Excellent stove. But, remember, wood burning stove takes patience. Fuel needs to be gathered. Easiest lit when fire starters are used. It is not easy to get a lighted match to tinder at the bottom.
Advantages: not a lot of fuel (ie. sticks) is needed. Water can be kept boiling for as long as you have wood to burn. Packs easily because it can be nested into a pot. Can be found at Backpacking Light.com

Price Paid: $95
Arguably the best wood burning stove around...homepage is at http://www.bushbuddy.ca. The main difference between an Ultra and Standard is weight (5.1 vs 6.5ozs), probably thinner construction materials. I have the standard.
Very portable and light...fits inside my Snow Peak Trek 900 titanium cookset with a Brasslite Turbo II-F alcohol stove inside the BB.
Burns a "free" renewable fuel...wood, twigs, dry leaves/grass etc and with efficiency too. Next time you're out for a walk, look under almost any tree and you'll see fuel!
Reasonably easy to use...can be a bit quirky at times thou.
COST...maybe the highest for such a small wood burning stove...reason for not a 5 rating.
Leaves unprotected pots and pans quite sooty.
This is a personal thing but I just enjoy cooking over the BB...tendering the fire, dancing flames, jet gases burning...just enjoyable to me.

Price Paid: hey, it's ultralight
