How Good is the Meter in the ME?

I have a couple of ME SEs on the way, one of which I bought for almost nothing, and I am wondering how accurate the ME meter is. I have used the ME Super rather extensively, and have, for the most part, assumed that the meter is the same in both cameras. Is it the same meter? I welcome any feedback or commentary. With the exposure latitude of contemporary films--and the extremely low price of the ME--I figured the ME would be a good choice.

By that era TTL metering was very accurate - the further development of metering had more to do with 'automating' the last photographer's skill item - the application of exposure compensation - via matrix metering schemes.

I shoot slide film with my ME quit often and haven't had any trouble.

Having used the ME and ME Super extensively, I can tell you with confidence that the meter is pretty accurate. I've never had a problem getting a good exposure.
