  • Nice Digital Meter but wish manual was in English

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

    Pros:

    Nice and compact multimeter, comes in convenient case that also stores the leads. Appears to be quite accurate and works great. Battries were included! Great value for the money.

    Cons:

    Manual is in Chinese (but if you know how to use a digital meter, you'll be fine) and it comes with a 'mystery' resistor on a piece of paper - also in Chinese. Build quality is ok for the workbench, but not suitable for rough 'in-field' use.

    OtherThoughts:

    Great value for the money, no more switching ranges and the auto power off is great for people who keep forgetting to turn of their electronics (like me).

    Bottomline:

    If you're looking for a cheap multimeter with auto range and a compact form factor, go get it! If you're planning on using the meter in the field, you may want to look for something more sturdy.
