Owned it just over a year now. Christmas present in 2014. At first I didn't like it. Was used to a single stage and felt like I lost a little bit of control by automating, even if not a true progressive. Now that I've gotten used to it I really like it! I like the fact that I can set up my dies and then just leave them alone. I have 380, 9mm, 38 special, 45 acp/ar, 300 blk, and 7.62x39 set up and use it like a turret press. I have 223 and 30/30 set up in a turret and 280 Rem and 7.62x54R set up in another turret. I use those like a single stage. I have two more turrets set up, one with sizers in .224, .309, .311, and .314. The other is set up with sizers in .356, .452, .460, and a universal decapping die. I find that t can do 250 + rounds an hour as a turret. Great in 9mm, 300 BLK and 7.62x39 as I seem to go through a bunch of those. Only 50 to 75 rounds per hour with the 223 and 280 as I load both of those for extreme accuracy, weigh and trickle each charge. I can fill 2 trays an hour with the 30/30 and 7.62x54R so 100 per hour for those. The difference is in charging the case, I simply throw the charges with a powder measure. So far I have not even had to replace the square nylon bushing used to advance the turret, although I do have spares in place just in case. I am very happy with my Lee Classic Cast Turret Press. I still reccommend to those that "want to try " reloading to start with the Lee Reloader Press so they will have minimal investment involved if they don't like reloading, plus I use the argument that you will always find a need for a second press, but I haven't used my Reloader Press in a while now! But for those who know they want to reload or those who want to increase productivity without going to a full progressive, the Lee Classic Turret is a great place to start!
