Sorry I'd meant to include that in the original post - nothing 
particularly special, the - fairly similar spec'ed, I believe - previous 
model of this device:


Fairly cheap and cheerful, but I checked it with a good-quality 
calibrated volt meter, and current clamp (on a resistive load) when I 
got it a couple of years ago, and although I can't remember the exact 
results, the accuracy seemed pretty good at the time.  The model I have 
gives Hz, Volts, Amps, VA, Watts and Power Factor (not sure what method 
of PF calculation).
