My only minor frustration is if the flashgun is in wireless mode, it won't fire from the hotshoe, so you have to remember to switch it between modes when going from off-camera to on-camera flash. Tiny little niggle, but can't see why it doesn't just respond to the hotshoe in all modes, to be honest.
Update May 2016: Just after a year of light intermittent use I've had two of these units malfunction whereby they fire on full power only with no repsonse to adjusting the power output. Hence they become very hot in use at this full power setting and one of them has ultimately fail to turn on at all after it gave off a burning smell.
Update Dec 2017: My third of these died. I have 3 of the YN560III's and had no problem with those but these IVs just seem to be of inferior quality, at least in terms of durability. They were good while they lasted...which wasn't really very long and I only lightly used them. They would probably have stopped working much sooner if I was regularly using them.
The controls are slightly more complex than the yn560iii but it's just like anything new with a minor learning curve. I find the YN560TX a little easier to use for changing settings on the remotes, but this product does make the 560TX unnecessary if you are on a tight budget. It fires fine in RX mode with the 560TX or 603 and has access to all 6 groups in both TX and RX modes. Range seems to be similar to others in this series (603, 560tx) and works fine in a mid sized reception hall (haven't tried it in a large hall). It is compatible with the newer yn605 which has group control, but I have not tested this. Output is as good as most other speedlights out there, although I did not test it precisely using a light meter. When in any slave mode (RX, S1, S2) an LED on the front flashes, I find this bit annoying in dark venues and cover it with a piece of black tape which significantly attenuates the brightness.
The battery compartment door seems pretty solid (this was an issue on some earlier Yongnuo speedlights). The 560iv has a port for an external battery pack that should fit Canon compatible packs. Like similar flashes, it has a pull out diffuser and bounce card. The PC port is a traditional threaded style. The head swivels (with detents, but no lock) to the right 90 degrees and to the left 180 degrees, it would be nice if it also swiveled to the right 180. Elevation is from about -5 degrees to 90. The shoe tightener is the screw down style Yongnuo has used for a long time, many people prefer the quick release flip type lock that Canon uses (doesn't matter too much to me). The flash does not have a USB port or obvious way to upgrade firmware. Size is similar to other full sized speedlights such as the 580ex-ii or SB900, and is exactly the same size as the YN560iii. The main display is back lit, but the buttons are not.
It comes packaged with a small stand like most other flashes in this price range or higher, as well as a decent quality pouch, and some instructions that while not great, are understandable.
This series (560iii, 560IV, 603, 605) is the best bang for the buck on the market right now (late 2014) for manual speedlights. The cost difference between the model iii and iv is minimal making the iii somewhat obsolete so if you are just putting together a new setup, I suggest going straight for the 560iv. Of the competition I considered, the Godox V850 has the advantage of battery life over this (and pretty much every other speedlight out there), but it requires an external RX dongle that falls off easily, doesn't have a built in transmitter, has poor remote range, and more a limited remote feature set than the 560TX or the 560IV in TX mode.
For a minimal investment one can have a complete on camera/off camera manual system (sans modifiers) that works quite reliably. And if you want to incorporate some monolights into your setup, the YN605 is a great option which enables you to selectivity enable/disable certain groups from remote.
I will try to answer any questions left in the comments. Like this review if it was helpful to you.
