Hi feeshywow. There are several articles and reviews of meters on the main site her – I expect you will have found a few of them by now.
In general it seems that combination meters are probably less accurate than single meters, or they are particularly good in one area but not in others (see Trifield meter information on the main site for one example).
10Ghz is a higher upper frequency than the Acoustimeter, but sometimes there is a trade-off between range and sensitivity/accuracy. Also depends on where the low end of the range is – eg if it’s 2GHz you will lose mobile phone and some cordless phone coverage.
Personally I use an Acoustimeter for RF, a Gigahertz meter for power frequency magnetic and electric fields (a combination which seems to work well) and Stetzer meter for dirty electricity. I find these are adequate for most purposes, eg before/after comparison for shielding, filtering,earthing etc. They may not be perfectly accurate but they are usually good enough to tell if there is a problem or not.
