If you just leave it on, it will drain the battery and die.

I find the flat/sharp tuning indication to be inconsistent with the CT30, but very accurate and consistent on the CT10.

I wish I could review the precision and usefulness of this clip-on tuner, but alas, I cannot.

Initially I really liked the unit - it works as advertised. It's easy to use, easy to read and very handy to have. I use it to tune my classical guitar.

About 2 weeks after the purchase the unit stopped working. It would turn on but the entire display would stay lit constantly - it stopped reading the vibrations and stopped reacting to any of the control buttons. I took it back to where I bought it (locally) - they exchanged it for a brand new one.

The second unit worked for about 5 months (very light, periodic usage). I never dropped it or abused it in any way - same thing happened: one day you go to turn it on and it comes on and stays on no matter what you do with the buttons.

If you just leave it on, it will drain the battery and die. You have no choice but to take out the battery. When you try to put the battery back in, it powers up immediately without you pressing the On button. It will just stay on but does not register the vibrations at all - in short, it's broken and I'm not going to get another one. Too bad, when it worked it was great, wish it would just keep working but no such luck.

I am happy with this tuner. I don't think I'd like this type of technology applied to a guitar tuner. I tried a cheap one and it was interesting, so I got this one hoping it would be slightly better. I do like it better that the ones half this price.

I usually do not write reviews, but having had three problems, I made an exception for this product. I purchased the tuner about six months ago at Guitar Center. When I told the sales person that I needed a clip-on tuner, he recommended this one because he said it was the best one they had in the store.

Problem 1: About three months ago while I was playing my guitar, the tuner simply catapulted from the head of the guitar. Upon retrieving it I noticed that one of tabs on the clip section simply became detached. When I examined the tab more closely, I noticed that the plastic material was soft and crumbling. When I returned the tuner to the Guitar Center, the sales person was somewhat reluctant to replace it, likely concluding that I may have possibly abused it, but eventually replaced it.

Problem 2: As I recall, even when the original unit was new, it was slow to respond to low E. Recently, with the replacement unit I noticed that I really have to pluck the low E quite hard to get the tuner to respond. As a matter of reference, I would estimate that I now have to pluck the low E about three to four times as hard as the other strings.

Problem 3: Recently I also noticed that the swivel on the clip section was getting loose and that it would barely hold the display section in place without turning. Fortunately, I was able to detach the rubber pad sufficiently to access the retaining screw and tighten it slightly.

Regarding my rating, considering (1) that this tuner cost $29.99, (2) that I recently I purchased a new Snark SN-5 tuner for $11.

I really liked that it was really easy to find the exact type of tuner that I was looking for. The tuner came in good condition and works great.

Unless you like gambling, stay away from this tuner. I bought it as a second tuner. It was a bit of an impulse purchase at Guitar Center. The guy at the counter said it was great, so I rolled the dice. I lost. (BTW, I also have a five year old Meisel MCT-7L tuner with which I've never had any issues.) The CT-30 worked fine when it was new, but after a few months it began acting up. I have had the same problems others have had: off button didn't work (wouldn't turn off unless the battery was removed), quick draining of battery, and finally, no function at all. I've tried three new batteries and it turns on briefly and then goes dead. I will never buy anything from DeltaLab again.

Delighted with this new chromatic tuner - its accuracy and ease of use. Didn't think I could mount it on my autoharp or dulcimer but discovered I could. Very pleased.

Korg and Fender both make clip on tuners that cost 25-30% less and come with a battery. The DeltaLabs is absolute junk. This is one of those high profit-margin items certain big chain music stores love to sell you to make their money on. Out of the box, no battery. I gently opened the battery chamber on the the little round plate will not go back in. Bought a battery and taped it on, it tunes ok. This is a horrible, horrible product by a company that (in my assessment) should not be competing. Buying this tuner is like paying $20 for a fast food budget. It's that ridiculous. The Korg Product is superior in every conceivable way.

I recently bought a CT30 tuner as a spare and find that its not as sensitive as their CT10 model.

Most of the time this CT30 wont even recognize the high-G string of my banjo, at any volume.

I find the flat/sharp tuning indication to be inconsistent with the CT30, but very accurate and consistent on the CT10.

I spoke with a salesperson at the local guitar store, and he said several other people had reported similar problems with the CT30.

UPDATE: My wife tried to use the CT30 last night, but it seems to have died... We've only used it a dozen times or so.
