Strengths:    Good progressive resistance. As strong today as it was when I first bought it.

Weaknesses:    Gets hot - but mine had ample warnings.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this as soon as it came out in the mid-nineties. No leaks and great performance. Zero warranty issues. Might be the best money I have ever spent on bike stuff in 25+ years of riding. Probably 20k km equivalent on it (maybe more).

Strengths:    Quiet, stong, easy to set up and store, small footprint. Good resistance (when it is operating!!!)

Weaknesses:    Oil leak leads to an extremely short lifespan for a product of this cost.

Bottom Line:   
My experience is exactly the same as the other reviewers above. I purchased the trainer and I liked it. It worked perfectly for about 12 months, then began to leak oil. In short order all the oil was gone and so was the resistance! There is obviously a design problem with the seal on the resistance unit. This could be a great product if they could only get this problem solved.

Strengths:    Smooth, quiet ride.

Weaknesses:    Breaks after short time

Bottom Line:   
I've tried 3 different models of the cyclops fluid trainer and have broken 3 of these in the last 4 years.
Eventually, the thing overheats and the fluid leaks out. On the otherhand, REI is great for returning my money.
