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.

                    Works as designed, it's a little difficult to get the exact tuning, but gets it eventually. It's good for the price.

                    I ordered this (in blue) because it was on sale for half price, and the black one wasn't. I prefer black, but at 1/2 price, blue is good enough (and it is a pretty blue). I received it quickly, turned on and tuned in. I came back to give a review of four stars, because it's not the end all of tuners, but it's functional, nicely sized and very affordable. That's when I found the black one was now less than what I paid. Ah, c'mon.

                    Works well and picks up on the instruments vibrations easily. I use it on my guitars, bass, and ukulele and it works well.
