    Ebay is Megger expensive these days (Sorry, couldn't resist ;))

    I prefer to use Amazon to be honest, most items I search for turn up to be cheaper on there than ebay and the service tends to be far better too:thumbsup

    I have to say that i have been looking lately cos i hate my fluke 1651 now, and i have to say that as forum sponsors i have looked on test-meter and i reckon they are a good price, and thats before you get 5% off for being a forum member :yesnod:
