That model is still on ebay, new about the same price as you say, so a new one might be better than one that could have been abused.
The newer model the 770 is about 80 ukp which is less, so that might be a better option, but be aware of fakes.
Unless you want reasonable quality or good accuracy you can get a similar function meter for a lot less, which might be a better buy if you think you'll loose it or blow it up, I have a decent meter and a couple of cheapo's for that reason.
Oh yes I dont consider myself an 'expert', just well seasoned.

I like the '772 but only because its sealed up and can withstand dirty environments, and it has a k type thermocouple interface, both are common where I work.
