I started with a Lee single stage kit a few years ago and still use it. I like it because it allows me to inspect each step and was/is cost effective. I reload 40 S&W and just started 10mm last month.
I have no problem with the speed and will set for hours pumping out ammo. I have had no bad ammo produced to date and feel it suites me well.
Reloading has become an interesting hobby for me and I find I like it almost as much as shooting.
Have a Nice Day
