Not better, but certainly a better value.  The question is if it's worth the weight savings over a more powerful monolight or the 1-1.5 stops of light over a speedlight.  It falls in the middle with no TTL, but high speed synch.  I wonder if they could add TTL later...since they can communicate power levels to the light?

I'm tempted, but $600 bucks is some serious coin for something Chinese that hasn't been on the market very long.  Reliability is a big question mark.
