Default Digital Multimeter Extech?

I am intending to buy a DMM for my DIY work. I have already got a Sanwa 360TRD analog meter. In the local market I can only find a Sanwa which is very expensive or a YU FONG meter you all never might have heard. The DMM should be below 100$ and should have capacitance and preferably Temp capability.
In eBay there are dealers who sell Extech. The site lists following models which attracted my attention.

I can buy the following YU FONG meters in Sri Lanka for a lesser price.

Any recommendations? Is this Extech brand good?

I've been using an Extech True RMS digital multimeter for at least a couple years now, and it still works just fine. It can measure AC/DC voltage and current, resistance, capacitance, temperature, frequency, and duty cycle.

You can check it out here: http://www.extech.com/instrument/pro...99/22-816.html

It's certainly not the best one they make, but it should be less than $100.

Any of those other Extech multimeters you listed are probably very similar internally to the one I have, so I would say they should work just fine.
