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

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.
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.
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.
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.
