Good:

Easy to see
2 axis of adjustment
price

Bad:

1. Battery life. I went through 2 batteries with only a few uses of the tuner. It appears this unit drains the battery even when off. I measured this with a precision micro-amp meter (Model MV-852). When the tuner is on, it draws about 7.4mA (milliamps). This is no problem. However, turned off it draws about 72uA (microamps). I think excessive compared to other similar tuners. To keep it short, if you do the math you get about 90 days battery life with the tuner OFF. Less if you use it. I either got a dud, or the sleep mode current is high on this unit. I now plan to take the battery out if i'm not using it once a week or more.

2. Positioning. Even though it has 2 axis of rotation it seems it's hard to get it level with your eyes / vertical to the ground when used on a guitar, bass, or especially a violin. This is no big deal if you dont mind viewing it sideways.

3. Modes: I wish there was a seperate on/off button and Mode button. It's quite easy to click the on/off button an extra time on power up and get into a mode you don't want.

          I like this tuner because I can use it on guitar, bass, violin, ukulele, and more. It clips easily onto the headstock and it lights up. It makes tuning my 12 string very easy. I wish I had had one of these 15 years sooner!

            Bought this for my daughter. The LCD screen only moves in one direction, which makes it difficult to see once it's clipped onto the headstock. I'll stick with Korg.

                        I play bass and use this instead of the plug in kind to tune my bass. What I like is its quicker to use it works for many different instruments and when its on it gives you a bright green light on the whole face of the tuner to show your in tune. I checked it with my korg tuner and they agree so it works good. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is I want to see what the battery life is like and ive only had it 2 weeks

                          A regular tuner was impossible to tune the bass because of ambient noise...needle would swing wildly. This you can set on "B" for bass and it locks right in with a bright green screen when you're on key.
