I've had b800s for years.  I shoot dance and when I use them I often have them fire 1500 to 3000 times in any single shoot.  Every time one of those flashes has begun to fail (they have never completely quit) I have sent them in and I don't think I have ever paid more than $35 to get them fixed and reconditioned.  They come back good as new.

Thank you, this is very good to know.

I just bought an Einstein and it feels better made than my B800s.

I wouldn't worry about durability or longevity - put that energy into making art!

This isn't for making art. This is for documenting art, so it's going to be high production. Generally I recommend using Brocolors but but even with those I've blown the caps off of their lower end packs a number of times. Before I recommend this cheaper product to someone else who does not have our budget, I want know that I'm not recommend something that can't handle several thousands of pops.

Thank you, again.
