I put a side imaging Humminbird on my boat last year. I agree 100% with HC, especially "it is not worth the investment if you think you are going to locate game fish". They are fantastic for finding structure (which can help in finding places to look for fish), but for actually finding fish, not so much. They are pretty cool tools though, although I'm not sure they're worth the significant extra cost.
PS: My two favorite places to fish stripers are the Delta and SL Forebay. I have found the sidefinder to pretty useless in finding fish because of the heavy weed growth/amount of debris in the water leading to false positives.
