They're all cheap china units.
Who the heck does need three? lol

I mean I have at least three multimeters myself but they're all from different times. Two (a old-skool Fluke 77, and a UEI) belonged to my dad, who was an electrician; the last one is a small Equus automotive-designed one (I use this one the most TBH despite it being far cheaper than the other two). I guess the nice thing about this Amazon one is the EBTN LCD it has. My UEI has a green front-lit screen on it, but my other two have no lighting at all. I've never really felt the need for any of them to be visible in low light but it is a nice feature. Oh and it has TrueRMS so that's good too.

A fluke buys about 20 of these.
I use my multimeter for professional work. For non professional work I guess one of these is ok, but there is no need for 3 of these. In short order all 3 will be in a landfill.

A middle ground would be a used fluke off ebay, I have a fluke 8020B that is older than me which still works great and was purchased for about $50 on ebay.
I workout to get big so I can pickup bricks and ****.

If you are not satisfied with the quality, you can deal with Amazon's usual great return policy.
Kurtz7834 wrote: Just fill in "Inaccurate website description" or "missing warranty card." They don't check any of this anyways, at least not on low end items.

They are cracking down on return fraud, people buying a new item and returning an older, previously owned defective item, etc. things like that.

But still, given what I've seen of cheap multimeters (and I have a few myself), I would spend more to get a quality brand name. Of course if you don't have a mutlimeter at all, and you're too cheap to buy a decent one, better to have something than nothing.
He’s right, that’s for fraud. And as for the return reason that’s not clamping down.

Three returns at once is nothing.

You are obviously not a heavy amazon user. I have things arriving pretty much daily.

And I return a ton!

In fact, I use UPS as my return partner and I am even refunded by amazon within 2 hours of UPS scanning in the package.

Please, if you are an honest Amazon user, don’t worry.

They are seriously the best.

I would like to add I have never scammed, so maybe I have a trusted rating?

Is this dead? Just tried to order but can't see the promo any more. Is there a special process or code I'm missing?

My first was an analog one (you know, the floating needle that smacked itself so hard against the max range pin if you didn’t select the right range), possibly from Radio Shack. Probably got in high school.

Next and current is the Fluke 77. I’ll only replace it if it dies :)

Ha yeah I had one of them too, dad gave it to me when I was a kid. Not sure what happened to that thing, I know I never broke it, but just "graduated" to using the Fluke after my dad a. brought one home; b. let me use it after a year or two lol. Back then these things must have been super expensive.
