Any Garmin Echomap 50s Users?

I am considering buying a Garmin Echomap 50s chartplotter. The newer 50s replaced the 541 line, and should be supported longer by Garmin.

A few reviews panned it as not having a good multiple screen display.

Does anybody here actually have one, and if you do, what do you think of it for use in coastal cruising?

Any recommendations for other better units in the under $700 price range?

Thanks in advance for any help.
