Strengths:    Durability, low power consumption.
Easy to use, big buttons, can be pressed with winter gloves

Weaknesses:    Could reset unexpectedly and mileage could not be re-entered.
Wish it had cadence.

Bottom Line:   
Have had this computer for almost 5-6 years. I have the wireless version and still have the original batteries. Easy to read, lots of functions (missing cadence). Only problem: when I first got it and it reset after about a year, and I was upset that I couldn't reintroduce my mileage. I readjusted the battery contacts and haven't had any problems since. Stuck a piece of thin cardboard in there to stop the battery from moving around.

Strengths:    Durability...I have had this thing in the shed for three years. Bought batteries today and fired it back up...The Sigma cyle computer I bought a couple of years ago faded out on me. I went with the Sigma cause it had cadence capabilities.But the Vetta still lives the Sigma is dead.

Weaknesses:    Dunno...I have to start using it again to remember if it has any. But I need some help. I lost my instructions. I need to know what number I need to key into it for a 700c by 20 wheel size. If anybody knows please e-mail me.

Bottom Line:   
I bought the Vetta C500 long time ago I dunno...5 years ago maybe? When did they first come out? That is probably when I bought it.
