Please ignore the other 1-star reviews...they didn't know what they were doing...this gauge is perfect!,
This review is from: Accutire MS-4021B Digital Tire Pressure Gauge (Automotive)Please ignore the other two users that gave this gauge only one star because it only read 28.5 psi. I find it amusing, but sad, that they didn't realize that there was a protective sticker on the screen that read 28.5. If you peel off that protective sticker, then you get a nice, bright red backlit number displaying your true tire pressure. This gauge works great! The display is amazingly easy to read, and it is also simple to get a good reading.
Prior to owning this Accutire model, I had a 7 year old Accutire digital gauge that finally broke. WIth that old model, it was much harder to get a reading without air leaking out. With this new model, if you just push the gauge straight into the valve stem, you easily get a solid reading without leaking air. The old model's display wasn't backlit either, and I was truly impressed with the large, bright numbers on this new model. I'd highly recommend getting this gauge, as it has all the functionality you need, at a very reasonable price. I like having accuracy to 0.5 psi, and I never use non-digital gauges unless I have no other choice. I also tested this gauge with back-to-back measurements, and it was accurate every time. You won't regret this purchase...

This review is dead on. Good guage and easy to use. MY old one died and this made the most sense after checking some reviews. I laugh at the 1 star reviews. 28.5........wow?!?!?!

Thank you so much for this review. I have always had a problem with air leaking out and getting incorrect readings so I was looking for something that would be foolproof. On the basis of your review, I have decided that this is the one. Thank you!

Are there really people complaining about the 28.5? After a brief look, it seems that most of them are complaining because they don't know how to use a pressure gauge properly (pressing it firmly and directly onto the stem so that no air leaks out, and holding it on until the gauge takes a reading) or they possibly received a defective unit.

I've never seen so many idiots, thinking the tire pressure is 28.5! And these people are out there amongst the rest of us drivers.

I read elsewhere that they stopped putting the demo sticker on them due to customers getting confused.

How a device displays in 0.5 psi increments but also state that accuracy is 0.05psi.
Then your accuracy is 0.25psi assuming that it will round down to lower or up to upper limit..
