Cheap, fully featured multimeter. – Auto Range Digital Multimeter Reviews

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

Pros:
- Cheap. - Autorange. - Case conseals leads. (See cons.)
Cons:
- Fuse soldered directly to positive lead. (I.e. no fuse holder/socket.)
- Cheap build. Sometimes when I open the protective case the bottom half almost gets loose of "the actual" frame of the device. Only the battery case lid is tightened with a screw, otherwise the case is only snapt in place.
- Case conseals leads. You must pack the leads or you cannot close the protective case.
Other:
Mine didn't come with "mystery resistor". The essentials in the manual can be understood without knowing any Chinese whatsoever.
Bottomline:
You get what you pay for.
