A venerable digital multimeter from my Beech
"GoBox" finally went belly up after 10-12 years.
Ordered this item for replacement:

https://goo.gl/TSJsij

This turns out to be an amazing value for accuracy
and utility. Its an auto-ranging multimeter that
measures ac/dc volts rms, millivolts rms, ohms, frequency
to 10Khz, ac/dc amps and microamps and is even an
signal generator. I've not checked the accuracy
extensively . . . but the parameters I did look at
tracked nicely with readings from the bench Fluke and
Tektronix instruments.

Better yet, it's about 1/4th the volume and weight of
the instrument it's replacing . . .t he toolbox was
getting tight.

The banana jacke are actually on 0.75" centers!
Will report new discoveries when and if they arise . . .

Indeed, these are nice little units and I agree, they're an amazing value. I bought the AN8009 recently, which is identical to your AN8008 except that it replaces the signal generator feature with temperature measurement and comes with a Type-K thermocouple. Mine appears to be quite accurate and is easy to use. My only complaint is a minor one: the LCD display could be a bit better on-axis; it's easiest to read if the meter lays flat on the bench and is viewed at a low angle from below the meter. Otherwise, at <$20, they're an easy win.
