  1. T.Beyer (verified owner)

    Bought here a while ago. A quite useful tool but also with some pitfalls. RIOT test does not work correctly with almost 90% of the ICs, therefore unusable. PIA and RAM tests OK with low error rate. The marking for the positioning of the ICs is missing on the test socket, so you have to look at the very short manual every time after a long time. Unfortunately, the test socket is not exactly of the highest quality, which can actually be expected for the price. From my point of view, unfortunately, it was a bad buy.

    Very useful tester. it works with all common RAMs and is very fast and compact.
    PIA testing is also very good.
    Good price compared to other similar products.
