Well, I bought one as a gift and the owner is very happy with it. I cannot vouch first-hand on image quality but I found it an excellent value because it is one of the cheapest modern cameras with full manual controls, a wide-angle lens and AA batteries, particularly since Canon has been removing manual controls from their A-series. I'd say there aren't too many cameras this capable for such a low price.
Naturally, whether it's good for you depends on your needs. This type of camera is generally not so good for low-light and action because it responds slower and the lack of an optical viewfinder makes following action difficult. On the other hand, if you are travelling and shooting mostly in daylight you should have little to worry about.
