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?

Fluke or nothing.

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

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.
