Pros: Quality materials (aluminum) and good construction. Has a lock to hold an angle measured. Very readable LCD display with backlight (I don't have to grab my glasses to read the angle)
Cons: It is a little tricky to get a hold on the "arm" to unfold it from the closed position. It is probably because of a lack of attention on my part so I didn't knock off an egg.
Other Thoughts: When I bought this I thought it was an angle gauge that would auto set to level, like a machinist uses. Instead it is a large protractor, over a foot long with a fold out aluminum angle arm. As you pull out the arm the readout displays the exact angle. (dead nuts at 90 and 45 degrees, didn't check other angles) I just built a walk in kitchen pantry and my wife wanted the door to angle over to the refrigerator instead of straight over. This device came in real handy for this job. Not only for measuring the angle to cut the material, but for measuring the angle of the open refrigerator door so it won't knock out the glass in the pantry door. I recommend this protractor to anyone who wants a larger protractor for laying out angles either in the wood-shop or construction remodeling. I don't know how it will do when abused in the shop over the long run, but it seems to be a well made device.

Cons: This item does not work at all. The bubble levels are all off, so you can't line the tool up to get a level line. It says on the package that it has a wall mounting and magnetic base for hands free operation. It does not. It further says that it has a threaded hole for tripod mounting. It does not. It is totally useless.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy this!!!
