AM220 would be my choice and is, I own one and am quite happy with it

the UNI-T  UT61D $43.19 from ebay is worthy ?

these ebay uni-t models are real or fakes?

I've a Sanwa CD770 and here are my comments on it..

I like this Japan built quality DMM but there are a few things missing ( the higher model have it at a much higher price ) :-
- Current measurement, only 400mA, no 10A
- no backlight

Overall, I am satisfied with this model, pretty fast readings and good accuracy ...

I haven't seen fake Uni-T meters. Fraudsters, when going through the trouble to fake a meter, like to target the high-end brands, because the margins for the fraudsters are higher. Uni-T is low-end stuff. It is not the bottom of the barrel, but it is nothing to write home about. They aren't high-end meters in stealth mode. You get your $43.19 worth, but not more.
