Shouldn't you ask for opinions BEFORE you buy one!?!?

It depends on what level your game is at but the P3ProSwing will be of course be calculating ball direction, spin and distance so don't expect it to match what you necessarily see in real life.
It's a pity it only works with EA's Tiger Woods, not Links LS.

Anyone have any input on one with decent results on a student budget? (less than 400 maybe?).

Using something like this for fun, can be fun. When one tries to "beat" it, one can get into bad habits.
Over the years I have had several swing analyzers/launch monitors for fitting customers. I never let the customer see the screen/data while they were swinging as they would try to beat/modify the read out in which case, the data was useless for fitting them. We would review the data and the "averages" as we went, but not on a swing to swing basis.
An aside story on swing simulators. When living in the chilly north, we would go to a place that had full screen simulators to "play" a round of golf. We soon found "hot spots" on the screen that if you punched a shot at, it would register an awesome drive even when the punch shot was say way left, low, and done with a 5 iron. We made a rule that "trick" shots were illegal. We had to rule if you made a "real" shot or not......LOL

The simulator equivalent of secret keypad cheat combinations on a Playstation game. Good story.
