    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Cons:
    Cheap and toy like look. Ugly big text. Dodgy switching between cross and line, but good between the dot. I have never found d...

    Cable Strpper

    posted by ecqu000 on 09/16/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is a very good quality tool, i don't see difference between much expensive ones sold locally. Handle are fit tight, wont come off easily. Cutting edges are sharp.
    Cons:
    No markings on insulation (eg. max 1000V, no one really tests these ..) Other than that, none.

    Cons:
    Hard to measure distances greater than 15m because you have to hold device at right angle, further away you are harder it gets ...

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

    Cons:
    Connector doesn't fit on breadboard, you need wires to connect or make adapter board. Not very easy to mod to use bigger ant...

    UT204A

    posted by ecqu000 on 09/11/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Can measure DC current with a clamp, although not most precisely. + It's relatively well built and feels sturdy in hand, but rather lightweight. + Rotary switch and clamp move smoothly and are well built.
    Cons:
    - Probe wires feel cheap. - Thermal sensor even cheaper. - Carrying bag isn't that good either.
