    Does the job very well, compared to more expensive models. My remediation service had one that cost a lot more and we had the same readings.

    Here is a product that lives up to the Klein reputation for quality and utility. This moisture meter measures the moisture in drywall, masonry, softwood and hardwood. I have used it to measure moisture levels after repairing drywall, painting and applying mortar to concrete block. Using the meter to measure the moisture content provided information on when I could apply a second coat of paint, mortar and drywall mud. It has a sturdy outer case and an easy to read clear display. There are three buttons, an on button, a mode button that changes the material to be measured, and a hold button to save readings. The screen measures 1 1/2 inches by 1 1/2 inches.

    This is a great moisture meter and I find it accurate. It is pinless which avoids the little damage a pinned meter can cause. The settings are great: drywall, masonry, hardwood (oak, maple, etc.) and softwood (pine, poplar, etc.). The moisture meter is very easy to use, I didn't even have to look at the directions. It comes with a 9v battery so you can get it started quickly. You can easily hold a reading too. It measures as accurate as my pinned meter although I find the pine better for some jobs, like inspecting the top of fascia boards under roof shingles. One thing I did find odd with this moisture meter is it considered some moist drywall near a window of mine (@ 25%) as dry. One downside I found to this meter is it does not have a loop/lasso for holding or hanging it in the workshop.

    Just bought and immediately took it to my rental
    Moisture problems in the wall at a rental unit. I grabbed this Klein and took it over to the apartment and was immediately able to identify the problem areas and save myself a lot of time. Worked great.

      Did not work out of the package
      First time use. Installed the battery, pushed the on button, nothing except a beeping sound, screen did not light up. NADA. Going to return it and buy another one to see if this was just a dud but reading the reviews sounds like Home Depot might want to reconsider selling junk.
