I love it so far. I'm 79, and gardening is my hobby around my small condo gardens. I have only one faucet outside my front door that has to reach down the walk and to the end of my drive. Then, along the side of the condo and just to the back. There, I use the quick connects on an existing hose to reach the entire back. The shut-off valve on the connectors has made this so much easier for me.
The Hoselink resembles a small outboard motor. I was worried that it would be an eyesore placed near my front door, but it almost disappears and it can be turned away from the front walk. So far, there's no leaking. And, it's so convenient to walk out the front door, pick it up and go to town, as I leave the water on since there are no leaks.
I will say, that for me at least, there's a bit of a learning curve. Due to the hose tension, extending it takes some effort...not awful, just figuring it out. It's easier for me to place it over my shoulder and walk it out to the desired length. With retraction, it returns at a pretty good clip. That's great, but for an older person, the path to the Hoselink needs to be clear.
It's an investment for sure, but if gardening is your hobby, it's worth it.
