Admittedly, it's a slight pain having to cycle through all of the options (and then cycle through all of the values for the option you're modifying). In that sense, the card is really no better than using a button right on the ESC. However, it's nice not having to have your face buried in a manual while counting blinking lights. So in that sense, it's worth it. I also love how small my ESC is, and I assume that couldn't have been achieved if they had built programming capability directly onboard.
So all in all, I'm pretty happy with the purchase. The card I received had outdated firmware, but it took all of 5 minutes to download the software for my PC, connect to the card, and then run an update. 100% painless.
