Aputure Vs1 - Is it worth?

Hi there! A person sells his Aputure VS-1 with the sunhood, mount shoe, cables etc.... in mint condition for 100€ shipped. I switched to a Panasonic GH2 (which I love) but the display is so damn tiny and low resolution than 1. Is difficult to nail focus 2. Difficult to see in daylight 3. I can't proper exposure when I shoot in black and white so...the main goal for me to buy it is to be able to see what I'm really recording, have a closer look to what I will be seeing on my PC monitor later (of course, to make good focus too). I would like opinions based on use and If it is a good deal. Greetings!

I had it and had to get a different one. Namely, being a first time field monitor buyer I did not know what to look for. So after buying the VS-1 I sold it and bought a monitor that has the following features built-in: focus peaking, exposure zebra, histogram, and false color.

If you don't need those features than this monitor would probably work for you. But! The chances are that you do need those features :)
