I bought one. They are cheap and quick to use. And I don't have to remember how long my links should be, though that's easy enough.
I had some sloppy shifting last year and the chain checker showed I was almost at 1% stretch. Replaced the chain and that took care of the problem. So in my case it measured reliably and accurately.
