Not so good  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Got the 941 B at a hamfest. Seemed to be OK. I use this tuner with a dipole for 20M and 40M and a Yaesu 757 running 100 watts. Worked for a while, got low SWR. Noticed some burning smell, opened it up. The inductor switch was nicely burned on two positions, of course the positions I used. Examining the switch, I noticed that the switch contacts are very small. I do not switch the inductor with the rig keyed, I an surprised that there was burning at all. I think the switch is too small for a 100 W rig, perhaps with a QRP rig it would last.

Nice compact and does the job  Time owned: more than 12 months
The MFJ-941B does very good to use for the input of amplifiers. It also works well for any antenna not taking over 200 watts and also has a power meter to watch power levels from 0 to 30 and 0 to 300 watts.

I see many on Ebay going for $20.00 and up. The bad feature is that the switching of tuned to no tuned antenna is in the rear, but I still give it a 5. Tunes great from 160 to 10 meters with my CF Zepp. Will be great for QRP as well.
