    It's cheaper because it can't do as much as a SB-600. It works well as an OCF radio triggered speedlight.

    Your link shows the LP120 has been discontinued.
    Do you understand what the GN rating is telling you about speedlight power output?

    Look at the Vivitar 285HV: Vivitar | 285HV Flash | 233965 | B&H Photo Video if you're not going to start with a SB-600 (recommended)

    Yea, the LP120 has been replaced with the LP160.

    Depending on what you want, it is an excellent flash. It is a flash designed for strobist work, and is set up completely manually (unless they changed things significantly with the 160). If you want a manual flash, then this one is ace.

    If you want a flash to put on top of the camera to fire and forget, or use TTL of any kind, than this is not the flash for you.
