This is a very good meter for electrical, as well as electronics work. It doesn't have mA or µA, but the regular A range will measure down to 1 mA (as 0.001 A), and combine this with the fact that you're usually measuring voltage, or continuity anyway, so that's good enough for me.
The probes that come with it, while they're genuine Fluke, aren't the best I've used - the insulation on the wiring is a stiffer plastic, not a nice bendy silicone. Which is odd, as on the Fluke website it says you get silicone leads. The meter itself is great. It's expensive, but I can absolutely rely on it being more accurate than I'll ever need it to be. I can also rely on it being safe to use, if it says it's rated at CAT III 600V, and I know that Fluke will have made sure it's not going to blow up in my hand, even if I'm stupid enough to hit it with over 4,000V.
The other meter I considered was the Fluke 17B+, which was a very strong contender, especially as it's half the price, but it doesn't have True RMS (which, I'm told, is one of those things that when you need it, you really need it) and it doesn't have an analogue bar graph.

Fast, excellent bar-graph, good construction, this is a quality meter. BUT.
That makes me wonder why on earth Fluke went on cutting silly corners with a crappy LCD display. The display is contrasted and crisp if viewed from about 30° down. this is where the peak contrast occurs. So that works fine if the meter is laying flat on a workbench.
On the other hand, if you look at the display straight, like you would if the meter is on it's stand or attached to a magnetic hanger at your eyes level, the contrast is so low that the numbers are borderline unreadable. From any angle upwards, the display is basically blank and useless. It's an issue that my previous $15 multimeter did not suffer from.
Such a basic LCD display is so cheap that I almost resent Fluke for going this route.
I am seriously considering returning the unit. At this price tag, it's just unacceptable. Searching about this issue online confirms this is a pretty well known "feature" of the 11x series and going on for YEARS. One would imagine they would have fixed this by now, but they haven't.
The meter display is a bit annoying like a previous review mentioned as you do seem to need to look at it head on otherwise you can't see it. Easy to select what you need. Shuts off on its own if you leave it on. Can take some abuse. All in all an excellent meter! If you need a meter you can't go wrong.
