      I have not tried to measure any caps in circuit yet, but the meter made accurate measurements of caps out of circuit on every range. I did find that the probes that come with the meter have banana connectors that are rather short, and the insulation over the banana connectors prevents them from making good contact in the sockets in the meter. I simply trimmed back the insulation and now they work fine. I am very pleased with this meter.

      Great little meter. MCM was fast with my order. Been using for computer mother boards. Not found a cap I can't check. Meter has been right on the money. I have much faster repair time with this meter.

      I purchased this meter several months ago and have never regretted it. I had a need for a portable capacitance meter to use in the field. This meter is very accurate (readings within .1% of my Fluke bench tester. I purchased this meter while on sale and was very surprised with the quality and accuracy. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a quality capacitance meter.

      I purchased this meter to use in trouble shooting flatscreen LCD monitor repairs and I am very pleased with my purchase. The price and quality was great and I would recommend it to any technician needing a way to test diodes, caps, transistors, and resistors. Thank you MCM for being here for us and having the things we need for our small business. Ron S.

      THIS METER WORKS GREAT AND I CAN NOW MEASURE LOW OHMS WITH 2 DIGITS PAST THE DECIMAL POINT. THE CLIP LEADS THAT COME WITH THIS METER ARE NICE. THE DIGITS ARE NICE AND BIG!!! ALSO.
