  • BEST PRICE FOR A REAL FLUKE

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    It has the quality you'd expect from a FLUKE multimeter. Case, buttons, wheel selector, everything fells perfect.

    Changing batteries is easier than in the more expensive multimeters.

    Temperature reading is not necessary but is welcome.

    Cons:

    No cons at all. Everything it's just as I expected.

    The main differences with high level Fluke are:

    - no RMS

    - slower refresh rate

    - no backlight

    - lower CAT protection

    - no range bar at the bottom

    If you want all these specs you have to pay 4 or 5 five the price.

    OtherThoughts:

    As is said in other reviews , it's a Fluke, but its price is much better that the Flukes I could buy in my country. To have a Fluke with every function this has, I would spend more than $300.

    I have tested every function of the multimeter and it works 100% OK. Also compared measurement values with a FLUKE 87 and they both show the same.

    Bottomline:

    I always wanted to own a FLUKE, but the price was too expensive, until now.

    If you are looking for a multimeter of very good quality and a very good price, this is the one.
