Affordable alternatives are the:
Vivitar DF383 or,
Vivitar DF283,
Bower SFD926P,
Digital Concepts 918AF,
Digital Concepts 952AF,
Rokinon D870AF-P,
Rokinon D900AFZ-P,
Rokinon D980AFZ-P

*all made by Tumax for those companies.
I am pretty happy with my vivitar 383. Not the most well built Flash I suppose. the mount is plastic, so that concerns me for breakage and the battery door seems fragile. Overall it is really a cheap build, but I treat my gear well and it was enough cheaper I am willing to risk it. It seems to function well, being my first external flash, I am by no means an expert to judge its ability. overall i have been pleased with my purchase.

This flash is actually good as it is dedicated.
The build is good enough, not as cheap as it seems.
It is just about average considering they where built by only one company.
I also take good care of my equipment so I also happy with how well these work and about them working dedicated.
I can't complain and the price is right about affordable.
