Very-well designed instrument. Fluke-like case, very sturdy, build quality of outer shell, bumper and case is excellent. Adequate leads. Automatic fuse on universal input. Function selector feels very good. What distinguishes it from another classmates are excellent battery holder (two AAs, a-la Fluke-17) with metal nut, REL mode and backlight, which is only limited by auto power-off after 15 minutes. Precise temperature measurement to 1 degree, 3 readings per second display. Two OFF positions on rotary switch.
No manual ranges, only auto (rather minor for this class of instruments). Useless data-hold - max/min would be much more useful. Internal build quality is not so good, but no manual soldering could be seen. Combination of data hold and light on one swinging button is bad due to small size. No Fahrenheit temperature reading (or is it good?). Somewhat hazardous frequency measurement mode a-la UNI-T (see eevblog). No carrying case (not really a problem at this price).
Holster (bumper) has Fluke-compatible attachment slot. It is very Fluke-like both in appearance and external build quality, however, not so inside. Main IC is covered with black epoxy, so I don't know the model. However, I'm very satisfied and it quickly began my EDC multimeter.
Very good, robust, precise and fit for every-day carry. No-frills, superb useability. The real thing. Recommended.
