Torn between the Fluke 368 (pricey) and the Megger DCM305E. Anyone have any preference/horror stories? Default is "Yellow" but the price is scary...

DCM300 is a beauty and has been coveted a while but I found a second hand Hyoki which works well when it is needed. Telectrix I think has a DCM and always promotes it but yes the prices are hard to bear. It's an investment and the job that you need it for will make it priceless ( nearly)

My Fluke360 never misses a beat. Got it for a good price at the time, but bloody pricey now though. I would opt for the Megger given the prices as they are now.
The Dilog, is or was, available in many incarnations and brands. If it looks like the Dilog, whatever the brand, I would avoid it.

I seen this thread as my old one has let me down and was about to buy a dilog as my local wholesaler is claiming there as good as fluke, just read this and think I'll have a change of plans
They are probably claiming that because they get a bigger financial impetus to do so.
