    get the ratshack one.. its the most widely used and you will be able to get a lot of help with charts, weightage and measurements.

    MCM ELectronics sells some Tenma models that are a little cheaper, but by the time you shell out for shipping you really won’t be any further ahead. And as Feisal noted, it's not widely known how accurate they are, nor are there any compensation charts.

    You might try finding a used Rat Shack meter on eBay.

    Please note the red-lettered message at the top of the main thread-listing page in the Basics area: It's a section intended solely for the purpose of defining home-theater essentials for newcomers. For basic questions to be asked. Specifically, if you are seeking advice on which models to purchase, post in the appropriate hardware-related section.

    Hence, this thread now is in the Accessories area.

    Thank you.
