To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was obviously a second user product. Sellotape over the plastic packaging and scuff marks on rear of the unit itself. I would like Fluke to get in touch with me regarding this purchase, as it deminishes their quality brand.
It’s a solid meter and has the features I wanted but the limitation of viewing angle is atrocious when compared to my +25 year old Fluke and even my newer cheap ones. Really, I just got a $30 Proster LCR meter with the same size LCD readout and it blows this Fluke away, even my 20 year old KRM puts the Fluke to shame. . Had I known it was this bad I would have had second thoughts about buying it.
Don't like LCD display. It has a very narrow-angle of view. Unless You looking about 45-degree angle from the bottom, all other angles very dim. And if you looking on the LCD straightforward, 90-degree angle, and try to tilt just a little bit toward you, YOU WILL SEE NOTHING. The backlight is terrible too, do not help much. I am disappointed about such famous company like FLUKE. Maybe it is just that model, but steel I do not like it.
meter is perfect but display sucks, im pro tech, and wanted something for my second bench, so i got this and returned it cuz i couldn’t see the numbers , display is horrible , got another fluke 289 and happy now
This low end meter has wasted my time more than once for sensitive troubleshooting and would not recommend. You HAVE to spend more $ to get an accurate & reliable Fluke meter. Their high dollar stuff seems to do alright.
I got a bundled deal for $150, supposed to get a 117 meter, fluke magnetic strap holder, the twist safe leads, and the yellow C35 case. What I got, the 117 with cheap leads, no magnetic strap, and the newer style case that looks nothing like the pictures. The meters display isn't great but the meter is nice none the less. I should have saved up for a better meter and bought locally. I've been wanting one for 15 years, sadly this is how it turned out.
