Cool tools asked “What’s the best affordable volt-ohm meter”- here’s what we said... Most people on the internet will reflexively say “FLUKE!@” but really they’re overkill: Anyone who isn’t sure what multimeter to get doesn’t use them often enough to justify spending more than about $50
- Best supercheap: Mastech MAS-830 ($11) from http://www.elexp.com/tst_s830.htm and others
- Best midrange: Extech EX-330 ($55) from http://www.elexp.com/tst_x310.htm and others
- Best $$$: Fluke 77 ($200-$250) from lots of places – This replaces the venerable 73 series
