Pros:
This product is very good! It has a sturdy construction and feels solid at hand. The display includes a horizontal bar graph that responds very quickly (the numeric display only updates a few times per second).
Cons:
Aside the fact that it does not measure very low (pF) capacitances, it's perfect.
Other:
Contrary to some users' experience, my unit came with a working backlight. You must press the "Hold" button for some seconds to activate it. It is noticeably bigger than those cheap yellow multimeters, son don't expect it to be "pocket-sized". However, it comes with its own pocket, so you should have no problem when carrying it around.
Bottomline:
For the price, buy it! At least here in Brazil similar Minipa models cost way above US$ 100.00!
