Good info already so I will just add this:

PWs are solid and reliable. Moreover, if you are thinking of being a pro do not waste your time or imperil your reputation with the marginal Chinese products flooding the market.

I have used the cheap stuff and I have used PWs. The PWs never let me down even over great distances that I need complete reliability.

One note on TTL flash off camera. You can adjust the flash from the camera ( a great advantage) but that is vital as you MUST adjust it as it is ALWAYS wonky. It will also change as subjects move in and out of the scene. With only a bit of experience you can set your flash and get great results the first time and obviate the need to adjust.
