Strengths:    Inexpensive, Works well

Weaknesses:    When out of range of the sensor, it can display some wild readings.

Bottom Line:   
Although it might not have all the bells and whistles, it works fine as a bike computer. I've logged over 1500 miles on this thing and it hasn't failed me yet.

Strengths:    Easy installation
lightweight


Weaknesses:    Display readability in low light
no auto-start
poor battery life
poor contact
inaccurate readings


Bottom Line:   
I got this because I wanted to go wireless and couldn't afford much more. Getting this computer was a mistake. The battery life is terrible, and it's incredibly inaccurate. It listed my top speed as 100MPH when I couldn't have been going more than 45MPH on the steepest hill! It's also TERRIBLE at measuring distance, and the sensor detecting the magnet on the wheel is pretty touchy, so expect intermittent outages. I also can't read it during my pre-dawn commute

DO NOT GET THIS PRODUCT! It's JUNK!

I've now ordered a Cateye Micro

Strengths:    Easy to read

Weaknesses:    Mounting bracket doesn't work very well with specialized bars, had to mount it across the neck.

Bottom Line:   
If I hadn't read the reviews here, I wouldn't have gotten it set up so quickly. Worked perfect right off the bat.

The sender has to be at almost a 45 degree angle from where I would have mounted it due to my suspension fork. (Getting the sender and wheel sensor close enough to each other)

For $15 it's a bargain

Strengths:    ease of use
price


Weaknesses:    instructions

Bottom Line:   
OK...tone it down guys. Performance installed mine so I had NO instructions, but thanks to a few of you I figured out in less than 15 min it was not a product issue, my sensor was just off. Well worth the price, love the scan mode.
