So far, i’m Pleased.
November 8, 2017
I bought it. It arrived. I’ve used just 4-times (about 10 minutes each) in just w-days! Now Etekcity wants a review! Geez, give me a break! I’ve had it w-days, used it about 40-minutes total and they want their 5-star review. So here it is: I like it. It came with a 9v battery already installed. The packaging was very protective. You can easily read the LCD screen. The measurements I’ve taken (continuity and DC voltage) appear to be accurate for the size and price point of a meter such as this. The end. For now.
A VERY GOOD METER for the price
October 7, 2017
After several "LOW" end meters from the bargain tool store I woke up. Your meter feels solid and well made, it has some heft , the leads are made of quality materials and are sturdy(I appreciate the dust/debri caps). A VERY GOOD METER for the price.
Good
January 11, 2017
Works great but it does screw up and jus say .1 or something like that when you as the user screws up say you had it on the wrong setting pops a fuse or something yea thats how mines happen i worked fine with constant use for over 2 months mostly in car for my sounds then one day one of my wall outlets wasnt working wanted to check and make sure it really was out had it on dc instead of ac because of habit then pop dam there goes my cheap but good multimeter if your on a budget then this will do if your looking for something more legit then i would say keep looking this is not the best but also not the worst
A very good tool to have
August 23, 2016
This is a very good tool offered at an excellent price. If you work on electronics or are simply trying to identify a problem with your home wiring then I think you will enjoy having one of these in your tool box. Back in the day, the good old days, something like this meter would have cost at least 4 times what this one is being offered at and you might have had to settle for an analog version as the early digital versions were very costly and generally much larger.
Great unit.
August 22, 2016
For the money, I could not be more pleased. It functions well, feels good in the hands and does the job. I use it for simple procedures like checking resistance and verifying trailer wiring voltages. You get a lot of functionality for the money. I
What I most appreciate is the range of calibrated values that the unit can check allowing the user to see subtle changes at the lower ranges. The incremental values help pinpoint the accuracy of each measurement

recommend this unit without reservation.
Big help in kids science experiments
August 9, 2016
I have purchased 3 of the Digital Multimeters for use in a science camp I teach as a volunteer to intercity children grades 4 through 6. In the experiment, the students make a super battery and check the voltage as they add cells and in another experiment, they make a flashlight with an LED powered by pennies and zinc washers. The multimeter works perfectly as it has a large range of voltages. The continuity feature was especially useful to show students where the problem existed by tracing each component of the super battery. The meter is tough and the readings are very clear. They have added a lot to the experiments. I would recommend them without any reservations.

Good Value
June 14, 2017
Good value. Very handy to keep closer than the shop for quick battery, bulb, wire, and line voltage checks. Miss having automatic timed "off", though so it's easy to forget and run through a set of batteries in a short time.
Good DMM, great price.
June 10, 2017
This is a great price for a DMM. It's well made and rugged enough for garage use. It has a kickstand for easier viewing, and the backlight is a nice feature. I have only two suggestions for improvement: make the battery easier to replace, and include a set of probes with clip leads.
the directions are no better. Don't purchase this if you're an amateur
April 7, 2017
While I have no issue with the multi meter, I haven't the the slightest clue how to use it. Unfortunately, the directions are no better. Don't purchase this if you're an amateur. This unit is for well versed and knowledgeable people.

On the bright side, this thing seems to have all the bells and whistles. You can also hold your measurement. Additionally, it has a handy light on the screen if needed. It's a neat gadget, hands down.
Great hobbyist multimeter.
September 19, 2016
I'm a very newbie DIY electronics hobbyist. I'm just getting started with electricity testing my projects. I ordered this product to test my pigrrl zero that I put together. Very surprised by the packaging, presentation and quality of this multimeter. As a designer I tend to judge how companies package their product and I must say that Etekcity values their product. I'm not an expert and only probably used 10% of what the device can do but I could very easily make sure my soldered wires were active. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a multimeter.
Rugged and does what you need...
May 17, 2016
Good little rugged voltmeter for the price.

One time, I left this sitting in the sun in Phoenix and it heated up to the point where it was too hot to hold for long, and the display turned black and the device was temporarily unusable. When it cooled down, it went back to normal and worked just fine though, so I guess that is a testament to the quality of parts used in this device...

Does not have some of the special functions that you see on more expensive models however, but has the minimum functions you would expect from a multimeter.

Works fine, except the manual and instructions are barely enough ...
August 22, 2017
Works fine, except the manual and instructions are barely enough for people that are not familiar with electronics lingo. You have to basically look it up on You tube or internet search.
Maybe I did it wrong?
February 8, 2017
Make sure you understand how this thing works and test it.
I had someone else try it and we could not get a strait answer..
Person went to get his own multimeter..
Works ok. I'm retired. Suitable for my needs ...
December 6, 2016
Works ok. I'm retired. Suitable for my needs now. But I'm spoiled. I have owned Fluke's in my past life as an electronic tech. No comparison.
It works okay I guess but would not recommend for work
June 28, 2016
I just got a chance to use this the other day, i got it just to have one around the house and maybe to keep in a tool bag at work. It works okay I guess but would not recommend for work. I tried testing the leads for continuity and it kept going in and out, should be a smooth steady tone. This doesn't fill me with confidence to take this out into the field.

failed after six months
June 22, 2017
Worked well but failed after six months of occasional use.
Frustrating the tiny screws lost thread immediately
August 21, 2016
My frustration came in trying to remove the two tiny screws to access the battery. They were tiny philips head screws and after a few unsuccessful attempts the thread was broken. After trying many more times I was finally able to get a very small flat head lock in to unscrew them. I'm not going to bother screwing back in so I'll be holding the body together with duct tape.
Cheap Product
April 23, 2016
This little multimeter was perfect for the price, until it stopped measuring literally everything. I can't get it to register anything on hot wires or outlets, which makes it essentially useless for the purpose I bought it. I'd only had it for a few months and used it a handful of times before it failed, but the return period has already expired.

Difficult to figure out, Had to go on YouTube to learn how to use it. but the next step up.

doesn't measure body voltage
September 18, 2017
i bought this to measure my body voltage and it seems as though it does not measure AC voltage at the units required to pick this up
Based on my experience, I would pass on this one and not recommend.
September 15, 2017
I guess I got a bad one. I don't use multi meters often so I bought this inexpensive Etekcity MSR-R500. It never worked correct leading me to believe I was doing something wrong. Eventually after putting it in the hands of experienced people I found that it was giving bogus or no readings at all. Tried taking it apart to try and calibrate but to no avail. This is a cheap unit but you take a chance on cheap and I lost. I bought it only because the reviews are very good. Make me wonder now why.

It is not useful as it described. The reading off.....
Buy better one, waste $$

Doesn't appear to have voltage protection which is necessary for any meter.
