What meter you use is always dependent on the application you use it in, and not the price. A candy maker will tell you a meter off by 2 degrees C, or one that is not consistent, is worthless at any price but that same meter will suffice for proofing bread.
I have a $500 dollar Fluke 83V electrical meter that is unbelievably accurate, and when you need that it is nice to have. 99 percent of the time I will use my $150 Fluke 116, since most readings never need that level of accuracy. The 116 is a one handed meter, and the 83 is literately a brick in size and weight. Right tool for the right job.
It is always worth paying for ruggedness and longevity though,
