Has anyone used the cheaper radio slave 4 and has it worked out for you?

I've been using the Quantum 4i for about four years without any problems. Well, one problem. It's the same frequency as my wireless doorbell. It took me about a week to figure that one out. Now I just turn the doorbell off when shooting.

A friend of mine uses them. Every so often he gets a black frame (meaning the slave didn't work). I don't know if that always happened or its just a sign of age.

I am using a pair of Quantum Freewires. If you use Quantum Q-flashes then its a great radio slave. If not, and the Radio Slave 4 doesn't work for you then the Pocket Wizard Plus are also great radio slaves.

When I was shooting for a newspaper in Tennessee a few years back, we used Radio Slaves exclusively when capturing SEC basketball. We'd installed a set of White Lightnings up in the rafters of Thompson-Boling Arena and used the slave to trigger them. Never had a problem, except that the batteries seemed to run down fairly quickly. Or maybe it was just that long climb up the arena to the catwalk to replace the battery that made it seem like they exausted too fast ... lol

Anyway, a good product by my book.
