I have no experience with the product. It seems to me that the $200 price is too much of a fraction of the price of, e.g., the Alien Bees ring flash ($400). I can't imagine that the uniformity of light output of the Ray Flash is as good as that of a true ring flash.
It's an interesting product, but I'm too skeptical, I suppose. It's your choice, but I would save my pennies.

Looks like a clever idea if the light that comes from it is uniform the whole way around the ring. Probably not going to have as much light power as a true ring flash but I could see it working under certain conditions.
