Fluke is a good meter. I have a model 23 that is 16 years old. I used it
every day for many years, now it is a back up meter as I wanted one with
more functions. I have tried other brands and I keep going back to Fluke. I
had a couple different UEI meters but they don't hold up for me. The only
problem I ever have with Fluke meters is when I drop test them from 20 feet
up onto concrete! Damn I hate it when that happens!
I've been using the same Fluke at work for 15 years, and never had a
problem. (I wore out one set of leads, and had to replace them.) Very
durable meter. You can pick one of their less expensive models and probably
never have to buy another one. Then again, you can buy a box load of cheap
meters for the same price, but will they work when you really need them?
I've used Fluke meters at work and they are good. If you want one with more
of the automotive capabilities you may be interested in the Sunpro CP7680.
I've had one for about 15 years and it's still going strong. I got it at
Sears and I think it cost about $100 back then.
Here is a scan of the box listing the capabilities:
Well Larry, it must not be a fluke, huh??
I've never heard of that brand, not being in the business, but from what I'm
hearing now, it's pretty damn inexpensive if you figure how many cheaper meters
it will outlast over the years..
If you need a GOOD digital multimeter I think you need to be looking at
FLUKE. Here's a very good but fairly basic model at this link:
