I like mine. I keep the flaps closed all the way in my space.
If you are the sort of person who likes safelights off when focusing and enlarging, then it isn't a good choice, because of the ramp up time, and the current surge might not be so great for the enlarging timer. If you leave the safelight on all the time, this isn't an issue.
p.s.: Thread title updated, despite my hatred of emoticons.
