As an amateur, I bought this multimeter after studying the reviews on it. Mastech was not a brand I recognised in meters, but not to worry, as when I started to use it, straight away it looked & felt like a quality, reliable piece of kit. The readings compared closely to 2 older meters I had. The case is solid & with a good holding grip. The selection dial is robust & rotates firmly but smoothly. The meter performs all the tasks I would ever need, & the autoranging works efficiently & pretty quickly. The display is large & clear, with an optional blue backlight which stays on for 15 secs. A good safety feature are the orange lamps indicating in/correct connection/polarity of the test probe shrouds. Nice one. The 10 amp fuse is ceramic, & sits under a cover on the rear of the meter, with the 3 x AAA batteries in a separate area to the fuse. I dont like the AAA batts. prefer AA's or even 9V. What else? The rear stand is solid enough to hold the meter steady. The test probes are well made & clip nicely onto the rear of the case. The leads are softish, but not silicone. Inc. is a multi func. socket to fit into the volt/com sockets which will accept K type temp. leads & hFE tests. This meter performs all usual tests. For £30.00 it will be on many amateurs shortlist. I recommend the MS8268, & I dont think you will be dissapointed (if you cant afford a pro. meter).

I had been managing with a £4.99 cheapie from my local Maplin's for a long time and I had begun to suspect its accuracy (...what a shocker). Deciding that I needed a grown-up machine, I did a lot of research and here is the result. Mastech's own site has an almost bewildering range of meters which makes choosing the right one a little tough.

I'm not going to give you the full spec, you can read it yourself here, I'm just going to tell about the features I really like. So apart from the fact it's got a clear screen, all the obvious A/V/Ω/F functions you'd want, it has a nifty gadget to make bare component measurement really easy and it's got a frequency / duty cycle function. This is great for messing about with arduino and other embedded processors - short of a proper oscilloscope (very expensive!) it's the next best thing for checking if your PWM output is good. And it just works! Other "icing" is the lights behind the lead sockets that show you which holes to use for each setting

I guess it's not earth-shatteringly new, but it's new to me and i love it, especially at this price. Load a 'duino analog sketch, poke the black probe into GND and red onto your chosen pin (usually 9) and hey presto you see 500 - the default 'duino PWM clock speed. Stab it again and - lo! - you see the duty cycle as a percentage. So if your code says "analogWrite(PIN_9,128);" the MS8268 shows 50%. Easy.

The second feature I really like is again probably not that new: perhaps it's a long time since I looked at multimeters. It goes by the unexciting name of "MS3206 Multi-function socket" but it tickles me pink every time I use it.

It's no £600 fluke meter but it certainly does the job. I use this every day working with electrical motors and generators, It proudly sits in my toolbox and is a great addition. Owned it for a few months now and I'm very happy with it so far.

Pros- Cheap, large, great stand, black light is a good addition, accurate measurements (compared side by side with workshop fluke meters) doesn't eat up batteries and some nice features the fluke ones do not have, such as beeping when the leads are in incorrect slots for the test being performed and a beep that sounds if you leave it on and forget about it, it turns itself off anyway but the beep is still a nice reminder.

Cons- AC voltage readings are sometimes hard to zero and they can fluctuate a lot more than a fluke would, the capacitance readings are not instant, they take a while to work through the auto ranges as you can not manually set it in capacitance mode. And the continuancy beep is a bit quiet. alright if its a quiet workspace but sometimes when a lot is happening it can be hard to hear.

well i had this in march, to replace a cheaper unit that was failing me
I ordered this based on the fact the review are pretty good and it was a nice price

As for the long term use - its had some light DIY use

The Auto functioning range is okay, and i've had no problems working on V DC with it
the problem comes to when your using it for resistance testing

To ensure good results - you check the resistance in the leads first
Where as the meter can give anything from 0.2 ohms upto 1.5ohms
And when its slightly warmer, its much worse

So how do you get a good result reading when you cant get a stable reading to start with...

testing the same item, one time it'll say its Milliohms resistance, next its ohms, then Kohms and its never the same reading, its always a LONG way off....

So for testing car items, its not suitable, and i would seriously avoid it

The feel is nice, the auto ranging saves time, the screen is nice and big, the lead position warning is nice
but i feel the price shows something else has to lack, and thats quality of readings
