The idea sounds great on paper, but in use it falls apart very quickly. This is one of the worst "guitars" I've ever used. The fretboard and neck are made from plastic, not wood, and the low fret count limits the usefulness of this "instrument" a lot. The device also is very uncomfortable on the strumming hand, and sits awkwardly in one's lap. Using the shoulder strap is no better as the right edge of the device keeps poking into one's strumming hand. Overall it feels extremely unnatural.
The only benefit would be the small form factor which appears to be of great benefit for use on the go, but is rendered pointless by the above mentioned issues. I recommend using a travelers guitar for that purpose as it is playable, made of wood and has a full length fretboard. Otherwise, if size is no concern, any cheap Squier or Epiphone guitar would be a way superior choice to learn to play the guitar.
