  • Nice little electronic version of the DX original

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Good price, reasonably accurate (useful for stock selection rather than machining tolerances), and clear, wide viewing angle display. Also the ability to switch between Metric and Imperial is always very useful!

    Cons:

    For this price point, there seem to be no disadvantages. The older Dial Gauge version had a greater capacity (25mm), but 20mm is OK for almost all modelling needs. Not carbide faces (but you'd not expect carbide tips anyhow!)

    OtherThoughts:

    Spare AG13 battery was a nice thought: Serial SPC output (waiting for DX to do an SPC to USB conversion cable), strong little box, well padded, arrived completely pristine!

    Bottomline:

    Excellent buy for the price. Seems accurate enough (but very slightly prone to drift). Certainly pocket sized, and for "rough" measurements probably as good as a micrometer, and lots faster.
