  • A bit disappointed

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    It feels solid, looks good, claims true RMS, has a carry bag, and comes with a K type temperature sensor.

    Cons:

    The viewing angle on the LCD display is terrible. You can hardly view the digits holding the meter at a 90 degree angle to your eyes. Also, the included leads are not nice quality (compared to the UT61e leads). The auto shutoff is annoying. If it's possible to turn it off, I haven't figured out how yet.

    OtherThoughts:

    It's not possible to prop the meter against anything easily as the base is curved and there is no stand. I use mine occasionally on my desk as a secondary multimeter but it's difficult to do anything with it other than lay it flat on the desk.

    Bottomline:

    I don't know if there's a better option out there for the money that includes all of the features of this meter. Even with the annoyances of poor LCD viewing angle, cheap leads, and the auto shutoff, it's still a good meter.
