Has worked flawlessly over the last two years since I bought it here on sale, was definitely a good value and I would recommend it to others.

I bought this to determine how far off my motorcycle's tach was. It has remarkable pickup of nearly any bright, reflective surface such a chrome or semi-bright aluminum cast so be careful to provide decent background surface isolation. Don't work about running out of reflective tape. I was able to get great results using Testor's silver model paint painted directly on to my engine's flywheel. You can accomplish the same results by painting a spot on a piece of masking tape and sticking the tape to whatever you are reading from.

The down-side of the device is that it is pretty much contoured for hand-held use. I had to rig some velcro to it so that I could strap it to a tripod (leaving me with less to juggle why adjusting carberators). The strapping does make it a little difficult to manipulate the buttons while still being able to see the readout. Don't get me wrong, using this as a hand-held works quite well but does require a steady hand if you are shooting through a narrow space. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with it for the little $$$ it cost.

The laser tach works as well as you'd expect, measurement range with the reflective tape is 6 feet or more (not sure where Amazon's 500mm description came from, but it's wrong).
The device sends out a beamed laser spot that gets reflected by the tape or any suitably reflective surface. The sensor in the tach picks up the pulses and performs the measurement, displaying in 0.1 RPM steps for speeds up to 999.9 RPM, and 1.0 RPM steps from 1000 to 99999 RPM.

3 AA batteries for economical use with common rechargeables, after the three supplied batteries eventually get used up. They should last quite a while though, using only 40mA during the measurement. The display only comes on when the buttons are actually depressed, so it uses only the minimum amount of battery power- also means it cam't be used for extended unattended measurement however. It has a min and max RPM function, showing the variations in the speed from the measurement.

If you cut a square off from the two strips of supplied reflective tape and just use some scotch tape to temporarily attach it to the object being measured, you can reuse it over and over-
To measure things like fans, you could simply hold the tape behind the fan, and beam the laser through the rotating fan blades. The fan blades will chop the light signal to provide the measurement. You'll need to simply divide the measurement by the number of fan blades, since it'll read multiple counts per revolution.
Very neat item to have around..

Bought a number of these for work. They function well. Can't beat the price. Payed $70+ last year for the same unit. The plastic case seems flimsy, so we'll see how they hold up in the field. Also, I don't expect the included vinyl plastic storage/travel case to hold up very well. Otherwise, good product and great price. Will buy more as needed.

Doesn't get any easier. Apply reflective tape (included), point and shoot. In some cases, the reflective top is not necessary.

I'm using it mostly for checking speed of my woodworking equipment (lathe, drill press, router, etc.)

Used it twice and always stored in the shipping case. Third time it emits laser but won't count revs. No warranty that I can find and no address for mfgr. on product, packaging or paperwork. Pretty expensive for a two time use item.

I never thought such a product would become affordably available for the home mechanic so I was delighted to find it. I have not been disappointed either in its accuracy and ease of use. I've appreciated the suggestions in the other reviews, too, as I've found the reflective tape to be less sticky than I'd expected. Also, I think it could have been designed with a better battery cover. I'm reluctant to leave the battery in for extended periods as it will corrode, but removing the tiny screw is a bit of a hassle. I've decided to tape the cover closed. This tool sure is a welcome improvement over the old Brigg's vibratach I was using! Cheaper too!

This is truly a product that fits its price range. Its cheap, and does not come with any frills or features. But, it works, and is very easy to set up. For the price, its a great buy.

EXCEPT one thing. For our testing I found it annoying there was no setting to take a measurement, just a button that had to continuously be pressed for it to read RPMs. We ended up taping the button down, which worked well enough. Of course, I should have known this before I bought it.

Good product for what you pay

I've used tachometers over my adult life for a variety of tasks, both contact and non-contact. This one was purchased for measuring the RPM of some machine tools including a drill press.

For this type of measurement the tool worked well for me. I found that in the case where the shaft was being measured some times the reflective tape provided insufficient contrast and I had to apply a piece of non-reflective tape to act as a background. This is a normal expected characteristic of these devices.

One thing I was a bit disappointed about was that the device was not supplied with alkaline batteries. The old style zinc-carbon batteries are good enough to get you up and running but for a device of this nature that may be in storage for a long time between uses I think that they are a poor choice because they don't remain potent for long periods in storage and often corrode ruining the device they are stored in. So replace the supplied batteries ASAP with alkalines, or at least remove the batteries when storing your tachometer so that you won't have it ruined by corrosion.
