Good control for short drops.
Not good with additional weight a heavy rope (because of a long drop). Its harder to govern speed and keep the heat down then my SMC rack.
SMC is pretty much the only way to go when looking at racks.

Easy to adjust friction
clunky
This is a staple for cavers everywhere for rappelling into pits and doing crossovers. Friction can be adjusted by moving or unclipping the individual bars. Extremely easy to tie off if you want to hang for a while. I have only ever seen it used underground on single static ropes. Great for caving, unnecessary for rock climbing.

Its a rack. They are good for what they are good for.
No hyper bars and pretty heavy. I saw a girl get her hair stuck in one while caving once. It was crazy.
Petzl Simple.
