I've had this beacon for a couple of months. All of my searches have been fast, easy, and accurate. I love the display, directional arrow, and green color (cause it's easy to find in my gear bag). It may not be the absolute best, but for the price it can't be beat. I would be pleased if others in my backcountry group were carrying this beacon. I have used a couple of other beacons and I find this one to be the easiest to use with gloves on.
