Russian translated manual is amusing and a bit hard to read but lucky the device itself is easy and intuitive to use.
Watch out when installing batteries, polarity is marked on the lid! I have confirmed it to go at least up to 490 uSv/h.

+ Very good build-quality
+ Small and reliable
+ Batteries last long
- Back light turns off pretty quickly
- Sounds like a fire-detector rather than satisfying rattle of old Geiger counter.
- Reboots every time you exit the main menu.

Excellent product, promptly delivered. It meets all my needs, which are more from the "amateur scientist" viewpoint. It is clearly a professional level piece of kit.

An easily held geiger counter that works very well indeed, with a well set out flow chart as how to set up and use this apparatus with a well set out warning against staying in an area where very high radiation is located, which hopefully will never need to be heeded.
The bateries supplied are not good enough for a long period of use with constant switching on and off. Two equivalent Duracell AAA batteries are much more effective. Also the panel which must be removed to fit the batteries can come loose. So a strip of adhesive sticky tape over the cover will do the job.
As a geologist dealing with on the whole mildly radioactive acid igneous rocks, this geiger counter serves its purpose very well.

Simple to use, enough guide to get you going in a couple of minutes. You get good readings within seconds, they are adjusted for more accuracy the following minute.

For the price it was very flimsy and not user friendly. The technology was somewhat confusing and not compatible with the knowledge that's available now days. Very poor for the price.
