Others you might want to look at are

- Bowens QuadX

- Elinchrom Ranger w/ A (action) head

- ditto speedlights when you can turn off all the ambient light

As for "daylight robbery", you have to realize that in the US, PCB sells the Einsteins direct from factory.  In the UK and other countries, there's an additional layer of distribution.  The distributors buy at a minimal discount (I think it's $30/head or something insanely low like that because there's not much margin in direct sales products).

Then you guys in the UK have much higher taxes, import duties, etc.  The distributor has to have space in a warehouse to store the stuff, hire phone/support personnel (aka overhead).

Just to keep things in perspective...

Come over to visit the US and buy a few Einstein heads to bring back..that's a cheap way to do it too...
