 I have seen an awful lot of flukes being sold cheap by Chinese company's. I wonder how many of these are fakes and therefore have not bought from this source despite the tempting pricing.

I have yet to see a fake Fluke. I don't claim they don't exist, but they seem to be rare. What you find regularly are look-alikes with brands like "Fuke" or claims like "as good as Fluke". Fluke produces a line of products for the Asian market (15B, 17B) and those seem to be very common on those Chinese web sites.

 Fluke's "warranty" policy is ridiculous! A company should stand behind the product they make, no matter where the consumer bought it.

Sorry. Just had to get that out.

Not to worry. This is Fluke's "official" policy. They still have to honor the warranty if you purchased it new. Try them when the time comes. All you need is a receipt and from talking to them, they usually waive even that requirement. I do warranty work for several companies. This is the law in the U.S.
