Fluke 189/289 Multimeter Review & Fluke 87 Comparison
With battery life that bad, I’m surprised that it does not come with a wall wart adapter add on.
I own a first generation 189 (purchaced new) and I was worried about the short battery life when I got it, but after 3 years I can say it isn’t that bad.
I takes about a year to show BAT on display.
I admit tho, I don’t use it daily…
What really disapointed me was the (7 seg) LCD. Not all segments have the same contrast and some are so fade that I have to look at 90 degrees angle. Awfull viewing angle.
I wonder if I got a faulty one?
Yes. Its’s faulty. Problems with the rubber contacts to the LCD. You could repair it by yourself.
hi friends, it is posible to find service manuals for my 287 ?
it fall from 1 floor and dont turn on again.
Sorry for my bad english an thancks.
Hi Dave, great brief review/comparison video blog!
I feel that two products compared belong in a different class and are aimed at different users with different priorities.
A comparison of the 87 and 177 might have been more appropriate.
