Well, I have tried my share of "entry level" wireless triggers, and until the recent launch of YongNuo YN-622, yes pretty much all of them stunk, with odd behaviors, "quirks", and just not working as they should. YongNuo YN-622 is the first "affordable," or Chinese, triggers that truly seems to work flawlessly without issues, probably the most impressive off-brand photographic piece of equipment I have tried, period.
As far as off camera E-TTL, sure it's nice to control everything manually IF one has the time, but with these new affordable E-TTL triggers available, more and more photogs are embracing them for things like wedding receptions where kids and people are running around, giving photogs no time to properly set up the lighting.
