    It's a sad day for my Testos..

    So I purchased a set of Testo 557s last spring. I only used them when I really needed fine tuning. I do supermarket service and they were super handy.

    Thirteen months later, they're dead. And just out of warranty by a month

    I am beginning to lose faith in Testo products.

    I've previously purchases a Testo 410. Dead out of the box.. The stupid wholesaler wouldn't even refund me. The only solution was to ship it out for repair.

    My first set of Testo 523s were great, but they died after two and a half years and couldn't justify the repair bill.

    I'm bailing on Testo. What digital gauges do you fellow market techs recommend?

    Actually, I would recommend a DRSA 1200 if they were still available.

    Most of the time in supermarket land, you're measuring EITHER SH or SC, rarely both at the same time.

    The single sensor on the 1200 is the single biggest reason that I chose it for my first DRSA.


    Since they aren't, the AK-900 is where it's at.

    2 year warranty.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    And paying for a bent piece of copper tube with a needle stuck to the end isn't?
