Does anyone have confidence in them I have tried many and they all give me different readings differing by large margins within a few seconds of each other

Like all these things very subjective in the test mechanism, and the actual traffic down your wire at the time.
This can fluctuate a great deal second by second according to the contention ratio of your particular service.
The only true figure I guess is the pop up box on the task bar icons,
A as I type my '8mbps' is showing 5.3 Mbps which is pretty constant as it happens.
