On the plus side, if what I just stated doesn't bother you (i.e., you're only going to be dehydrating fruit chunks and apple slices, etc.), than you will love the durability of this construction. The box also says that the dehydrator is BPA-free, even though it's not mentioned in the description.
Airflow and drying is very uniform. There's minimal need to swap trays around, but for long drying projects it will be helpful. The variable temperature control is a good feature and it works quite well. I was a bit concerned that a 500 watt machine might not produce enough heat but those fears were unfounded. Perhaps it's the shape of the unit, or maybe the fact that it fits together so tightly, but it generates a lot of heat. In fact, my first batch of jerky really got way too dry. It was my fault; I didn't expect the meat to dry nearly so quickly as it did. But so far I've done apples, peaches & bananas and all came out great. As I write this I have some garden tomatoes and some zucchini drying.
As some have noted, the included fruit-leather/catch trays warp pretty fast. To this I say- so what? They still do the job. If you want to make a lot of leathers you'll probably get a Sil-mat anyway.
This is a great dryer. The only minor knock I could give it is that the capacity isn't huge, but of course I knew that when I bought it. It's supposed to be able drive a dozen trays, so it's expandable. Of course, for the cost of six more trays I could simply buy a second unit! Probably the best use of extra trays is incremental expansion.
This is more of a unit for a hobbyist or someone who wants to experiment with stuff. It's simply too small for someone who wants to preserve the output of a huge garden. But for the size it's really superb. The great ergonomics and near-silent operation will win you over.
One last note; obviously I can't yet comment on if it will last for ten years. But before purchasing the unit I did e-mail the seller. I received a response within 10 hours. So the provided e-mail address is valid and response is quick.
[update 20120505] Contacted manufacturer, they told me about 10 year warranty for the base. I shipped them the base of this unit (under $11 from USPS), about 3 weeks later I got it back in a working condition again. There was no communication from the manufacturer about ever receiving the unit, fixing it, or sending it back to me - a bit annoying, but in the end they shipped it back to me and it seems to be working fine now. Bumping my rating up to 4 stars.
