Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for your money The design and construction of this multimeter is very thoughtful. The display numbers are not overly large, but are very easy to read. The backlight is the right amount of brightness and very evenly lit. The dial is easily turned, but holds in each place with a solid click. The rubberized skin is attached to the body securely and feels very solid in the hand. The included probes seem solid. Even the hinge that props the multimeter up holds itself in place well. The main features of this multimeter are: – 4000 count display – Great LCD display – Even, white backlight – 1.5v and 9v battery tester – White LED flashlight – Non-Contact Voltage (NCV) tester The last 4 items are worth talking about in more detail. Firstly, the white backlight is just the right amount of bright. The really nice thing about this backlight is that you turn it on… And it stays on! Most other multimeters that I've seen have a backlight that automatically turns off anywhere between 5 and 25 seconds. Not very helpful when you’re working in a dimly lit situation and you don’t have good lighting, like, oh, in a power outage or perhaps if your generator has shutdown and you’re trying to diagnose something. And speaking of no light, this multimeter has it’s own white LED flashlight built-in! It’s nothing special, but in a situation where you have no flashlight and you’re down on your hands and knees working on something, it’s certainly nice to have that flashlight button at the ready. The battery tester leaves a little to be desired, I think. There’s nothing wrong with it, per se. It works just fine. Just dial in 9v or 1.5v depending on whether you’re testing 9v or AA/AAA batteries and test away. The NCV feature on this unit might be the best extra that a multimeter can have. While it has only an indicator tone (no light), in the tests conducted, it was the best at not raising false positives and yet when within 2 inches of a live power outlet, it would reliably emit an audible tone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bang for the buck Reasonably-priced meter with plenty of features--the no-contact voltage detection is handy. Seems quite durable--it's been dropped more than once, and still works fine. The only con I have is with the probes--they can be difficult to insert and don't always make good contact without a little wiggling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market I've used this for year's and it has never let me down. I've wired my whole garage and my motorcycle and I have to admit it is always spot on. Keep up the good work
