Fluke hands down! Small job or big job it doesn't matter - you still want a meter that gives you reliable service for years. I bought my Fluke model 117 Electricians Multimeter off of ebay for $120.00USD and it was worth every penny.

Once you own a meter that is more than basic, you'll find yourself using it more than what you thought you would.

Being an electrician by trade, my life rest in my meter! And potentially tens of thousands of dollars rest on its accuracy. That's why nothing but a FLUKE will do!

Now if you are talking just for use on or bike or around your house, just about anything will do. Ideal, GB, Fluke, Greelee, etc...

Agreed with what other says. Best digital multimeter is Fluke, but I can't afford it. I went with an analog multimeter instead. More accurate than digital for a cheaper price (to some extent), of course you don't get all the other functions like measuring amperes, connectivity, diodes, and so forth. I think I got it for less than $30. Burned 2 digital multimeter already by accident.

thanks for the responses.
I will be going with fluke because of its accuracy,
and it has several different functions.
better to buy once than twice
