Sound — 9
With the tuner, you can set the tuning from E0 (20.6 Hz) to C8 (4186.0 Hz). The tuning accuracy is +/- 1 cent. I sometimes use the tuner for practising, but I would not use it on a gig, because it is very hard use unless it is in a bright room. With the metronome, you can set the tempo anywhere from 30 to 250, and choose between 10 beats, and 8 styles.
Overall Impression — 7
I have been playing guitar for a few years, and I have found it to be quite useful. If this was lost of stolen, I'd probably get the Boss TU-2, because the TU-2 is more durable, and is easier to use in a dimly lit area. I like the ease of use, but I hate how it isn't backlit. I'd recommend paying a little more for a more durable, and backlit tuner.
Reliability & Durability — 6
I would not expect this tuner and metronome to be very durable because it is made out of plastic, and does not look like it was built to withstand a lot. If I was to use this on a gig, I would not bring a backup, because it isn't really necessary. I have dropped it a few times, but that didn't seem to affect it.
Ease of Use — 7
This tuner and metronome is very easy to use. The tuner has an input and output, so you can easily tune without having to unplug your guitar from an amp. It does come with a manual, and a quick read through it will help you get used to the controls. The manual is very brief, but it is easy to understand, and covers everything you need to know about the tuner and metronome. It is not backlit, and only has two LEDs, flat and sharp, so, it is hard to use in a dimly lit area.
