Metronome made in Vietnam. Available in two colors, blue and black or black and red.
I just buy it.

I have not tried other electronic metronomes, I was looking for a small easy to use metronome, which is not expensive and especially the first beat of the measure.

I fully agree with the very detailed advice given below by lse except for the fast tempo change as simply press and hold either button up and down so that it becomes faster.
In the photos, it looks very correct as when he was in his hands he's still a little "cheap" (plastic not terrible). The small plastic tab on the back that can hold tilt does not seem to be a rock solid.
The volume control knob is very sensitive, rather like "on / off".
The reference note given by the device for tuning is rather painful to listen to and it is serious, the worse it is (the C is particularly horrible). Luckily I did not buy to give me, it must seriously damage your hearing in the long run.
In metronome function, it does its job and that's all we ask. He remembers the last setting (except when changing batteries) and shuts off automatically after 20 minutes of non-use. The two batteries (AAA) required are supplied with the tool.
For full details, look in the "Tips & Tricks" tab, I put the link to the manual in French.

The price / quality ratio is good for really cheap.

I remake this choice because it is effective and cheap.
