Microprocessor based meter - useful bit of gear to have in the kit

I've had this or an earlier version (without a case) for over 10 years. Great for checking components. You will see pics of the readout in these threads:

Not super precision, but very inexpensive and it will give a really good indication if something is messed up.

Yes, these are super helpful. My son has one and I use it from time to time.

Thank you for posting that!
I should get one of those. My multimeter is pretty good, but doesn't have the full testing ability that meter provides. It's perfect for my use, as dead-on accuracy is not essential.
