Review of:Durametric

Product Type: Handheld Unit 

Reviewed by: Alex Meyer

Quality of Build

Relatively solid design and works well.

Value For Money

Comes at a low cost while not compromising functionality.

Ease of Use

Very simple and intuitive in its operation.

What We Like

  • Inexpensive
  • Clears and reads simple error codes
  • Can identify the number of ignitions in some rev brands

What We Don’t Like

  • Doesn’t clear ‘check engine’ error codes
  • Doesn’t pick up fault of some systems even if error light is on
  • You’ll still need to visit dealer for other services

It’s no secret: For a number of products, the market is saturated with the original version as well as their replicas. While most people associate imitations with inferiority where both performance and durability are concerned, that’s not always the case.

You’ll be surprised how some of them function just as well or maybe even better than the original products. Also, you’re guaranteed to save a few dollars as they’re usually cheaper than the original version. A good example is the Durametric scanner we’re reviewing today.

This device is a low-cost alternative to buying the factory Porsche diagnostic tool. However, despite its lower price it offers all the functionalities present in an OBD scan tool. In fact some of its features exceed those present in the factory version—the ability to identify the number of ignitions in certain rev brands being one of them.

Still not convinced? The point of this review is to let you in on its many outstanding features and capabilities. You might just be impressed.

Durametric Review



Final thought: This tool is worth considering if you want a device that’ll help you understand and clear simple code errors. Granted, it might not pick up on a few error codes, but it sure beats driving to the dealership every time a warning light appears on your dashboard.

Overall it’s an effective device that works well—for the most part. It’s quite handy and will save you lots of time and money on unnecessary professional consultations. We think it’s definitely worth the buy.
