Great value multimeter  Time owned: more than 12 months
I picked up one of these multimeters on sale for $9.99 from Sears. It's probably the best $10 I've spent on the hobby so far.

The 82141 has a large display and heavy duty right-angle leads. The flip-up stand makes seeing the meter much easier when taking measurements with both hands. The multimeter takes a single 9V battery which tends to last me around a year with moderate use (I save the old 9-volt batteries removed from my smoke detectors so I have a 10 year supply of batteries handy for the meter :-). The readings appear accurate with other DMMs I've used. The jacks for the leads are standard banana plugs so adaptor cables or accessories from other manufacturers (Fluke) can be used with the meter.

The only trouble I've had is blowing a fuse in the back (I had the unit on the wrong setting... spare fuses are included with the multimeter or can be bought at Sears).

Nitpicks? It'd be nice if the DC amperage reading would go higher than 10A (the unit does 10A or 200mA, selectable). The unit is also not auto ranging.
