Top critical review
Suave idea, average price, average execution.

I've got the matching Nokia Lumia yellow 920 for this, it was an obvious purchase to use one of the phone's big advertised features. First thing to note is that yes, this tech works, you can charge your phone wirelessly by resting it on the top and showing it off gets the typical "that's awesome!" response.
The pro points of this product are all pretty obvious in the title and page description. It's somewhat unreliable and relies, I believe, on both parts phone and charger being completely clean. This may sound obvious or for-the-course when reading this review, but in practice keeping the back of your phone skin-free in order for this product to work can get annoying long-term. When it doesn't work due to this, the phone repeatedly unconnects from the charger, you'll leave it for 20 minutes, come back and it won't have charged more than 5%. When the connection is clean however, you can charge the full battery in 1-2 hours with this charger. I have no idea how this works through a case, so far I don't use one on my phone.
When your phone dies to 0% battery, it takes longer to charge to a bootable level again than with the wired chargers. I once sat outside a flat waiting for 25 minutes for the phone to charge with this charger so I could call someone to let me in after a night out. That was frustrating.
The second clear downside is the ease with which you can knock the phone off when moving around. I'd suggest considering paying more for the stand-up charger which is available in only black and white, before you buy this, for a massive improvement on quality of life. It's still a decent product, but it can be a bit (read: really) annoying at times.
