    i've been using the Robin 16th Edition Test Kit for years and had no problems at all, and i know people who have gone for the all in one option and been plagued with problems. I know there more expensive but go with reliability :)

    I'd recommend you just look a little harder to find who has hidden your fluke gear before you buy more :LOL:

    Hi,
    I've had an easitest for over a year. It works well, is well made and I've had no problems. Whether it's value for money I don't know as I paid #580 from City Electrical, but when your life depends on something it isn't worth worrying about a few bob...
    Instructions are just poor translations. Adequate, but not simple to follow.
    Would I buy another? Yes, but I might shop around a bit more.

    We have had a couple of these at work for a few years without any problems.
    They do everything you need and a pretty tough too.

    I still prefer fluke tho ;)

    I use Alphatek 61557 at work. An OK unit that does all you need.
