    For those who have tried both, is the Mini version just as usable as the large Polytune? Easy to read?

    Any other issues between the two?

    Thank you in advance

    The big one has more features because there's more room for them, like the power out jack. But...
    I would swear the actual displays, underneath that opaque screen cover, are the same size. Please, someone prove me wrong!

    The full sized models can take a 9volt battery. The mini has to have a power feed. The mini's also are only true bypass. The full sized version 3 is switchable (internal DIPS) between true bypass and buffered. I use the mini on my board to save space and it works great. The display is the same as the bigger one and very bright.

    Have owned Polytune 2 and 3 full size. The display is wider on the full size. Of all the tuners I've owned, PT v2 is the best and my favorite.
