Any tips if I should stay with canon only or to give a chance to YN product?

The price is amazing, if it performs great too it will be a win-win situation for sure

My 565 performs great for me. I love it. I'm thinking of selling my 2 month old 580EXII to fund a couple more of these as I won't need the Master capabilities and HSS.

the nikon sb-28 is another low price option that works fantastic as well! i own one and use it either tethered or as a slave with an affordable SYK-3 Wireless Optical Slave Trigger for Hot Shoe Flash

I also have 2 560's for about a year now. They have worked awesome and I've never had an issue at all! I highly recommend them. Now, I just need to get a 565 and I'm good to go!

The same can be said for canon products as well. Dealing with electronics there will always be a bad seed. I have read a few threads about the 580EX ll going bad in a short period. YN offers a 1 year warranty like every other company.

Looking at getting some 560s soon. Are there other brands or models that I should look at? I use external flash units exclusively off camera, and I shoot in manual, and control flash output manually. I never intend to use any kind of TTL, ETTL, etc.
Thanks for any help, advice etc.

you'll be hard pressed to find a better value in a manual flash than this.
