Default Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad??

I was looking into the drumometer and ran across this item. The concept and practicality seems intuitively genius so I was wondering if any of you have used it? And if so are they all what they're made up to be? That and do you know of any electric kits that have a built in snare pad that analysis beats like the drumometer does?

"The Simmons SD1 Electronic Drum Practice Pad makes practice fun and adds tons of sounds to your kit. Plug in headphones for quiet drumming practice on your timing, dynamics, and speed, then plug it into an amp and use the many different drum sounds. Let the Simmons SD1 add color to your kit so you don't have to buy all the actual percussion instruments.

With an arsenal of 65 different drum sounds, 6 different metronome sounds, built in warm-up exercises, record and playback modes you will want to bring the SD1 practice pad with you everywhere.

As a drummer, you are the backbone that the other musicians depend on, and if you aren't on time, the whole band isn't. This drum pad features functions that will help you develop better time, dynamics, consistency, and over-all better drumming performance.
