I have one as well.. For the Price, its a great unit. I currently have an LX-5, LX-3 , FL18 and a showdown. My go to unit is the Lx-5, but my wife prefers the showdown. its easier for her to read. I was playing around last year at the Brainerd fishing tournament with my units.. The poor Fl-18 was useless with all the flashers on the ice. But the Showdown, was right there with the LX-5.

Would it be my first choice, no, but for the money.. it will treat you right.

If you want to get by for less money they are ok. I do not like that there is a slight delay as opposed to a flasher. I am not sure why people think they are easier to read than a flasher. They both do the same thing. If you can read a showdown you can read a flasher. IMO.

i am looking at getting a showdown or a Vexilar

i am liking the showdown for the price and me never useing either i think it might be better to start out with but thats just me

Flashers and Showdowns are both easy to understand and get the hang of, the first time you're out fishing with one you'll quickly learn the basics like how to mark the bottom, how to mark your bait and fish, how the fish are reacting, and how to adjust the sensitiity, etc. As you use either one a little more you'll learn to distinguish hard and soft bottom types, how it reads in weeds, etc.
