I agree, a great deal and from what I've read, they hold up better than you might expect. (Don't, of course, expect Fluke quality.) The only problem I have with this HF unit is that the leads are not self-contained so the can be separated/lost/tangled up with other gear.... and the unit is not enclosed/protected when not in use. But at $5, these are hardly deal breakers. OTOH, the one I posted earlier was only $10 shipped to my door and these features were worth $5 to me. I also prefer the AAA batteries over 9V.
