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

    Pros:

    - Solid casing

    - Rubber grip

    - Graph bar

    - Auto power off (can be turned off)

    - Clear english manual (Chinese standards)

    Cons:

    - No backlight!

    - AAA batteries (I prefer a 6F22 9v battery)

    - No RS232 (logical for this price)

    - Temperature measurement is not accurate

    OtherThoughts:

    I am a electrician and usually use a Fluke 77V. Out of curiosity, I ordered the V99... it's better than I expected!

    Because my Fluke multimeter is pretty expensive, I use the V99 for simple measurements and / or dirty work sites.

    (many colleagues ask where the V99 comes from and are quite positive!)

    The accuracy is also pretty good and better than expected for a non-True RMS multimeter.

    I miss the backlight, the most

    Bottomline:

    Good multimeter for use every day and DIY.

    Even for a pro's basic measurements.
