I've just bought 2 of these for an urgent job and for the most part I am pleased. They are easy to set-up (and surprisingly easy to pack away actually despite suggestions to the contrary), the quality of light output is good (yes they are double diffused so you may need to "up" your flash output to from what you may be used to and get them in close ) and the build quality seems good. Flash heads are held in place reasonably well too despite being just a push fit, so for me as a Canon 430/580 user there were no problems. Having the flash head outside of the box (the flash tube fires into the box via an aperture ) is also very useful.
Just a couple of minus points and observations to note : The hot-she bracket design means that the face of the I/R receiver on the flash sits close to the bracket and this tends to block the line of sight to and from the master which sometimes means that if using more than 1 in a master/slave set-up then the positioning can be picky to receive the signal (I have had 1 flash firing intermittently and turning the head sideways is not always practical. There is no tilt facility on the brackets so you may need to factor-in the cost of 1 a tilt-head for each unit, and (it hasn't happened yet but..) the fixing arrangement for the box head to the bracket while being very simple to attach/detach looks to me like the box could blow off completely in a small gust of wind (never likely to be a problem indoors).
All in all quite happy and they look like they will last a good few years.
