    Martindale ET4000 MFT any good?

    Anyone got a Martindale ET4000? I was thinking of getting one but looks like it only does 3 wire loop testing although it has some useful features. If anyone has one I'd be interested to know how good or bad it is. Thanks.

    Martindale ET4500

    Hi Guys I am just about to buy a MFT and I have run across the Martindale ET4500. It is about £350 cheaper than the comparable Megger or Fluke. I was wondering if anyone has an opinion as to whether it is worth getting the more expensive or if the Martindale does the job. Thanks
