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

posted by magullu on 04/08/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
