Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was excited about the features in this camera and thought it would be extremely useful for me on my early morning rides. I was wrong.
The light is barely sufficient for riding in the dark. I have $30 cheap-o non-rechargeable lights that offer more spread and brightness.
The picture itself is shaky, there is no discernible difference the stabilized picture and the regular HD. And without an adequate light you can only make out the things that are within 10 ft. Forget about recording a vehicles license plate.
For 4 months I tried different combinations on the settings to see if there was something I was missing. At that point the malfunctions started happening. First it would not turn on, support told me to update the firmware. Over the course of a week I attempted their instructions 20-25 times without success. Then without the update, the unit began working again but will now not sync up with the computer app.
I have had regular contact with the support staff....and when I say regular, what I really mean is that they respond every couple of weeks. On one occasion it was 35 days before they responded.
I have asked for my money back and the response I got was a reset from the first email I sent, "try and update the firmware".

I am done.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Why is it that Italians believe that if it is worth doing, then lets do it with style?
I've got a little over 200mi on my size M Cento 10. I have a Cento Uno SR with 28,000 miles on it so I am familiar with the brand and obviously a loyal customer.
I have a full Campy Super Record EPS set up. Putting any other components on such a proud Italian steed seems like absolute heresy.
The set up is not for the faint of heart, have patience and take your time, the rewards are worth the extra effort.
The ride is slightly more twitchy than the SR, it took a couple of rides to find the sweet spot with the handling. The Cento 10 is every bit as comfortable as the SR, feels stiffer through the bottom bracket and maybe it's the placebo effect but I swear this thing is faster. It just feels slippery at speed, like I am efforting less for the same results.
I'm going to give this a 10 out of 10 for style, comfort, performance and all around badassery.

For those of us with odd or problematic feet we search for relief from our various ailments. The particular benefits for me is the metatarsal button which relieves a painful spot under the ball of my right foot. And the interchangeable arch supports. I use a medium on the right and a small on the left. Finally being able to "tune" an insole has been great.

Installation of these in my Bont Vapor shoes took 92 seconds of effort.

I was surprised with the added warmth and comfort provided by this piece of kit. The merino is soft and non scratchy, the length is just right. I have used the regular buffs that are too long and don't keep the cold out on winter mornings.
I use it on every ride below 44 degrees.

What a bad ass piece of kit. I have used other wind shirts that don't have near the flexibility of the Flanders. The neck is snug but the rest is true to Castelli sizing-- in other words one size up from your normal.
Turn a normal jersey or non wind block jacket into great cold weather gear. I would recommend it for use in sub 50 degree weather and layer it up for the colder temps.

I have been hunting for proper shoe covers for some time. Something that looked the business and had adequate protection from the cold. These fit the bill on both counts, snug without lots of bulky material. Much easier to put on and off than most other brands. Not a lot of insulation but keeping the wind off your toes goes a long way. I have worn them down to 30 degrees on the road bike.
I did rip a small hole in the side after numerous rides. While I would not call them delicate they are also not bomb proof.
I would expect to get 2-3 seasons of use out of these.
