A bit like buying a car without seeing the mileage. I guess this isn’t just a canon thing? It must be easy to put in the menu or put into EOS Utilities. Ah I feel another conspiracy coming on

Zim, that hurts. Free software is free for many reasons. There are many developers and corporate sponsors out there giving up their free time and knowledge to bring us great software like Gimp, Firefox, Open Office, Linux, Apache... Please don't disrespect them. True, there is a lost of nasty free software, but there is also very good stuff. Even Mac OS is based on free software (BSD), as is Android. Probably even some of the firmware in Canon's cameras.
Comparing the recycle times of a guide 43 flash with a guide 60 to full power is hardly fair. If the gun need to fire at guide 60 then the Canon 430 won't be able to do it.
Using an external power pack roughly halves recycle times, the Canon has a Yongnuo version at about £35, but the Nissin doesn't seem to have an equivalent, and their own costs a ridiculous £245.
You could consider the Canon 580EX which goes for around £240 on Ebay but the II version isn't much more fetching around £275
