Third Party Flash....

I would appreciate any advice you could offer on Third Party lenses such as Yongnuo, Nissin, Sigma, etc. Can I save a few bucks buying third party, or get more for my money, or should I go with a Canon 430 EX II.

My situation:

I have a Canon T1i and I'm looking to purchase my first flash. I'm an amateur photographer so I won't be using the flash in any professional capacity. I'll be using the flash mainly to document family events, but as I get more comfortable using it I'll probably begin to experiment in using it different ways off camera.

Advice? Are third party flashes a good option or am I better off sticking with the Canon flashes?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Canon EOS 500D (EOS Rebel T1i / EOS Kiss X3)
