The ART SPL-8810 decibel meter gives consistent results and
is very easy to use. The backlight is quite bright. I like
the fact it has 2 broad ranges (lo / hi) and not 4 or 6
narrow ranges like some other meters out there.
The unit feels very solid and high quality, however
the windshield comes off too easily. Not a problem really.
My only real gripe is the auto-off feature. The unit turns
itself off about 15 minutes after you turn it on,
regardless if you operate the buttons in the mean time.
For the price ($70) I can't complain. Other meters at this
price do not have any kind of standards conformance.
This unit shows IEC651 / ANSI S1.4, and Type 2
(type 1 is the most accurate, but most expensive too,
type 3 is the cheapest and worst accuracy).

Note: I opened it up and saw DT-805 printed in the circuit
board (actually DT-805A-4).
It looks like this is a rebranded DT-805 meter by CEM
company. The Nady DSM-1 and Extech 407732 look to be the
same as well.
These are great and pricey meters, and the ART brand has
the cheapest price of them all for the same thing.
Go for it!

When I purchased this sound meter, my objective was to balance the speakers of my 7.1 theater sound system. The problem is that the cheaper sound meters don't have a flat response curve across the frequency spectrum and thus, I was looking for an affordable (key word) sound pressure meter that would get me close to a balanced system such that the system would sound good.
I tried the $49 Radio Shack meter but found that it lacked sufficient bass sensitivity that the subwoofer level was way off.
A friend offered his $1 sound level application for his i-phone but it was even worse than the Radio Shack meter.
I then tried the American Recorder meter and was able to reach a sufficiently good balance that the system sounded good - at an affordable price. I won't tell you that this meter has a flat response curve, especially in the bass region but it is sufficiently sensitive to the subwoofer frequencies that I was able to get close to balanced. Probably the $350 meter may have been better but, I have a simple home theater to keep in balance along with some other sound applications that I didn't need perfect response (and I didn't want to pay $350 (remember the key word), if I didn't have to). This meter was certainly good enough to get all the 6 surround speakers balanced - especially the center channel against the surrounds and get the sub-woofer into the ballpark wherein with a few manual adjustments on the sub gave me a great sounding system.

Works better than expected, very easy to read with 2 settings (dBA & dBC) and is tripod mountable for ease of use. I purchased it to measure and document the sound coming from the condo above me. My readings provided the tangible evidence needed to present to an attorney to pursue legal action against my neighbor. This device is of high quality and less expensive than comparable models.

Very satisfied with the product. Not a high-end meter but solid. Doesn't feel cheap. I got it to measure sounds around the house (including a noisy furnace I want to get rid of). I have measured different sounds from a low of 34.2 dB to a high of 112. The two ranges make it easy to select the correct range. Easy to switch from A to C or from fast to slow time weighting. A very quiet Max/Hold button captures the highest sound it detects and just moves it up if the sound gets higher but doesn't go lower until you turn that button off.

I checked this the other day against an expensive, calibrated instrument. It was only about 1 dB off. Easy to use, convenient 2-range scale, has no more than the necessary options. A bargain at the price.

.
i bought several different spl meters to try
as my old radio shack is getting intermittent after 40 years
.
pros

the price is cheap

very easy to use

works well

very easy to turn on and select settings

goes down to 30dB which is better than my current spl meter

does not turn off like two of the others do

has max hold capability

can choose a/c weight
and fast/slow

has thread for tripod mount

.
cons etc.

no storage box just a plastic wrapper and cardboard back

no real manual - read basics on the back of the card

uses 9v batteries
one other similar unit use AA which are more convenient

no way to calibrate

manual is not really adequate

can use ac voltage adapter but does not
tell you directly what kind of wallwart
can infer from markings on unit

.
misc

there are many meters here that look basically the same
except for the case - sinometer is one with different color
the HDE and NEEWER versions are identical
i ended up with two of the same meter thinking they were different

this one (ART ) has a different button orientation but otherwise seems to be a cousin to the other units
perhaps these are made in the same chinese factory with different labels

sinometer is the best (see that review)
this one - american recorder technologies from music 123 is second place and slightly better than these two similar ones (hde and neewer). see separate review for others
.
recommended - yes -

sinometer is imho somewhat better but you should like this unit if you dont need the other features that sinometer has
and this one is cheaper
