It is a lot less expensive than the Fluke 88V, listing at 60 bucks and street-priced around 40, but, still quite a bit more expensive than that Chinese thing Jasik bought.

I stand corrected.
Steve did not by that "Chinese thing".
I'm sorry for suggesting that.

To be honest, when I went to that page, I saw the price and went straight to the specifications information looking for it's input impedance numbers. As Steve suggests, I missed the part about only being able to pre order.

Fluke 115...good stuff. Input impedance for DC voltage measurements is greater than 10-Megohm.
Jasik has redeemed himself.
...and those interested in good DMMs, should follow his lead and buy a Fluke 115.

I looked at that page but did not see any information as to the unit's input impedance. Regardless of the MT826's higher price and additional features, if the intended use is engine controls diagnostic work on any of the ZR-1s computer-controlled or computer-related circuits, make sure the unit's impedance is 10-megohm or more before you buy.
