Ok - what do you really want from a kettle anyway? Does it boil the water? Yes. Does it look good? Subjective but, in my opinion, yes. That's it surely? It's a rapid boil model but to be honest I'm not sure by which standard that is measured. It boils the water well within the timeframe expected for making some tea or coffee. At no point have I found myself screaming at it "come on - boil faster".
There is a rather cool blue light that pops on when you clink the switch down. The fill marking on the side are clear and, well that's it really.
In terms of reliability I've only had it for a couple of weeks and it's been faultless so far. The only criticism I could offer is that the lead to the base is perhaps a little too short. It's adequate for most users but if you have an odd power socket arrangement in your kitchen this may prove problematic.
Summary: Great budget kettle
