I had asked a question about this product that didnt get answered. I had that Q answered when I went to Walmart to buy it. Told me on the packaging what I wanted to know. This meter does all I would ever want one to do. It is by far a better one than I was using, even though it did cost twice as much, the old one never was of this caliber. I had used a small pocket size digital for years and got fed up with the battery usage and the fact that its batts were the little wafer type. This 10709 Etech uses the common "Triple A" , easy to get anywhere and it functions very accurately. On the 2 VDC scale I am able to measure Radiator voltage down to the hundredth of a volt. Very useful along with the temperature probe (either in liquid or against a solid object). It does have the audible signal for continuity tests! Forget trying to buy expensive meters just to do the ordinary, or the high tech either, THIS METER will do most of it very well. For just under 20 bucks, I dont think you can beat it!! I have been in the automobile diagnosis business for more than 50 years and I highly recommend purchasing this 10709 Etech meter for your personal needs or for the pro in a shop!

I have a large collection of digital multimeters, ranging from several cheap $3.98 meters from Harbor Freight to several $350 Fluke 87 meters. These meters have accumulated over a 40 year span as an electronics service tech. This meter was purchased for show and tell at a club I belong to. I've checked it against my $350 Fluke meters, and it is well within accuracy specifications. I keep it in my tool box for club activities. Is it as good as a Fluke? No it is not. But that Fluke meter sells for 15 times more than the Etek model.

This is a good multimeter priced appropriately. I use this for general electronics work and I'm pleased with the accuracy. I doubt that the professionals out there would be satisfied with it, but then it's clearly at a consumer price point. One thing to note - I accidently tested something I shouldn't have and blew the fuse. I was happy to see that the fuse is easily replaceable. On some "value" meters, the fuse is soldered directly to the board. If I had it to do over, I'd buy it again.

The first one I purchased had the continuity test tone continuously sounding, even without probes attached. I returned and exchanged it. The replacement meter meets all my exceptions for this price-point, and exceeds many of them. Whilst it's obviously not a high-end or professional meter, it is adequate for the average home owner, electronics hobbyist or auto troubleshooting. As of this writing, the Walmart website incorrectly states "[the multimeter] uses one "AA" battery, which is included." This is incorrect, as the device uses two AAA batteries. Which are included. The probes are of decent quality with ratings printed on them. The caps are not solidly retained, but are a nice included item. Test probes were somewhat difficult to insert but securely attach. Each probe is insert is fully shrouded for safety, eliminating the risk of accidental contact with them if not fully inserted. Safety. The meter seems to be of solid construction. Batteries are easily accessible for replacement with one screw. The screw has a threaded metal insert, which I did not expect for a meter of this price point. As it is likely you will have to replace batteries more than a few times in it's life, this will save some pain. Self tapping screws into plain old plastic are fine for situations in which they are rarely, if ever, removed. However, for a battery compartment, this metal insert is a must! If dropped, the device may suffer from the lack of a distinct protective enclosure or rubberized armor. The outer yellow case does offer some protection, but I would recommend avoiding dropping it, just in case. (like that's going to be possible) Inclusion of the temperature function and probe is nice, whilst not a necessity or something I would commonly use. My initial testing showed it to be reasonably accurate, although somewhat unstable in the reading. Again, a nice feature for this price point, however. The non-contact voltage detection is a good feature and functioned as expected. I would not recommend using this meter in lieu of a dedicated voltage probe for safety. They are cheap enough that you should have one if you plan to do much (or any) work on AC wiring. Better to spend a few dollars than to die saving them. Just my opinion. Another great feature is the large display with backlight. The numbers are clear and distinct and the amber colored backlight is not overbearing, whilst adequately illuminating the display. Onscreen range indicators are small and easy to overlook. As with any manual ranging multimeter, care should always be taken to ensure the proper selection to avoid damage and or injury. The included carry "case" (bag) is adequate, especially for a sub $20 meter. I've surely overlooked several things, but that is my initial impression. I would recommend this meter for the price, features and quality. You really cannot ask for more at $20 or less. Compared to the $3-10 junk meters, this is an exceptional device. Compared to the $400 advanced meters, it is still adequate for general use. It's likely that if you need a $400 meter, you would not be considering this one and already know that.

For working on my car and other odd jobs around the house, this multimeter is perfect. I've been using an analog multimeter from RadioShack for years, but I needed one which gave me digital readout in tenths and hundredths for my low voltage project, and this Etek 10709 fits perfectly. The very low price makes me wonder how accurate it is, but after testing on various batteries, it seems accurate enough. I've not tried the temperature probe yet. The build feels solid, the case is plastic, so it will probably break if dropped on a hard surface. But at this price, who cares? One thing I did discover is the display (which is easy to read) jumps around a lot unless you have a solid contact with what you're measuring. I found using clips helps it be stable. For all the bells and whistles this has, at this price, it's wonderful.
