Excellent customer support Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have owned the SX-1100 since 2009 when I purchased a Kenwood TS-2000. Shortly after (<6 months) the display backlight and LED band indicator all stopped working out of the blue with very little use.

I called Diamond in early May 2018 to talk to someone about what I could do to fix the meter and the tech I spoke with was EXCELLENT. He gave me detailed instructions on how to get the meter apart and what to look for that may have caused the problem. In addition, he sent me two replacement lamps for free.

I am pleased to have this experience with Diamond and will continue to buy their products because of this one customer service experience. Most companies would have me send the product in for repair or charge for the parts.

Thanks Diamond!

Good Meter Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
It's not a Bird but it will give good results at 1296. This is the second one from DX Engineering the first one had some issues sent it back and the replacement is as advertised.
