Considering that I only really have used mine to boil water, Love how quick it heats and how compact it is. Can't comment on price, got mine with Amex points.

The coating in the pots is VERY easy to scratch off. I don't even use mine that much and simply moving stuff around with plastic ware when cooking makes cuts in the non-stick coating. Using a pack towel for the frying pan is a good idea to if you are going to take it backpacking. The jostling around of the cook set in your pack will scratch the inside edges if you don't. I destroyed mine.
I don't believe the damage is due to carelessness either. I am on my second set (thank you REI). The first one had another problem in addition to the scratches. The bigger pot warped and bent after cooking some bacon in it. It could have been defective but it was bent to hades.

I bought this cookset for car camping and river trips when weight isn't really an issue and I want to actually cook instead of boil water or make soup. It heats evenly, food doesn't stick to it and the packtowls are pretty handy. Not a bad cookset, I wouldn't take it backpacking or on a mountain because of weight, it's not incredibly heavy, but titanium is lighter.
Not worth it.

If you're going to spend this kind of money, step it up half a notch and purchase the MSR Duralite Classic Cookset. The Blacklite systems just do not hang in there over the test of time. Trust me when I saw that Mac n' Cheese is NO BUENO when there are hundreds of little black teflon 'pepper' flakes mixed in with your food. The Duralite cookset fixes this teflon chipping problem by anodizing the teflon coating to the metals making them far and away more durable.

You probably won't need all this when you go backpacking, but having all three available is nice. The high sides on the frying pan makes for difficult turning unless you have the "flip" down. The lid and pot lifter is handy. All in all a good set.
