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

Pros:
Very small but still easy to read. Fairly good construction, this thing isn't going to get bumped and break apart.
Cons:
There really aren't any. The bubble can cause slow responses but unless you carry it in your pocket where it's being tumbled, that's not really a big problem.
Other:
I've mounted it on ATV handlebars (with 1 tiny nylon tie) and it seems to work great. I'm going to hot-melt glue one to the dash in my little fishing boat and it'll be good enough. (I've had a bigger, more expensive one stolen - Nobody will steal this one!)
I wouldn't bet my life navigating by this device but as a handy little direction finder, especially at night (you'll need a flashlight - it's not luminous) it will be very handy.
Bottomline:
A good bargain. It's small & cheap, costs like a toy but seems to work quite well. I'm going to order a bunch of these to give away too.
