BEST PRICE FOR A REAL FLUKE – Fluke 17B 2.6" LCD Digital Multimeter Meter (2*AA included) Reviews

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.
Other:
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.
