The Milbank is not too bad for me but only one quirk is I have to watch the meter socket lugs make sure you do not overtoqure it. ( they can break without warning )
And the last part is make sure you watch the meter socket postion to make sure they are in correct postion if you get one of them off kinker you can overheat the lug behind the meter itself ( seems like smart meters are worst and it don't take much to smoke them )
The SqD is good one I have used them in both USA and France ( it will have different meter set up than what North Americain will be )
The costwise between the two is not that huge a spread but the key issue is I can able order a special socket quick so either way I can use them as long it approved per POCO specs.
