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

Pros:
- English manual included - Batteries included - Temperature probe included - Pretty good test leads included - Mechanical 'logic' prevents inserting test lead to amps socket if you are not measuring current - Multifunction socket lets you use another K-type thermocouple with flat pins or connect e.g. capacitors directly to meter - Fast display update
Cons:
- Does not have hfe measurement as stated in description - Diode test voltage is about 1.75V, it does not lit a led properly - Price is a bit high, but worth of it
Other:
It would be nice to see min/max -function in this price range meter.
Bottomline:
If you need a multimenter for serious hobby, this might be it.
