This is a quality meter in all respect, the rubber molding case is substantial and holds the leads should you choose to store them that way. This meter can perform nearly any function you could probably throw at it for use around the home. When I joined the Navy 26 years ago as an Aviation Electricians Mate we had the Simpson 260, soon after we switched to the digital Flukes. Having used Flukes for the majority of the years I chased electrical gremlins on various Naval aircraft this meter gives me the same feel and confidence. As with all things time will be the deciding factor, I store this inside my home, not in the hot and humid garage. All I can say right now is I love this meter, the price was great for the quality of it and I look forward to use it for many years to come.
So it came time to replace the meter and I wanted something with a few extra features, the biggest was to be able to measure capacitance. I looked at Fluke and it was more than I needed, honestly this is more than I need but it's been spot on. For half of what a Fluke would cost this gives me more accuracy than I really need. It feels solid and, while I haven't done it yet, it seems to look like it would stand up to a drop or two.
Basically, if you want a little more than the standard auto-ranging DMM, this is definitely worth a look. I'm hardly an expert when it comes to meters, but this more than exceeds my needs and expectations
It may be a little intimidating for a homeowner, but he or she may only need to master a few of its many functions for it to help solve simple problems around the home. A great investment!
It is easier to use than my 25 year old Fluke, but I miss my ancient cheap Radio Shack DVM because of its quick manual setting.
So the 2 things I was unhappy with on this meter:
1.) The manual clearly states that the thero probe for taking temp readings maxes out at 1000 or 1200 degrees F. Well mine does not come even close to this. I put it on an exhaust manifold and got the good ole "OL" on the screen. I then borrowed a coworkers Laser Thermometer and pointed it at the manifold...495 degrees. So not sure what's going on there. I really liked the fact that you could use it as thermo probe, but if I cant measure exhaust temps with it, I will never use this function
2.) Not a huge con, just kind of annoying, for auto techs. The default voltage setting is AC. AC and DC voltage are on the same dial setting, so you must press the select to button to change to DC voltage every time you switch your meter on to measure DC voltage. This should only bother automotive techs I would presume. I have already gotten use to it after a few weeks. Just thought it was worth mentioning.
I bought this for the price ($65) and the reliablity of Klein Tools. If it broke I would buy it again, if it were still in the price range. I dont think I would pay a lot more it, seeing as how you can buy a fairly decent Fluke meter for $90.
