Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
cheap well built for price compact automatically finds an appropriate range Has a handy range cheat sheet placed in the top lid when you flip it open.
Cons:
Makes "overloaded" beeping noise when trying to measure current from a 1.5V AA NiMH Battery. It can measure that battery's voltage though.
Other:
Summarised Specs for potential buyers from the cheat sheet: DCV: 200mV - 600V ACV: 2V - 500V (Frequency Range: 40~400Hz) DCA: 200microA - 200mA ACA: (Take it only as a reference) 200 microA(+_5 % of rdg) - 200mA (+- 3% of rdg) Resistance: 200 Ohms - 20 MOhms Dioode Test: Test current 1mA , test Voltage 1.5V DC Continuity: <80 Ohm Beeper
Bottomline:
Still great, but know what it cannot do :)
