Is it as good as a Dremel...no...will it do the job...yes.
You have to change out collets if you have bits with different size shafts. You can get a universal chuck for it but the handle on the flex shaft has to be modified in order for it to fit.
$32? I got two for $15 each on woot.com. You see them pop up every now and then.
Once you have yours set up and your bits in place they have every bit of speed and power that the Dremel has.
Longevity? I do not believe that it will last as long as my dremel's have. The flex shaft seems flimsy. That being said with proper lubricant and keeping the shaft straight I think that they will last more than $32 worth.
