5.0 out of 5 stars Best value for cheap calipers
If your job depends on super-fine precision and accurate measurements at all times, invest in a good pair of $100 calipers. But, if you just need a pair of calipers for general use and your budget is $30 or less, get these. All of the calipers under $30 are essentially the exact same Chinese-made calipers, just rebranded with a different logo. So you might as well get the...

3.0 out of 5 stars Battery was dead
Battery was dead but it came with a spare. They are not high quality and you need to watch they will slip and give you an incorrect number if you go to fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best value for cheap calipers, February 22, 2014

This review is from: 6-Inch Stainless Steel Digital Measuring Caliper with Large LCD Screen (Watch)
If your job depends on super-fine precision and accurate measurements at all times, invest in a good pair of $100 calipers. But, if you just need a pair of calipers for general use and your budget is $30 or less, get these. All of the calipers under $30 are essentially the exact same Chinese-made calipers, just rebranded with a different logo. So you might as well get the cheapest pair you can get, which at the moment seems to be these.

Use these slowly and they are accurate within 0.002" (or 0.05 mm). Too fast, and the digital meter will simply not be able to keep and loses a few hairs in accuracy. At under $10 and with more than a $90 difference for the next best thing, I believe that is a fair tradeoff. With that point in mind, I can wholeheartedly recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN IT, March 21, 2014
This review is from: 6-Inch Stainless Steel Digital Measuring Caliper with Large LCD Screen (Watch)
HERE IS A HUGE TIP:

Whenever you buy one of these cheap calipers, clean the face of the ruler with alcohol.

I bought the same model on ebay. Out of the box, the calibration would shift by +/-0.05mm when slid from one end to the other.
I cleaned the face of the ruler with alcohol like it said in the somewhat understandable instructions.
Now the calibration NEVER shifts. Always goes back to zero every single time.

Like the others said, the sliding action is a little bit crunchy. I would recommend a little bit of grease.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but has some drawbacks, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 6-Inch Stainless Steel Digital Measuring Caliper with Large LCD Screen (Watch)
The battery that was installed when I received it was dead. Luckily there was a spare battery but unfortunately I have not been able to find anyplace that carries this particular battery (Walmart, K-mart, Lowes, Home Depot etc.).
The only other thing that is kind of aggravating is the battery cover keeps falling off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead battery on arrival. Replaced with fresh one. Random numbers on display., March 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 6-Inch Stainless Steel Digital Measuring Caliper with Large LCD Screen (Watch)
Did not expect much but this is a pretty poor quality even for a knock-off. Came with a dead battery in it. When a new one was put in random numbers are displayed on the screen. i.e. every 0.25seconds a new random group of numbers is displayed. This happens continuously no matter what buttons you press. 'gear' is crunchy even when rolling slowly. Going to return them to sender.

I bought a similar model a few years ago, but that one got lost recently, so I came and purchased this one. It works great and gives consistent results, plus the hard case is very well made. No complaints here.

amazing bang for the buck, unless your spending $300 you might as well buy the cheapest. They work pretty good, esp for the price.

down side, one of the batteries arrived dead, the other lasted about a month. But it was $8 shipped what do you expect lol.

1.0 out of 5 stars Piece of junk., May 13, 2014

Every time I zero it out then open up the jaws to take a reading it goes back to zero. I can not use them at all. Useless. After I open up the jaws and close them with an item to read it jumps back to zero. I would not recommend it to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Better mouse trap, gone bad., April 17, 2014

This review is from: 6-Inch Stainless Steel Digital Measuring Caliper with Large LCD Screen (Watch)
little piece of the battery cover fell off and it took twenty minutes to put it back on! Now I have to hold my thumb on the battery compartment to get it to work. Accuracy is good, and you can use it as a manual caliper, the thousands are marked in tenths and you need to work the math. Go with something a little better.
