Advice on an affordable macro ring flash?

My girlfriend is looking to get into macro photography and was curios if there are any good affordable macro ring flahes?

We found this one on ebay
Sunpak DSLR67 LED Macro Ring Light for Digital SLR Cameras
Anyone have any experience with this one? or can advise on a better one?

Thanks

I have that one. If you look around, you can find it cheaper than on Ebay, even if from the same seller. I got mine through Amazon from Cameta Camera.

Anyway, it does what it says, though it's not a flash. It's a light, which I prefer right now, because I get a better view of what my subject will look like in the photo. That said, it's not terribly powerful, so you have to have fairly decent light to start with. I'm glad I have it though, and I do use it.

If you want more power, I'd consider this one instead, though I have no experience with it:
