Rating: Good Quality in an inexpensive package
Reviewer: Al V., - View all my reviews
I was a little surprised by the quality of the console. At this price I was ready to accept a little flimsiness or corners cut to keep the cost down. The gauges are easy to read (Im nearsighted) and the console seems pretty bulletproof.
Its really slim and easy to keep tucked away and streamlined. Looks good, too, if you care about that sort of thing.
