It's very accurate, doesn't jump around a bunch. I like the feel and look of the plastic; it has a velvety texture to it, and a silvery matte sheen.

The only real problem I have with it is that I tune to 432 Hz, and when I turn it off, it doesn't save the calibration setting. It always defaults back to 440 Hz, so I have to reset it to 432 Hz every time I use it. Other tuners I've used default to the last used setting when turned on. For anyone using an alternative reference pitch or for people in regions where there is a different pitch standard (i.e. European concert pitch is mostly 442 Hz), this is an inconvenience.

The metronome is okay if you always use a 4 beat count per bar. There's no way to adjust the count. Not a problem for me, because I use a metronome app on my computer. I honestly don't understand why anyone would put one on a battery powered tuner, or make it without an adjustable beat count.

My impression is that this was primarily designed to be a cost effective tool for beginning music students. However, it works fine as a tuner-only device for anyone who has a metronome device or backing tracks suited to more advanced playing. I just bought it because my old tuner died, and this one was cheaper than the tuner-only devices. It works well enough for my needs, and is more accurate than my previous tuner.

    I got the blue Snark tuner for the metronome. The tuner is nice. The plastic has some sort of rubbery coating that has a nice deep cobalt color.

                These Snark Yesme tuners are just incredibly good - not just for the price, but in general. They're accurate, reliable, lightweight, and, yes, inexpensive. Sure, they won't remember a custom reference frequency - you have to re-set that every time you use them. But they're so affordable, I put one in the case with every guitar I own, just so I always have a tuner available, regardless of circumstances. Buy two, and give one to a friend!
