I never had a Yongnuo flash, but buddingphotographer and I had a discussion here somewhere (Drop of Water), and his Yongnuo had optical slave, and my Canon 430EX did not. So I guess that some Yongnuo flashes can offer more than a ”name-brand” in terms of features.
Also, maybe an other aspect to consider : Nikon flashes can fairly easily be sold used, while Chinese copies are harder to sell. If you plan to keep them as long as they will last, that will not be a problem, but if you want to upgrade or sell it someday, it can be something to look at.
