No complaints, easy to use tire guage
Works well and is consistent with my other gauges. It's easy to get the measurement and easy to read. The reading locks on to the screen until your press the button, very handy feature. You can also use the button to slowly drain out excess air. I was surprised at how much more I like to use this gauge over my digital gauges. This gauge is much larger than my cheap-o digital gauges though, so I keep the Accu-Gage at home and still pack the digital gauges in my car.
It looks like this version is no longer made in the USA. If you want the made in the USA version, look for the Accu-Gage M-Series. From what I understand the M-Series has a nicer and larger 2.5 inch screen.
The 60 PSI range is perfect for checking passenger car tires that run need around 30 PSI. A gauge is most accurate in the middle of its range. If you need to check bike, truck,or other higher pressure tires, get a 60, 100, or 160 PSI gauge.

Can't really find anything bad to say
Nicest gauge I've found for motorcycle tires. The right angle head is a must for bikes with low clearance between the stem and the hub. Not quite as easy to use on car tires, but that isn't what I bought it for. Seems to be accurate when compare to other gauges I have. Has large, easy to read markings even for us old guys that can't see very well. Has a nice rubber cover for protection against bumps. It is the type that keeps the last reading until you press the bleed screw so you can use it in areas where it's not convenient to see the face while getting the reading.
Really I can't find anything bad to say about it. I've gone through probably a half dozen gauges and so far this is my favorite. As long as it holds up durability wise, it will probably be the last one I buy for the garage.

#1 TIRE GAUGE
Liked it because it gave an accurate reading and had the rubber protector. Also, the bleed valve and the tip of the hose were very good features. I would recommend this product for anyone who wants to maintain accurate tire pressure. Previously, I had a gauge with a simpler design ( one of those pocket types) and could never get repeatable readings and in many cases the readings were inaccurate.

Allows a much easier read of tire pressure
Hubby loves the added hose length in that he can see the reading much easier and does not have to rely on the old "stick" gauge to maintain pressure reading when removed from valve core stem. He had seen the same gauge used by a technician at the tire shop and had looked for one at a few of the local auto parts stores with no luck. Nice that it was offered on amazon.com just before Christmas since it became one of the stocking stuffer items in his Christmas sock. Had to buy another one for teenage son for his Harley. It is small enough for the saddle bag and precludes borrowing dad's gauge and forgetting to return it.

Great but came assembled improperly. EZ fix
Nice gauge, problem being when it came the needle was on the wrong side of the little "stopper post" so when i plugged it in it wouldn't move past the post obviously. So i pulled off the front cap of the gauge and simply moved the needle over the post. after that it works great! rly easy to use and now im going to keep it in my glove box!!!

THIS BABY IS THE GOODS!! CURED MY FRUSTRATIONS WITH SHORT TIRE STEMS!!
This baby is very well made & accurate. Previously, I was using a metal dial gauge with air release button & only a stiff, straight measuring tube. That was accurate, but trying to read tires with short rubber stems (dad's van), or trying to read tires from an unusual angle in a confined space (in the garage) REALLY frustrated the crap out of me. I even bought a metal extension hose to add on to my old gauge, which worked fine for a few weeks, until it started leaking. I was really pissed! So I decided to get a gauge like this. I researched a bunch of this type & settled on this one. It seemed to be the best quality. It does the trick!! The hose hasn't leaked yet, and I've had no more troubles with bendy short tire stems or taking a reading in a confined space. THANK YOU ACCU-GAGE!!

These are not what they used to be. (revised)
When my well-worn, 20+ year old Accu-Gage finally died, I thought nothing of buying a new one. The new one made it only 2 months (and maybe 5 uses) before a massive leak developed between the hose and one of the crimp fittings, rendering it useless and unrepairable.
The manufacturer claims a lifetime warranty, but you have to return the gauge with $3 for return processing. Why am I paying for them to replace their defective product? That's not happening, and they have not responded to any messages I've sent. I will be looking elsewhere for a new tire pressure gauge.
REVISED: Even though I never got a response to my e-mail from the manufacturer, a replacement hose for the gauge appeared in my mailbox today. It fits and the gauge now appears to function properly. Time will tell if it holds up as well as the original.

Cheap junk like all the rest of them I guess.
This thing fell apart about the 4th time I used it. the end that you attach to the tire valve to check pressure completely separated from the gaugue when I was removing it from the tire valve. Very disappointing after all the positive reviews.

I am happy to say this not the case
I had some misgivings as I thought the gage was stuck on 33PSI when I checked tire pressure my weekly maintenance. I am happy to say this not the case. The gage can indicate as little as 2PSI difference between the wheels. I love the measure and hold function.

Very nice gage.
Very nice gage. Well built and accurate. The pressure readings are repeatable which gives credence to the reading.
I added a 6 inch long piece of heat shrink tubing to the end of the hose to make it a bit stiffer for my needs.
I am a multiple buyer; I have 3 now and a friend bought one on my recommendation.
