It held its own when it came to accuracy, however it should be noted that the Fluke 100 series as well as the 15B, 17B, etc do not offer True RMS so on some AC readings you may see it struggle.
I tested a 9V battery and resistance on my electro variable resistance box and it was more than acceptable. I didn’t throw any abnormal waveform AC voltages at it but looking some other videos online it may affect the readings.
I would say for around $40 the 101 is worth having due to its small size and portability. As far as the other import Fluke Meters go 106 15B etc. I would stay away from them and consider the Fluke 115, Extech EX355, or Amprobe AM-570. All are within the price range and offer True RMS. The Extech and Amprobe even offer some other nice features too but you are sacrificing on the Fluke’s ruggedness.
I attached some pictures of my comparisons for review
Yes, it is made in China, as is my 116 (even my 87V only claims 'Assembled in USA'), but it still has that Fluke pedigree and quality.
It is as internally robust as they come, and just works as a Fluke is expected, every time.
No Amp measurement is not a problem, as 99% of the time, I either don't require or it is more convenient to use a current probe or sense resistor than insert a DMM into the circuit.
At approximately 1/3 the price and volume (minus the leads) of Fluke's 'compact' 110 series meters, the 101 allows me to pack a smaller tool case for remote work, and still show up with a trusted meter.
Mine included Fluke TL75 test leads and I bought the (over-priced) softcase for it.
I would likely add on a silicon or rubber overmolded protective case, if one was available.
Overall, I am quite pleased with the purchase and consider this basic meter a good value, and recommend to anyone for around the house use, or even as a back-up or flyaway/tool case meter for professionals.
As for the multimeter, it works, and it's simple to figure out, and I'm keeping it besides all of the unusual packaging issues.
Update: I went to use the meter, plugged in the leads, and they didn't seem to click in place in the handheld unit, the leads were very loose fitting. When I tried to use it, the leads kept unplugging from the unit. Unfortunately, I have to send this one back.
