Default Knopp K-60 v.s. t+pro ideal ?

It's seems like a no brainer? Knopp $60 T+Pro $78

The t+pro seems to do what the knopp does and much more


Is this a no brainer or is there something I'm missing???

I'm on a buying spree today

No Brainer. T+ Pro all the way.

Go T+, and it is cheaper than Knopp, and better.

But, I'm also assuming you mean the FLUKE T+ pro, and not Ideal like your title. If you mean the Ideal Volt-Con Elite for $78, stay away from that POS.

I briefly looked at the Knopp and the Voltcon Elite before getting a T+ Pro last month, and am very satisfied. Add one more to the tally in the Fluke column

Go with the T+Pro. I upgraded from an Ideal Vol-Con over a year ago, the T+Pro has the GFCI test function, a LED light, and a Data Hold. The best part about it is the vibrating function. When I was on a few industrial jobs we had to wear hearing protection, so the vibration was an added safety feature.

One tester is greater than the t+pro and that is the greenlee dvc-10 but it is no lancer in production. T+ pro is the best voltmeter on the market for everyday use

Can't find anything in the data sheet or manual for the DVC-10 about its impedance or how it would handle "ghost voltage". I don't think I'd like the fixed + probe sticking out that one to use a rubber protector on so one doesn't stab themselves!!!

The t+pro kicks azz!A couple of other features I really like that wasn't mentioned is,The nice led lit screen,rotation indication,and if the batteries are dead you can still read voltage.

For the money it can't be beat,best voltage meter on the market!
