I had the Optimus Nova, it stopped working, I can't remember exactly what went wrong.

I have the MSR Dragonfly, it works great but is excessively heavy and large. However, if you are doing real cooking, it does have a nice big platform for the pot, which leads to fewer meals dumped in the dirt

I'm currently using the SnowPeak butane stove, because it is so very small and fast & easy to set up. It's not that great for complex cooking, though, because the pot platform is so small and it just doesn't crank out the heat the way the Dragonfly does.
