Re: lcr meter

I will verify the accuracy of the Peak units.  I outfit my service guys with their ESR meters.  They are made in the UK and have great quality control.

For bench work I prefer the DER meter because it comes with multiple kelvin type probes including smd tweezers, also measures ESR, and will check inductance at a wider frequency range.

If you dont use it much or use it in the field, the Peak unit is preferable for its small size and durability, though more limited in features.  

If you are mostly measuring capacitance, i would seriously suggest getting a quality VOM such as a Fluke 87IV.  They are available at pawn shops for under $200 and will greatly improve the quality of your life.

You can buy it from Amazon, for about $110.
