My house was flooded and it came in very handy. Very easy to operate. I was able to determine when the wood was dry enough to start repairs.

Purchased this meter today to prep for laying wood flooring. I doubted its accuracy based on some of the reviews so I kept the receipt. I called a family friend who does flooring as a profession and asked him to use his meter to gauge the moisture in our subfloor. He used a Delmhorst meter. The percentages were exactly the same. This one was priced as listed. He stated that the one he has was a couple hundred. I'd say for a DYIer it's an effective and reliable tool. Added a few pics to show different applications as well as a non-typical application.
