Rated 2 out of 5 by kenns Great - but quit working
I didn't use this flash much, but when I did, I really thought it did a great job. I was concerned about some stability ratings but given the connection felt I didn't have much choice for after market models, so I bought this one. Sadly, while I was on a major trip, the flash quit. Today, (two days after returning from my holiday) I found my receipt and learned that the warranty ran out 4 days ago. Just in case this is an easy fix, this is what it is doing on BOTH my NEX5N bodies: I firmly attach it and when the flash is raised, it the orange indicator light flashes, therefore not firing. If you have any ideas what it might be or have an idea of a repair cost (so I know if it's worth sending it in), I'd really appreciate hearing it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ska4mike Great...until it stopped working
The Flash decided to stop working in the middle of my sons first birthday party. Sad to say that until today I had nothing but positive things to say about the NEX series.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JuanL defective
unit stop charging after few weeks, annoying since i though the camera was broken and getting frustrated it just didn't allow me to take pictures at all. after i turned off the flash it worked, then put the stock flash and it worked but the HVLF20S does not work or allow to take pictures when the unit is on. in other words this broke after a few weeks. a lot of reviewers are experiencing the same thing here and on amazon. buyer beware
