silent improvements (fixed the battery door, solved the overheating problem, etc) without telling anyone. They are a stronger unit now than they were when they first were announced.
