Are they a reliable brand?
Haven't had any problems with it even after dropping it a couple of times. Bluetooth software is spotty at best with Win7, however I have not checked recent versions to see if they fixed it. Changing batteries is a bit of a pain. Also, the unit is always on even when it is off ... found that out the hard way.
Are they a good value?
Yes
And why would I want one model over another?
Features mostly. The only unit that does wind speed and direction along with data logging and uploading to a computer is the 4500.
Do you use all the features? http://www.nkhome.com/kestrel/kestrel-4500/
Not even close, but I have used many of them.
