My opinion of the product – 2" R.P.M. Tachometer for Vehicles (0~8000 RPM/DC 12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
Good size, not too conspicuos. Good price also. It seems to work really!
Cons:
Poor visibility of the needle at bright day, and too brillant in the night. Very confusing the setting of the cyl. number. It has a label wit 4-6-8 cyl but under the label the plastic hull is marked with 3-4-6 cyl! In other words, the owner has to guess with try and error to discover where the RPMs match accurately with the real speed of the engine.
Other:
The instructions spoke of a shift light to change gear at setted RPM, and to choose between seven colour lights. I couldnt find neither the "set", "up" and "down" buttons nor the changing of the lights colour. Not very serious.... Ah, and the brand of the tacho, Ket Gauge, dont have a homepage where to ask.
Bottomline:
All in one, a good purchase if it keeps running in order. For this price I cant expect the quality of a Vdo gauge....
