I'm just an ordinary guy without any ukulele experience (as of 2014-05-11). I have an acoustic steel-string guitar that I've toyed with on and off over the years but have never gotten to the point of sufficient protective callouses. I spotted the Risa Uke-Solid while browsing portable instruments online. I've seen comparisons with the Traveler Ultra-Lite Ukelele, but the Risa looks to be the nicer instrument for a similar price.

Ukulele/instrument selection criteria I am interested in:

There appears to be quite a lot of information about the Risa available online, so I thought I would organize my research in case it is helpful to others.
