    Analog meters will allow me to instantly identify:

    1) a capacitor that is charging when I check for resistance

    2) pulses on the line when I check DC

    For these two applications, I have found digital meters to be inferior.

    hi,

    based on my experience i believe neither of them has any considerable superiority. each has its own strenght and weaknesses. its just a question of when to use any of them. if you're into hobby electronics any of them will do.
