Pros:
Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised with this probe. So many probes available locally or on ebay were like 30-40 bucks, so this was a great deal. I wasn't expecting much given the super low price, but it's actually really nice. The x10/x1 feature is cool, and something that I didn't get is that the probe can be either a probe OR a hook. The covering of the probe can be pulled back to reveal a hook, and it will then squeeze forward on the wire and clamp on to it. It shows audio signals just fine, I haven't tried anything above 20khz yet. My scope is only rated to 5mhz anyway, so I'm sure this probe will suffice. The device also has a screw to calibrate the x10 setting, which is nice.
Cons:
I can't think of any. It is maybe a little flimsy, but for this price I could just buy 5.
Other:
Bottomline:
Buy it!
