EEVBlog 121GW Multimeter Owners Club
« on: January 09, 2018, 02:35:37 pm »
After receiving my meter today (thanks again Dave) I thought it would be fun to kick off an owners club, if you want to be listed post the 6 digit EEV serial number and I will start compiling the list :D.

Neat idea  :-+ Once these start getting sold used, it would be cool seeing one you bought on the list.

Apparently there is a problem with those probes?  ;)

I guess this one's the 1st video review of many to follow  :-+ (and of course I'll look for channels that we might include in the big list).

Here's the 2nd (Robert Culver), although using it as a hammer could raise warranty concerns..  :-DD

*edit: More on auto-ranging from over in Adelaide (Robert Culver) Nice shop!

@fanOfeeDIY: Chopstick technique is, in fact, useful for probing. I use it often to free up a hand. :-+

@VK5RC: Nice to see you, Rob! I, too, am surprised by the slow auto-ranging. Perhaps a topic for a separate thread.

I didn't know that both of you have YT channels. I guess I have to make videos, too.

000510, FW 1.02
Perhaps only the ones shipped to Europe got the newer firmware ?

I was backer #1 on the Kickstarter, but I'm happy to see 000001 went to someone worthy  :-+
I slept in on the day of the pre-orders  >:(

Rob, thanks for the auto-ranging shootout (a great way to leverage your TEA ;D). That was very interesting. The Metrahit is really fast.

Thanks bitseeker, Sorry the shoot-out was a bit dodgy, I had cabling giving a shadow and holding everything on camera was beyond my coordination.
The 121's time was pretty close to the U1282A, it was also in company of meters that were at least 2-3x in price as well and still holds its own, in terms of DC accuracy as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the Gossen's time  but I still find it a bit strange to use as a DMM.
Whoah! Watch where that landed we might need it later.

No worries. I haven't seen anyone compare auto-ranging time on that many DMMs at once. :-+
