It has the advantage of using easily obtained and relatively cheap batteries, which in a pinch can be pirated from other devices most of us have around the place, such as small flashlights and TV remote controls.
The Bad: No means for user to calibrate meter. I have owned this meter for about 18 months, and have noticed that the calibration has drifted to one complete stop of under exposure, meaning that when I set the camera to ISO 100, the meter needs to be set to ISO 50 to compensate.
I don't have a lot of experience with meters, so all I can say is that this seems to work well. Putting it into to flash metering mode gives you a 90 second window during which you can continually manually trigger and measure you flash. This seems like one of those features manufacturers remove to make you want to upgrade, but I think it actually works quite well, assuming you've got a radio trigger with test button, which if you're contemplating a light meter, you probably do.
I only give three stars because I'm really bummed by the build quality, specifically of the little white dome. You can slide it left and right to change the type of metering (reflective/incident) but the construction feels like a cheap plastic toy. It takes nothing at all to flip it out of position, and more than once I've been getting wonky readings only to find I've knocked the dome out of place just taking it out of my pocket.
For the price you pay, it'd be nice to get something with solid construction throughout.
