As a stereo installer I use a multimeter just about everyday. Between voltage, impedance, continuity, current draw testing my ole trusty Fluke meter gets quite the workout. When it came time to put together a nice tool set that would stay at home rather than the shop, I decided to look into less expensive options. The Uni-T multimeter was a great addition and a small fraction of the cost of my shop meter. Although less expensive it still provides all of the features I typically use and even gives me one my fluke does not, Square wave output, which is on the “D” model only. Although I have not had a chance to use that feature yet, I am excited about the possibilities, yes, nerdy as that sounds.
Overall, I am very pleased with the Uni-T UT33D. Great functionality, size is small without being too small, has a nice big backlight controlled by a button and the price is right. The test leads fit great into the meter with no wiggle room, test tips are nice as well. I’d personally like to see a little larger gauge wire for the leads but that may just be because I use meters a lot. Certainly not a deal breaker and understandable for its price point.
Bottom line, do you need a good multimeter but don’t want to spend big bucks? Try this one out! You’ll be glad you did.
