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.
But there's a problem. The Snark has a poor design and uses low quality plastic that breaks easily, rendering the tuner useless.
The part that clips on the guitar, has a neck with a ball shaped end. That ball fits into a three pronged receptacle. Those little prongs are cheap plastic that break off easily. If any of them break, then the tuner can not pickup vibrations from the guitar, making the tuner useless.
I was never rough with the tuner, yet it broke. Disappointed that Snark uses cheap, breakable plastic.
I have been through TWO of these things so far and they initially arrive fine until I turn the tuner a little bit, then suddenly one of the three plastic pieces breaks off on the tuner part (not the clip) and the tuner is completely useless. I've emailed Snark and haven't received a response back. There Is a manufacturing defect with these things.
The 3 plastic tabs holding the ball joint on the back of the tuner are so weak that you can nudge them and they'll snap right off. There is a manufacturing defect with the batch Amazon has right now or something. I don't know. Do not get these from Amazon. Buy them somewhere else. This is as of 12/28/17 so whatever batch they have is garbage.
I'm not crazy about the larger bars on this model, and it doesn't seem to be as accurate as my older models. At least it doesn't feel that way.
Last but not least, the attachment point on the rear of the tuner for the ball on the arm of the clip has already broken. There are three phalanges, just like the older models, but with one broken, the arm of the clip cannot be held in place. This renders the tuner useless, as it is contact only and that contact is via the clip and arm.
Update, 9-19-17: Adding two stars back for the great customer service, as Snark quickly replaced the broken item. Still like the older ST-2 better, but a Snark is a Snark.
Thinking now there might a design flaw on these?!?!
