I've been using it for about 2 or 3 months. I like it. It's good to be able to tell which rear cog you're riding in without having to look back at the wheel.

I just got mine as a birthday present. Set-up/install is a bit difficult, check campyonly.com for a review.

Ease of use is impressive, but the sub-menu button holding/pushing makes the learning curve steep. I'm confident that I will master it in no time, though.

I say go for it.

I'm so, so on this. I do like the idea of having the Campy name. I'm going through a very frustrating problem with the gear indicator not really working correctly. I called Campy once and they were on vacation. I have a sneaking suspicion my ergo needs a re build.
I would almost say get a good "wireless" with altitude etc. I think that's what I would do.
As a side note I have one on my 9sp cross bike and it works fine.

but I have a riding friend who just installed one. She likes it alot. She especialy likes the controls on the hoods.

One small problem when she installed it she did not leave enough extra wire leading into the computer. She laid the bike down shortly after installing it and ripped the wire out the back. The design doesn't appear to be very sturdy. The harness could be better designed.

I have two of these and love them. I am addicted to the chainring/cog display. I ride 24 hour events and the backlit display is great. The battery lasts a long time. I bought the second one after I rode a century through rain storms and the ErgoBrain didn't hicup once. Make sure you check the manual about cassette calibration while riding. The auto cassette detection isn't always correct.

I love mine.
The cost a lot but they work great with Ergo levers and they also look great.
