Nice looking meter, price is right too. Dang it man, sorry to hear the news about your gallbladder, God willing, hopefully your surgery will go fine and all will be well. Nice treat you bought yourself there!! Are the readings easy to see? Just curious. May have to get one for myself, thank for the link as well. Anyway, hope all goes well for you duster and that you will be okay. God bless.

I have it sitting about 4' away a little above my head. I can see the display fairly well.

I'm not looking forward to surgery at all, but it's hurting like hell.

When I first glanced at that sentence, I thought, "that's a heck of a place for his gall bladder to be." Coffee hadn't kicked in; got my "its" confused :whistle:

Looks pretty cool. You're gonna be watt metered out, pretty soon! Good luck with the surgery. I had a friend that had it done, and the incision was minimal. Not like the old days! Be careful with your stitches afterwards and don't over-do it. And be sure to take your Tylenol 3 with whiskey. :D

My results might not be typical with this meter.

I had reservations about this meter before I bought it. However, I am noticing closely similar readings in regards to AVG and PEP against my other meters.

I'm more than satisfied with it so far.

After burning this thing in for a few more days, I am very happy with it. Seems more than accurate. The different display parameters and alarm functions are very convenient. The built in frequency counter is very handy as well. I cannot find any other vendor with a sale price like Universal. The firmware is user upgradeable, however, mine has the most recent version.

Can't beat the accuracy, features and the price for what u get. HRO will match this price as well. I think Universal only had 1 left in stock, but HRO has a few.

    ...ebay. I will also file a case/complaint with my local sheriff's dept tomorrow. I'm good friends with the sheriff so I hope you'll be able to help me in this process. This guy has been a criminal (at least on eBay) for over11 years. I see the first post on here regarding his criminal behavior was in 2011. Has anybody else filed a complaint against this low-life scam artist? Any suggestions/help on getting my $$$ back would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
