I purchased this meter for hobby electronics use, and it has indeed served me well.
Initially I purchased an EX 330 and found that I needed a second multimeter to perform
simultaneous current and voltage measurements. I came across a lot of manual ranging meters in the $20
range, but I decided to try this one (Extech MN35) Since the Extech 330 performed so well.

Initially I was a bit worried that a manual ranging meter would be difficult, but it proved to be easy --
and it resolves voltage and current measurements much faster than my auto range Extech 330.

I have used this meter on several arduino projects and it performed well, and is rock solid.

Pros:
+ replaceable fuse, a must for newbies like myself.
+ Rock solid form factor, you know you'll drop you meter at least once.
+ Easy to read display.
+ Measures current up to 200 Micro Amps, Sweet!
+ Measures temperature to boot!

Cons: (You know there has to be at least one)
+ Not auto ranging, but what do you want for $20??

Summary:
This meter gets a thumbs up. If you are looking for a meter for hobby electronics, and don't
want to spend more than $20 I would definitely recommend this multimeter. I would also recommend
picking up a pack of fuses (250mA/250V) as well, They only cost a couple dollars.

I am very happy with this multimeter. I am an EE and I have a bunch of home projects and I am very impressed with this meter considering it is only 20 bucks. The manual gives the specs and most measurements are within 2%, which it plenty accurate for what I am doing.

The temperature probe has proven quite useful. I was not planning on using it at all, but I built a power supply and used the probe to monitor the temperature of the heat sink. I used this information to determine the appropriate time to turn a fan on and off. The diode forward voltage meter is very nice too, seems to be accurate.

This is not auto-ranging, but it is really a convenience issue. One could even argue that this is better because the response time is faster since the device does not have to adjust every time you make a measurement.

Everyone complains about the continuity beeper, and it is pretty annoying. It is not de-bounces so when you make contact with the probe the meter screeches at you for a second until is puts out a solid tone. If the designers wanted to de-bounce the continuity feature they would have had to build in extra circuity to isolate the filter from all the other measurements automatically, which is a lot like the auto ranging, which is not what this meter does, so really it makes sense that this thing is a little rough with the beep.

My one complaint is that the 200mA max current measurement setting is tied in with the regular voltage measuring socket. Usually all current measurements require the user to move the probe to a different socket, which is the case with the 10A setting on this meter. But 200mA could do plenty of damage to a lot of circuits if someone wasn't careful.

Are you thinking you may need a "Better Muti Meter" ... Are you thinking to yourself "Well, perhaps I can find a slightly better meter for a few bucks more?" -- Do yourself a favor and just stop looking now and buy this guy. This meter is overkill for 99% of people who actually even know how to use a multimeter. And those other 1% will look at a Fluke or something else, they would never even click on this item -- and if they do, they are just cheap.

Overall, This meter is well made, has a nice grippy case around it that will protect it if it gets bumped around. The continuity beep is easily heard over a running engine, but not loud enough to wake a sleeping baby. The dial has a nice firm click to it. The response time for readings is adequate with the digital readout -- but the hold feature makes up for that.

-1 star. Stinky plastic.

I just bought this and was pleased that a battery came installed (especially because removing the screws to install the battery is less convenient that other meters.) And the unit is a little thicker than I expected at 1.5", although it does state this in the decription.

But my main complaint is that I could not get any reading when testing the voltage of what I knew was a new (and therefore fully charged) battery on my first attempt. But when I wiggled the probe ends attached to the meter, I could get a proper reading on the meter, but it was an intermittent connection. So I assumed that the problem was that the plugs were not making a good contact with the female sleeve contacts in the meter.

So I decided to insert a small screw driver into the male plug end of the probe wires that go into the meter to expand the end of the plug so they would make better contact with the sleeves in the meter. Surprisingly, this did not fix the problem even though I could feel that the probe ends were now making better contact with the sleeve contacts in the meter.

Well, I opened up the unit again and it appears that the female sleeve sockets are fully soldered to the PCB so that does not appear to be the problem. The next thing is to try other probe wires and sure enough they worked great!

Well I phoned the number on the manual and got a message that the number is disconnected. So I sent an email to their email support address listed on same manual. I may update this later if and when they reply. Costs about the same to send this thing back as it would cost to order a set of new banana plug probes. So I guess that that is what I will do.

Next day: So I ordered new probe wires plug another cheap multi meter from Annova, 3220.
