I prefer the analog MM's because the low cost digital ones seem to "hunt" all the time. Therefore, if the meter does not settle on a certain reading, you don't really know what the reading is. Since most guys don't need an expensive MM for their shop, they are more likely to choose a cheap digital model over the analog one just because we are living in the digital age.
i prefer to recommend tools that I know will work for people for the task at hand. YMMV
