I'm thinking of buying an V860N deal that includes a softbox, stand and Bowens mount. However, it comes with a X1N, rather than a X2N.

I'm not thinking about doing an elaborate setup, so I'm tempted to go with the deal, but one or two reviews state that the X1N can be unreliable, especially when used close to the speedlight - has anyone found this?

if so, is the X2N more reliable?

The X2 and XPro have a near mode which allows the triggers to work reliably within a metre or so of the light. The X1 lacks this and may misfire when very close to the light.
