Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great meter! I've had my 179 for about a month now and I will say that compared to the fieldpiece I had, this is the Cadillac of meters. So easy to use and read. I won't go with any other meter from here on out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Realiable, Robost, Fast, Accurate I have a laptop and PC repair shop in Iran. Although it is very hard to find fluke products here (due to the sanctions) let alone parts and accessories, but buying 179 totally worth it. In my diagnosis I never question the reading and speed and accuracy of this meter saves a lot of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Control and Electrical Meter This meter is great! I work as a systems control technician and i have to say this meter is both user friendly and very reliable. I primarily use this meter on Automation controls to trouble shoot and perform point to point inspections on hvac controls. But I also use this meter on vfds, motors, actuators and micro controllers. If your looking for a durable meter that can do a lot, this one is it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! I have had my 179 for a year or so now and I am very impressed with this unit. This meter replaced my perfectly working 112, which now stays home for trouble shooting around the house while my 179 goes to the job and puts money in my pocket. Someone once told me "you are only as good as your tools", and having the 179 on the job gives me the confidence to trust my readings. I am super happy, with all of my fluke purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all around I picked up a 179 recently and I'm very happy with it. I was up and using it within minutes of taking it out of the box. It has all the features I need and work, around the house, and with my hobby electronics. The construction is solid and the controls are easy to use. I'm looking forward to years of use with this meter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have True RMS Multimeter I originally purchased this while I was in Electronics Engineering and Robotics Automation schooling. I never would have imagined I would use it on a day to day basis outside of my career and schooling. Perfect for automotive applications. I cannot tell you durable this thing is and how many times I have dropped it on the hard concrete garage floor diagnosing electrical drains on my truck. The Hold and backlit features are second to none. No need to go back multiple times to remember what you measured. I highly recommend this model. Helps me on my day to day basis with my current job diagnosing alarm systems as well as 66 blocks. Works well for high and low voltage applications.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of the Fluke 179 The Fluke 179 is the preferred DVM for our test lab and at our labs in Dearborn Mi campus. The model 179 has proven to be a real workhorse in our lab for trouble shooting along with test setups. used by lab tech and engineers along with our skilled trades. The 179 is rugged. reliable and holds calibration better that any other competitors meters. We have tried competitors maters but have always come back to the Fluke line of equipment. In short you get what you pay for. Keep up the Great quality that we all have come accustom to from Fluke.
