Strengths:    It is easily attachable to the stem.
Button under the unit is a quite convenient to use.

Weaknesses:    Mounts on the left upper side of the chain-stay which create lots of nuisance.
~100 cm of transmitting distance is too small for cadence sensor.

Bottom Line:   
It's obviously not supposed to be used on MTB as the transmitter should be mounted on the sprocket (left) side . As you spin the pedals or maybe just lay you bike on the ground, the transmitter usually revolved just a little. Contact with magnets gets lost and you should stop and correct its position a little. Again and again.
I've tried to mount on the right side, lower than chain-stay, but ~10cm longer distance is too much for it. And finally after 3 months it got broken (I don't guess how).

Strengths:    Many functions

Weaknesses:    ~Mounting tab breaks off
~No backlight
~No outside temperature

Bottom Line:   
DO NOT keep removing the head unit from the mount!!! Every time you re-insert the display piece a loud snap occurs.

Well, one day the tab broke off and the head unit flew off my bike, never to found ever again and rendering the remaining sensor completely useless...since CatEye will not sell you another display.

Strengths:    Can't think of something special. This seems to be just another cycle computer.

Weaknesses:    The clamp is not up to its task. On the first proper crash, my bike got hit on the handle bar (not directly on the computer!). The computer fell off and I lost it forever somewhere in the shrubs. Not something I'd expect from a product designed for a bike (even road-warrior bikes get bumped).

Also, I couldn't make the cadence sensor work (and I tried hard!). I thought we're in 2010...

Bottom Line:   
Get something else. If you already have it, add some extra cable binders to avoid loosing the computer.

Strengths:    Fit and finish; great display; multi-functions; double wireless to accomodate cadence too.

Weaknesses:    Needs a backlight!

Bottom Line:   
This computer can be used on two bikes and changed back and forth. It has the basic functions to include a double wireless transmission to allow cadence. It is easy to cycle through the various functions and easy to reset. It works.......point blank. Never had a issue with any Cateye product I have ever had. I would have given it a 5 on the overall rating but it does not allow for seeing the cadence average nor has a backlight. But these are things that I can live without.
