Fluke is very reliable and easy to use, what more do you desire in a meter?

Wars have been started based on tool brand arguments. Very rarely will you find people agreeing about what manufacturer best. Except for multi meters, pretty much everyone agrees that fluke is a great brand.

Go buy one of each brand and drop them off a 10' ladder, you will learn a good reason to get one. On top of that I find their leads are better quality and last longer.

for home/hobby use there are plenty good meters,

but if you gonna buy one for work just get a Fluke.

Extech is a subcompany of Flir so it's not that bad but Fluke is better.

And NONE of them can neatly wrap and store the leads in the little lead clips on the bump cover.

I have also worked with them a while ago, and they were easy to use and would never break down quickly.

What do you guys recommend?
The Fluke 87 is a fine all around meter for many uses. It has been in production for many years, so other folks must think so also. An 87 could be more than you would need if you only do building wiring, but for service, maintenance, start tup or verification of calibration, it is the tool to have.

@varmit Thank you I have looked at the Fluke 87 and I think it is going to be that one indeed. I only read positive reviews about that meter. Thank you!
