Pretty nice  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I am always hesitant to buy anything MFJ as their QC is hit or miss. Because of this I don't think I have owned anything in the last 8 years from them.

But figured for something as simple as an attenuation device I would give it a try.

The first thing I did was take it apart to check the soldering. What I could see looked really good and without unsoldering the BNC connectors I could not look at the other side.

I connected it to my Siglent wave form generator and tried various combinations of attenuation monitoring with my scope and using an online calculator to compare results. Was very happy with the results.
