Are super cheap flashes worth it? In certain usage situations, absolutely. If you are a hobbyist and don't need rock-solid reliability or plan on super-hard usage If the cost-savings is worth entering a copy/component quality lottery If you don't mind being an early beta tester with new models If you don't mind Chinese reverse-engineering issues ...
