I've had these for about two years and I'm at the point where it's time to upgrade to a different brand, possibly Pocket Wizards. I shoot around 30 weddings a year and these have not held up. The transmitter is being pulled apart by the weight of the flash, and the external flash/receiver constantly is being triggered by something other than the transmitter. This wears down my batteries, and I miss shots while the external flash takes time to refresh. Very frustrating.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good for Beginners
Cons: Flimsy Construction, Poor Build Quality

I have been using the Phottix Strato radio flash triggers since the end of last year. They are the best choice I've found for a mid-price range radio trigger. These new Calumet triggers are the same trigger with the Calumet name on them. I just purchased a receiver from Calumet and have found it works flawlessly with the Phottix brand. The Phottix is slightly less expensive, but took three weeks to ship from Hong Kong and if I have warranty issues I'm sure it will be easier to deal with Calumet to get things resolved. The fact that I can use TTL for the on camera flash while firing slaves on manual is huge. These things fire every time. A great choice!
Pros: Easy to Use, Lightweight/Portable, Many Useful Features, Good for Experts, Superior Build Quality, Easy Setup, Solid Operation, Good for Beginners, inexpensive
