    I bought this to get me through 2 analog electronics classes, but it won't turn on consistently after just 6 months. Not a battery issue, I turn the dial off and back on again and sometimes it turns on, but most of the time the screen just stays blank and doesn't respond. Sometimes it shows FFFF with all the status indicators lit up (like its in initialization) but then never gets past that screen. Then I turn off and back on again and screen doesn't respond. Buy a DMM elsewhere.
