Multimeter suggestion
« on: November 29, 2014, 09:37:31 AM »
My previous very cheap meter is on it's last leg.  I'm looking for a new meter with some descent quality.  I'm looking for something that suites are hobby.  Ohms and voltages are the main thing but I want something good.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.  Auto ranging is something that I want for sure.   Much nice than what I have now.

Amazon has 20% off now on select models.  $38.80 I think this will work well for what I do.  Thanks

Ordered an Extech EX330 from Amazon.  I tried to like it but couldn't get it to work most of the time or it was really slow.  I finally warmed up to the 4x price of a pre-owned Fluke 87v and what a dream it has been to use so far.
