Nice multimeter – A830L Digital Multimeter Reviews

posted by phestar on 06/30/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Very well built.
- Very cheap, similar multimeters cost 2 or 3 times more at stores where I live.
- Not as big as other multimeters so you can carry it very easily.
- Useful "data hold" button.
- You can read the display in dark enviroments because it has backlight.
- Measurements seem to be accurate. I have compared them with those given by another multimeter and values are the same. I have also used it with some spare components (resistors, batteries, a power supply, etc).
- Continuity test buzzer.
Cons:
- Manual only in Chinese. It's not a problem if you know how to use it (and what safety measures you have to take).
Other:
I bought it because I also own a DT9205A (also sold at DX) but it's too big to take it with me, and this multimeter is smaller and has similar characteristics.
Bottomline:
It's a good multimeter for amateur use. Buy it.
