Supposed to be good, and a cheap way to get a full progression.
Yep. That's it. Good. Cheap.
But... I'd say that if you want to really get into it then nothing beats the stones.
@Mark at one stage had a few sets he was selling.

Australia until I can get out again
I have been using lapping film for a couple of years now. I bevel-set on synthetic whetstones, refine on lapping film up to 1μm (about 25k) and then finish on diamond pasted balsa strops (0.5μm, 0.25μm & 0.1μm).

I started using lapping films only because decent whetstones were not readily available. Unless you are honing a lot of SR's, lapping film is a good economical medium to use for honing.
