This should be replacing all those old MFJ analyzers every ham   Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I had the opportunity to put this analyzer up against a much more expensive model from another manufacturer and am more than pleased with the results (details on my website). At $140, the decision to buy one of these came easily and the results more than justify the purchase.

I am now active on the new 630m band and the antenna building process was greatly eased with this device. Unlike my old MFJ, it sips battery juice rather than gulps it and is lightweight and small enough to go from shack to feedpoint with nary an afterthought.

As a kit, this thing is simple enough even for a 1st-time builder and requires no test equipment or alignment although it comes with 3 termination loads if you do want to perform an alignment. This is simply a matter of scrolling through a menu and selecting the appropriate commands to initiate the process.

If you can find one of these analyzers to borrow, I'd bet a majority of folks would immediately buy their own after the borrowing ended. It's that good.
