Good. I'm satisfied. – Auto Range Digital Multimeter Reviews

Involvement:Novice (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Compact: The box closes all it sturdy. Auto off: If you leave it inactive it stops, that's useful. Autorange: This is the only multimeter I ever had, but I think it would be awful to have to set the range by hand. The dial doesn't feel cheap.
The place for storing the red and black poles with the cables is a bit little. It could be easier to recoger
Chinese instructions. Anyway it's like any other multimeter.
The two small buttons (for manual range setting and other things) feel a bit cheap and hard to push, not like the dial, which is good.
You can google a bit and find near identic instructions in any christian language.
You can set the range manually with a small button.
Also has a beep noise for checking continuity. Very useful.
I don't regret have bought it. The use I'm giving it is very ocasional, as I'm very far from an electronic guru. Just for finding out if a battery is dead or if the problem with a electronic device is on the power supply or anywhere else.
