For $12.xx I was mildly skeptical on what I was going to receive, but the reviews were decent and I needed a cheap caliper. I also wanted digital one and this is the cheapest digital one I could find anywhere. Most other calipers I was looking at almost $30 then tax (or shipping if ordering online). Well this thing was also Prime shipped so I got it in 2 days with free shipping.
Anyways, on to the actual caliper:
It's made out of metal and feels pretty strong. Again, for $12 I wouldn't have been surprised if it felt flimsy and maybe not built to tight tolerances. This is not the case.
Came with a spare battery AND a case!
It seems to measure out very accurate, but then again, I'm not building missiles so I don't need to measure to 1/10,000 of an inch. I just use it to be a little more accurate than a ruler. One example would be measuring the inside bore of a carburetor.
I bought it last summer and have actually ended up using it alot more than I thought I would. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
