Not bad if it's just to use a few times and in good weather, but worth spending a bit more if you are really into camping (especially one with a higher hydrostatic head than 3000 (especially with the rain in the UK)).
Me neither, mainly for car camping with a family tent.
Some serious weight there, so I wouldn't recommend for backpackers. Plus, the pack size isn't too convenient.
As far as I know this type of mattress was invented by Thermarest many years ago as an alternative to the old fashioned foam roll mat/ karrimat. It enabled people to sleep in extreme cold where simple foam just was not warm enough. This was for wild camping, these had to be carried and were just 2-3cm thick. Comfort was not really the aim. As times have moved on, car campers and sleepovers have started to use the thicker SIMs for their comfort. If you don't overinflate them, the foam will support you a bit and it dampens the wobbly airbed sensation, letting you sink into it more like a regular sprung mattress. Cheap air beds often seem fine on first use but tend to start leaking after you have used them a few times. Good SIMs are more durable. Also if you have just pitched a big tent you sometimes aren't in the mood to inflate a bunch of airbeds for the whole family, just want to open a beer instead.
When you use a traditional air bed the air inside it gets cold at night and you lose body heat. with these SIMs they have foam inside and don't get as cold. Pros and cons.
