Testers will always come down to personal choice and what you are comfortable in using. If your in the market for a new one and want some sound unbiased advise (even though he sells them) then speak to one of our outstanding forum sponsors Megger Mark, affectionately known as MM.

As Manator says its personal choice I personally like flukes and would probably get another one.

Hi,

Having done much research into which tester to buy, I contacted megger mark and he was extremely helpful and patient. I thought I had a reasonable idea of which model to buy, however, Mark has a working knowledge of the reliability, servicing and calibration side of things for each make, which I had no idea about.

Mark has outstanding knowledge and is super-helpful !

I also like the fluke.

Whichever you decide on megger mark and megger mike will do you a great deal.

actually, if you have done a short course the best tool/tester you could get is a NEON screwdriver and remove the resistor, its makes it more accurate.!

but only do this if you actually are an electrician, DIYers should NEVER perform this, it could prove dangerous if you dont fully understand what you are doing!
