Strengths:    It works, looks sharp, sets up easily

Weaknesses:    Mount is poorly-designed

Bottom Line:   
This is my first computer, so I have nothing to compare it to, nor do I have any advanced requirements regarding data collection (GPS, cadence, etc). That said, this thing has been a real treat because it set up the way it was supposed to. I really did not think it was going to be that easy. I had bought an Origin 8 Datastation CPT (wireless), but for some reason, the reset button on that unit did not work. This one works. I'm really really pleased and a bit surprised. I'm glad I went for a wired unit this time.
the only negative is that if yougo over a bump, the unit falls out of the mount and onto the street. I had to put a piece of thin cardboard in there, under the computer, and then twisted the unit into place, nice and snug. I guess there is something to be said for a computer that falls onto the street (twice) and is as good as new. I put a ziploc over it when it rains.Thank you, VDO, for a good-guality product.
