engine oil extractor

is anyone using the engine oil extractor pump that pull oil up through the dip stick tube?

if so, what is your opinion of the process compared to the conventional method of draining oil?

the independent shop charges $108.00 for an oil change and uses Mobil 1.

an extractor at Bavauto is $90.00, 7 qts of 0 W40 at auto zone is $63.00 and a Mann filter is $8.00.

i always manage to spill oil when i do a diy so i go to the independent shop. the extractor looks like an easy solution, and in three oil changes it would pay for itself.
