Inductance is a rare feature on a DMM. I’d mainly care about testing in-circuit components with your meter(wide range of voltages and currents, truerms, high voltage safety, ncv sensing, etc.), inductance and capacitance and transistors and such are better suited to an LCR meter or measurement with a scope. If you google “multimeter spreadsheet eevblog” you’ll find a forum post with a rather comprehensive and somewhat recent list of a bunch of mid-upper brands and their different models.
Other notable features include data-logging, min/max/average, smartphone connectivity, connectable amp-clamp, maybe even rechargeable battery. But you should see all that on the spreadsheet’s many columns.
And personally I like autoranging, but some swear against it.
A chinky transistor tester from AliExpress (does LCR, BJT, FET, etc.) is a cheap and surprisingly good tool to have around. Get one with a case, because without one they’re a bit too delicate. Might want to bodge it to use banana sockets too. For accurately measuring inductance and capacitance, it’s best to use a 4-wire tester of some kind, usually a benchtop model. If you don’t need that accuracy, go with the chinkyLCR.
Oh and get a cheap alibay logic analyser while you’re at it, they’re really handy. Can’t say I can say the same thing for chinky scopes though, especially the single-channel fuckos.
