@Wnderer: For $99 you can get a Mooshimeter for your cell phone.

OK, I have to admit that scores pretty highly on the "Ooh, Shiny!" meter LOL

@mhrackin: The quality may be much better now...

When they arive, I'll perform a few tests using known voltages and resistances to se how closely they corrolate with each other and with higher-end units.

Downside to cheap DMMs

The quality may be much better now, but a few years back I bought what looked like a cheap Chinese knock-off of a Fluke with some nice added functions.  However, it was very poorly calibrated and had a bunch of interacting pot adjustments that made it  a major chore to calibrate properly.   Not being very patient, I used it uncalibrated with mental correction of readings until about a year ago when I spent the time to recal it.

@ntedeluvian: Seriously though I would like to know how well the Jaycar ones perform.

I was planning on sending you one when they arrive ... watch this space...

@Elizabeth: ...so height and width are a bit larger than the Jacar one but it's thinner...

We will have to compare notes about things like "look and feel" when they arrive...

not to mention that it's larger than the one I got for half the price

That is rather tasty -- but it's $36 from Amazon, which seems a bit steep considering the price tag of the JayCar offering...

Why don't you get one and let us know which is better value? (I am happy to spend your money!).

Seriously though I would like to know how well the Jaycar ones perform. We have had subcontractors who used non-name brand meters only to find that they stopped working at inopportune times and then called us in to try and debug why the product didn't work. Plugged in a Fluke and the measurement was fine.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
