Few of my Geocaching friends use it and rate it highly.
Depends what you want to use it for but I'd also go for the basic Etrex (10). There's Review of a few here:
I've got an etrex 20 I don't use as I have a team-standard Satmap. It has some Alps mapping loaded. Only used about 6 times, got it in March.
Would do a deal for £150 posted if you're interested.
Mapping can be bought and downloaded from Garmin as required.
I actually prefer it to Satmap but have been told I don't need two units...
The basic ETrex are also dead cheap second hand on eBay - I know because I'm selling one for a relative.....
Personally, I very rarely used one that only gave coordinates - it lived in my bag through many a Scottish whiteout, sometimes brought out at lunchtime to check it agreed with where I reckoned we were. Map and compass were still the main way to navigate. Very much an emergency tool. Whereas the newer ones with electronic OS mapping - fabulous! I'll happily use that as my primary navigation tool on the hill, with map/compass as the back up.
