Default TEC cooling?

How well does TEC work? I saw This today and I wondered how well ti worked. I know that most all in one exotic system tend to fail but I don't know much about TEC. Since its active I would assume its better than air cooling, but how does it stand up to WC?

I feel like it could beat a lower end WC system, but wouldn't really stand up against a good watercooling system.

Ultra ChillTec Thermo Electric Cpu Cooler - Overclockers Club

looks OK at best, all though that review is a bit old. the money would be best spent on some thing like this,

Just from looking at their graphs, it doesn't work that well for the money. I'm assuming they're using stock coolers to base that off of, and 9c degree difference on a 4400+ for 150 bucks? I'd just get cpu WC loop. That's just me though.

I thought kits like that sucked. Or are you being sarcastic?
