Based on personal experience, personal needs included in my bias', this is a dud due to it being limited to >35Hz and having an accuracy of +/-3dB.
We deal in a world that is +/-3dB sensitive and this meter does not compliment that standard. One should look for a sound level meter that holds to a tighter, calibrated standard.
(my above is not a slam of the sound level meter itself)
The Amazon reviews are not particularly encouraging either.
After purchasing and using four sound level meters, the Radio Shack, digital sound meter included in this basket of sound meters, this is the meter I settled on.
It's big, bulky and I flat out love it. My one and only complaint, the back light stays on for "ONLY" some five seconds. Very, very, very annoying when measuring in the dark during a movie screening.
