I bought this one to replace my older Craftman multimeter that a friend borrowed and fried. It has just about every function you could ask for in a meter and can deal with just about any situation you will run into when troubleshooting and testing around the home or shop. It is an Auto-Ranging meter which takes the guess work out of picking the correct voltage or current range to use, and it also allows you to manually pick the range for a more "fine-tuning" touch. I enjoy having the back light for when I work in low-light situations and a large display for reading at a distance when necessary. The lead receptors are clearly marked for proper current-connection and there is a warning message in case you forget to swap out the leads when measuring Amperes so you don't cook your meter. My only complaint is that the Auto-shut off shuts down the unit 15 minutes after you turn it on... usually right in the middle of testing something. Not a big deal unless you have a lot of parts to test. I have found it quite accurate and reliable, and is very easy to use. Most people will never use all the features it has so a cheaper model might suit you needs better.
Good: The multimeter itself is nice and has a color coded simple layout with large 1" digits for the display. The test leads are good quality and comes with a temperature probe. The backlight display really lights up the numbers well and looks great. Bad: The flip out stand on the back is super cheap, flimsy, plastic that broke within a week. It's ridiculous that this even made it store shelves with this obvious flaw. The rubber case that covers this is nice, but is loose in areas and doesn't really sit well on the multimeter. This will be going back to the store. Sad because I've had good experience with other Craftsman tools.
Very good quality for the price.Quite pleased with it.
I don't like it
ZZThis is exactly what I needed. High ohm's. backlit display, easy to read, user friendly
Bought it online and received it in two days
