Norman A400B-R reviews

A400B-R 400Ws One-Light PocketWizard Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dependable, versatile, and good value I've used a Norman 400B for 12 years and love it, so bought a second one from B&H incorporating the PocketWizard. Right there you save the cost of a new radio slave, making the value even better. I've had my old Norman 400B topple off a 15' high lightstand in a wind, and although the flash tube broke, the 400B pack took some good dents but still worked. This is an old-school workhorse and I appreciate that simplicity. Only drawbacks--there is no index mark on the locking flash head cord to help align it with the corresponding receptacle on the pack, and the battery pack is heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Norman strobe's is very reliable. I've been using 400B and 200B since 80's I still have the Norman 2000 power pack all flash tubes are still original. these are like war tank. old school but very reliable. Who knows maybe my great grand children might inherit all of these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quality control? Unit worked fine after wires left loose were attached to the battery connector. Seem like for the money spent Norman would have caught this on final inspection before they shipped this unit out.
