Hello dear friends
As i know Fluke has the best multimeters but i do not need the best one
which model which brand you are offering?
Why would you not want the best???
Well Fluke is pretty expensive and my company thinks it is pretty expensive maybe i will add some extra money to buy a Fluke
by the way it is good to learn the other good companies.
thanks for the fast answer
I was at a Facilities Trade show and the Fluke rep told me that Meterman meters are made by Fluke and they are less money. Amprobe meters look identical (they are red) personally i like Fieldpiece or Ideal. Tpi meters are reasonably priced also. I bought my last meter at Loews. It was an Ideal clampmeter catIII 600volts 40million ohm scale 68.00
In the lab I have a Fluke 87-V multimeter and a Fluke 337 clamp meter.
For the less precise stuff, or to let others borrow, we use something from RadioShack / HomeDepot, etc.
I have a Fluke and a Fieldpiece, and while both are good, the fieldpiece sc-66(what I have, now a sc-77) is great bang for the buck. Measures everything you need except its not a true RMS, and if broken, $45 gets you a re-conditioned one.
If everything was always done "by the book"....the book would never change.
I'm with Cracker on this.

I have tried Simpson, UEI, Amprobe, Greenlee, Fluke, GB, and probably a few other brands that are even less memorable.
I use Fluke 99.99% of the time. (Simpson for the rest)
Is Fluke the best value/price ratio or are they getting by on their reputation?
I have a friend that races dirt track, he was at a drivers meeting at the start of one season and somebody asked "how much should you spend on a helmet" The official said " if you have a five dollar head then buy a five dollar helmet" The same goes for equipment that you are betting you life on . That why I always use Fluke cat. IV meters. JMO

That's a pretty good point, but other manu's are also aware of product liability risks.

Here's a site that has already done the survey work for you, depending on what meter you're looking at.
Here's two more that also have surveys for various products and allow you to compare one product against the other, for breaking ties.
They even have surveys about the answers people gave.
I would give more credibility, though, to people on this forum.
Not to be an a$$, but if this is true, why ask the first question that you asked?

The OP decides on the best deal for his/her particular case, but with input from the Internet and other HVACers?
Or, it just is an odd question. . .
