I've got a Signal Dynamics flasher and it gives you a choice of flash patterns. Mine flashes 5 times and goes solid. I like this pattern because I can always release and reapply the brake if I want the pattern to repeat.
Regardless of which brand you choose (or flashing manually), a flashing tail light greatly improves your visibility to those behind you which is exactly why New York State (and I'm sure others) recommends that the rider flash their brake lights when stopping. I notice that cars generally back off a little when I apply my brakes now, whereas before I installed the flasher, they just tended to slow at the same rate as me.
