What brand of test equipment have people found to be best for beginners?

Are some brands easier to use than others, should some be avoided all together?

Cheers!

The metrel mi3000 is a very easy to use meter, and the D lock works really well, they are also very reasonably priced, some people might not like them, but British Gas used them for the last 10 years so can't be all bad

It would help if you say what type of work you expect to be undertaking.

Will start with some smaller jobs, additions to existing installs etc with a view to moving onto domestic and commercial work. Single and 3 phase.

We tend to use Meggar multifunction metres (mft1730) at work.

I've found them to be easy to use.
