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

Pros:
Good meter that has most of the functions I want as a hobbyst, and simple to use with its autorange. Shows the same measurements as my 10 years old DVM92 : I hope it means that my other meter is still good, and not the other way.
Cons:
Continuity test is slow. I prefer to use another meter for that. The autorange could be a bit faster, but it's not that bad.
Other:
When I bought it, I thought I'd be able to identify bad caps with its capacity measurement . I was a bit disappointed since most bad caps still show the right capacity with the meter. Anyway, it's not a con of that VC99. I also often use the Temperature measurement to better monitor BGA resoldering with the heat gun. For all the other functions, it does the job right as a second multimeter (I still like to use my old one for this).
Bottomline:
It has done the job so far.
