Customer Reviews

The one I received is indeed Mastech 8268, as described.

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.

I'm always skeptical about buying something like this online where I have no way of trying it or no one who can tell me their experiences.

I bought this for ham radio and automotive trouleshooting. This is a great multimeter, the auto-ranging feature is very convenient, as is the back light. I checked the sensitivity and accuracy of the meter on a friends oscilloscope, comparable to some of his much more expensive yellow multimeters(you know what brand I'm referring to) Of course the batteries supplied are cheap and don't last long, but it is nice that they include some to get it working right out of the mailbox. It may not be what you are looking for if you plan on using it 6 hours a day every day, but for general amateur use it is more than adequate, and an EXCELLENT value!!

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.

"Dead nuts" accuracy (< 1% error) on all the functions that matter most to me. The case is oversized, but this is just not important. Its stand works well. My only disappointment is that the excellent probes don't come with the ability to screw on any type of alligator clips. This setup is what I use most and I haven't found any alligator clips made for probes that have no threaded collar for screwing on the clips. I have to substitute inferior probes just to get integrated alligators. I would gladly have paid more money (say, 5 bucks) just to get this one little feature.

Auto-ranging works very well for a meter this cheap. I know better than to compare this meter to any that cost 5 to 10 times as much ! This model has truly superb "bang for the buck". It accurately measures resistors in the 1.0 and 0.10 ohm range, and it zeroes out to 0.00 ohms when its probes are shorted together.

The cap/diode/transistor plug-in test adapter is very handy. However, the transistor hFE test function seems nearly useless due to it biasing the transistor with an incredibly tiny current. Most discrete transistors are simply not biased this way in circuits which makes the meter's reading all but useless for most practical purposes.

All-in-all, I love this meter. Comparison of other meter models' user reviews against this meter's reviews led me to get this particular model. It is far, far better than the cheapie $10 to $20 meters. It's worth much more than the thirty-two clams (shipping included) I paid for it compared to all its competitors in its 25 to 50 buck price range.

A general observation: Mastech bench top power supplies also seem to be top notch for their cost. No other manufacturer seems to come close to matching Mastech's value and quality for their product's cost.

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.
