3.0 out of 5 stars Very Basic, but works., January 1, 2010
This is a no frills unit, but functions just fine. The unit does have the following features. You can switch between Lux and FC, and it has a peak funtion where you could capture the highest reading measured.It also comes in a rather cheap storage case. It does have a "hold" function which will store one reading at a time.
I have used another meter that had a memory function to store multiple readings(100's of readings), which was very handy when you were in such low light that you could not read the meter. This unit stores one reading with the hold function.
On the posative side it is an inexpensive meter that perform basic measurements with ease.If your into bells and whistles there are few here.

3/5 starts seems a little harsh for not having features that it's doesn't claim to have (and honestly don't sound real useful). Least you gave your reason.

sorry you feel I slighted it. 3 stars to me does not only relect the quality of the item, but the realtive features. I felt others may wish to understand the good and bad point before they purchased.

As I tried to explain, (admitedly I did a poor job of explaining)

It may depend upon the reason for use and location. Typically when I use a light meter it is for exterior lighting. I want to take multiple readings accross the area of interest to establish an average light level. If it is not well lit , then you cannot read the meter, and therefore have to store the reading and either walk to a lit area to read it, or turn on protable light source (flashlight) without pointing it anywhere near the sensor, write down the numeber, then repeat the process for the other locations of concern.
The superior meter that I had used before had a memory function which stores multiple readings, so I was able to walk arounf the area of interest and keep pressing the memory button at each test location, then walk to a (warm) well lit area and review all readings that had been taken, this was a huge convienence.

Just a thought...I understand the reasoning here but, unless "The superior meter" you mentioned is also of comparable price to this one, I would personally change the rating from 3 to 5 stars. After all, you get what you pay for.
I do realize this posting was waay back in 2012 but still, why downrate a meter for doing exactly what it was manufactured to do?
