Velleman LAB1U 3-in-1 Lab Unit
Velleman LAB1U 3-in-1 Lab Unit is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine for this Hobbyist / ExperimenterI've owned the Lab-1 for a bit over two years, and I'm happy to have it on my workbench. I originally bought it to reduce the amount of clutter on my bench from various pieces of equipment, and it helped. Mine works well and does what it's supposed to do. The soldering iron has worked very well for me. The power cord is the same thickness as a round 120V power cable (e.g. computer pigtail), I have not had a lot of trouble with mine. And the controls and switches work reasonably well. It's consumer grade equipment, nothing more. I do have to wait for the DVM display to settle down for a couple of seconds before taking a reading, but I've seen this with other DVMs as well.Having said this, there are some significant shortcomings. Although it comes with a 120VAC power cord, the DVM is not powered from the AC mains. It has a 9-volt battery that sits in a drawer in the back of the unit. This is very disappointing, as I frequently think that I've switched it off using the main power switch when I leave. You have to turn the DVM range selector to its off position or the battery will be dead the next time you arrive. That's just silly, because the unit has its own DC power supply. How hard would it have been to power the DVM?The other problem I have is that the first one that I received from P.E. was not packaged very well. It looked like it had been dropped from a great height and was destroyed. The DVM's digital display had been knocked out of place. In P.E.'s defense, I will say that they wasted no time shipping me a replacement. They sent it as soon as I notified them.I'm still quite happy to see this unit on my workbench. It has been handy for many small repairs and experiments, and makes my work area easier to keep clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't win me overMany of the Velleman products are excellent but this one unfortunately isn't one of them. Just a few of many gripes include a dangerous and potentially hazardous control pot on the power supply--voltage and current all over the place with the slightest touch. The soldering station iron lead would be better suited as an automotive jumper cable, large, stiff, bulky and binds up like an air hose most of the time. Very poor temperature control. The switches and indicators are extremely poor quality -- This isn't anything close to a quality piece even for the occasional user or part-time hobbyist. I gave mine away after 3 months.
