I was thinking about using one of these to diffuse light vs a normal diffuser attachment on an SB-700 flash. Anyone have any experience with these?

the one you picked out is quite large but it would totally do the job. if your strapped for cash you can always take the poor man route and go to a fabric store and make one. but for less than $20 cant beat the one you found wink.gif

i see them used quite a bit

Lightsphere or Omni-Bounce. Both are excellent, I'm a big fan of the Stofen when using flash (which I don't often).
