Fluke Quality at China Price – 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:
Solidly built accurate meter with all the most used features. I've tested this against my workmates more expensive flukes and it stacks up just fine.
Cons:
The continuity beep could be louder and it needs a back-light to be truly versatile.
Other:
Would be great if dx sold the TPAK hanging kit for this and the 15b as it makes the product much more versatile.
Bottomline:
For $100 you can't go past it. If you're trying to decide between the meters on dx and you're going to be dealing with deadly voltages definitely buy this one, it's rated 300v CatIII so is good for all your "normal" uses.
