I don't buy pots much, so I have minimal frame of reference, but this is exceptionally well-made. Twist action is smooth, with slight reference "grind" during rotation. Handles wattage well, and though it gets hot, that's expected at 4-5W. Actual measured resistance of the pot is .4 to 101.7 ohms.

My only gripe is that the middle terminal seems quite fragile, and if it needs to be bent it feels like it's about to snap. Luckily, mine did not, but I suggest bending it slowly and carefully with needle-nose pliers.

0-100 ohms as advertised. Used it to simulate a fuel tank sending unit to calibrate a dashboard gauge!

I bought this to adjust the volume of the beeping alarm in our automatic gate opener. I added it pretty quickly and it did a great job in allowing me to adjust the volume.

Works awesome. Used it to make a fuel gauge tester on my 83 Dodge Ramcharger. I bought a small project box, wire, and alligator clips and put it all together.

Used the potentiometer for a home built magnetic stir plate that I use for yeast starters. The pins are in standard configuration, but you can easily determine what is what with a ohm meter if you're not sure. Resistance changes are smooth and linear. Product met all my expectations.

I have purchased other products which I thought were good quality, but they were not as good as this one. Worked perfectly for my needs.
