Compared with RT210, RT250 can measure & display time to trip breaker, and with LCD it's easier to read test results.

RT250 has a LCD display, RT210 uses a combination of LED lights. RT250 can measure & show voltage and trip time, RT210 cannot.

RT250 is selling at Amazon for $50, this might be a good deal.

Would this replace everything in the 3 pc set. Or is it better to buy the 3 pc set. I just something more advance than a pen tester to tell me if there power.

No. RT250 is a dedicated GFCI/standard receptacle tester. The 3 pc set include RT210 GFCI/standard receptacle tester, AC/DC voltage tester, also non-contact voltage tester. The last two can be used in other applications.

The most important advantage of RT250 is it can tell GFCI trip time. One reviewer mentions he/she used this tool to find out two GFCIs are too slow to trip and replaced them.

I ended up buy the 3 pc set.
