There is not a lot between them Fluke were having problems at one time then Megger brought out the 1700 series and then had problems So what do I have well a Megger 1553 and a Fluke carry case .

It is what you are happy with plus modern electronics they either work or they dont and Megger/Fluke are big in the industry and people feel they have been trading on their names

that megger looks ok to me. i have the 1552 and paid £325 for it second hand, plus £40 calibration so £365 all in, if i'd have known i could get a brand new one for £460 i might have gone for that!

just noticed that it's £460 + VAT, so £552 total.

I have a fluke and it does the job great,better case than the megger,used the megger too,not much between the 2 apart from price,you can try fleabay but wouldnt see much change of £300 secondhand so £474 inc vat for a new unit its a good price and warranty/no need to calibrate.
