What I do like is that you can actually use it during a light rain because it is a closed top, unlike a open traditional spreader system. That is probably the main benefit to this product. But again, the purchase price on the bags doesn’t justify it.
If you don’t mind paying the higher price then go ahead and buy this.

It was dead simple to load the snap bags on the spreader and push it around. Super easy to pick up the snap bags and pour leftovers back into the stock bags at the end. Edge guard worked great, spreads product evenly even with edge guard on.
3 tips / things we learned:
— When reusing bags with non-snap-pac product, keep the bag handles intact. Just make a slit in the top of the bag, cutting only through the front plastic. The bag handles must be able to loop onto the spreader to keep the bag upright so that the contents don’t spill. We have one spot that should grow a grass monster now…
— To load more product into an opened snap pac, take the bag off the spreader and set it on the ground to load because the bag stays upright by itself. The spreader does NOT have a kickstand or some method to stay upright by itself… Second grass monster seeded…
— In the rain, we plan to try covering the slit in the snap pac with Saran Wrap and scotch tape to improvise a rain cover. Should be even greatert!
Sad that I missed the ridiculous Amazon sale last week, but will totally buy another if it goes on sale again so we can wrap up yard work twice as fast. Glad we got this!
* Disclaimer: we’ve never used another kind of spreader and we’re first time homeowner so we have no actual basis for comparison.

I consulted Scotts site to find out what my lawn needed. They show pictures of examples to choose from and ask questions. The results from following their directions was reallly gratifying.
From opening the box, I was impressed to see the Snap flop in to place. All you need to do is tighten the handle, and take off a paper information sheet. No tools (not even scissors) necessary.
I was really skeptical about the bags being able to go on and off without making a mess, but that was also a happy surprise. You don’t have to spend any time lining up the bag a certain way, or touch any part where fertilizer has made contact. You just set it, flip the switch, and you’re good to go. Same goes for removing the bag. Not a single pellet came out of the bag (though, you would want to move the Snap around a little, because there will be some fertilizer in it until you flip the switch to “unlock”).
The edge guard works brilliantly — not just deflecting the fertilizer, but also reducing the spread (so you’re not overdoing the line you’re edging). Really, really smart design there that helps you squeeze every last pellet out of these bags.
On one hand, I was a little put off by the Snap bags being a bit more expensive than their standard counterparts, but when I thought about how many partially-used fertilizer bags I’ve disposed of over the years because of moisture, or less than optimal storage, it’s really not more expensive to me at all. Having self-sealing bags that distribute the perfect amount of fertilizer, and that I can switch out whenever I want… that kind of convenience is well worth a tiny premium.
But, I just cut the top of the bag when it was emptied, so that I can refill it with my own (other) grass seeds.

As far as use, it does work fine once the bag is installed, but the bags are so small, that it kind of defeats the purpose of this system, since I end up just using the whole bag anyway.
