Still going strong
I have used my Snow Peak for more than 7 years (no less than three 5 day or longer hikes a year). Mine has an auto-light. Neither the stove nor the auto-light have ever failed to perform. It is light, small and dependable. My only critisim is the same with all prop/butane stoves, poor cold weather performance. After years of sleeping with my cannister in my sleeping bag at night and in my pants to warm the fuel up in anticipation of stopping for lunch while winter camping, I broke down and bought a multi-fuel stove and burn white gas but my Snow Peak is still my default stove because of size and weight.
