I would rank that feature below a few other things.
I currently run a Leica Pinmaster, which is just a white colored version of their CRF800. No angle comp, but it's got a nicely lit display I can see in dim light. It has stellar optics so I can see to range in bad light. It's light. It's tough, and when they say 800 yards, they mean it, as I've gotten hits on semi-reflective targets WELL past 800 yards.
I usually range a tree as level with my height as I can and as close to my reference point as possible. This does the same thing as angle compensation, without the added "stuff" being done by the RF.
Is it bad to have? No. All else equal, if you get it for little or no more money, take it and enjoy it. I wouldn't lose sleep over whether I had it or didn't have it, though.
