Happy New Year to everyone!

I'm considering buying a new digital multimeter. Well, the descision has been made, I'm just a little unsure as to which one to go for.

At work, I use a Fluke. I'm not entirely sure which one, but they're provided for us and calibrated each year.

I'd like something similar but have no experience in using anything other than the €15 cheap plastic thing I have at home and my work device.

Uses include home electrics, vehicle electrics, guitar amplifier electronics (valves), amongst other minor uses. I'm looking at the following devices so far; Fluke 179 & Gossen Metrahit Tech.

Any other models I should be looking at? Personal experiences of these devices?

Hi rock
Try search on Fluke 117. Good bang for your buck.

You will find a digital meter useless for auto work: a;part frm computers the electrics are low-impedance high-current affairs and a digital will usually leave you scratching your head.
