    In my experience, its decent for those of predominantly British isles ancestry. Anyone outside of that, its hit or miss. For me, it was not the best, but not the worst either

    I have a lot of scattered European and Middle Eastern DNA, I ended up trying it out but I’m not sure what to make of it.

    I would guess they'll do a pretty decent job for you if you have 50 percent or more British ancestry and test directly. At this stage in the game they're definitely better with Brits than anyone else, which isn't surprising given that they took POBI as their starting point. It's still my most accurate commercial test, but then admittedly my last known ancestor from outside these islands was born in the 18th century.
    Living DNA's former Cautious mode:
    Wales-related ancestry: 86.8%
    Cornwall: 8%
    North England-related ancestry: 5.2%
    Y line: Peak District, England. Big Y match: Scania, Sweden; TMRCA 1,250 ybp (YFull);
    mtDNA: traces to Glamorgan, Wales
    Mother's Y: traces to Llanvair Discoed, Wales

    The only thing that seems different is the Arabian percentage, with ancestry and 23 and me it’s usually 20%
