About selecting a multimeter

Jayasanka:
Hi I'm Jayasanka from Sri Lanka. Actually I saw the David L. Jones video about how to chose a correct multimeter but I got really confused. I really need to find a better multimeter.I went through some products on the internet. I can afford a price rang of below 75$. I know that with this price rang I won't find a perfect Digital Multimeter but I rather  find a better one. I put the links to the products that I found on the internet. So any one can give there opinion about them. Then I can go through your comments and solve my problem. 
 
 these are the links.

Those are the option that I have in mind. Actually I'm quite  amazed by the product shown by the first like. So I hope you guys would help me to find a better multimeter.

thanks,
Jayasanka.

Personally, for sub-$100 multimeters, I'd look at the Amprobe products.  Very good quality (owned by Fluke), and there are several models available that meet your price range.  You just have to decide what features you need (auto-ranging or not, diode test or not, capacitance test or not, Frequency measurement or not, etc.).  No one but you can decide these features for you.

Here's a nice one for $75

Out of those, the IDEAL one is probably the best brand.

I second the Amprobe suggestion.

Hi Jayasanka I do have one question for you,
I do understand that you are on low budget,
but are you willing to pay the shipping cost, by buying internationally ?

What are the products that you can find locally ?
 

Jayasanka:
Hi,
 I saw your reply, Actually my aunt is coming to Sri Lanka so I hope that she can bring it. In this way I don't have to pay for shipping even if they charge for tax it'll be less cause she can claim it as a present when bringing it to Sri Lanka.

In our country we have trouble finding electronic equipment + components. Actually we cannot find a servo here. We are having a hard time here.
Cause the taxes are really high the students have to buy cheep local multimeters. The down side is when we buy cheep multimeters we don't get the features that the good multimeters have.

That's why I really wanted to find a better one. This is my only way to buy a good one. so please help me with this problem. I posted some links too. Actually I was amazed by this multimeter http://www.amazon.com/Manual-Ranging-Digital-Multimeter-Interface/dp/B000LQONYM/ref=pd_sbs_auto_29   can you tell me Is this good for university studies and I really appreciate if you can look the other links too. If you have a better idea of a better multimeter apart from my list please post the link.

Thanks.
Jayasanka
