My sister used some service. Not sure which. The results were probably pretty good. I also read an article recently about two twin sisters and one of them was a higher percentage of one race and the other vice versa.
Also on the conspiracy theory side, your giving your DNA to some foreign country who can use it to help create race based bio weapons.
But with all things, take it all with a grain of salt and chose wisely for yourself.
I have used 23 and Me in the past for my immediate family. They just improved their 'chip' process, so my old test no longer works for their new reports, so be prepared to keep spending money if you want to keep up with technology.
Having said that, it depends on what type of outcome you are looking for. 23 and Me seems to lean more towards the medical report type of customer. MyHeritage and Ancestry have way more information if you want to build out a family tree. All are expensive unless you are really into tracking down your cousins five times removed.
You are who/what you are so, do you really need confirmation to feel/know... what, exactly?
Are you going to feel proud that you're 'xyz'? What difference does it make? Having served in the military, my DNA is on file, yet it strikes me odd that people would voluntarily submit DNA to a company in which one doesn't really know how they will use it.
To me, it's like willfully allowed invasion of privacy - much like "Save XX% dollars on insurance" by plugging in a device that will track EVERYTHING about how you drive.
