HOLDPEAK HP-770HC Digital Multimeter 6000 Counts Automatic Range Multi Meter Current/Voltage (DC/AC)/Resistance Tester Overload Protection Voltage Checker Backlit With Test Leads
★Non Contact Voltage Test(NCV): When the detection of voltage is greater than 90V(RMS), keep close to the conductor, the instrument sensor will light and buzz
★Over load protection & continuity test: use the ptc protection circuit for resistance, temperature and frequency measurement. If measured resistance less than 100Ω, the buzzer will sound
★Auto-ranging & auto-power off: dc & ac current ( 600A range with ac/dc current clamp adapter), resistance, capacitor, frequency, duty cycle, temperature, transistor hfe
★Low battery indication & blacklit lcd: 3 1/2 digit lcd display for visibility in dimly lit areas. Feature a low battery indicator so you never accidentally run out of juice
★Accurately measures AC/DC Voltage; AC/DC Current; Resistance, Capacitor, Frequency and Temperature
★Transistor hFE Test/ Non Contact AC Voltage (NCV) Test/ Diode assembly Test
★Features Data Hold, LED Auto Back Light, Auto Power Off, Continuity Buzzer, °C and ℉ Select; True RMS;

Works well, good quality and got it on sale .
When I looked at this meter when I requested it, I saw all the knob positions and was thinking that it required a lot of manual range changes. But the knob positions aren’t for range changes they are for function changes. There are so many functions on this meter and for this price, it is quite amazing. The display is large and easy to read. One thing that puzzled me when I took it out of the case was that some of the input jack positions were closed off and covered with yellow plastric. It turn out that when you change functions, it covers the inputs you are not using, so you can’t plug into jack inputs that are for some other measurement. The instructions mention an AC/DC current clamp as an optional feature. This one did not have that included, but it sounds like something useful. There is a powerful magnet on the back that would allow this meter to be held in place against a metal cabinet. The included thermal probe works. This is not a bad choice for a general purpose everything meter.
This meter comes well packaged in a handy little case. I'm a big fan of cases for equipment with pieces so that's a big plus right there. Construction of this multi-meter is definitely a couple steps above the base models you find on Amazon. The case is a bit larger as well (although not as large as the product picture with all the colored wires would have you think) which accommodates multiple functions you won't find on base models including larger screen, temperature probe, non-contact voltage detection, and the flip out stand on the back. It also has a feature I love that I've only seen on 1 other, much more expensive, meter: The probe connectors are covered by yellow plastic covers that slide open/closed based on the dial option you choose. In other words, its essentially impossible to get the probes in the wrong place for the wrong activity! Nifty. Surprisingly, I found the NCV test more useful than I expected. Its not something I have on my other meters, but I found myself using it at random times.
Everything I tested with this meter worked and it seems well-built so I feel confident giving it a 'Recommended' rating. The only downsides are 1) the battery compartment screws go into soft plastic and i expect they'd strip easily if someone is in a hurry. 2) A lack of instructions. All you get is one small sheet printed front and back that is basically a feature reference. Even the cheapo meters I buy for my kids come with a small booklet explaining operation.
Meter is really convenient. I like the backlight. I wisht th backlight weren't automatic; I'd like to be able to turn it on by myself.
I wasn't sure I'd like the safety feature of covers that prevent you from plugging in the leads incorrectly. I'm still not sure I like it, because it means you often have to remove the leads before changing ranges or turning off the meter. But it does prevent a mistake from damaging the meter.
I like the included case; it lets me store everything neatly.
All in all, I'm glad a bought it.
