Good fun for a reasonable price – Customizable Text Dot-Matrix LED Scrolling Message Display Cap (Red Light) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
* The cap itself seems to be build well enough.
* The message is clear, the speed used to run the message across the screen (3 characters at a time) is nicely paced.
* Price makes it a good gift item
Cons:
* Setting up the messages is a crime.
* The on/off button is on the inside of the cap, on the printboard, which made it hard to use for my father-in-law, for which it was intended
* no way to edit an existing message, or to delete a character when programming
Other:
There was a sticker placed on the plastic screen in front of the cap which left an ugly stain
Bottomline:
It has been an excellent gift, made my father-in-law very happy, altough he still needs help getting the messages on or off
