    In no order of preference ...

    1) Mecablits (Metz)
    2) Sigma
    3) Sunpak
    4) Nissin
    4) Yung Nuo
    5) Vivitar
    6) Others

    Some feature very high-high automation / with dedicated capabilities to sync to ETTL/II such as Metz, Sigma. Some feature good old manual use, mainly for strobist usage, while others may feature potential cross-connection capabilities (Pentax-Canon, Olympus-Canon, Nikon-Canon).

    Take your time and check out the Mass Sellers and other stores. Best is to do almost ALL your work before hand and Read The In-Depth Reviews. They can offer critical advise regarding digital equipment.

    CHEERS!

    What camera are u using? If you r using Canon, I think you might be able to go for the 270EX (S$239 - RRP and less than $200 in SLRR, HN, CP). (http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=518391).

    For Nikon, you could go for SB-400 (which is also around $200) (http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=458315)

    Of course the abovementioned flash do not have swivel head capability though.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    The usual suspects are Nissin, Metz and Sigma... Some are more advanced than others, offering features such as TTL etc.

    There are also even simpler ones, offering only manual controls... Cheaper too.

    What exactly is "cheap and good"?

    I don't think there is such a thing. More appropriately, I'd say "value for money".

    For 3rd party flashes, I think the Sigmas are pretty good.
