Lots of functionality, love the temperature capability, and it has decent build quality
Overall, I think that this is a great multimeter. Years ago, a bought one from Radio Shack (back when it was an actual store) that cost about the same and was plenty cool looking - but this one is actually more functional. I have a much more expensive unit from FLIR that beats this one, but for under $35, this is a very nice meter.
I'm really happy to see thermocouple (TC) capability getting more prevalent in less expensive units like this, and they did a good job with it. The TC is well made and very easy to use, and you can (as you'd expect) toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit.
The cables are all well made with protective caps, and the main unit is fairly sturdy. You can tell that it's mostly plastic, and it won't feel like a $300 meter - but it's not a $300 meter, it's a ~$30 meter. For that cost, I think it's made well. The built in stand is handy, but the magnetic strap doesn't seem very useful to me.
From what I've tried, it seems to be accurate. I don't use these professionally and just use them around the house for various things (like verifying that my home AC compressor had shorted to ground...RIP, my friend), so I can't say how accurate it really is. It certainly works for continuity (my main use of these things) and temperature, so I'm happy.
