Agilent U1272A Demo Unit
« on: April 23, 2020, 01:46:43 pm »
Greatings everyone,

Long time creeper, on and off since was in college I think, and I have learned quite a bit over the years from here, especially when it comes to the equipment I want to acquire for my home lab.

I'm currently looking for a new DMM and I saw an Agilent U1272A on the Keysight ebay store so I decided to make an offer. It wasn't until after I made the offer that I found out that these meters have a pretty bad flaw when it comes to measuring DC current in a noisy environment. The serial number falls within the ones mentioned on the service note (U1272A-07A).

Should I be worried about this meter having this flaw or would it be safe to assume it has been fixed?

Thanks in advance :)

If it's from the official Keysight ebay store I'd expect any remedial work to have been carried out.

EDIT: The only thing that would put me off is the fact it's an OLED display...

You're probably right. I contacted them through ebay, and they said if it wasn't fixed it would be covered so no worries regarding that I guess.

You might be thinking about the u1273a regarding the OLED screen, the u1272a has a LCD thankfully.
