Maybe I got a bad one, but the 1st, E string (the high one), on both of my guitars shows up as A in this tuner, unless I put my hand on all of the remaining 5 strings; and, then, it usually shows an E, but not right away. This quirk just doesn't give me a "warm fuzzy" so I've reverted using the built-in tuner on my acoustic. (Honestly, this is not a step up from my old SN-1, which still works fine, though it lost one of the rubber pads.)
Update (05 Aug 2016): I had contacted Snark support about the problem I was seeing and they said it was not normal, and sent me a new tuner. This one seems fine, but it is also clear (and confirmed by Snark) that they have changed this model slightly. The older one that I got says SuperTight on the face and has a metallic brass/gold power button and bars for LEDs in the note display. The newer one simply says Snark on the face (both say SuperTight on the back), has a yellow power button, and small square LEDs to comprise the note's...
I had an older version that I lost and needed to replace. It worked perfectly fine so I considered buying the same one which is currently about $4 less, but I decided to just go for the new one. It is noticeably faster to start up and to respond to the guitar. The display is noticeably better. Brighter, more solid looking. And I like the glossy finish and how the button feels. While these are relatively small details, it's worth having considering how essential this device is and how often it is used by avid musicians. I thought the inprovements might barely be noticeably better but the difference is significant.
This is my second Snark, I lost the first one. This one seems to be new and improved. Clip is better, and does seem to work faster. It is so easy-to-use, clip on, turn on, a second later it's ready. Takes less than a minute to tune up, un- clip and you're ready to play. I was lost without it. I bought this brand again because I liked the first one. These are good when checking out guitars you might be interested in. Small and fits in my shirt pocket. Price is about as good as it gets. Not sure how it is with anything other than basses as that's what I play.
