Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Neat little device.
Bad points:
There seems to be no way to have it display a message while connected to the computer, you have to download the message to the device via USB then disconnect it before it will display. As I wanted it to display messages while attached to the PC it's basically useless for me. However if you don't need this then it works well and is great value for money.

Bob, Crowborough Technically competent old twit

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
It has a surpringly good internal memory - allowing switching between several messages. The display is also nice and bright and the scrolling speed can be adjusted. I bought mine at a very good discount (without which I probably would not have bought).
Bad points:
No instructions included at all! There is a driver disc but nothing at all on how to load on mesages, message length etc. Also, what do you do with these displays? You can't pin them on your jacket or attach them to anything. It does make you wonder what they had in mind (and we won't know because of the lack of instructions!
