My 2 cents:

 

I received mine late in '15, and the only issue I had was it seemed to chew through batteries quickly, but after changing the bag pocket I stored it in, the battery life improved. I can only guess that the bag storage room at the golf club gets pretty cozy (!).

 

Having used the more expensive lrf's, I am satisfied with my purchase.

Judge... sign up for the MG emails. They run sales/specials off and on all the time. I've seen them offered for $125-9 several times.

Good news. In an earlier post I stated; my M400 LRF went out a couple of weeks ago. It was showing funky readings, etc. Anyway, I sent it back to MG Golf about a week ago and today they sent me brand new one. No questions asked. My old one was purchased in July 2015. Hopefully this one will work for many years to come.

Hats off to MG Golf.

Thanks.

Sadly I may be at the end of my rope with the M400 LRF from MG Golf. I'm now on my second one since first purchasing back in July 2015. The MG400 is a good* basic LRF. Nothing fancy. My first one lasted a little over a year when the display went haywire. I called MG Golf - returned it- and got a new one sent to me ASAP with no questions asked. Now my replacement has had the rotating focus ring come off. I can push it back on but it's difficult to dial-in a good focus. So.. it's kind of worthless. I'll call them and return it soon.

 

Now, let me say this. MG Golf is a standup company and sells many good products IMO. Most notably their gloves, balls, and shirts. Top quality are these products and great prices.

 

* the M400 LRF works great at a low cost. Quality/build apparently is an issue. For that reason I'm not going to recommend this particular model any longer.

 

UPDATE TODAY: I have just spoken with MG Golf customer service and they have discontinued the M400 model. They are sending me ASAP one of the last remaining models they have left in stock - no questions asked. I'll return my defective one in the next few days.

M400 currently $105 on close out price.

 

Looks like MG is going to carry a range finder - GPS combo

 

https://www.mggolf.com/gps-rangefinders/

 

This always seemed like a no brainer to me and would be a definite purchase for me once my current bushnell finder stops working (I use a Neo as a GPS). Never understood why more companies don't combine the two given the small size of current GPS.

 

Either way, could be an interesting purchase

I sent them an email stating that the LCD numbers were losing their image making it difficult to tell if the number was a 3, 5 , 6, whatever. They sent me a replacement right away. No probs with the replacement....same model M400.

I had the same issue too a few months back Foz. Same deal... sent me a new one. But this time it was the focus ring/adjustment. I'm guessing they have been having too many issues with the product. Therefore they've discontinued it. Hopefully their newer models will be better quality.

I'm still an MG man. They're a standup company.

 

EDIT: This new one - replacement they're sending me will probably be my last. I've been thinking that after this latest one craps out I'll go with a higher end Bushnell model or something.

 Correction - looks like that screen on the side is just a large number display. It is only $105 though

Using the replacement M400 this week. I have noticed that the display is quite a bit more sensitive than the first one. But, I can read the numbers.
