Canon Flashes 420 vs 550 - Photography

I have a Canon Digital Rebel and wanted to get a flash. I would prefer to stay with Canon. Quite frankly I do not enjoy making alot of manual settings. I was looking at either the 420ex or 550ex, could someone help me understand what are the differnces and give some recommendations. Thanks, Gene...

    The 550ex has lots more options and manual settings. The 420ex is simpler,
    smaller, powerfull enough for most uses, and half the price of the 550ex.
    I have both and use the 420ex most of the time.

    Keep in mind that with the 420EX on the Digital Rebel, you will not be able
    to set a flash exposure compensation since neither the camera or flash have
    this control. At least with the 550 if you want to compensate the flash
    exposure, you can do that on the flash.
