Summary: Great Idea, nice and cheap, but flawed. Might need some software tweaks on your phone - several apps on the marketplace for this, some need root access. Was really useful though until I lost it because of the rubbish strap that comes with it.
Summary: Brilliant toy I bought this without much hope of it lasting more than a week but the mixed reviews made me think it had potential. I have to say after a frustrating start I am very glad I did. After updating the firmware on the device, a really simple operation, it works like a charm. The battery life is 2 days opposed to 8 hours. My only gripe is that it disconnects occasionally but for £20 an utter bargain.
Summary: This live view is better than what some of the people make it out to be. I bought it for the purpose of being able to answer calls etc while driving etc and it does the job. If i could fault this product is that the strap should come ready setup, you have to put it together which is a bit tricky.
Summary: Brought this on a whim even tho the bad feed back. I got it really quick and paired it really easy just follow the instruction anf it is fine. U have to use the live link do not pair like a normal Bluetooth device. Stays conected to just remember that u have to stay with in 10m of your phone . Would have given 5 stars but the battery is not good 6 hrs is all i get to a charge.
Summary: At full price, this would be a major disappointment: although the latest firmware improves the disconnection problems that initially damned this gadget, it still falls to automatically reconnect if you move out of bluetooth range, which seems pretty short (you can usually get it to reconnect from the liveview but if you leave it too long then my phone at least kills the liveview software so you need to restart it from the phone.
What it lacks in reliability it makes up for in geekiness

Summary: yes, the battery life isn't great ( about 24 hours ) meaning you need to charge it each night.. ( made even worse if you set it to vibrate on every alert ) yeh it does occasionally drop the Bluetooth link to my galaxy S2, but it does pick it up again fast enough. but over all , love it.. what a fantastic little gizmo If you know some one who's in love with phones and tech?
Summary: Got this free with my Xperia Active, took a little time to figure out how best to operate it properly and was quite frustrated with it at first. I only use it with GPS to work SportyPal and track my runs and its ideal as the phone can stay safely tucked away. Update. Stopped working after a couple of months.
Summary: Its a shame really, I was looking forward to this little trinket. I can't really vouch for how well it performs with other phones, but for the HTC desire its very frustrating. Prepare one and all for a heavy modification of your phone to make this connect for any useful length of time. It has disconnected somewhere in the region of 30 times today already, with very few automatic reconnections.
