I've had the SU-800 for a week and it seems to operate fine so far. However, I took away one star because Nikon is so cheap that they ship this unit without a battery. The battery is not a common one so it can only be obtained in a photo shop.
I've had the SU-800 unit for many years and have used it under a variety of conditions.Due to its requirement to have line of sight with my SB-900 and SB-910 speedlights, it was somewhat limited.
This is a niche flash accessory. It adds another dimension to your creative capabilities with your Nikon DSLR. It allows you to remotely activate other Nikon flashes and use their creative lighting system, or connect by cable to conventional commercial flashes.
Fantastic command are unit for SB R200s used in conjunction with R1C1 Flash System.
I wasn't sure this unit was what I needed but it turned out to be perfect for getting both an SB 800 and SB 910 speed light to work with my D7100. I couldn't get both to fire using the camera as commander and right out of the box the SU 800 solved my problem.
Works flawlessly for my uses.
I bought this unit to control flash units used when doing macro photography. But this is great for controlling off-camera flash unit for portraiture as well. The setup works well with my Nikon D5500 and my two SB-500 flash units.

I had tried another speedlight commander from Vello which only worked for about 30 shots and failed. Thought I could save some money but was disappointed. Had purchased the Nikon R-1 flash system and used the commander mode in camera which worked great.
I just tried the Su800 prior to my coming up trip to make sure it works and it did very well tripping a mixture of 3 sb800 and 2 sb900 while photographing hummingbird. The 14 foot max distance is not enough while using a 600mm lens.
