    A bit disappointed

    posted by Bpacz on 02/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It feels solid, looks good, claims true RMS, has a carry bag, and comes with a K type temperature sensor.
    Cons:
    The viewing angle on the LCD display is terrible. You can hardly view the digits holding the meter at a 90 degree angle to you...

    High dropout voltage

    posted by Bpacz on 01/24/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The module has been outputting a clean 900mA for me with 12v input voltage. Unfortunately, the dropout voltage appears to be higher than I had hoped. I wanted to use this module to create a USB charger using 5 nimh AA batteries. At 6.5v input voltage (5 ...
    Cons:
    This module has a dropout voltage of more than 1.6v. I have tried a variety of capacitors, high voltage, high capacitance, low...

    Good value, hard setting adhesive

    posted by Bpacz on 12/06/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The quantity is very small, but for many electronics tasks involving adding heatsinks to small components, it will last a while. It's cheap enough that I bought some just to keep in the toolbox and I have already used it a couple times.
    Cons:
    I don't see any cons, it sets fast, conducts heat well, and is very inexpensive.

    Absolutely the best value on a DMM period.

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

    Pros:
    Not only does this multimeter have features you will not find at this price point in any other unit, it is solidly built and seems to be very reliable based on my experience and other reviews. I was turned on to this unit from the multimeter shootout on th...
    Cons:
    No backlight. Can't think of any others.
