Default Electronic practice pad

While looking around for a good practice pad, I noticed this

http://www.gear4music.com/Drums-and-...actice-Pad/AR8

This seems to have a number of interesting features, including built-in excercises, ability to make different drum sounds, metronome, record/playback, and of course headphone jack.

Anyone used one of these? What did you think?

I haven't tried the Alesis one, but Roland makes a similar model which is very nice. I've been thinking about getting it for quite some time.

It can accomodate two external triggers too, so you can attach a cymbal and kick drum pad and have an efficient little practise kit.

Thanks. This uses Roland's mesh head technology. Plus I like the fact you can connect kick drum and cymbal pad.
Think I will get one of these!
