It seems to be accurate, is easy to use, and is pretty durable.
I'm a fan and have 3
I purchased the Etekcity UT201 since I wanted an inexpensive True-RMS CLAMP meter for (the occasional) metering of wires too big to fit in the slot/jaws of my T5-600. The UT201 had, for the most part, very positive reviews on Amazon and the price could not be beat for its feature set. The 400A max is adequate for the vast majority of time I would need to check bigger wire.
Anyways, out of the box, the UT201 seems to be of impressive "heft" and quality for its price. The display and markings are clear and easy to read. The two leads (black and red cables with probes) are a good length. The thickness of, and insulation on, the leads, though not up to the level of the Fluke or other more expensive testers/meters I have used, seems quite good for the price point. I would not be uncomfortable in using the meter in applications up to its rated max of 600V. Some reviews I read stated the meter other purchasers had received did NOT include a case. Mine did and the case is appropriately sized and of a decent grade material.
I tested the voltage and amperage measurements of the UT201 against my Fluke T5-600. I tested the current (amps) draw of my Shop-Vac, a quartz halogen light and hairdryer (on high heat). The amps measured were virtually the same between the Fluke and UT201. I mean plus/minus 0.1 amps, which is negligible. Voltage was check at several different 120V receptacles around my house. Again the readings were virtually identical, plus/minus 0.2 volts. The only other feature I have had the opportunity to "check" is continuity. Just crossing the lead/probe tips indicated continuity (as it should), though the contact of the lead tips did not seem as "sensitive" as other meters/testers I have used. Perhaps due to the newness of the leads or type of metal used, not sure. I wouldn't deduct a star for this, maybe 1/2 a star if that was an option. Though long term it may not even turn out to be an issue.
Other reviewers had "complained" about the lack of auto-ranging and auto shut-off. At this price point I do not expect auto-ranging. My unit DOES have an auto shut-off feature built in (around 15 min. of non-use) and I believe it actually beeped when it shut-off (though I was in another room at the time). User instructions were included. They were relatively clear and I believe they would be relatively easy for a new or novice user to follow. There was no UL listing on the device or in the instructions that I could find.
In summary, my initial impressions of my new UT201 are very positive. I can't comment on the durability or long-term accuracy, since I only received it yesterday. It is for that reason that, as of now, I will only give it a 4-star rating. Based on what I see and my limited testing, I would definitely recommend the UT-201 to someone looking for a (very) reasonably priced, full-featured, clamp-on multimeter. If during the course of time and usage I have any significantly negative experiences with the unit I will try to update this review.
I ordered this to stock a tool chest out at our cabin. I got sick of hauling tools back and forth every time I had a project (and always forgetting something). I bought a bunch of tools in a short period of time, so I didn't want to buy expensive tools, and didn't try out everything when it arrived. That was a mistake.
This multimeter never worked, but since I didn't use it until after the return period (1 month) and product support period (3 months), I'm out of luck. The LED on my unit just flickers, even with a set of fresh batteries. I was just trying to see if I had connectivity across various points in vehicle wiring, so I just needed the ohmmeter, but the numbers that the LED display was flickering were garbage too -- mosty zeroes whether the electrodes were touching each other or if they were separated. So I think it might be more than just a bad LED display -- the whole thing is junk.
I generally avoid cheap tools. The failure of this cheap tool doesn't compare to some of my horror stories, but I should have stuck to my "no cheap no-name tools" rule when stocking up my toolbox this past winter.

This is no problem if one is using this meter say on an electrical panel within the meters operating range. However appliances or computers must be first powered down plugged into this special extension cable and then powered back up for you to measure the amperage.

The presentation of the product is well done. It arrived in retail packaging with a heavy, full-colour box -- the box does not add to the product's usefulness, but it is a good first impression that conveys a sense of quality. Opening the box I was pleased to find that the meter came in a zipper pouch -- simple though it was, yet still very nice to have since it keeps all the parts and instructions neatly together. There was also a wrist strap for the meter, another nice touch for those times you use it while standing. The leads also were nice, with the side that connects to the device being a shielded banana-plug with protective caps on them. The plastic housing is solid feeling and good looking.
Using the product is also a pleasure. Battery was included. Volrage is auto-ranging and auto-accuracy -- DC starting at millivolts with one decimal point accuracy and then once into the single-digit voltage range giving three decimal places of accuracy, whereas AC starts at single-digit volts with three decimal places of accuracy and advancing to 3-digit voltage with one decimal place of accuray. Only the amperage has multiple settings on the dial for 2/20A and 200/400A. I'm only using this around the house so will likely never go into the 200/400A setting, but am impressed it can measure such high current.
The rotary switch has a solid feel to it with a positive click as each function is engaged. Press the "max" button and it beeps, then take your measurement and the display holds the max reading so you can read it after removing the leads.
I have owned many meters in my life, and this is the best yet. I am very impressed and happy with this purchase.
I also purchased the Etekcity Test Lead Kit model TL-809 which is an excellent compliment to this meter.
My only wish would have been for an ammeter which also measures DC amperage but for that I expect I would have been paying a much higher price.
