Avoid the "This ruined my wall" by putting it in a smart place...
So, I only just got this, but I want to review it anyway.
I bought it to go with this WallPops calendar: http://amzn.to/1xqXQ0b , for which I wanted more colors and something to hold them. After reading reviews on so many dry erase marker caddy/holders, I decided on this one.
I didn't use the magnets, because my calendar is on my wall. What I did use was 1 strip of the double-sided adhesive to place on just the left side of this caddy, and I stuck it onto the calendar on the wall. This way, I avoid the "This ruined my wall because that crap just doesn't come off easily," but I have it right where I need it to color-code my dry-erase calendar.
I think it's great.
It's sticking well.
If you're in my situation, I highly recommend it. (my review for the dry-erase calendar linked above can be found on that page. I recommend it, as well.)

Good markers, cheap caddy.
The markers work great, but I should've read the other reviews - caddy is absolute trash. It's made of a flimsy plastic and the markers constantly roll out of it if I even slightly tap it too strongly any direction. The eraser is pretty cheap as well, but it works. I used the magnetic strips to attach the caddy to a magnetic bulletin board, which worked fine. Not sure how well removal would go, but I'm not really planning to remove it at any time anyway, so it's not a big deal. In hindsight, I would've just bought a kit with markers and eraser (no caddy) or just the markers and created my own contraption for holding them.

Pretty cheap plastic for the caddy
Pretty cheap plastic for the caddy, but I hung it on the wall and it works. Note that the markers and eraser don't "snap" in to the caddy to hold securely. They just sort of "sit" or "lay" in the caddy, so it's not like it's a super secure hold. With that said, there is enough of a lip on the bottom edge to keep them from falling out.

Disappointed. The color on all 4 markers seems to be light. I'd normally say that's the way they always are but I have a 12 pack of both black and red. The black especially in the 12 pack is much darker than the black in this pack. This one is almost grey. Two stars because I like the holder.

The markers and eraser are exactly what you would expect. However, the Caddy is garbage. It is cheap plastic and the markers and eraser are held in only by weak magnets. By the photo,it appeared that they clip in; but they do not. The markers just rest in the slots so unless you intend to mount this on a perfectly level surface where there is no possibility of movement, just buy these items separately.

Cheap, do not work well
Cheap markers that do not work well at all. Stiff points which appear to dry minute by minute while in use. Did not last more than a couple weeks before we had to buy new, better quality ones from local store. Do not recommend

Would be nice if it were re-mountable, somehow
Not too surprisingly, the double-sided tape is good for only one application. When I had to move cubes recently, I took this with me. The tape, which had been stuck to my cloth cube wall, stuck for a little while in my new cube, but eventually fell off. It took a while to remove the tape from the back of it before I could apply some more.

Just as described :) 10/10 would buy again
Just as described.To clarify, the eraser is not magnetic. It is stored on the holder. We used the mounting tape to put it up on the frame off our white board. Works perfectly.

Markers leave a "shadow" on the white board after erasing. I recommend wiping down the (fully erased) board at the end of the day with water to reduce the ghosting.

Bought 2 for work, no complaints
Low profile. Holds the markers well enough they will not just "fall out". I wish the eraser was better than the typical bottom-end Expo eraser they ship with everything but at this price you cannot expect premium accessories.
