echomaster radar reflector

Ive got a Davis Instruments 'Emergency Echomaster-style Radar Reflector' on board. While it doesnt take up much space, I must say that when looking at the jetsons-esque piece of gear I had to wonder if it actually works or how effective it would actually be if ever needed. Should it be kept as a back up to more modern position reporting systems?
