Update (05 Aug 2016): I had contacted Snark support about the problem I was seeing and they said it was not normal, and sent me a new tuner. This one seems fine, but it is also clear (and confirmed by Snark) that they have changed this model slightly. The older one that I got says SuperTight on the face and has a metallic brass/gold power button and bars for LEDs in the note display. The newer one simply says Snark on the face (both say SuperTight on the back), has a yellow power button, and small square LEDs to comprise the note's letter.
Picture of the two models attached while displaying the odd, occasional confusion about the high-E tuning. (The older display is really just as clear as the new one, but the angle I turned the guitar/camera to cut out reflected overhead light makes it seem grayed out a bit.)
Update 2 (21 Aug 2016): I've had a chance to use the newer version tuner in noisy situations and it definitely behaves better than the older model I was originally shipped. I didn't A/B it with my old, blue Snark, but it behaves well enough that I can say it seems to be Ok for my purposes. It does not seem like an improvement, though, so just moving the review from 3 to 4 stars.
one which is currently about $4 less, but I decided to just go for the new one. It is noticeably faster to start up and to respond to the guitar. The display is noticeably better. Brighter, more solid looking. And I like the glossy finish and how the button feels. While these are relatively small details, it's worth having considering how essential this device is and how often it is used by avid musicians. I thought the inprovements might barely be noticeably better but the difference is significant.
The tuner is incredibly accurate with a super tight tolerance. The HZ function is cool but I don't find myself using it often. The pads are soft and don't scratch the finish of my Fender American Strat. Everyone in the band has one and we love them! Awesome tuner!
****UPDATE**** It broke. No clue how it broke. Went to get it out of the guitar case one day and it was broken. See picture attached.
