Loved this, but it was dead within two years. It did use it continually and will buy this brand again, but thought it might last longer. If it were still alive, I'd rate it excellent. So if you are happy with a less than two year usage window, I'd recommended it.
This little thing is amazing! I have moderate Sciatica pain, which can make life a real downer sometimes, not to mention my job difficult! Well I just got this in the mail. I played around with it for a while, and found that placed in just the right area (sorry to be blunt, but right on the butt), on a fairly strong burst setting, it really helps. It helps the nerve pain a fair bit, and is absolutely amazing on my tense muscles (the muscles in my lower back all the way down my legs can be like rocks after a long day when my nerve is acting up). OTC pain killers never did much, and my heating pad only went so far, and is very uncomfortable to use as the weather gets warmer. But the TENS 7000 is like a god send. My impression on quality? Well it's not the best of the best. It also doesn't cost as much as a used car. I'd give it a solid medium quality rating. Despite what some have said, this doesn't appear to be a cheaply made device. Yes, it's plastic. But it's also heavy and well put together, even for plastic. Other things to note. It does, in fact, come with a battery, 4 electrodes, two set of leads, and instructions.. These were all things I found hard to distinguish from the listing. Size is a bit misleading in the ad as well. It looks fairly sizable, but really it's smaller than one of those old walkmans. Around the same size (but obviously much thicker) of an Ipod classic. This is not a deterrent or negative in my opinion; I wanted a small unit. In terms of portability, this product is ideal. Others have also complained that the power settings and on/off knob is the same switch. I can't really see this being an issue. Just be careful using it. And the device comes with a plastic cover for the area, so if secured properly, accidental knocking shouldn't be a problem. Last, shipping and processing. Overstock took a couple days to process my order, which is fairly standard. In fact, the processing went on so long in my status, continuing into the day of my arrival estimate, I thought there was no way I'd get it when I expected. But I paid for (to the tune of nearly what the device itself cost) the fastest shipping option. Surprise, it was waiting for me when I got home from work. They don't mess around with overnight air delivery O.O. The high price of that shipping option was well worth it to me. Funny thing about pain, you'll happily pay whatever you can afford for relief. So, though this obviously isn't the highest quality TENS device you can buy, but in terms of value for price, I'd call it money well spent. As long as my unit keeps kicking for a couple months, based on how it's made me feel, I'm happy with the value.
When I first opened this, I was shocked at how filmsy and cheap the plastic container was made. This was a real disappointment. The product itself appears to be well made and sturdy as well as easy to use. It performed exactly as advertised. But for the cheap container, I would rate this product excellent. I am very pleased with the product itself, but that plastic container is bad. Very bad. I
