You have asked this several times already in various threads. These are such specific questions that most people won't know the answers to - mainly because not many people will have tried these meters.

My suggestion would be to go to suppliers and speak to them - they should know all about them. Compare the specs etc.

Like gibertini, I wouldn't touch these meters simply because they are quite prone to failing with little support after the fact. I know they are cheaper than most other comparable units but there's a reason. Buy cheap, buy twice.

Perhaps the better question to ask yourself is what exactly are you looking for in a meter? Spectrum analysers are nothing more than gimmicks there (in my eyes) as they have a very slow refresh rate, far from real time that you would get on real meters (older analogue ones).

Look my friend
In fact i want to detect weak signals that are out of our range such as astra 19.2 not
the wide beam but other beams .
s
So, do you think that spectrum analyser is essential for this purpose?
I am ahobbiest not installer of dishes, so
i can not buy asat fi der with high price.
So do you think that an ordinary satfinder can give me good rssults?
I have read that the following sat finder have agood real time spectrum

http://www.satlink.de/messgeraete/satfinder/satfinder-5hd-slim-dvb-s-und-dvb-s2-nit.html
This device is about 760 u.s.dollar. very high in my country palestine.
So untill now i am not able to decide which type to buy satlink or the other type.

I think you're asking the wrong questions. You would be better off asking what size dish would be required to receive Astra at 19.2E at your location. If you have a smaller than required dish, no meter will help you here.

I have 180cm dish suze.
And my friend in egypt has succeeded to
get signals from astra 19.2 with the same dish size. he used the following lnb:
