    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    * It does stick to the glass.
    * You don't feel too bad when you find out it doesn't work since it's not expensive.
    * Easy to use, place close enough to a planet with a magnetic field (Will NOT!, repeat, NOT! work on mars!!!)
    * Does point in A direction.

    Cons:

    * Does not necessarily point north.
    * Seems to be covered with some kind of oily substance (?!)
    * Did I mention It doesn't point north?

    OtherThoughts:

    Bought two of them, neither one of them actually worked, the part that's supposed to point north just seats at the bottom of the sphere and seems to be very content with any direction it may be pointing at by chance.
    Looks like it was supposed to be filled with water, but i guess someone got thirsty on the production line...

    Bottomline:

    If you are looking for a compass, try one of the other models, this one is a waste of your money.
