Just got one so a bit soon to say, but seems very good quality, much better than the kewtech one it replaced.

I got the tpak hanger thingy that goes with it, the magnet is great for hanging the meter on a steel panel while testing. Also has a hook, and a velcro strap too which can be use to secure the meter if theres no where to put it.
