This thread is the long awaited DMM discussion thread. This is where you ask any questions, talk about your preferences. Maybe mini reviews that you don't think is worthy of a thread(don't be shy about posting your own thread!). Let's try to avoid clamp meter talk here.

I've been working with the Southwire 16040T it's a compact meter that utilizes their phone app, it's pretty cool actually, comes with a worklight on it too. The write up is on my website if anyone is interested in it, really it's a lot of meter for 60 bucks. True RMS as well

I like trying out the others too. It's more of a hobby, I play around with them but always go back to fluke. The quality, the feel and the accuracy make It hard to use anything else!

I had a Fluke 87 for years, as they were (are?) the standard for General Motors technicians.  It and a Fluke clampmeter were stolen, though, so I'm now stuck with a couple of cheap Craftsman meters and a handy but basic Klein.  Come to think of it, I do have a Fluke 110 (I think) that a coworker gave me.

The Fluke 87 and 87III and 87V are the industry standard for pretty much everyone. They also make the Fluke 88 which is an automotive DMM.

 

The Kleins aren't bad, I like their clamp meter...I think it's made by Uni-T.
