While 212 is not a 'bad' cooler it has been seriously over-hyped / over-rated / often over-priced for as long as it's been around. Almost every company has coolers similar, some at similar or lower prices and often with similar or lower temps .. so more often than not we can spend less money on and get a better cooler than 212 is.
