    Very pleased with this item. Have measured caps in excess of the rated 500uf top end. 820Uf and still accurate. Will be ordering another one as a back up in the near future. Workomg on finding a suitably shielded enclosure for it to eliminate stray capacitances.

    Very useful addition to my test equipment.
    This kit is of good quality and went together easily and it worked straight away. I installed it in a nice grey plastic box using a 9 volt battery with a separate on/off switch on the front. I arranged to extend the zeroing button through the case using a nylon screw. I put a couple of banana sockets on the front, spaced so that I can use a banana to BNC adaptor for checking cable capacity or attach some clip leads. Great little unit and electrically very stable.

    Excellent value
    This kit was easy to assemble and works well. I consider it an excellent value and a worthwhile addition to anyone's toolkit. Placing it in a small polyethylene snap-top box with two short clipleads makes it a handy pocket capacitance tester for checking components at hamfests/swap meets as well.

    Very nice kit, easy to assemble, very accurate, affordable, and easy to use. Took about an hour to put together, and it worked perfectly when powered up. On the negative side, the resistors are difficult to read due to their small size and brittle paint, so they were measured as they were installed. As shipped, the 7 SEG display is difficult to view in bright light so I added a red lens salvaged from an old VCR. That solved the problem.

    Nice little kit at great little price. Put on my magnifiers and put soldered it up without any problems. I did add a set of alligator leads and use a "wall wart" instead of a battery. Does just what it claims to do and shipping was quick.
