Weaknesses: Mine blew after only 6-8 cases of paint.
Review: I hardly had experience with this guage before it blew. I had turned my reg down (like i do every time i gas up) and gassed up. The guage shot to 180. I thought i adjusted the reg wrong, maybe turning it up by accident. So i turned it down & shot a few - the guage reading didn't go down but i was having cycling issues, like the pressure was too low. So regardless of what the guage read, i turned it up, then heard a loud leaking. Degassed & removed the tank and let the remaining air hiss out of wherever it was coming out from.

I looked at the guage - it still read 180. I turned the Ion back on, turn the eyes off and shot - no air came out. I removed the guage. Still read 180. It's forever stuck at 180, even now as it sits on my coffee table with the rest of my discarded stock parts.
Conclusion: I've heard of other people's stock Ion guages blowing so i wasn't surprised mine crapped out. Guess i'll give it a 5 because it worked fine - when it was working.
