My favorite meter! I've bought three of these now, two I have given away. A great feature is the test lead sockets light up red to indicate their correct position, if you have a lead in the wrong spot, it will flash the correct socket and sound an audible alarm.

Display is nice and big, with a nice backlight. Temperature can be in C or F, very nice. Requires AAA batteries, and it does seem to eat them faster than most meters.

I use this meter mainly for temperature, light, DC / AC votls, ohms and amps. I can say its proven to be very accurate for me, but I've never tested the meter against RH or Sound.

Its branded Cen-Tech, but looks exactly like the Protek 6300, maybe its been re-branded. Its normal price is 39.99, and its worth every penny.

This is a decent weekend warrior multimeter. Checked against my Fluke 87 it is accurate for DC work. It is not true RMS so I can't say it is accurate at anything but 60 hz AC sine wave. It lights up the matching test lead sockets when the range switch is changed and blinks when the wrong socket is connected. RH does not seem very accurate, and the sound level function is almost useless as the reading bounces all over the range. Test leads are decent and the thermocouple is also good. Temperature readings are withing specs also.
