Hensley Brake Controller Worth the bucks?

Hensley talked me into buying their new controller (expensive). Never
towed a TT before and have no experience with brake controllers. If
what Hensley says is true, it's a "install and forget" item that
anticipates and responds to every nuance and therefore, hopefully
worth the extra buck. Like to hear some opinions from you experienced
members. Thanks

The orginal Hensley controler looked alot like the Brakesmart for more money and the orange color looked awful garish. Brakesmart has had some production issues and they have changed ownership I belive , I do love the way the Brakesmart works. I have had one unit fail and the orginal company 2nd day aired one to my campsite , that replacement control had developed problems as well and was way out of warranty, I contacted the current sellers and they repaired n/c. I have received the Hensley ads saying it(their control)is now new and improved. They may have better research back up ect. than Brakesmart. You will have to let us know as You use Yours. If I have more Brakesmart Problems I may give the Hensley a try. They still look very very like a Brakesmart and I would be curious to find out. But if it works like the brakesmart you will love it's function.
