Let us know how much the customs officers made you bleed...

In EU Ebay took care for me of all that, shipping was 45$ customs/VAT/w.e 65$ +200$ for meter total ~302 euros.

I have ordered one from the USA and when the one from grumpydoc became available, I bought his as well.
Seems to be a real good deal and good addition to my U1253B

Anyone here buy one off this seller since April 7?? I bought one Friday 9am April 7.....I communicated with the seller and he said he would ship either Sat morning  (April 8) or Monday.....Well ...Monday evening nothing changed ..Still said Item not shipped...soooo..I emailed the seller..he said sorry..it's going out tonight....
Well Tuesday afternoon..
.no indicator ...shipping status hasn't changed..still says Item Paid (April 7) but not shipped....I just sent off another email but no response as of yet....Honestly...I'm sure he's just slowwww at shipping..but I'm surprised not 1 negative feedback. It's now been 5 days...I'm paid the equivalent of over 300$ Canadian...so I'm not super impressed. I'm also an Ebay seller..my items always ship in 24hrs or less.

Sigh hhhh.

He's legitimate, though some have reported that stuff occasionally ships late. It seems like yours fell into one of those times.

Unfortunately, not all eBay sellers are punctual. It's good that you're prompt with shipping. I always include in my feedback if someone ships promptly, packs well, communicates well, etc., because so many fail at the basics.

Well I now have a spare :)

If anyone in the UK wants to buy it then PM me

Aug 2013 cal v217 firmware. Looks to be in spec compared with my DMMCheck/Keithley 2015 but I can't do an exhaustive calibration check.

£200 if anyone wants it - that's cheaper than buying off nmori87-us which comes to about £237 after all charges and fees, even if you offer him $200.
I bought this one from grumpydoc, it arrive today and works perfectly.
What a great deal, thanks!

Just got one from nmori87-us - Agilent branded, calibration from June 2012, f/w 217. Everything seems to be brand new and working fine.

What is the recommendation for the data cable/adapter (IR-USB or IR-BT)?

Thank you!

I am planning to buy data cable/adapter that Keysight has on its website for this dmm.
Is there some other option?

There are at least 3 options: U1117A IR-BT at $100, U1177A IR-BT at $50 and U1173B IR-USB at $33. I wonder, what is a better/future proof option not relying on outdated USB drivers, obsolete s/w, etc... preferably with opensource support.

Found my answers (about U1173A/B and U1177A) on sigrok website.
 - U1173A has Prolific PL2303HX inside;
 - U1173B - Prolific PL2303TA;
 - U1177A - CSR BC417...

I use U1117A with U1252B, the range is quite good and the BT signal is really strong even across few rooms with concrete walls.

Used Keysight's provided apps on Android and the prog for Windows ran on laptop Win7 without any problem.

All this time uses Eneloop AAAs without problem and battery life is quite good I should say.

Friend has U1177A and complaining the BT signal is not strong enough and really want to switch to U1117A after trying with mine.

The U1177A's BT is only rated for 10 meters range, while U1117A is at 100 meters, that is 10 times more.

I have just ordered :

4 x U1117A
1 x U1115A

This way I can look at 4 meters at the same time
Funnily, the Adroid and iOS apps can only handle 3 instruments at the same time.

If my memory serves me well, last time my U1117A was used at friend's laptop running Win 7 with a USB BT adapter if I'm not mistaken, and it was across 2 rooms without complain.

Didn't aware the 3 meters limitation on smartphone, as all this time when I used on my Android phone, it was only few meters within line of sight and in the same room, never tried that further. A note to self for testing that next time, thanks.


Edit : Ignore this post, it was a misunderstanding ...  :-DD

Corrected that sentence.

I recently picked up an 1177A for $29 at Fry's.  For that price I can live with the short BT range. I'm most likely to use it with a laptop for data logging, etc.     I wish it worked with IOS though. :(  I do have an old android phone I can use it with.

Yes, Sweden here. I had to pay for the GSP, which really sucks - way more expensive than other shipping, much slower & zero chance of slipping through without having to pay for customs  :P

Isn t it optional? And doesn't it include customs?

It was the only shipping alternative for me as far as I could see... and customs isn't included, but is (automatically) added on top of shipping & handling at checkout  :(

Thanks to mtdoc, I've just picked-up a U1177A at my local Fry's for $29. I don't have any apple devices - if it works with Android/Linux, it's all I need.

While at Fry's I've noticed some ads for Keysight DMMs... they are clearing U1253B, U1242B and U1273A.

Didn't bother writing the prices down while at the store... Fry's website shows U1253B at $275, U1242B at $135 and U1273A at $241.

They are clearing all keysight, incl. scopes.  50%.  There's a thread about it in buy/sell.  You have to pick up in person.  Oh and the website is atrocious.  Anyway I also got an 1177A.
