I sell online and there are places that are a pain to ship to.  It's not worth the time. Use a remailer service that sends bulk shipments to your country.  You pay domestic shipping to the seller and a fee to the remailer.

I receive some stuff through mail-forwarders and trusted one make too much overhead for $200 dmm.
If you do not ship to such places - you simply declare it without wasting any time, don't it?

He offered a deal outside of ebay 2 times, on the first attempt I send him my email address in attachment. The game of patience is near to end.

I rather create a long-term WTB for this meter on this forum and if it doesn't work at all I then decide not to want this meter anymore.

Warehouse humidity is a hypothesis but I think it's notable than nothing else inside or outside of the box was affected.

Um, for several of us (I have a B) the staples on the quick start guide were corroded to black dust. On another note, there was no visible mold on mine, but it had a "funky" smell. I did not treat mine in any way but the smell is gone (to my nose anyway).

My 'B' model had a single patch of mold on the rear of the meter near the IR port.

The meter was in a plastic bag and the staples on the handbook were slightly rusty. The meter did not smell musty though.
I have no idea where the mold came from but wondered if it was just in the air when packed and grew over a prolonged period of time in appropriate conditions. It was interesting that the mold was only in one very defined patch on my meter. Most strange I must say. The mold has not in any way effected the meters looks or functionality.

Hello Nmori87 and welcome here.
I bought one from you and I am very happy with it.
It was Agilent branded.
Some people got a Keysight branded one, do you still have some of those?

No questions at all. I've bought one of the U1252B from you (Agilent branded) and I am happy with it.  :-+

Thank you for making these DMMs available for a reasonable price. Very appreciated.

Another happy customer here, I've got a keysight one and my boss then bought 4 of them and got Agilent ones (I can at least tell which one is mine at work easily)

I've been avoiding temptation to click buy it now on another one or 2 of these, but I hope to do so soon

Received today one of this http://www.ebay.com/itm/142463366624 u1252a. Meter is almost like new, beside some light wiping marks at lens. I don't even found any dust under buttons and rotary switch.
Firmware - 0.91, date - 7.01.09 He also have some u1273, u1272.

Power on with the "dual" button pressed shows firmware version on primary and date on secondary display. This is the date of production?
Also I don't find no traces in "user's and service guide"  of any power-up option like "null", mentioned above in the thread.

The u1252a models are 180$ now through eBay. I would sell them for 170$ with PayPal friends and family also

I don't find any valuable teardowns on this meter except two videos on the youtube so I decide to post it here.















These two stickers on top half of case seems to be removed from that shielded unit.
It's looks like traces of repair when that unit being removed and label from it being transferred to the meter insides.

What kind of pricing would get these Agilent u1252a meters moving?
