  • Good, but not perfect

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It is rather cheap and sturdy. Good backlight (including staying on/off control). Real 100KHz measurements, with <0.3V voltage,
    It works!

    Cons:

    Testing leads are crap, especially silicone crocodile covers, ought to be replaced (at least covers, which are very slippy). Does not measure capacitance (all other ESR meters on the market do it). Does not have PASS/FAIL indication. No sound. No Kelvin probes/receptacles. 9v battery. Bad ON/OFF switch.

    OtherThoughts:

    Change battery to the all-time China favorite NL-5B, USB recharge, add Kelvin probes, add capacitance test and PASS/FAIL with buzzer, fix firmware and it could be an instant hit!

    Bottomline:

    Rather uncooked beta version, but with great future potential. Would recommend to enthusiasts (but pay attention to the drawbacks).
