Rated 5 out of 5 by booboo from Excellent accuracy Ever since EE school, Fluke has always been my go-to multimeter in the last 3 decades for electronics work. But it has always been limited to bench meters, I don't have the same need for high accuracy for portable use and my 8 portable multimeters has been other brands like Sanwa, Extech, and disposable Harbor Freight which I use on-the-go. I have a NIST calibrated voltage standard, I know my Sanwa and Extech meters are all within spec (+/- 1-3%), but never spot on. I decided to purchase the 179 (non-NIST) as a more robust handheld meter, out-of-the-box, it is the only meter that is spot on even at its highest resolution at multiple reference voltages. It doesn't have the resolution of the bench meters, but I thought the meter have every bit of the quality that is worthy of the Fluke name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cshultz14 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 M0ri 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 JB2833 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 James S 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 Mahfu 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.
