Pocketwizard announced the new Plus X transceiver. Looks quite good for $99. You can check it out on the B&H site or at Pocketwizard. There's also a brief review on the Strobist's blog.

I can't really find any burning desire to replace my old but trusty plus II.

For the price it looks good. Couldnt find anything but the spec on B&HPhoto PocketWizard X but that strobist blog has some good info. I might pick up a couple and see how they fare with the rest of my PW's.

I think if your wanting to get into off camera flash, these are perfect for you. They are simple and bare-bones. They come with that PW name that we all know and love. At a price tag of $99, how can you go wrong.

If you have PW 2's or 3's, why would you waste your money on them. Unless you need to replace a few trigger, I wouldn't bother. My old PW 2's have been working great for all the years that Ive owned them.

I see that Mark Wallace is going to have a webinar on the new PlusX. Details here if interested.

Figures. I just bought Plus IIIs.

Oh well; having the extra channels is handy in some situations and having groups is occasionally useful. C'est la vie.

I was only interested in upgrading from the Plus 2's to the 3's just for the group feature. I never got around to doing that though.

True, I still have IIs working along my new IIIs and soon some Xs.
Range and reliability, all I ever want now in a new low price package.

Looks like a budget model to compete with all the cheap ebay brands. Actually a good idea, take a reliable and trust brand name and make an affordable bare bones version that just works which is all most people really need. I use Microsync triggers because they're affordable, simple, compact and I can velcro them right onto my flash heads.

F-Stoppers has published a "mini-review" of the PlusX.

Got one today and it is just perfect for the studio. I like the glow of the channel number that tells you its on and what channel is selected.
Simple on/off switch and that is all.
I don't even really need any other channels in the studio but it is useful when on location.

Had this come out after the IIs I would have only these. I really don't need the other features of the III but I like the range and ease of use.

wouldn't cyber syncs do the same thing with paramount reliablity and way cheaper? and not considered a ebay item but from Paul C Buff which has a pretty good reputation? or is this simply am matter of have a " pocket wizard"

Can I integrate the Plus X with my Flex TT5's? What would I lose by doing so?

On my other post regarding the Sunpak/Vivitar with the Flex TT5, I noted that PW recommends this trigger as one that can trigger the two flashes mentioned remotely. Great price too compared to what I paid for the Flex!
