It take a bit of getting used to (especially in relation to how you angle the mirror for best filed of view), but it works well.
It was easy to fit to my helmet, though I added some black insulating tape to be sure it stayed put. I'd read in another review about ensuring it was fitted so I could use my dominant eye. Didn't know I had one of those but a quick search on the Internet suggested a simple test - hold your arms out in front of you and cross your hands leaving a small triangular gap between your thumbs and fingers. Look at a distant object through the gap with both eyes open. Now close one eye at a time - the dominant eye will still see the object whilst the other won't. It worked for me. The irony is this put the mirror on what logic suggested was the wrong side but I took the advice of another reviewer and he/she was right! The field of view is good enough to see approaching traffic despite it being on the kerb side of my helmet.
Of course 'serious' cyclists laugh, but they probably have good hearing. For me with my hearing disability I consider this to be as essential as my crash helmet! If they tried it, the 'serious' cyclists would see the benefits too.
In use it doesn't vibrate too much on rough roads and most of the time the image is rock steady. Cobbled streets in France were a good test and it was still perfectly useable. I found it fiddly to adjust the first time I used it whilst riding, but it's easy when stopped. If I do need to adjust it whilst cycling I wait for a smooth piece of road before doing it. After cycling it folds neatly against the helmet.
I think this little mirror is great and worth the money!
10 Months later 27/5/2013... I'm still happy with the mirror but the glue allows the mirror to slide around over time. I intend to use some epoxy resin to glue it better.
I find it best to have it adjusted so that you need to turn your head slightly to the right to view behind. This swings the mirror out over your shoulder giving a better view.
Nevertheless, when properly adjusted it can give an idea of what is behind especially before some manoeuvres like turning right which can be dangerous.
If you wear glasses you need to raise your head to look behind. Otherwise the mirror may be above the frame of your glasses and not in focus.
You may need to adjust it each time you put your helmet on as the mirror tends to get knocked out of position.
