I'm at work so I can't remember exactly in matters of the different memory modes, but the device seems to be working properly. It basically clips onto the part where the shaft and grip meet, press the 'grip' button and then just swing.
This is my first swing speed device, so I can't comment correctly if it is accurate or not, i can say that my 9I speed maxed out at 85mph, but I also believe I was swinging out of my shoes with a swing that isn't even the one I use to hit the ball - take that for what it's worth.
I must add that while I was waiting for the device to arrive, I was called by the customer care team at Medicus and they were really pushing some new products with some really great prices offered - I almost bit, but remembered I have rent due The person I spoke to was very understand and was a real joy to speak to because she was a golfer herself and said she didn't use some products mentioned, so I welcomed that honesty.

I use the right tool, for the right job, on the right day
I switched to all graphite shafts to ease chronic tendinitis
I play all of my clubs to a high swing weight, 2* flat, and shorter length
I'm not tall, but do my best to swing close to 100mph
A 10 HC is not representative of how badly I can play on a given day

I don't know if it was 4 MPH off for me because I'm left-handed or if it just worked better for his swing type, but it was great to know. I feel very comfortable with the readings now. I'll try to get another slower swinging right-hander to try it next week.
Oh, almost forgot to mention - the first time I tried it, it was not accurate - it was 2-10 MPH off. I knew it was off, it just didn't feel right. I threw it in my golf bag and forgot about it really. It's was bumped around while I walked the course for 2 days and when I tried it again, I noticed the numbers weren't so erratic. That's when I decided to give it another shot today. And finally, I bought it off ebay for $62 delivered.

Comparing to the Swing Speed Radar device, which sits on the ground next to the ball and thus would measure SS at impact.

HackerD, I am positive it measures MAX SS versus impact SS. You don't need to make impact for it to give you a measure.
One last thing for those of you using it, or thinking of using it: I spent way too much time with this meter, doing nothing but trying to get faster and faster. What I ended up doing was creating this huge casting move that took 4-6 weeks to get rid of....and I'm not sure it's completely gone. If you are going to invest the money in a swing meter, spend a little extra and get a Swing Speed Radar. There are plenty of people on this board that rate it's accuracy very well.

I have a speedstick and I swing it at 120-125mph but I know I don't swing a driver that fast.
I hope this info helps.

Just remember to adjust the shaft length for each club though, which you'll have to do with irons.

of course...the fastest part of the swing is the clubhead. If you put it above the clubhead then what does it read(lol after youve added 20 swingweights points)? To say medicus recommends it below the grip would mean theres a equation to compute the real clubhead speed so you dont mess with swingweight but still have an accurate measurement. Then you have all the different shaft variations of tip stiffness(which would yield variations in "clubhead speed"). It all makes since now...

My drives are usually about 250 yards. When I just take practice swings with it, it seems to give an accurate reading of around 90mph. However, once I tee up a ball and hit with it, I usually have it read 105 to as high as 112. I also recently went into a pro shop for a driver fitting and was clocked at about 90mph on their system. My driver is 45.25in long and I set it to 45in along with the proper height (I believe your height plus 1inch for your cleats).
I have been told I have a quick tempo and probably don't have the most efficient golf swing so I'm wondering if the Powermeter is measuring maximum swing speed? If so, does that mean through lessons and practice, I may one day be able to unlock that extra 10-15mph that the Powermeter is reading?

That's course conditions so add roll, elevation, wind, etc. I'm guessing I carry it 230+ which would be a swing speed of 90. I'm still curious about the errors in the Powermeter having me clocked at 105.
