SparkFun VC830L multimeter

I want the SparkFun VC830L multimeter, to replace a $10, no-name multimeter that I’ve had for a few years (and it still works, but the probes are falling apart).

This is for all those starving students that need to buy their first good, low-cost multimeter. This meter has really impressive overall feel for being so low-cost. We’ve played with a lot of cheap-o DMMs and found that this unit’s function selector has a great, solid, clicking feel to it. This unit has good continuity (rare for low-cost units), and decent probes.

And while I’m at it, I’d also like a GE 50957 GFCI Tester. I’m weird about plugging a multimeter into an outlet in order to test for incorrect wiring.
