        Thanks Dave!
        Great blog for the whole electronics community.
        Mistakes happen but some companies don’t bother…

        Well said Dave! You’ve hit the nail on its head once again. A big thanks goes to Agilent for caring about their customers and shame on Fluke for the way they handled their problem. This will deal their reputation a massive blow and that’s the way it should be unless they address their problem ASAP.

        Can’t say about the GSM problem, but Fluke did replace my 85-3 with a new 87-5 after I reported the sleep-mode current drain problem. Even contacted me back after their original failed service attempt to make good on it.

        Maybe Fluke thinks most people hold their cell phones up to their ears rather than beside their multimeters? You know, maybe its not relevant?

          And I suppose cars don’t need seatbelts because no one would ever want to crash their car?

          And maybe at one distance it bricks the meter, but at a slightly greater distance, it just gives flaky readings. Cell phones do transmit more than 3 feet…

        Yes, it’s good that companies are responding, but making the customer be the quality assurance department is a poor practice.

        Another happy story 🙂
