I received a promotional discount during a promotion for the purpose of testing, evaluation and review. I thoroughly enjoyed trying this meter out and because I already have such a meter, I gave this to my son in law for Christmas. He was very excited to get it and will probably use it more for engine analyzing since he is a car buff. He commented that it had some great features. Based on my experience with it, I would definitely recommend it as I feel that it is a quality multimeter.
