I do not know for sure but it looks like cheap transistor/component tester

This looks like way too expensive. If you look lcr-meter look DE-5000. If you look component tester there are many threads in this forum.

Velleman product page:
A steal at more than double CPC's price:
 |O  :-DD

Its certainly got basic LCR meter functionality, but is likely to be very limited compared to a modern digital LCR meter. It does do ESR, I don't know about ESL or Q.  Compare its specs with the DE-5000 just mentioned: 

OTOH if you *NEED* the semiconductor checking capabilities and you don't buy it from a rip-off Ebay scammer it may be worth it.

N.B. If you have a Velleman HPS140MK2  handheld scope, it may be worth considering the HPS141 component tester accessory:
which, (according to a Velleman staffer) shares the same base firmware and specs as the K8115.    Its about 30% cheaper, fully assembled and also available from CPC:
N.B. the HPS141  *ONLY* works with the HPS140MK2.

Well… If you need just an LCR-meter:  Chinese XJW01 cost $65 on Aliexpress (Assembled variant. DIY kit without case costs half as much).

P.S. Discussion on forum. DIY kit version review with photos of assembly and soldering order (in Russian).
