Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Cheap.
Wireless.
Lot of functions.
Good build quality.
Batteries are easy to find.
Easy to install and configure.
Cons:
Rattle snake :)
Te main unit has some kind of motion detector (small pipe with a metal ball inside), which is used to automatically turn on the computer.
And it constantly rattles when you ride!
Not too loud, but annoying.
Other:
There is a "motion detector" built-in, which is actually a tiny hollow pipe with a metal ball inside.
That's what rattles.
You can remove this "motion detector" detail (some soldering skills required), without harming the computers performance.
It will still turn on after button press, and turn off automatically after some time standing still.
Bottomline:
Good, but requires some modification (not necessary).
