Provides more genetic info than Ancestry.com, including health reports for some genetic variants that could increase health risks.

  This kit only provides ancestry info, the test with health included is $199:

That is true.  The $199 kit is usually discounted at the same time, but is now unavailable.

The usefulness of the ancestry test is related to the number of active users; I believe Ancestry.com has more users (4 million plus). However, I picked 23andme because I highly recommend the health test. This is more expensive but has fascinating insights into your genetic traits and to the possibility of developing multiple rare (and not-so-rare) diseases.

In any case, you need to be ok with providing your DNA to corporate America.  Probably not appropriate for some in the tinfoil-hat wearing internet community.
