As a novice juicer, I can't compare this model with others. However, I've had it for a month or so now and have discovered that, for things like apples and carrots, it does a good job - the pulp seems quite dry, which must mean that a good amount of juice has been extracted. I tried a kiwi and it was a complete waste of time - it just sent the whole thing into the waste container, there was no juice at all! So it's perhaps not that good for softer fruits, but OK for medium/hard ones.
The instruction book, whilst not containing any recipes, does warn you that you need to peel things like pineapples, which explains the problems that other reviewers have experienced, so take care to check this out if you buy one.
Since it can't cope with tough skins, or very soft fruits, it's perhaps not as versatile as a more expensive model. However, I paid a tenner for it on Amazon, so I wasn't expecting too much - I thought it would be a good "starter" model and give me an idea of how keen a juicer I was.
Cleaning really isn't a problem, as long as you scrape out the waste and rinse it under a running tap pretty much straight away, and give the filter a good brushing under the tap too. There are a lot of nooks and crannies in the lid which are not easy to get a brush into, so prompt rinsing is essential. I'ts not that much of a chore, but could become one if the pulp was allowed to dry.
If you're thinking about getting into juicing, it's a cheap way to give it a try - just keep away from kiwis!
