Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Ergonomics, easy to use. Bought about one week ago. Does what it says on the tin. Only minor comment is that the probes supplied, while very safe, are great for use on eg PC boards with easy access to contacts but not long or fine enough to probe into some sockets or some hard to reach points. This problem was simply solved by buying another set of probes which also accept changeable insulated crocodile clips, spade terminals and fine probes. However, the multimeter was a good choice.
