    Fluke is good but I got a Snap-On used (like new) one on EBay for 2/3 less money. It is made by Fluke.

    But for the record, I also have a fluke and have used one since the late 80s.

    That's old school. I remember my Dad having one of those in the 70's. It was the meter I first learned to use as a kid.

    I replaced my Simpson 260 with a Fluke 77 too many years ago to remember. But more often than not, my needs are met with this:

    Sometimes digital is too ​accurate where an analogue needle with a mirror gives a more useful reading.

    I'm a fluke guy as well. Meter works great but the availability of accessories is amazing as well
