Panoram computers any good?

Have been seeing a lot of these on e-bay, with a "buy it now for $25" designation. Does anyone know if they are any good? I like the wide screen display....

It says it is the same as the Topeak Panoram, but called Next Panoram. Same thing?

I don't know if it's any good but Next is the brand that Wal-Mart carries. I've seen those Panoram computers there.

Yes, that same computer is/has been available under a number of different brand names, including Walmart's Next.

They take up a lot of bar space, but seem to be OK otherwise as far as I've heard. Look at the Planet Bike Protege line if you want a comp that shows a lot of data at once in a more normal-sized case.

I have a wireless Panoram and love it.
Wal-Mart marketed several Topeak product as "Next". Got a Morph pump and Alien multi-tool from there.

Hmmm, I've always been sorta scared to go into a Wal-Mart. Maybe it's worth a try if they've got decent some decent bike equipment, but they just seem evil to me.
