It is a big effort to get a good rate (80%+) and have it with usefull tests.
I for my self am still stuck on the 10% because i don't have the time to do further unit tests. But it still is a measurment for me since i can surely say those 10% are working if the tests don't fail.
I guess it's an issue most people have. I either don't have enough time to write proper tests or you don't have the knowledge to do good tests. I still need to get into a mocking framework to be able to test my methods where db querry are executed

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I do not believe that we can slap on a number to ensure that tests are actually meaningful. I have worked in places where we had to make sure that 80% or more coverage was required. Getting to that number, honestly, is very easy. Getting to that number with meaningful tests, may or may not be.
So, yes we should look at the coverage but no that does not tell how well we have unit tested the code.
