I am going to get a Wavetek meter this week and am trying to figure out which one would be the best model for me. Heres the link for anyone interested: http://www.metermantesttools.com/products/dmms.asp the 3 models I'm looking at are: 16XL little bit cheaper than other two 25XT has full range capacitance 27XT has inductance, smaller capacitance range I am mainly leaning towards the XT series. The main thing I'm wondering is how often does the need to measure inductance arise, and would it be better to have the full range capacitance of the 25xt? My main focus is electronics and troubleshooting. Thanks for any info or knowledge you can give me.
