Review Date: Mon July 30, 2007 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $75.00 | Rating: 9 
Pros: Portable, accurate, multiple scales (O, S, HO, N)
Cons: Your buddy wants to borrow it, hard to find on the web
Pros Smile
+ Portable, use it anywhere on your layout where the base can allow it to set or use it on the test track.
+ Easy to loan to friends or use at a clinic.
+ Accurate
+ Easy to use, turn on power, run a train through it
+ Easy to change scale with a paper clip (O, S, HO, N)
+ Low power consumption
+ No wiring or assembly other than battery installation.


Cons Sad
- Your buddy can borrow it and you have no defense for not lending it to him
- Does not work for Z
- Does not turn off automatically so the batteries can run down
- Diligent search of the internet, only found them listed on the Caboose Hobbies website (Http://www.caboosehobbies.com) in Denver, which is where I purchased mine. May be elsewhere, but I did not find them.
- Can't have it permanently on the layout without it looking pretty not OK!

Review Date: Tue June 12, 2012 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Price you paid?: $64.95 | Rating: 10 
Pros: Portable and accurate!
Cons: Poor quality control
I got mine from Ulrich for 64.95. It's nice and accurate although the thing looks like it was put together sloppily. The electronics part and the reflective stickers aren't on straight. I don't know how that would throw off accuracy, but it would be off the same for everything so it's still ok. I'm not terribly concerned about the actual speed since I'm using it for speed matching locos on DCC

Pros: The circuit has auto off on the new version, which as far as I can tell costs the same as the older one. It just works like it should.
Cons:
Auto off so the batteries don't run down so quicklyl.
