Glad you found something. The price sounds great for that flash. I wasn't the one who provided the link, though. You have Superakuma to thank for that.
Interestingly, I looked at some other brands of flash offering the same features for low prices, and found more which seem to be clones of the Vivitar and/or Digital Concepts unit. Must be they come from the same place, and just have different names on the outside depending on which distributor orders a batch.

I thought it would be nice to post a photo taken with my new low priced flash, the Sigma EF 500 ST.
