Just get a Blazer"big shot". Same price on Amazon and all metal construction. Only torch I've owned where there igniter didn't stop working almost immediately. I've had one for over 4 years and use it almost daily. Only torch I will every buy or recommend.
How is this better than a regular blowtorch?

It's small, so it's lot more manoeuvrable. The butane containers are also small so there's less impact if it explodes. If you have a 14oz (or larger) propane tank indoors it's generally more dangerous (look up 16oz propane tank explosions on YouTube). On the other hand, you can't do actual blowtorch things as this is a "kitchen" blowtorch, which doesn't get hot enough for soldering and welding.

Plenty hot for soldering and light brazing. Not hot enough for welding. Maybe a little DIY heat treating, perhaps? Where’d I leave that darn Sebenza...
(Edited)
is this good for searing meat in sous vide?

No, it's butane; it's good for crème brûlée but that's about it. For searing a steak you want at least propane. I use a Bernzomatic TS8000 since it has flame control to cover more cases but the TS4000 will work for steak just fine.
Cannot comment on the quality of this torch but there are companies that sell life time warranty torches. That being said, not all are equal.
Similar torches can be had much cheaper. Not sure about this on mass drop.
It is butane.
Once AGAIN.....MD copy is lacking details and clarity. We "assume" that your copy "lighter fluid" means gas. What about ignition source and size??? Why should your customers do the leg work to find the answers to very basic questions?? All that does is piss people off. Truly dumb and inconsiderate. JMHO!!!
Is it "lighter fluid" or "lighter gas?" There is a HUGE difference as one is BUTANE and the other is NOT. Please clarify.

Pretty sure gas and not fluid. Their website says gas, and other similar torches take gas.

Thank you....this is what I assumed but when I hear "lighter FLUID" I think of my old Zippos. I have two cooking torches and both take butane as you noted.
