    It is my first charger, so can't compare to anything else. But it does what I need it to do. Also bought a 2s and 3s adapter to charge 2 lipos at once. Does 2, 5800mAh, 2s lipos, fully charged from LVC in about 80 minutes. Are the faster ones out, yes, for sure, but it's a nice charger. No issues.

    I could charge the same two from 3.3v/cell to 4.2v/cell in about 30 minutes at 1.72C or at 1C in about 50 minutes.

    What charger is going to work best is something you are going to have to decide for yourself.
    The best advise I can give:

    Your charge system is going to be the backbone of your electric RC hobby... treat it as such!
    RC vehicles may come and go, but your charge system will remain.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    From 3.3v/cell to full: about 40 minutes when in parallel if the charger is set at 6 amps
    From 3.8v/cell to full: about 18 minutes when in parallel if the charger is set at 6 amps
    6 amps is a 1.22C charge rate with two 2450mAh batteries in parallel.
    Otherwise....

    From 3.3v/cell to full: about 61 minutes each if the charger is set at 2 amps
    From 3.8v/cell to full: about 27 minutes each if the charger is set at 2 amps
    2 amps is just below 1C... .82C to be exact.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
