Strengths:    Small and sturdy, easy to install, reliable, easy to take off/reattach.

Weaknesses:    None that i can find.

Bottom Line:   
The Cateye cordless 7 was my first cyclocomputer and thus far I've been quite happy with it. It's reliable and does everything I need it to. It's even gotten some light rain on and no problems. The avg speed, current mph, total odometer and time are all I need. I guess if you need more you may want to look elsewhere but this one pretty much is perfect. As for attaching the unit, I can't say as I had a friend do it but it only took about 15-20 min. I love that you can't see any wires and it's almost as if you had no attachments on the bike at all.

Strengths:    Easy to use. Very readable display.

Weaknesses:    Lacks basic functions any computer should have in its price range -- namely riding time and average speed.

Bottom Line:   
I bought a Cateye Vectra wireless to replace a DB-4 computer that was acting up. I just needed something basic but reliable (the DB readings got all mixed up when riding under traffic lights). I didn't read the box very carefully, but assumed that the Cateye would have all the functions on the DB, which cost $10 less. However, on the first ride I quickly realized the Cateye did not keep track of riding time or average speed. This is basic information that any computer ought to have, and it wouldn't cost Cateye any profits to include it. So I returned the computer.

Strengths:    Looks nice.

Weaknesses:    Transmitter stopped working after less than 3 months of use.

Bottom Line:   
This is a nice bike computer, but didn't last very long. My transmitter stopped working completely after less than 3 months of use. Since you can't buy a transmitter separately, the computer itself became totally useless. I guess I can use it as a paper weight. :(

It was a nice computer while it worked, but I had to give it a "1" value rating since it broke so fast and wasn't repairable. I would have tried contacting the manufacturer for a replacement, but live overseas, so didn't bother.

Strengths:    Simple install, no wires. Nice display. Sleep mode. ODO is retained while swapping battery.

Weaknesses:    2 batteries to keep track of instead of one. No cadence monitoring.

Bottom Line:   
Bought a Cateye Cordless 7 about two years ago. I've put almost 1000 miles on it since then and it's worked flawlessly. Installation is very simply, just attach to handlebars with the included zip ties. Despite the bad reviews mine has worked fine, maybe Cateye improved the 2005 model?

Strengths:    Easy to read speedo
easy to install
easy to take on and off when locking up bike at school.
user friendly interface

Weaknesses:    odometer and miles are too small
light on it sucks but when night riding you shouldnt really be looking at speedo.

Bottom Line:   
ive been using this for about 3 weeks and have a little over 300 miles on it. So for everything is going well and havent experienced any ghost readings or problems others have said to have. I found out cat eyes did fix alot of the problems with the newer models but so far so good.
