    I recently bought the Testo 570 and love it. It was my introduction into the real digital guages. I hear the S-man is also good. My Testo's willl display real time SH SC Delta-t. All that good stuff. The only thing I don't like about is that it won't calculate your targets like the S-man's will.

    For refrigeration I like the Digi-Cools
    If I could only have one unit it would be Digi-Cool no question.
    Tough Unit no special treatment necessary.
    The AK-900 has everything on one screen.
    All button pushing to toggle screens to see the different measurements on all the other guys units is very annoying to me

    Another vote for the D.C. AK900. It's the only digital I have used but so far it's been great. I would definitely get the new clamp probes with it as well as a set of wrap-arounds. I just have the two kinds of velcro wrap-around type and while they work well, they are a bit of a pain sometimes. I'm getting a set of clamps ASAP.
    Where are you? Are you done yet? I got ONE more call for you.....

    Check out my reviews of the Fieldpiece SMAN4, Digicool AK900, and Testo 550's in the "Tools and Test Equipment" section.
