You might want to take a look at the Nissin:

Hello,
Dont buy anything cheap or you will get cheap results.
Look for bargains and buy what you need to get the job done.
If Yongnuo, Nissin, Metz, Nikon from low-high priced.
If you want to learn more about flash buy a manual flash and experiment rather than an expensive one that you do not know how to use. I manual flash will force you to learn about fill-light and full power flash, whereas a fully auto-flash will not.
Flash is an entire full topic of photography so take the time and learn it and the knowledge will serve you well and increase the creativity of your pictures immensely.
If you need tutorials visit YouYube or forums or just google it.
Dont just buy stuff choose wisely and learn accordingly.
Good Luck.
Happy New Year
Pete
