Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by It doesn't get much easier First, let me say that I'm not a professional. We purchased this item to monitor moisture in a variety of materials. Turn it on, hold it to the material and it gives a measurement. What's not to like about that? The ONLY reason, and again it may be my limitations and not the equipment, is that it will usually range through about 0.3% while measuring - it doesn't stop on a single reading. I don't think that variance will affect many people, but that is the only observation I can provide on its operation. Otherwise, it performs well for my use. February 24, 2010
