Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Devo Questionable quality
It worked as advertised upon trying it out when I initially bought it. However, the very next time I attempted to use it, the audible alert volume was extremely low and could barely be heard. I thought that I had inadvertently set it to silent mode but no matter what I tried (new battery, holding the power button for 2 seconds, removing the battery for 1 hour, etc.), nothing would increase the volume. I realize I could've used it as is but I'd prefer that the unit function as Klein Tools intended. Maybe I just got a bad one...I dunno. Nevertheless, I returned it and got a different brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cblouch Very handy
Really nice for diagnosing electrical lines that may or may not be connected. Outlet testers and meters are handy but sometimes it's just a bunch of wire nuts in a box and you're trying to figure out which ones go to which circuit. Just put the point of the probe near the wire and it lights/beeps to let you know there is power. Also nicer than a meter for probing as it will sense through insulation so you don't have to pull things apart to check. I put off getting one of these for a long time because of the cost but I'm glad I finally sprung for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harv Good for Now/ Buy the Fluke Later
The tester does what its supposed to. I find it more durable than the Milwakee and other brands that are trying to rival the Fluke by pricing lower. For the person who's on a budget or needs to replace a lost/broken one to finish the job right away, its a good product. Its not expensive, especially if it saves you from getting electrocuted. I would definitely use it until I can afford a Fluke which proved to be more accurate in pin pointing hot wires in a bunch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Initial Diagnosis
Before I pull out my wire strippers and digital voltage tester ,I always use my inductive tester for initial diagnosis of a problem or even just to check if a " known to be de-energized " circuit really is. A $20 investment in this product can save a lot of money in blown out cutters.
Also, if you do a lot of work on old ungrounded circuits you will find a digital meter will give a false no voltage reading if you have an open neutral, this product helps avoid that misdiagnosis.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Alba13 Couldn't get it to work properly
The manual instructions are not clear. I tried several attempts to check a known outlet that worked. I could only get it to switch to the green but not the blue side. The Blue light would go to red and blink continuously. Lame. It also would not indicate either by sound or light that a known outlet was on. I'm taking it back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinkerD It Works!
This Tester REALLY work, low voltage, tripped breakers, the different tones to let you know if its High or low voltage, On Off button, great. I recently replaced my work voltage test because my old one would fall apart or you didn't know if the batteries were good. Solid construction, but make sure to send the few dollars more for the low voltage, because a shock is a shock!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kevin very good product
I really don't have time I have used products like this for years and this volt meter is probably one of the best.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daniel Works Great!
Originally I bought a Commercial Electric digital multimeter. That thing is unpredictable and does not work. If you're wanting to know what you're working on has power to it or not, the Dual Range Non-Contact Voltage Tester is the perfect way to go. If you want to know how much power is supplied to something try a different multimeter not made by Commercial Electric Model # MAS830B.
