I have it. It's pretty decent but I found the installation to be rather lengthy process (RTFM a few times is a good thing). I also found the cadence sensor to be a bit fat as it hits the reader (crank arm is a smidgen too close). Other than those two issues (and price of course) I do like it. Nice big screen, good back light, lots of options to work with (I still have to figure some out).

I think it's worth it (but then again, given the number of wired versions I've managed to slice and dice, anything wireless would be worth it. )

I have one and I love it! Unlike the previous poster, I found the installation to be quick and painless, and the unit works flawlessly. The only thing I would change if I was the engineer is that I would make the cadence function work the way it does on my Polar S520. In the Polar unit, cadence is not counted into computing average cadence when one is not pedaling. With the Cateye, if you are not pedaling, that time counts as zero cadence. The most important thing however, is that there is always a very accurate reading of your exact cadence. I love having speed, elapsed time and cadence all on one screen.
