Does the job it's supposed too. I bought this to check moisture levels of tobacco, I roll my own and the new machine I use works best when the moisture level is about 10-11%.

Works OK, except sometimes you have to take two readings. Maybe I need to get used to it - maybe I'm not positioning the pins evenly.

Wish I had gone for the pin-less models. Pins are very short (<1/4”).

Switching between the two ranges of moisture content is frustrating and time consuming. Also the time to initialize is comparatively longer. I'm comparing this to a similarly priced meter that I've had for about 8 years.

Very useful tool, was purchased to test for moisture content in wood flooring and wall after minor water seepage. Sensitive and very effective at locating problem areas. The LED readout is very easy to read.
