By D. Struven on April 30, 2007
First I'm going to run through what came in the box and then I'll describe each item:

1. The digital caliper

2. A spare battery

3. A case

4. Instructions

5. Certificate of calibration

6. Two copies of the MaxTool catalog

First of all, I'm impressed that they hand tested my caliper on 20 different test gauges and included a hand-written table of the amount of error in each coming to an average error of 0.02mm. By the way, the certificate is 0.0055 in. thick :)

Next, the instruction sheet shows a diagram of the tool and tells how to use each function.

There's a spare battery :)

The case holds the caliper and the spare battery. Also, the case is rock-hard plastic with foam padding on the inside.

The caliper itself is awesome. It measures in both inches and millimeters to a tolerance of 0.0005 in. or 0.01 mm. It is capable of being plugged into a computer (cable not included). It has faces for measuring outside diameter, inside diameter, depth and a step (or height). There are three buttons for toggling power, toggling SA and metric and zeroing (or tare).

This is a wonderful buy even if you don't need it. I say this because there will eventually be a time where you'll be doing something and realize that it's the proper tool.

It is no Mitutuyo (which retails for about $90+) and it has one less digit...BUT for most applications this nice little caliper is more than you need. You can have eight of these around the same price! The price figures as a big plus in ranking it, of course, but it works well and it does what it is supposed to do. One small footnote, the steel in the jaws is not very hard (as in a more expensive caliper); it will bend and distort a bit more than you would like it to. But, then again, if you need a top-notch caliper, look at a Mitutoyo or the like. For the price, you can not beat this one.

I bought this unit mostly because I figured I couldn't lose much for so little money. I have since figured it was a great deal. I even recommended my company to buy one for the shop. They were glad I told them. Everyone I have shown this item has told me they are impressed with the quality of build and the very very low price. It came with everything necessary, such as the hard case (good quality) and extra battery. The instructions are all in English and clear. No need to worry about this one. This vendor shipped my caliper on time and I got it in good shape.

... but usually it just produces random numbers, measurements that are impossible (22 inches?!). Apparently the makers are aware of this habit, as the instructions said to wipe the shaft to dry it otherwise you get crazy results... but this unit was not wet. It started doing that right out of the box (as soon as I replaced the battery, because of course the one already installed was dead... so much for the "spare" battery.) Later it started occasionally giving "right" answers (at least the numbers looked reasonable and when I opened it and closed it it returned to zero) but then it reverted to crazy answers. A piece of junk.

Item does everything it claimed and is very precise. It measures depth as well as width and inside measurements. I used it to build a precise piece of furniture where depth and hole size had to be precise measurements. Everything turned out great the first time.

I was skeptical of the quality of such an inexpensive caliper but I decided to try it based on the overall good reviews. When I received the calipers the quality was even worse than I was expecting. Many of the measurement surfaces were rough machined with poor surface finish and flatness. The tolerances were so loose you easily move the measuring surfaces out of parallel and even out of allignment with each other. The sliding action was very jerky and prone to binding. Any one of these issues would cause a problem with accuracy and repeatability - together they make the calipers worthless to me. Furthermore, none of the machined edges were broken (polished) so there were some very sharp edges that would most likely cut your hands as you use the calipers.

When I decided to purchase this caliper I figured even if they were poorly made I would keep them as a backup. When I saw how badly they were made I decided to return them for a refund.

The first caliper we received didn't work, but the vendor responded immediately to my email and sent a new one out the next day. The new caliper works perfectly and is a very good value. This vendor highly recommended for their customer service and product pricing.

This (at the time I bought it) is a $12 caliper. If you have extremely exacting needs stop reading right now, it’s not for you. Please don’t buy it because it’s cheap and then complain that it’s cheap, that doesn’t help anyone else make an informed buying decision.

If, like the vast majority of people who have a casual need to measure the outer, inner or depth size of something occasionally … this is perfect. It is actually a truly astounding value in terms of build quality, materials and usability for the price. If you’ve never owned a caliper, you will probably find uses for it around the house that you never dreamt of. Almost overnight it has become one of the most useful tools I have.

I won’t go in to one word of detail about how this caliper “fails” compared to a $100 tool, or how for only a few dollars more another brand may have some miniscule advantage. At the time I bought this it was not only (by far) the cheapest digital caliper tool at Amazon but it was also their #1 seller. Duh.

The look and feel is one of precision. There are no loose, sloppy-fitting parts. The display is large, clear and easy to understand and turns on automatically as soon as you move the slider. The controls work as expected. The included case acceptably protects the tool when not in use. A pre-installed battery and another spare battery are included. The user instructions are adequate even for someone who never used a digital caliper previously.

I can’t possibly think of any reason I would ever need a caliper that is any more precise than this one, but if I did I would have known that before coming to this page and choosing this one. This is absolutely a 5-star bargain.
