They are good to use for some of the information, but there are better HUD(Heads Up Displays) that you can get for more powerful software such as PokerTracker and Holdem Manager.
The problem that I have with some of the HUDs is that I think the players that get used to using them are never forced to actually think for themselves. They just look down at the information it provides them and don't do any calculations on their own. So when these people ever go to play a live game, they don't know what the hell to do because they don't have their little stat machine there to help them.
I think they should be used at first to help someone get to know how to know what M-Zone and the like down in their heads, but then should be discarded and they should do it on their own.

i used tournament indicator for about a year and just realized it just got in the way more than it helped. Sometimes it would tell you you had good pot odds just with a 72 because you were three handed and already had so much money in the pot. I don't like going just based on facts. I feel like poker is just like anyother sport and you have to go with your heart and instints sometimes.

I tried using indicators for a while, but it didn't improve my results or tell me anything I didn't know. It did tell me the best times to bluff, but I almost never went with it's advice. No way it can tell the feel of the game the way aperson can.

I have poker indicator and don't use it. To me it is distracting. But I play sng's and PI is geared more for ring tables.
