Shutterbug had a good article recently that introduced various radio triggers for flash units.

I'm looking for a transmitter / receiver set that is inexpensive, compact and lightweight, reliable, and versatile. I will only be using it occasionally, though I would like it to be expandable if I decide to add another receiver down the road sometime. It must have a PC connection to attach to the Nikon flash units.

I searched B&H, and tried to narrow it down to those sets that appear to be made for use with any hotshoe flash unit and are around 80-100 dollars US. More than one channel is an important feature.

Here is what I came up with:

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/654667-REG/Dot_Line_RS_RT03K_4CHS_RS_RT03K_4CHS_Wireless_4_Channel_Flash.html/BI/4775/KBID/5289/

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/607612-REG/Speedotron_23497_LED_4_Channel_Radio.html#specifications/BI/4775/KBID/5289/

Would like to hear from people who have used these; will also take other suggestions too.

Finally, are there caveats with these units, like max sync speed? I was hoping to sync up to 1/1000th sec with the D1x, but I don't know how much of a delay these remotes have and how that would work.
