Very nice, and very accurate, but I would like to see the display indicate exactly how many cents over or under the exact pitch any note is. This would be very convenient, at least in setting up guitars, which is one of the tasks for which I use this. The value can be determined, but it is a little bit of a hassle. Otherwise, I am 100% satisfied with the purchase. Does everything I expected and then some. A fine instrument.

I have always been interested in setting up my guitar and piano accurately as well as having the means to service reed instruments. Although I'm not on a professional level, I've found that very high and very low notes tend to confuse other types of tuning devices, this was achievable with the Peterson 490 Strobe Tuner.
