I finally had the opportunity to compare velocities between my Prochrono and the AliExpress and they were spot-on.  I was getting 950 to 960 fps over the Prochrono and 290 to 293 mps over the "Alichrono".  I can't ask for anything better than that!  Next up will be to shoot through it from inside my shed.  This is where the lighting was giving my Prochrono fits.

Can't complain with that!

I took mine out 2 nights ago and shot through it at 10 pm without any lights except the porch light 40' away and a full moon. Worked fine.

Well fellows I received my speed meter in just 16 days finally got a chance to try it out today I was a little disappointed, I set it up in front of my blue chrony  and there was a difference of 19 to 41fps I'll be trying it again when I can set it up a little differently but I thought shooting thru it first would be better maybe not what do you all think.
Thanks Terry

Were the speeds off by the same amount on both chronos on each shot?

No Sir my chrony was consistent in the 920ish fps and the speed meter was any where from 19 to 41fps off and not consistent in the difference it was showing if that makes sense I can post the speeds if that will help :(

Mine showed low fps if I shot through it with the muzzle too close.

I was wondering about that I'll try again and see what happens Thanks for the info, update I shot my P15 25 thru it and it's doing better my bad I didn't measure the distance but the first 3 shots less than 10fps difference shooting through it and then going straight thru my chrony moved back 11 inches from it an 21-22fps difference moved in to 1.5-3 inches per instructions 14-15fps difference so I can live with for a $27 chrony ;)

Well, I broke down and bought the tripod version today. I've never had a crony before but wanted it to check the Mod 48 I've had for close to 30 years. Want to see if it's performing like a stock standard  m48 should. Thank you to all who have wrote programs to do conversions and translated the chinese manual.

If some clever Chinese company would only produce JSB quality pellets at 1/4 the price, they could rule the world :)
  I believe some Chinese individuals produced swaging molds for custom pellets and it's probably getting close to JSB quality already. Just not at 1/4 price haha

FYI - if you're shooting through the table-top version of the AliExpress chrony you'll find that the sensor will likely be blocking your view through your scope.  I have found that a basic tripod with a head that can angle 90-degrees worked great with it!

It's quite a treat to be able to use the chrony in dim lighting conditions!

I shoot with the clamp-on model turned to the side like that but it changes the POI of my Marauder and Gauntlet down 0.5" at 54 feet.

I've been watching this topic for awhile to see if everyone that bought one of these chronys was happy with it. Looks like it does what it says and reads in most any lighting condition which is really important to me. I always get several errors when using my Alpha Chrony indoors so I just took the plunge and ordered the barrel clamp model for $19.09 shipped. You guys have been a bad influence again!

Shipping must have really slowed for some reason. It did take a while tho. I ordered I think was 12/30 and it arrived in my mailbox on 1/18.
Mine seems to work pretty good. Tested it a day or two after it came in and had no errors during the tests and seem to be in the same ballpark as my Caldwells.
