Strengths:    Compact size, cadence, speed and HR Monitoring included, its a wonderful piece to have on a bike.

Weaknesses:    Nil so far.

Bottom Line:   
I have been using Cateye products for years ; lights, computers etc. I like their quality and had no problems with any of their products so far. I recently got the 430 model computer and im enjoying my rides with the data i need. Will recommend Cateye products to one and all.

Strengths:    Looks nice

Weaknesses:    Unreliabile.

Bottom Line:   
I haveused many cateye products icluding lighting systems and cycle computers and found them to consistently do exactly what they claim. Recently I decided to have all my bikes use the same type of computer. I brought three strada cadence units. Within weeks the cadance sensor cable broke on one. Soon after I found a second stopped working because of corrosion of the contacts. The third now stops working because it is loose . I jiggle it and it works again but hard won ks aren't recorded. I can"t believe cateye have released such a rubbish design. I realy can't believe I have three of these pieces of crap.

Strengths:    Lightweight, well made.

Weaknesses:    Wiring, long term stability of the mount.

Bottom Line:   
These are a very popular computer, can't believe no one's reviewed it. The GF and I must have 5 or 6 of these going on all the bikes. They do what they claim to do. My beef is that after a couple of years the computer will no longer sit tightly in the mount and begin to slip and fail to read signals, sometime later it will fall out entirely, esp when bumped lightly. Until that happens, its great!! It is the mount/base component that is at fault due to soft plastic. Installation is pretty easy, however you may not like the aesthetic of all the wires running along your bike's chainstay and downtube. In a fairly heavy rain the contacts between the computer and mount will short out, you have to pull the computer out and blow the water off to get it displaying again. 1 x CR2032 battery life is about a year for me, these cost about $3. I find the display hard to read at times, as it is not huge, but that is because it is not huge, it is small! I keep buying them, so I must think they're the way to go.

Strengths:    none

Weaknesses:    it does not work (speed and cadence reads zero or other incorrect value) and the warranty support is almost as good - 4 weeks of waiting for replacement and only because I kept ringing the shop every week. The LBS installed it so there is no issue of "user error", it worked for a first few rides and then it stopped working or worked on and off, erratically.

Bottom Line:   
my review is similar to previous one by Gary Geller, in almost all respects. This computer is rubbish and the Australian CatEye distributor (is it Pacific Brands?) are incompetent (or worse!). I returned it back to the shop and after 4 weeks of waiting and 4 phone calls they are finally giving me a replacement but I dont have any faith in this product or warranty support. Dont buy CatEye cycling computers - this is my honest opinion. I have had 5 cycling computers over last few years - this is the only wired one that did not work at all. Zero out of 5 score, pity 1 is the lowest one on offer.
