HSS far less power with the flash, and doesn't work with manual or auto flash for instance.

How much power do you need?  That F42 flash of mine is really too much power much of the time.  I guess it all comes down to what you are using it for, how high you can let the ISO go, etc.  I don't think I've ever come up with a use for HSS, but I'm glad I have it, and hope to make better use of it one day.  I've seen some neat experimental photos with drop of water and such, and I think you'd need HSS for that.

I don't know what you mean about it not working with manual or auto flash.  I was probably set to fill-flash - is that what you meant?
