Just wondering which multifunctional testers you guys have, and how long have they lasted?

Cheeky plug: Multifunction Testers and Part P Test Equipment - https://www.test-meter.co.uk/multifunction-testers/

Hoping this becomes a handy thread for you all. There seems to be a massive price difference between them all. But then I guess some do things others don't? Not sure. :)

Let us know which multifunctional testers you have, which ones you wish you had, and how long the one you have has lasted so far. :D

I have a Megger MFT 1741-BS. Had a Megger MFT 1553 before that. (Still have it as a backup.) New one is much faster and also has rechargeable batteries. Great instrument, although some would still swear by the 1500 series over the 1700 series.

Metrel MI3000, lasted about 7 years from new but now has an intermittent fault on the navigation button, probably on the PCB.
Replaced with another preloved MI3000 whilst deciding on the next one.

1553. manufactured 2008. bought 2nd hand from a forum member 6 years ago. never missed a beat. still looks like new.
 
Fluke 1654 and a Metrel Easitest MI 2087, both bought used. The Fluke is a lot slicker but then it's newer and was more expensive. The Metrel is over 10 years old and still going strong.
 
Are we the only country to use MF testers ?

I have spoken to sparks from America , Canada , New Zealand , Australia , Greece and Spain non of which use a MF back home
 
Trusty old Dilog 9083P. Bought used from another spark who was upgrading. Very easy to use which makes it ideal for me. Worked well for 3 years and sails through its annual calibration.
