More multimeter than I probably need but am satisfied with the quality and features

I am not an electrician nor am I very well versed in using a multimeter. My needs are quite basic actually but I needed to replace a 30+ year old analog meter I had that I had purchased at Radio Shack... it was an old Micronta. It served its purpose as far as allowing me to test batteries, check continuity and measure AC voltages but it was time for it to go.

I decided to upgrade to a more capable digital multimeter with auto-ranging and I also wanted one that had a thermocouple so I could measure temperatures. I probably could have been quite happy with the MM200 Klein Tools MM200 Auto Ranging Multimeter but it lacked alligator clip attachments for the test leads and for the small difference in price between the MM200 and MM1000, I just decided to opt for the MM1000 as it had several other features that appealed to me such as the Analog Bar Graph.

In spite of my upgrade, I'm still a relative neophyte when it comes to using a digital multimeter so my "review" of it will be covering only the most basic informamtion.

It has a pretty good feel to it. I'ts fairly solid in the hand and the rubber sleeve is close fitting and seems to be quite protective of the instrument. The multimeter must be removed from the sleeve to access the battery compartment. It is powered by 2-AAA batteries (included and pre-installed). A big plus for this multimeter is that the fuses are also located in the battery compartment so you don't need to take the entire back of the multimeter apart to access the fuses like you do on many other multimeters. One of the fuses is: F 440mA 1000V 1R 10kA (Fast Acting FLU 44/100A 1000V AC/DC).

Great meter for the money

By A. Leckart on June 17, 2012

Had always thought when my ancient 25 year old multimeter died I'd replace it with a Fluke. When it happened (of course) I needed a replacement quickly, and found this at the big orange box store. I love Klein tools, and the features and design of this meter, when weighed against the (more than reasonable) price made it a no brainer. I'm thrilled with it. The Klein multimeter case (sold separately) fits this beautifully without the leads....with the leads it's a little tight. I put the meter in the case, then the case and the leads in one of the Klein tool pouches. For the money this is a great meter. Note that is does not measure true RMS.

Nice, works as expected.

By Rick on January 4, 2013

I needed a multimeter with capacitor checking capabilities. I have used the meter on several good and bad capacitors and obtained what appear to be accurate readings. Haven't yet checked out all the other functions, but DC voltages and resistance/continuity work fine. This is not a true RMS device but for half the price, I think it is a good buy.

Great multimeter!

By Matt Wyder on April 5, 2014

Amazon Verified Purchase

This is a great multimeter. It has almost all the same features as the expensive Fluke 87's or 83's, but 1/5th of the price!

PROS:
Bright backlight, for working in dim lighting.

CAT III / IV rating - This means that it is made to certain safety standards for working with high energy circuits. It has plastic barriers between the internal circuits to prevent arcing. It has High Rupture Capacity ceramic fuses. It has thick, high-current traces on the circuit board. Cheaper multimeters aren't designed for high energy circuits. They have cheap glass fuses and other wimpy parts that can actually be dangerous if you're working with 120V or more.

CONS:
The case is very difficult to remove and you have to remove it to replace the two AAA batteries.

The Diode Check function only goes up to 2 volts, so it won't light up white or blue LEDs at all. (White and blue LEDs have Forward Voltages of about 3.6V. Red LEDs light up at less than 2V)

Worthy 5 star

Hubby loves this thing!! He said it's the best tool he's ever had. I can't recommend it more highly for any shade tree mechanic. It does it all.

Good Meter

By kj on October 14, 2013

Good meter for the money. They need to sell it with the case though. Just another way to get $10. more, as it does need a case.
