I am looking to buy a new digital amp meter and just wanted to get some info on your favorites. I have been using an analog amprobe for years never had any problems with it but just wanted to upgrade. Fluke, amprobe, greenlee, extech?

Nov, I'm like BobH & Trumpy. Fluke is what I use. Had other brands in my younger days, but all I have now is Fluke Products. Their repair service is very good and fast.

Yet another Fluke user here.

I already had a good Fluke DMM (model 87), so I just added a clamp-on current probe to it (model 80I-400).

I just bought an Ideal because of the display on the bottom so far it seems to work ok and it is easy to read the display. Rod

I have a Fluke Model 337 and have been very happy with it.

ok looks like fluke I have an older model 23 DDM that I have had no problems with. Now to choose between true rms or not. I am looking at the model 322 or model 335 (true rms and backlit)

I own an Amprobe, Fluke, and Ideal and all are good meters IMO.

If I needed to buy one right now I'd look into an Ideal with the bottom read out like Rod has.

I use my Fluke products most of the time. I will never do away with my analog amprobe multimeter ! Digital is good but keep in mind they are very sensitive to stray currents and will give readings on "ghost" currents. Thats when I double check with the old trusty dusty analog amprobe.
