Pros:
It's an excellent tool for electric troubleshooting. Auto-range is fast and very handy. The measurement is very fast and precise. It has power detect feature, that detects presence of power in near proximity of the tip (without making contact), the sensitivity can be adjusted. The tip is very sharp and it can be retracted into the tool with twist-motion. It comes with nice carry pouch that can be attached to the belt. It has data hold and max function so you can make measurements in inaccessible places easily.
Cons:
It's a bit bulky sometimes, so you must use other end (com) to touch hard to reach places. There is no manual or any kind of instructions, except the technical details on the packing box. No amp-meter or capacitance measurement capability.
Other:
It has 4 buttons, but most important buttons for range and function are combined, and less important hold and max buttons are larger. It should be other way around.
Bottomline:
It's a great tool for Electric engineer, its small enough and good for automotive, or house electric repairs. Does what it's supposed to do very good !
