Default Ice Cream maker?

I was looking at some of the (electric) compressor style Ice Cream makers and wonder if anyone has had any luck with them. The compressor style does not require the bowl to be frozen prior to making the ice cream. The name brand ones are a bit pricey, but some knock offs that get good reviews on AMZ seem like they may do the trick. Any one have personal experience, I'd love to hear about it.

I have a Cuisinart compressor ice cream maker that replaced an older freeze-first unit of the same brand. It is a night-and-day difference. Making ice-cream takes no more than 5 minutes to get started, we find ourselves making it a lot more often (with about 1/4 of the sugar used in commercial ice cream which tastes better to us).

The compressor versions cost a little over double but are so much more useful.

Biggest drawback in my opinion is the cleanup. the ice-cream always overflows its bowl and needs a lot of wiping down to get it out of all the crevices.
