A few years ago I bought a similar item from a well known very large DIY store, used it for a small job and it went on the shelf. I took it out of the box last week to use it again and after a few minutes it went bang, took out all of the house electrics. Diagnosis, its had its last revolution as the motor has burned out.
So I bought the Dremel 4000 as a replacement.. wow what a difference, it feels much more solid, the motor is much more powerful and its simple to use.
As others say the instructions are a bit lacking but with a bit of knowledge its not difficult to work out what does what.
The variation in speed is good and I like the chuck locking system.

The only reason for not giving the fifth star is the price.
The cord works fine and I have tried it with a master flash off camera also triggering two slaves. The eTTL facility works fine.
The one thing that is not clear in any of the write ups or photos, is that does it have a mount to attach to a stand. The answer is yes it does have a 1/4 inch threaded hole to attach to a stand with that thread.
The camera end has a clamp which slides across to lock the device onto the camera connector.
Im pleased with it, but its very expensive at Ģ60+ and it has made in China stamped on the box.
Like previous reviews which I agree with, it is really very light weight. This is OK for the odd family shot but not for anything serious.
The free background is terrible but it is free !!
I treat it with respect as the stands easily bend when fully extended.
It will support the weight of a 2.8m paper roll, or bed sheet etc, but you need to watch the stands and try and keep them straightish.
I got what I expected and Im happy at the price, but don't expect it to be too robust.
