    I broke one of my receivers and went to order a replacement and saw they had new ones out, AND THEY USE AAA BATTERIES!!!! :bowdown:

    and as an added bonus they don't look nearly as ghetto

    needless to say $100 later and I have a trigger and 3 receivers on their way in the mail :o

    Are these any better at shielding noise from Canon flashes?

    Notes on compatibility:

    Cactus V4 does not work with V2s or V2;

    What are you losing out on by getting this as oppose to PWs?

    The receiver has an on/off switch, but the transmitter doesn't

    My v4 transmitter stop working. It ate up my last battery and died.

    (1) We accept return of defective item within 30 days of purchase;
    (2) Upon receiving the returned item, we would either send you a replacement or refund the item price to you;
    (3) The shipping cost of returned item would be borne by you and we will be responsible for the shipping cost of the replacement.

    Today is the 30th day :hsugh: Emailing them hope I can return these. :wtc:

    30 day warranty? That sucks. Doesnt give a good sense of reliability if that is all they'll back them.

    Granted I have no experience with them and not making any judgment, but that just seems pretty weak to only warrant them for a month.
