Love the mug, both of my sons love it. Just shows caffeine can be converted to math using the correct formula. No problems, no cracking, do like a bigger mug when drinking coffee but I probably drink too much anyway. One of the formula on the mug is written incorrectly, if you can't find it right away shame on you. I don't think this detracts from the cup but adds to the allure. How well do you know your famous equations? In ten years you won't remember how much you spent on the cup but you may remember sitting around drinking a cup of coffee and having a nice conversation.

I have received several compliments on my mug. As a chemist, I was surprised to find so many chemistry and physics related equations... so it is not just for the mathematicians! It is great for physicists and chemists as well.

That said, it is funny shaped mug. Short and wide. It holds 11 ounces I believe (and general mugs hold 12 ounces?? - so maybe slightly less volume). The handle is a bit odd as well. It is not very wide, so I put only two of my (female) fingers through it, when usually I would use three fingers on a mug handle, so it could be uncomfortable for some people to hold.

I have had it for several months now and not a single chip, so no complaints against the material, though I haven't tried banging it against the sink yet.

Plus for those people who never clean their coffee mugs, the great thing about having a black mug is that it doesn't show what you were drinking the day before. And there are definitely several professors out there with disgusting white-turned-brown mugs.

UPDATE 08/14: About two years after purchasing this mug, I dropped it on the floor and it broke. So I promptly bought a new one (no brown-stained white mug for me) and it is slightly different. The old one had a clear glaze over the whole mug, so it was shiny black. The one I just received does not, it is more of a matte-gray/black, which I imagine may be to make it look more like a chalk board. Notably, the equations are now the top layer on the mug. I hand-wash only my mug since I just leave it at work, but I was concerned upon seeing this that if you use a dishwasher the equations may wear off (but I can't say for sure since I never put it in a dishwasher). It still has that funky handle I mentioned initially.

My daughter pointed this mug out to me at the George Observatory gift ship, and I knew I had to get it.

It's a nerdy mug. It's nerdy enough that I find myself nitpicking over it:

1. It's not really a MATH mug; it's mostly a physics mug.

2. Einstein's formula for general relativity is missing the mass term, which is forgivable if one assumes empty space, but it's either missing a factor of c^-4 on the right-hand-side, or should drop the G to be in geometrized units.

3. I would have excluded some of the formulae and included others; e.g., the simplest ratio (a/b = c/d) is included, which hearkens back to the ancient Greek concept of commensurability and their inability to deal with infinity and irrational numbers, but i would have instead included the Pythagorean Theorem, which is more useful and more universally known.

However, despite these quibbles (or perhaps BECAUSE of them -- how often will I get nerd sniped by a coffee mug?), I love it.

Clever idea printing mathematic equations on a mug. It has the look of a professor's handwriting on a black chalk board (do these still exist in classrooms?) Math students and geeks love this mug for their morning java. Students also like giving these as gifts to their math instructors. I have one and have never had a problem with cracking (as written in the other review.) Great product!

A friend of mine had this mug, and I liked it so much I asked where she got it and had to get one myself :) My husband and I both have math and physics backgrounds, so I ordered one for each of us. That was several years ago, and they've held up very well through daily use. We both like them a lot, and always get comments on them.

This mug is microwave and dishwasher safe. It's not very noticeable in the picture, but this mug is wider than most mugs. It is also somewhat shorter, but not much. I like the size of it. The quality is good. I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a gift for a math/science lover or if you are considering it for yourself.

I liked the design a lot, but I was only able to drink coffee from it twice before it broke. I didn't hit it or anything, I was just holding it by the handle in the way to the sink when suddenly I only had the handle in my hand. I was just grateful I wasn't carrying hot coffee in it.

The mug is beautiful, I like it a lot, but it's NOT functional. I just took a bunch of pens and pencils and put it in my desk as decoration. It's a shame.

This is the perfect gift for my grandpa, combining two of the things he loves. I was surprised to see the item arrive on my doorstep so quickly and that the mug was in a nice box as well, which will make it easier to wrap. The product lived up to its picture and description. I am very satisfied with my purchase and I can't wait to see my grandpa's reaction when he opens the gift for his birthday!
