Philex 83001R/S Digital Multimeter with Battery Test Function
Item purchased to replace an analogue multimeter. For the price it met my needs exactly. The unit is a comfortable size, it is robust and perfectly suited for the DIYer for household maintenance. The centre dial selection is positive and the display is clear. Handy that it has its own built in stand thereby freeing my hands for operating the leads. Tested all functions and it performs as advertised.
Not had it long enough to comment on reliability.

Philex 83001r/S multimeter
I purchased this to replace a RS25 multimeter that had reached the end of its life the Philex 83001R/S performs all the functions the old meter did but better and with a larger display, could have had a battery included but Brilliant.

Good while it lasts
I bought this to do continuity testing & general diy electronics/electrical.
Worked well for a while, but is now completely unresponsive to inputs - reads 0V no matter what. Seems as if the sockets that the leads fit into have stopped working.
Not used that much at all, and of course died when I really needed it.

The product is great but the leads let it down, especially the black. The fitting has broken where the lead joins it. Both ends no less. It almost as if too high a temperature has been used when moulding the wire into the plastic fittings. As a result it is brittle and the wire has broken off. Poor quality control.
