This is an acceptable multimeter and will service most peoples needs. Obviously you are not going to compare this to a Fluke multimeter, but for the price vs accuracy it is a decent multimeter. I have (2) of these and use them for general use where 100% accuracy is not critical. If you want better tolerances then you are going to have to spend a lot more than what the Mastech MS8268 is offering.

With that said, the unit is somewhat large which may be better for some people. It has a nice large LCD display that is backlit if needed. The plastic casing itself is pretty rugged and the selector dial feels solid when you rotate the dial. Autoranging is nice and I really like the LED blinking terminal feature that displays which correct terminals to use depending on what function you have selected. As one of the previous reviewers stated this unit does not come with (3) AAA batteries. I like this MS8268 unit and believe most people that need a decent affordable multimeter can't go wrong for the price on this one.

It is not a Fluke and I am pleasantly surprised.

Pros
1-The multimeter doesn't feel / look cheap with no rattling internal parts despite being light. Ergonomic grips at the sides.
2-Accuracy spot on against two other multimeters and other built-in meters in my ham radios. Known values of resistors/capacitors that I had previously measured are reflected with third decimal variances with this meter - not bad at all (yes small rating 1K & 100uf if you were wondering)
3-Auto power off with a notification beep; quite handy.
4-LED safety status & beeps are great
5-Display is large and crisp
6-Back-light is evenly distributed
7-Continuity test response/latency is quite short without scratchy sounds (great!)
8-You can change battery without having to open the whole meter or remove the rubber boot
9-It appears to have a HRC fuse installed - EDIT - DOES NOT
10-Separate compartment for battery & fuse without having to dismantle the whole meter.
11-Mine came with batteries in top condition.
12-The manual range feature is useful if you are working with predefined variables and require readings quickly
13-Crossing the leads in ohms shows 0.000 not 0.001 like some other meters

Cons
1-The auto ranging can be little on the slow side, though only occasionally as much as 4-5 seconds.
2-Rather thin rubber boot; I wouldn't like to drop it.
3-The hold feature is manual.
4-The box & packaging was in Chinese showing another older manual ranging meter so I was initially worried I had received an incorrect product.
5-Rounded base coupled with its medium sized foot stand makes it prone to tipping over if not placed on a level surface.

Other thoughts
1-The meter draws 2.24mA just being on, 20.

Excellent multimeter, with nice accuracy for this price... Need more accuracy?? go for a fluke at several hundreds $$$ more... Autoranging it's a very nice option for fast readings between several ranges... It doesn't feel cheap at all, and i liked the green color... Large and clear readout, with a nice backlight option... In opposite with another reviewer, i got the "multi-function socket" for hFE measurement... Very happy with the device... Works with 3 AAA batteries (not supplied)...

I failed to check all functions on my new meter when I got it. I had occasion to use the DC Voltage after about 6 months. It read 53 volts on a car battery. A AA battery reads over 8 volts, and a few millivolts with the leads reversed.

Amazon supplied me with the contact info for the manufacturer, and said that it was up to the mfgr to resolve the issue.

I have been waiting for a reply from them for over three weeks.

If you buy from Mastech, make sure you check all ranges immediately..

In general, this is a great device for this cost range. It has all features required for daily usage. Description of multimeter can be found in internet. Here are some specific features:

- In any range two terminals to be used are illuminated with red LEDs (see foto). LED is swithed off when lead is pushed into terminal. If lead is pushed into wrong terminal for this range then correct terminal blinks and beeps.

- Automatic range; manual range selection with button.

- Wide set of ranges, including 400.0 mV and 400.0 uA

- Relative measurements and display hold. White backlight (5 seconds)

- Resettable fuse for current ranges (non-resettable for 10A range)

- Display data refresh: 3 per second.

Imperfection:

- Frequency measurement accuracy is low: 2%

- In accordance with manual, package must contain "Special Multi-Function socket" (required for hFE measurement). There was no such device in my package.

While the meter seems to be well built (though seems larger than it needs to be - difficult to hold in one hand comfortably), its accuracy is way off. At receipt, I quickly tested it for AC and DC voltage accuracy. Too bad, its off by over 20%. For both AC and DC. Didn't bother to test other capabilities - returned it immediately.
