Speed Bleeders worth it?

Curious to see if anybody has ever used speed bleeders and liked them. Not sure if its easier/faster to bleed and change fluid than just a normal bleeder with two people.

Speed Bleeders are not faster than bleeding with a helper. Of course, the advantage is that you can easily bleed the brakes by yourself when no one else is available. That's why I have them.

They work fine for the first few bleeds but the thread sealant can wear out with repeated use. After that, the sealant or the bleeders themselves would need to replaced to prevent air from leaking back into the system while bleeding.
