I just bought and assembled a Blue ESR meter from Anatek.
It will test caps in circuit or out. easy to use and has other uses that I don't understand yet. Kit was under 90 bucks and you can buy it assembled for about $30 more. Easy to use.

I have the Peak Atlas ESR+ ($141 shipped) and have been very pleased with it. I did change the leads out to lengthen them a bit.

To hi-jack the thread a bit, Peak's DCA-55 is also a remarkable device, amazing for $70...
