Great little motor. I'm coming from a 30lb thrust trolling motor, so it's quite the kick. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars, and I think it's a big one - it may even deserve 3 starts, but there is virtually NO indication between the speeds, and quite often, I thought it was on zero, but the blade was still spinning - Newport, please fix this! Put some clicks at the various speeds, and if nothing else, make 0 more defined! You truly cannot tell if the thing is off, it's too quiet - it's a shame because it's a great little unit. Since I bought the unit a couple of weeks ago, I have used it for about 10 hours on Lake Nockamixon in PA.

UPDATE: After using this motor for about 50hrs, I have an update - I still hold firm on the inability to turn to zero and knowing which speed you're actually on, this should really be addressed by Newport Vessels. Unfortunately after only 6 weeks of use, the sleeve collar that is underneath the motor direction clamp, broke - while I was on the water, rendering me to have the motor 2ft+ in the water at all times. I tried duct taping it, but it would not hold.

I called, and subsequently filled out a warranty claim, with Newport and I'll find out what the outcome is. The entire assembly that mounts the motor to the transom is rather cheap and flimsy, I think. With my old 30lbs thrust motor, it was all metal and held up after many years of use amazingly well. I don't see that longevity with this motor - although, I do have to say, and I don't know if this is because I'm coming from an old 30lbs motor, but the motor on this is awesome. The motor seems to be well made, it's powerful, and has pulled me through weeds often.

I will update this review with the outcome of my warranty claim. Lastly, I will say that the person who answered at Newport was professional, knowledgeable and polite. The will be sending me the replacement parts I need to fix it, along with instructions on how to do so.

This motor apears to be well made and performs very well. Yes, the "clicks" between speeds could be a little more positive and the battery indicator can be confusing because the really small green LEDs can't be seen in bright sunlight. However for the price I can't see anything beating it. I was really surprised at the quality. Does pretty well in weeds too unless you get into really thick stuff.

I was using an older Minn Kota trolling motor, but recently starting having an intermittent problem with the motor cutting out. I decided to see what else was on the market and ordered this Newport Vessels 55 pound thrust motor. My main use for the motor is fishing in a 14ft aluminum boat, making short moves and positioning the boat.
The summary: Upon receiving and unpacking the motor you must attach the prop which took about five minutes. No problems. Transporting and setting up on the boat, no problem. After attaching the leads to a 12V battery the LEDs lit up as expected from 1 through 10.
Using the motor some problems or irritations were noted. When selecting forward or reverse there is no firm click or confirmation that you have reached that specific selection. This happened when selecting, forward, stop, or reverse. When I was running forward and wanted to switch to stop the selector would easily turn past stop and to the first position in reverse. This may take some getting used to, but after a week of fishing I could not get the right feel and I may be used to controlling my older Minn Kota.
When running the motor, the control handle would on occasion slide out another 4-5 inches unexpectedly. It would happen when I was running the motor and possibly (unintentionally) pulling the handle out as waves and wind were going by. I could not find a locking mechanism to keep this from happening.
The LED display was confusing at times and I don't think that accurate. After using the motor for about a week, short uses, perhaps 5 hours of run time, only an estimate. The LEDs continued to display all 10 lighting up. Only once did I see them decrease while running the motor momentarily to 8, but then displaying 10 fully lit LEDs.

Easy to mount. Has lots of power. So far so good.. Best motor around its price range. I use it on my Intex Mariner 4 in the ocean, no issues. I use a 110 AH and it has been used for 2 hours constantly with very little power drain. Most of the time it was on setting 5, full power.

I had never heard about this brand until I searched for trolling motors on Amazon. The motor arrived fast and in good condition. I mounted this on my Bass Raider 10E and there is plenty of power. Everything works as it should and I have no complaints.

Pros:
Battery meter
Good power

Cons:
Mount only so-so
Not a smooth increase in power.

Got this a few weeks ago, took it out once. The motor has functioned well, the battery meter is a nice feature. At full speed it pushed an 8'6" dinghy along at about 4 mph. The downside is that the step from level 4 to level 5 is a bit abrupt - "turbo". This can make the mount pop out, which is a bit annoying.
