        I bought a cheap one. You can't tune the guitar up from slack strings with it. It doesn't seem to pick up the B-C-C# before the low E etc, but for stage tuning when you're a little sharp or flat, it's great.

            They have one biiig disadvantage: They are way too handy.
            I bought 3 - well knowing that I will lose/forget/misplace them.
            But they are great, no fuss. They allow you to tune even onstage and even in noisy environments. I prefer them over the tuners built into modern day preamps.

                They are handy but fragile. I tend to use it and then put it back in my pocket when I am done simply because I have seen too many of them get knocked of the headstock and broken. I have yet to lose mine. I have accidentally left it on and killed the battery... I also have two other tuners as well. A Behringer TU100 Chromatic Tuner which is basically a clone of the Boss TU-3 floor pedal style tuner and a cheap generic mini LED screen tuner that has a built in mic and input for electric guitar. I find it's the most accurate of all and I think it cost $8. You can never have too many tuners I guess...:idk:

                  Some good, some convenient, some not so good, some not so convenient. Snark, Intelli-500(or it's counterparts) Good, convenient. Peterson Stroboclip, great if you like extreme tuning and know how to work around a strobe-like interface, but pricey at 55-65 bucks. Snark is cheap though, and last long and work well.

                    Another vote for the Snark. So much more convenient.

                        Snark tuners are great and cheap - you can pick them up for $9 - $12 shipped.

                        They work on acoustic and electric with no problem.

                          Handy, but you will grow dependent on them, and become unable to tune without them. Tune the old fashioned way occasionally.

                            The diamond shaped one is not real accurate (Intelli 500, also found with other names)
                            The triangle shaped one is pretty good (Pitch Pocket)
                            I really like the oblong one but it's kind of pricey (Peterson)
                            I tried the round one belonging to a friend and it's pretty good too (Snark)

                              Love my snark!!!! It's not nearly as accurate as my Peterson VS-2, but for busking, it's way more convenient. Nice around the house too. I don't have to turn the TV down to retune.
