EDIT - nevermind, I think this is a scam site.  I thought it might be too good to be true...  They also have Flukes for pennies on the dollar.  Proceed at your own risk.  But it's nice to dream  :P

Was Googling around on Brymen meters and discovered this offer from TopCon: https://www.testingtoolsshop.com/wattmaster-rms-digital-multimeter-watel-bm829/

No experience with this company, but they have a US address.

Seems like a good deal!

My Greenlee DM820A (aka Brymen BM827S) has proved exceptionally reliable over the years.  Just ordered Dave's BM235 for a second meter because I've recently discovered the usefulness of the low impedance feature when working on mains wiring.  This should hold me for a while  ;D  Kinda wish I had found this before I ordered the BM235, but it's already on it's way and at least I'm supporting Dave a little bit ;-)

SO THE NAME SAYS IS ALL?
TOP   CON?

odd they give a street address:
4668 Cerullo Road
Louisville KY, United States (US)
40299

Anyone in Louisville want to do a door knock and see if they sell in person?  I still agree with everyone else, likely a scam.

Hmmm, Google maps says there is no Cerullo Road...
WOW! all too good cannot find a Cerullo Road anywhere in the USA! LOL

I love the list price on this $595 USD.  On sale for 98.99 USD  :-DD when you can probably get this meter for $10 USD off ebay.  I can see the beginner already blowing the fuse with the Volt/Ohm/mA all in one jack.
