I can't begin to tell you how many times I needed to test a circuit in the basement I am remodeling just to try and figure out what the homeowner did! It got to the point where I needed to move from one branch to another quickly and my plug in unit was just too slow and didn't always help me find the power source I was seeking.
I went to Sears and poked around and ound this set. It was cheap ($15 on sale regular price is $25) and, while I didn't neccesarily need the multi-meter I couldn't pass on the deal!
The voltage detector is a simple device but it has saved me on a couple of occassions already in finding a power source I thought I had cut off before opening it up to fix it! The flashing light and loud beeping alert you quick before finding out the old fashioned way that you missed a breaker, a plus when it's a 220 VAC circuit!
The multi-meter is pretty basic although it does have a battery scale for 9v and 1.5v batteries so even the better half or kids can tell if a battery is worth keeping or recycling.
For the money you get a good dependable set of tools than can quite possibly save your life!
I purchased this today because my more expensive meter wont give the buzzing sound when detecting continuity, numbers read correctly but no beeping sound. So I went out and got this and with out even touching the leads the beep goes on and as I very gently even change the pressure by which I am holding the multimeter in my had the beep changes tone. That is a bad sign of the internals quality. On top of all that the unit feels light and cheap, I know that is not indicative of all things feeling that way, but in this case it should serve as a sign. I was going to take it back and replace it but after reading the other posts here, it turns out a lot of the units that are purchased have faulty continuity test. Now, I'm just gonna get my money back. I see some people paid as little as 10 dollars for this thing, here in California it was a whopping 25 dollars but I purchased it as it was on sale for 20. But anyways, taking it back tomorrow.
This is a great meter for the money. The battery test feature is a great little bonus that high end meters don't even have. The meter works with most test leads we've tried and the only drawback I can find is it's not an auto ranging meter.
We use these in our classroom and lab area for training engineers. We've never had an issue with the 5 we had on hand so when we needed more meters we checked to see if these were still available. When we noticed they were on sale at almost 50% off I bought 5 more.

A digital multimeter that works great and also comes with a voltage detector to check current for voltage so you don't get shocked before working on hot wires. It is also Craftsman so you get a great brand.
