Once you subscribe how useful is the Cartel Market?

I'm going to pay for a one off subscription soon and I was wondering if I should buy some Cartel Coins along with that. How useful is the Cartel Market once you've subscribed? I assume that a lot of stuff in there is stuff that's unlocked once you subscribe. Is there anything worth buying?

Nah. Only cosmetic stuff.

You get 500 or something cartel coins every time you pay the subscription, btw.

Ah, cool. Thanks!

Yeah the experience boosting stuff might be useful but I haven't really played in a while so I can't say..

The limiting factor of the Cartel market is that each unlock is for a character not an account.. so if you spend 1000 cartel points on a suit of armor.. that's it.. only one character gets it.. which blows..

Eh? You get useful crystals if you are lucky with the crimelord packs. Very useful crystals. Though pink.

It's a boon for selling the stuff on the GTN and making easy credits.

You can buy those crystals from other people for negligible amounts of credits instead. And as for "very useful," while leveling they provide a small boost, but... They're identical in stats to every other level 50 crystal. You can just use them before 50.

Very useful for leveling, and for most people, at least those who start out, 150k+ for just the end ones really isn't that cheap.

and rolling the dice on cartel coins is somehow more affordable?

I don't think so.
