That's great question. The reason for me is that I have one. Before I chose it, I did a lot of reading on this forum and others, and found similar opinions to what you have gotten here. You never know if those opinions are based on the same critera as mine - because they have one.
I will say that my 505 is simple to set up and read, reliable, sensitive, and to the best of my ability to test it accurate. I am certainly no scale pro with a bunch of calibration tools... But the results on the range have been good.
