Don't bother  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The pros:

- Cheap
- The light worked

The cons:

- everything else!

When unboxed the meter was off-scale low -- not a good sign. I tried turning the meter calibration screw which lifted it a bit, but its rest point was still well below zero.

I couldn't get a single sensible reading out of the thing. Input power made it twitch a little; in Cal mode I could get about 1/3 full scale; SWR always read 1:1. My antenna isn't that good!

Returned immediately for refund.
