  1. BluepigBandit

    Great Precision DMM!

    I use this DMM every single day as an Automotive Diagnostics Technician. It suits my field of work well as the systems on cars are getting more complex and precise. My favourite features include the MAX-MIN, Precision Bar Graph Display, and the Large Digit Display.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  2. TOOLMAN

    Professional Tool

    I have trusted my life with tool. Great features, easy to use, and an east-to-read back-lit display.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  3. Betta

    Very good for the $

    I have had no problems with this meter.
    It has a lot of tests you can do with it.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

  4. Riley

    Awesome!

    I have been looking for a quality DMM for a little while (and one that wont break the bank) This one is top quality with the highest safety rating available (1kV CATIII 600V CATIV) and all the features and accuracy(TRMS) of DMMs four times the price!! HIGHLY reccomend! The “No Hassle 1 year warranty” is also a great backing to the product. I’m going to keep buying this companies products for sure!

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

    AMPROBE AM-270

    This multitester is a great tool to have it for everything you need to measure regarding electricity, hvac etc.
    Measures AC/DC voltage up to 1000V, Current, Resistance, Frequency, Capacitance and Temperature, in the hvac field it is the best tool to have to troubleshoot and diagnosed any type of air conditioning. It is the best tool to test any electric components. for the electric field this is the tool that you need to acomplish your task.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.

    Superb Value! Excellent Build. Great Price.

    I have several Amprobe products, and none have let me down, but the AM-270 surprised me in a very good way. So I’ll give you my pros and cons of this meter:

    Pros:

    -Feels Rugged and good ergonomics- Feels good in the hand, and feels like it could sustain a fair amount of abuse.
    -True-RMS- More accurate readings of AC.
    -Tons of functionality- From voltage to capacitance to continuity to microamperes to temperature. A true all-in-one.
    -Accurate/reliable- Definitely feel confident in this meter when I make a measurement.
    -Good quality LCD with barrapher, though the barrapher isn’t perfect, it can make interpretting changing signals easier.
    -Internal build quality is superb for the price- If you crack this thing open, you are greated by an absolutley gorgeous PCB populated wilth a large assortment of high quality parts, including a large input protection section. Soldering looks good. Nothing bodgy!
    -Good aesthetics- I know this isn’t really important, but I totally dig how it looks. Very professional.
    -Excellent pricepoint- I mean wow. I got this for $90 and wow. Don’t think you can find a better meter for the money.

    Cons-

    Not too many of these, but I do have a few “complaints”.

    -LCD Backlight isn’t all too hot. Atleast it has one, but A.) It’s not very powerful, B.) it’s green and C.) It’s not uniform. ie. blotchy. I have an AM-220 and I love its backlight. It’s bright, red and uniform. Too bad the AM-270 lacks this.
    -Kickstand is a little flimsy for my taste, but not too bad
    -Range selector switch is a kind of stubborn, which is nice to ensure it doesn’t change to an unwanted setting, but it’s a little stiff.
    -Scratchy continuity tester- It is not latched. It is quick, but it’s scratchy.

    ✔ Yes, I recommend this product.
