Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lew Works as intended to regulate pressure
Overall a good product and works as intended. Came preset at about 35 PSI, and was easy to adjust. The adjustment screw moves in "clicks" so you dial in the pressure. Seemed to be about four clicks per one PSI. One star off because the price seems high for what they're selling, but it's pretty much the only option for the application (supply and demand).

This is a well built, high quality pressure regulator. The plastic screw will hold up fine if you use the correct size standard screwdriver to turn it. It works when water is flowing through it, so install a pressure gauge at the end of the drip system and check and adjust the pressure with the system running.

This regulator is supposed to be able to drop pressure to 28 PSI for use with drippers, etc. Although it is adjustable, I could not get the pressure below 40 PSI.
Thinking that I had the only bad one in a batch, I purchased another, only to have the same problem. Both will be going back to the store.

I have 180 psi water pressure to the line i am using these on and the water goes pressure is reduced to levels that don't make my emitters pop off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Perfect pressure regulator for special low-flow "Hunter"rotator sprinkler nozzles
Easy to install, has the perfect pressure range for our application ( 40PSI)
That said, we are hoping to save up to 30% in water-use and loose less mist to the environment while achieving more water- saturation in the lawn.

This pressure regulator allowed me to accomplish what I needed to do without having to purchase four separate regulators of different pressure requirements.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gary Confusing, doesn't regulate as expected
I am NOT a pro at irrigation, which is why I bought a pressure gauge to install inline with this device and a filter. After building the hookup that I attached to a valve on my sprinkler manifold, I ran a single 8 node drip manifold off of the build. I adjusted the nodes from full off to full on while watching the pressure gauge. The needle never moved from 40 PSI. After carefully removing the red cap, I adjusted the regulator ranging from clockwise and counter clockwise turns while all the drip manifold nodes were full on, and still the pressure gauge needle never budged from 40 PSI. I also noticed that the flow to the 8 nodes never increased or decreased.
It's appropriate to say that the pressure before the regulator was 72 PSI the whole time, so the device does step the pressure down a bit. But the adjustment does not seem to have an effect, and the device didn't bring it down to 25 PSI like I wanted.
Since none of my drip nodes blew out after a week of use, and since I also have additional nodes to add, I'll keep the device for now. It just seemed like an adjustable pressure regulator should actually adjust the pressure, especially at a substantially higher price.

Beware the plastic adjustment device; any kind of slotted screwdriver can rip it to shreds before you know it. The unit might work, but I'll never know.
