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

Pros:
comes with batteries and pouch, with crocodile probe
non-contact voltage tester works great
extendable inner probe
easy to use
DOES come with a manual
Cons:
only 3 digits, not very precise
you can't just use the pen to measure voltage, you need the other probe
no backlight
not small enough to carry in a pocket
Other:
I bought this item to measure electric panels easily but it's not very handy for me since I still need two probes and since I work at night, no backlight is a big con for me. there are situations i will find this very useful but mostly, it's not cost effective.
Bottomline:
this item might be handy in some situations or ease up things a bit, but it's not worth the price. There are better multimeters in DX with better prices.
