Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JohnS Lots of features.
This multi-meter has a load of features. It can measure most anything you would encounter on a daily basis in the electrical and HVAC field. It's a good size for holding in your hand. It also has a back stand. The leads store in the back of the meter, although I think including a case would be better to contain loose leads wires. You can also place one lead in the meter, while you hold the meter in one hand and another lead in the other. The leads include screw-on/off spring clips (alligator clips). The ends of the leads have good strain relief and a 90 degree connector on the end to the meter. I think this should hold up well.
The display has large numbers; easy to read. All functions are clearly labeled on the display and the control buttons/dials. And the brief but complete instructions tell you how to use all the features.
The unit takes a little getting used to as you have certain settings that will require you to push multiple buttons for settings. I found I had to re-read the instructions for some less-used functions. Some functions are not very intuitive. So keep the instructions handy for awhile.
Other features: Auto Power Off, magnetic hanger accessory (not included), case (not included), bar graph at bottom of display for analog readout, backlight, continuity test, fuse test.
Overall, a great performer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Allthingsvu Sturdy and solid
This thing is feels very solid and sturdy. The grip is great. The dial nob is strong. Everything feels very solid. I did a temp reading test and it was very accurate. It even has a kickstand. I like it very much and would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JD33401 A Better Display than a Fluke 115 and Lower Cost Makes the Kline MM2000 a Good Value
I am a big fan of Fluke. It was my meter of choice when I worked as an electrician. It lasted decades and my son uses it today. So I did a side by side comparison of the Kline MM2000 and the Fluke 115. The Klein has a better display, with larger letters. The buttons on the Fluke have a better response but the buttons on the Kline are fine. Both are accurate enough for electrical work. Both are new so I can't address durability over time. For my money, the Kline MM2000 is a better value. I really liked the larger backlit display.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky5300 Love This Meter
I'm a little surpised at the negative review I saw for this as my experience is more in line with everyone else.
When I first saw this meter I immediatley noticed the large display however I wasn't trully impressed until I held it in my hand and turned the meter on. I've used this meter for almost a year now and I have zero complaints. Most of my professional experience has been using Fluke meters but I can't tell you how pleased I am with the MM2000. For the price, you just can't beat this.
A few things to note:
The leads are a little short however this is more of a preference.
The fuses and batteries are easily accessible, which is not the same for other brands.
Instructions are not beginner friendly but from what I've heard this meter is intended for pros and skilled DIYers

This intermittent dial cost me 3 days of work. The auto-off function is a total pain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EleEng A Durable and Accurate Measurement Instrument
As an electrical engineer I have owned and used a number of multimeters over my career. So far I am very impressed with the MM 2000. It is truly user friendly with its large display screen. The outer casing appears to be very durable and the instrument itself is accurate in the measurements taken. I will probably purchase the recommended carrying case to protect it during transit, plus store the test and thermocoupler leads.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by daveb714 Well built multimeter but more than I need for my abilities
This multimeter is a good, well built, sturdy machine. It has a bright, clear, easy to read display that includes a back light for use in low light conditions. It also includes a fold out stand so you can read it without having to hold up the device. The only issue with this machine for me is it can do far more things than my abilities allow. I primarily want to use it for checking voltages in outlets, batteries, etc. This device has settings for things I'm not even aware of. I'm not saying this as a negative thing and for someone with more knowledge, this would be a much more useful device.
