The flash and the camera link with each other very easily.

Martin, Southampton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use, all adjustments on back panel display mean you can see what the settings are. Swivel/tilt facility increases versatility, output is more than adequate for everyday use. Wireless setting for off camera use works well, unit seems well made and reasonably robust, battery life ( re-chargeable cells) is good. This is the second unit we have purchased - both my partner and I using Sony cameras - the first one being almost 12 months old.
Bad points:
Only the perennial Sony/Minolta problem of the unique mount making third party fittings hard to locate, the Sony range being fairly limited.

Mark, Dalgety Bay

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It seems a lot of money for a flash but it's a Sony, it's bulletproof and will last for years. Just remember to buy some high capacity batteries for it.
Bad points:
None really.
