  1. This article gives clear idea in favor of the new users of blogging, that in fact how to do
    running a blog.

  2. Dave,

    I know this is an older post but still enjoyable. Although I wanted something that was true RMS, I did end up going with the Extech 430 which was only $90 or so US dollars.

    Interestingly enough you mention you don’t see dual board construction in most multimeters, but the Extech 430 is indeed dual board. They put the two fuses on the underside of the board and you actually remove the input jacks from the housing and remove the entire board if you have to change the fuses.

    Thought you might find this interesting if you ever want to do a review of true RMS cheaper meters.

    Or you could just send me any Fluke you have laying around. 😉

    Keep up the videos!

  3. As a woman just learning about electronics repair and basic programming, I love Amprobe! Apart from the price and consistency they have a more modern feel and appeal for me.
    I’ve found that you have people who insist on the expensive brands like fluke etc or people who indiscriminately and aggressively support chinese brands like uni t, mastech etc.
    Both are unreasonable. As soon as someone puts down or supports a particular brand unreasonably and without explanation, I tune out. Like the guy shouting below.

  13. Amazing! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a totally different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  14. I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  15. Good day! I just wish to give a huge thumbs up for the good information you could have here on this post. I might be coming back to your weblog for extra soon.

  16. Hello! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  17. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
