Great value, very accurate – Digital 150mm Caliper Reviews

Very accurate, includes batteries, can display millimeters or inches, comes with decent padded hard plastic case, has thumbscrew, zero button, slide retainer, depth gauge, all the common features.
Slide is just a tad rough, case is a bit too flimsy for "toss in the toolbag" handling. Case arrived with a broken corner but does not affect much.
I compared the measurements of the clamp (outside diameter fingers) to the shims we have at work. I did not get a chance to test the ID fingers, but it should be just as accurate. In inches .060, .250, .750, 1.250, and 2.50 all came out perfect, not even one thousandth off. I hope it will stay calibrated so well.
Great value. Comparable calipers would cost $30 to $50 and this one -- so far -- is as good as the digital Mitutoyos at work. Very accurate.
