Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing... When i was young I could not afford a Fluke DMM but 30 years later I bought my first Fluke (179) and could not be happier! I use it for my hobby and every time I work with the Fluke I enjoy it so much...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fluke 179 A good meter to be sure but only four star from me as it's so slow to come up with a voltage reading. Put it on a known 240 or 400 volt supply and it's "umm errr....pause.... okay 230 volts it is". Just drives me nuts when I'm in a hurry on a breakdown. Probably about half the speed of my old TES meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally upgraded After years of reliable service (almost 20) my Fluke 73 had to be replaced (Forklift casualty) My number one upgrade option was I wanted a background display light, I didn't have a need to upgrade to the 87 series, so I went with the 179 kit, I could not be more satisfied with my choice. When I first got into the maintenance field I learned my electrical troubleshooting with Fluke meters and haven't looked at any others. Along with my 374 clamp on I use these everyday without any issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 179 = 2nd to none I have owned a 179 for years. I am pleased with its ruggedness, ease of care, accuracy and size. As a professional, who uses a 179 for troubleshooting 480 and 600 volt cabinets, I can honestly say I would want no other meter in my toolkit. The temperature probe comes in especially handy!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new F179 DMM F179 is a very top of the line DMM! I love it!!! The selector dial is rugged and the 9v battery is easy to change without taking apart the entire meter. Dust can be easily cleaned out of the display area. I also own two F77's series I and II. I conect all three DMMs to a DC power supply, they give me the same figures. The F179 starts up faster than the two F77's when being turned on.
