I have the 500X and it works well enough for me, especially since I purchased directly from the company for a pittance after I contacted them about problems with one of the earlier and cheaper models that I had. In some ways it would probably be cheaper for occasional drill-bit users to just purchase new bits or cheap bits when the old ones wear out as twiceisnice says, but, heck, the little sharpener is kind of fun to use, and it does seem somehow proper to not just discard a bit that can be sharpened.

I will say that the DD instructions can be a big confusing, but if you work with the thing enough you get the hang of it and it works just fine. MrRon is right about trying to sharpen really small bits.
