I connect the cord between my Nikon D40 hot shoe to my Vivitar 285 or my SB-600. It works like it's supposed to.

Recently, I am the owner of used Novatron 440 Strobe lignting system. I use two Nikon Bodies with it; D700 has a pc cord spot on the body. But the D80 only has a hot shoe. The house to hot shoe cord was the only way I cOuld sync the D80 and the lighting system. The cord fits tightly into the hotshoe. With the cord off to the left side, out of the way. It works perfectly!!

Good quality built

Potentially dangerous piece of equipment

I recommend NOT using any household plug style cables such as this if you at all can avoid it. If you ever lay this unit on the ground unattended for a minute and a small child gets a hold of it and decides to plug it in a household socket. Well you can imagine it could cause some serious injury.

Far better than a PC connection

I bought this because I was having a lot of trouble with the PC connector for my studio lights -- it would get bent, lose connection, and then miss the shot (a common problem -- ask any pro, and notice the PC connector fix-it tools on the market). The hot shoe connection is far more reliable, and so even if you have a PC connector on your camera, this is better. The only weakness I see is that this hot shoe connector is a little stiff getting into place. But that's a relatively minor problem -- I'd much rather it be too stiff than too loose.
