[access-uk] Poor quality of equipment?

Hello all,

This is not strictly computer related, but involves accessibility equipment....

Does anyone know of a good quality talking tape measure; other than the Cobalt 
one?

I have two of these, and a year is about the most I can get out of both them, 
as they always end up giving spurious measurements- such as 2513 inches when 
the tape is fully retracted.

Replacing the battery etc does no good.

Do we have to put up with inferior quality materials every time?

Regards,

A disgruntled Mike
