If this is a factory second, I can't spot the defect.
If you've been looking for a flash and the price tag has been holding you back... buy this one! Works exactly as described and makes a nice kit for the trunk of your car should a winter emergency arise.
I've used one on several campouts and backpacking trips, I just never pulled the trigger on buying my own. The HUGE cost savings at Derailed prompted me to buy it. I ran it head to head with my buddy's flash and they work identical.
Don't be scared with "seconds" stigma... this is one for the gear bag.
