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 meter is exactly what you expect from a Fluke. The build quality is great, and the unit feels sturdy in my hands. Readings are accurate, no complaints there. The "Volt Alert" setting in high sensitivity mode is extremely sensitive - even in low sensitivity mode it is more sensitive than other NCV meters I have laying around.
I only have a handful of complaints - the screen's viewing angle is extremely narrow and the included test leads are awful.
If you're not viewing the screen from exactly the right angle and with the backlight on the screen looks slightly washed out but still generally readable in normal office lighting. From any other angle the screen is so washed out as to be almost entirely unreadable even with the backlight on. Fortunately, you can boot the meter while holding the backlight key to disable the backlighting timeout, which helps improve usability. I did deduct a star from the overall rating because of the screen quality.
The leads that the unit ships with seem to be added more to bulk out the shipping weight of the unit than as a serious pair of test leads - I've had better quality pairs of leads out of the box of a $20 meter shipped from China. Cables are extremely stiff and the handles themselves feel flimsy and cheap. After promptly throwing the leads in the trash and attaching a better pair of Pomona leads the meter looks more at home in my lab. Not deducting a star for this as I'd expect anyone interested in a good quality meter has probably also invested in a better quality set of leads.
Other than those minor complaints I am extremely happy with this unit.
Excellant produit, évidement c'est un fluke donc c'est plus chère mais j'en ai besoin pour de la vérification de tension dans des appareils de précision. il fait très bien le travail cela fait 1 mois 1/2 que je l'ai et que je l'utilise dans mon travail et je suis généralement satisfait de l'achat.
Coté fabrication: à part le pied qui est un peu fragile si on est un bourrin tout va bien. À propos des probes, elles sont correctes au niveau efficacité. cependant niveau confort j'ai vue mieux chez des fabricants concurrent mais bon elle sont pas désagréables et gradé CAT II 1000v , CAT III à 1000v à 10A et CAT IV à 600v à 10A. Personnellement je m'en suis acheter des meilleurs, celle d'origine sont sécuritaire et très bonne mais c'est un choix personnel. Je le rachèterais si le bien me lâche après 3 ans(oui il est garantit 3 ans).
I've been putting off buying this for quite a while and now that I did buy one, I'm glad I did.
The reviews here and in most other places really are not kidding about this meter having great build quality, There's a very close attention to detail and this is a very well made and very durable meter.
Mine had a small defect, the backlight is not really very even. I'm not sure if it's this batch but I have seen other reviews bring that up. I have seen one of these without this issue. There's also an issue with the display contrast, It looks good at a straight on angle, and it looks great at an angle looking slightly up at the display. The problem is, looking down on the meter. There's very little contrast so it's more faded and it even becomes more difficult to read then it should be. That is the reason for one star off. I would say that it was the battery being bad or slightly dead but I tested it and it was at 9.4V and I put a brand new battery in and found the same issue.
More good things, theres a lot. The meter has a pretty intelligent design for the battery. It's literally impossible to install backwards WHILE not having a little 9v battery clip on a wire that can get damaged. The terminals are literally metal strips poking off the motherboard through the back casing into the battery compartment and the battery "door" itself is what actually houses the battery and the battery terminal end is shaped in such a way that you cannot put the battery in backwards. Overall that is a very clever and good design feature. Quite a few people also mentioned the dial being in a bad location and they do not like how it sticks out but, I mean, how many of these reviews state that they dropped the meter and the dial actually came off or otherwise broke. The dial seems in a bad location but it's also very well made. On top of that in the durability topic, I got sand/dust/dirt all over the meter, to the point where the dial was grinding.
I was like, Hey, this is a Fluke and it has a water resistance rating (IP54), So I simply washed it off under a sink from all angles (Yes, even the banana plug sockets). A day later the dial was perfectly fine and not grinding as well as the meter was completely functional and showed absolutely no care about having been washed a bunch.
Yes that was a bad idea, I knew it, I knew if I had been damaged then I would not have been able to send it back I would have been either stuck trying to fix it or out a meter/200$, No need to leave negative comments, I understood. But there is also absolutely no mention of anyone else on the internet treating their meter in such a way, So I did and I am here to say that it seems like it's not too shabby even in something it isn't officially advertised as being able to take. I do have to say though that if you do this and damage your meter I am in no way responsible or encouraging you, I am just sharing my experience with my own meter.
