      This item works fantastic. I like the light sensitive backlight feature. As the room gets dark the lcd backlight adjusts automaticlly. Great product.

      Tenma #72-935 Digital Sound Level Meters Help Nonnative Learners Speak Clear English

      Overall: 5 out of 5

      Students use these meters to practice talking at volumes that will make them easily understood in different settings. MCM's program for ordering and reordering is as user-friendly as any encountered on the Internet. There have been no glitches nor requests for unnecessary information. Best of all, I've never had to provide any detail more than once.

      Great meter for the money

      Overall: 4.5 out of 5

      I bought 3 of these, and for the price they can't be beat. One was calibrated perfectly right out of the box, the other 2 were registering a dB or two low. I couldn't find any documentation online to calibrate them, but after a quick call to the MCM service department I had all the information I needed. The service department was very friendly and helpful. VR1 is the 94dB adjustment, VR6 is the 114dB adjustment. These meters are small and simple, and they're great for a quick SPL reading.

      Wow, what a great tool at an unbelievable price! This works as well as my $200 meter and has an automatic back light that my $200 meter does not have.

      This has become a great tool in our bag of tricks. It is nice to actually see how loud our sound systems get in different enviroments. Even if it is just A-weighted. Comes in handy. Geat product for the price.

      Works as advertised

      Overall: 4 out of 5

      Good price, compact and attractive unit and easy to read. The users manual is...leaves something to be desired. Fortunately, for the novice, there's plenty of information on the Web on the use of a db meter.

      I have had experience with these in bigger form but wanted to try this little guy. Great product for the money and works every time. Even like the light sensor for darker areas. Love it!

      Fast and on the spot

      Overall: 5 out of 5

      This unit is awesome, fits right in my pocket and when i need it, it's there. Also it's dead on, right on he money. I compared readings with a rack mount unit and the same reading were displayed. Great price for an awesome unit!

      Great entry level meter

      Overall: 4.5 out of 5

      This is a great meter for the money. Simple to use, lightweight and rugged. I gave it 4 stars for quality. The power button will begin to fail after 6 months of use. (We power cycle the device MANY times a day) Be advised that the device is A weighted only. For the money, this is a great buy, you will not regret owning it.

      Great for the money

      Overall: 4.5 out of 5

      I give this a 5 for Value, only because the rating guide does not go to 6. I gave it a 4 for features, only because this is an entry level meter and it does not have alot of features. That said, this little thing is an unbelieveable bargain. It literally fits in the palm of my hand, and does a great job. For day to day sound level checking, this unit is great. Just a note: I received my order from MCM for this, the 72-7730 meter and the 72-8400 hand held scope. This is my first time trying Tenma products. So far, they are 3 for 3. I am absolutely thrilled.
