Rated 1 out of 5 by from RPM is very slow to read and unstable (and really doesn't have a scale that measures from 2000-6000 which I had assumed was a mis-print since this is the most useful part of the range!). Frequency similarly very slow to reach a stable reading, not much use for small signals (i.e. logic levels) and doesn't work well with square wave / pulse at 12V peak which makes it particularly useless for automotive use. Duty cycle same sensitivity problem and slow/unstable reading as for frequency. Standard measurements are adequate but you can do those for half the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The first multimeter was reading 17 V on a 12 V car battery. The second one was OK with voltage, but the dwell meter was not working. I am waiting for the third one........Update, i recieved my 3rd one and it was faulty too! quality appalling

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this on the advice from my car sparky to find a stupid Astra fault. This little gadget saved me paying through the nose to find the faulty sensor. Nice one maplin!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from First meter started to read 20v when measuring voltage of my 12v car systems. Replacement seems OK - so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Item is pretty good and can come in useful it also has many different functions and seems accurate.

N58FU. The spec lists RPM range from 600-2000 and 6000-12000 RPM - Does it measure from 2001 to 5999 RPM?
