Pros:
Cheaper than most common meters in the market Ease of use Illuminated display makes it easier to read even in dark places
Cons:
Probes are really bad. They stopped working after measuring 3 capacitors. Just throw it away. It comes in a generic box for DMMs The probes connectors aren't identified as + and -, despite the manual says to connect them as it. Battery clip is weak and loses the connections.
Other:
After some guesses I got the correct probe connections. Good precision and wide measure range permits measure almost any capacitor. Could measure capacitor's leakage.
Bottomline:
Good stuff for having in your toolbox. Measures huge capacitances easy and fast. Could be better finished and have better probes.
