Gil (Radio Prepper on Youtube) tested one which his friend bought, and he liked it, the size and weight was great and he was happy it included 80m.
His main beef appeared to be the current draw and the fragility of the mic lead and socket. For CW that need not be a problem, but...
It certainly seems no worse than a raft of other small SDR QRP rigs, especially if you can get it at the right price.
