I just find them completely unnecessary for the type of work I do, there is not one thing you can do with a digi manifold that I can not do with analog gages and a thermometer, I like to see the gage flutter on multiple cylinder open drives and like to be able to hook a single gauge on a liquid line when it is 30' from the nearest suction line... Make a wireless transducer and I would be on that stuff like polyester on a used car salesman...
If your gonna quote somebody, I recommend you check your digital manifold set and get all the facts in order..........

A 3-2-3 gauge set is not as accurate as a 1% gauge set, and a 1% gauge set is not as accurate as a digital gauge set. The way I convinced myself to purchase my digital manifold was by comparing accuracy, efficiency, reliability, and validity. Those are the very same qualifications that any engineer will live and die on when testing ANYTHING. Digital gauges are more accurate, MUCH more efficient, more reliable over the long haul, and are capable of making valid measurements on any and all refrigerant types.
The only reason a person would be AGAINST digital gauges is that they are either intimidated by them or simply have not seen the benefits of using them. That said, my old man won't ever use them. He sees their usefulness on a near daily basis, but he's too old fashion to let go of his antiquated tools of yesteryear.
Funny enough, he was also pretty reluctant to get his first cell phone. Hmm, funny how new, functional technology seems to always eradicate old, functional technology. After all, Henry Ford's Model-T probably wasn't popular to everybody. Now days, you'd have to take a trip to Lancaster Co., PA to see pre-automobile living!!

Both of the cheapie handles stripped out, the dumb clip on thermocouples broke from bumping around under the soft case. Bought a hard case for $40 bucks and now have an internal leak on the suction gauge, you can hear it hiss under 300 lbs of nitrogen. This leak caused me to just about loose my mind working on a Stoelting ice cream machine. Where's the "F" in leak already!? Oh, on my $400 gauge set.
My brother's set which he put off buying until a year after mine, smart since the Testo cluster (blank) incident. His set is also no in for repair as they register 220 psi on both gauges no matter what the refrigerant. oh, his handle also broke.
I used $10 J+B replacements which work perfectly, my brother is a bit old school this is what he used. The high side hose is off because he was installing a mini split.You don't get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to the hour. Jim Rohn
