I didn't expect much when I bought this unit because of the price and because although South Bend is very known for the lathes it produces, it's not as famous for producing quality measurement instruments. As soon as I opened it I was surprised by the good quality of the caliper. Superb finish and ground fingers (no light passes through when closed!). The feel is also very good with fast motion and responsive thumb wheel. So I decided to measure its accuracy with a Mitutoyo Micrometer, which always gives me the last word. To my surprise, after repeated measurements the caliper consistently and repeatedly gave me accurate measurements with unnoticeable error. No backlash, very clear numbers. In my opinion it is as precise and fast as the best digital calipers that you find on the market.
