Most of the cheap ones I have tried have not had the quality and features of this one, I didn't keep any of them. I bought this one as a gift and kept it. Ha!
It has a pop-out stand, I wish they all did. The lights that indicate sharp and flat vary in illuminosity to illustrate the degree the tone is sharp or flat. I wish all tuners did this, as well. I own another chromatic tuner, lacking those two features, but otherwise equal, and it cost more 10 years ago.
This tuner was immediately accurate. You can tune to the lights and needle or it can also play the tone and you can tune by ear.
This is the cheapest tuner of this quality I have seen. I didn't need one but it is handy for any instrument.

    Comments about DeltaLab CT-40 Chromatic Tuner:

    I've owned about 20 different tuners over the last 40 years, from the pricey strobes to the cheap guitar tuner. This little baby is far and away the best, most accurate tuner I've EVER used. I love how quickly it can be calibrated back and forth from 440 to tune a steel accurately and quickly

          This tuner is just what I needed to tune my harpsichords and clavichords, and at a bargain price.
          It cuts down the time it takes to tune by ear by about sixty percent!
          I am really glad to have this tuner because now my tunings are quicker and more accurate.
