Great tool! – MASTECH MS5908A 2.5" LCD Circuit Analyzer - Green + Grey (6 x AAA) Reviews

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

Pros:
1) Handheld tester, lightweight and easy to use. 2)Works on all international voltages. 3) Results are large and easy to read. 3) Easily checks polarity, Vd, line impedances, RCD current-to-trip and time-to-trip. I use this now instead of 3 different testers and the price was lowere than all three of them individually. Time will tell on how robust a tool it is, but for now I'm impressed and have trimmed down my testing tool kit substantially.
Cons:
Tester cable is standard US plug, needs rewired-- Pay attention to differences in US wiring color code, (i.e. Black is LIVE!?, white 0V)--or can just use a computer power cord from your own country. Could also come with a set of test lead with alligator clips for testing switchboards, but this can easily be made.
Other:
Useful functions, manually even comes with some easy to understand instructions on testing tables with expected results, fault conditions and recommended solutions.
Bottomline:
More than worth it at the price. This is a bargain.
