Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky Works As Well As My old Fluke
I bought this meter close to three years ago and it hasn't let me down other than once (readings get a little sporadic if the batteries are weak). No big deal, I just change the batteries every couple of months. As an electrician twenty plus twenty years under my belt, I can definitely say I feel confident in this tool. Also, a few coworkers used my meter and ended up buying their own. The best part is the price. I like the idea that I have a quality made, accurate meter that will not put me in the poor house if it breaks from being dropped (being in Kansas, I frequently get sent to grain elevators, and I do not think the meter would survive the 120+ ft fall).
Furthermore, with my experience, I do get my fair share of "greenhorns" working for me. I recommend the Klein meters to them because someone just starting in the trade shouldn't spend Fluke money. All in all, this is a great meter that exceeds my expectations.

As a professional tradesman, I use this meter almost daily. I like the magnets on the back. They allow you to stick the meter to a panelbox or HVAC unit to allow both hands to be free for testing different circuits. It can even check capicators! if you need to read DC microamps or need true RMS, then you need to buy the more expensive meter. For $89.00 this meter has exceded my expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Works well as advertised. Having better performance than my Ideal brand.
Bought primarily for clamp amperage reading but use all other functions as well. Nice to have alligator clip adapters for lead wire probes. Range selection fast and easy. Will be able to give more complete review after all functions get a thorough work out. So far it seems to be a much better value than Fluke or Ideal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by compwhiz2011 Does everything I need for HVACR
I just started taking classes for HVACR this past January 2015 (now march 2015) and before I purchased this meter I asked my instructor who has been in the field for 35 years about it and he said it has everything Ill ever need in a clamp meter and more so I purchased it and showed it to him and he likes it more than his fluke!
I use it everyday and NO complaints! Audible continuity and NCV alarms are very loud, magnet in the back holds the meter to the metal surfaces on running air units very well, great backlight and flashlight is actually pretty handy and bright, clamp jaws are great very easy to use right or left handed and the probe holder on the back holds the leads very well and there is also a lead holder on the stationary clamp arm that is quite useful I have used that feature alot to hold the meter and probe stuff with one hand and have the probe in the other hand when a metal surface wasn't around to stick the meter to. Klein really thought well to make this a highly versatile meter!!!. I could have got one that has temperature but I already had a digital thermometer. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrillDaddy Nice tool!
Sometimes it's worth spending a little more on a tool. Something that measures electricity, used when you're trying to ascertain if a wire is live before you touch it, would be an excellent example of one of those times.
I've found this meter to be solidly reliable in its readings and has plenty of features for anyone this side of a master electrician.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techmaster Professional use. Does everything I need at a reasonable cost.
My old Amprobe gave up the ghost after40 years. Heartbreaking, but I had to replace it. This was at HD for a very reasonable price and I have used Klein hand tools for 47 years. An exceptional brand and quality of tools. So I decided to try their meters and am quite pleased with the results. I do wish I had gotten one with a backlight, but it is a little late for that. If this meter lasts half as well as some of the hand tools It will be a bargain. I still use my firts set of "Nines" that I got about 47 years ago.

The reading are not accurate, the ohms ready really bad for motor troubleshooting, voltage reading take long time to evaluate the range.
