Best deal for a digital multimeter – 2.2" LCD Handheld Digital Multimeter (Voltage + Current + Resistance /1*6F22) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
Has a continuity check supported by sound. Has a hold button. Has a backlight button. It can measure relative smaller current (20 uA).
Cons:
Housing quality is lower. Plastic looks cheap. Test leads that are in the package are a little bit harder to connect to multimeter.
Other:
I also ordered the alligator clip test leads (http://dx.com/p/multimeter-alligator-clip-test-lead-cable-red-134251) with this product. This is a must have if you want to have a permanent connection in your circle and if you want your hands to be free for something else.
Bottomline:
I think this is the best deal for the digital multimeter for a student that wants a cheapest but capable multimeter. Despite my bashing of product housing and test leads quality the product itself works perfect.
