Reviews: Fluke 179 True-RMS Digital Multimeter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional value and reliability Been using Fluke 17x for many, many years. They are my standard order for any new employee who needs a meter and for any "new bench" supply. The 179 is high reliable and accurate. Battery lasts forever. All the features you need are there, easy to use. You can trust the measurements. Some may say the Name adds a needless price tag difference, but the devil is in the details and I disagree. Features that really make the difference: - Fast and accurate continuity check (easily one of the most commonly used and important features in product development labs) - Fast bargraph - Very accurate TrueRMS AC measurements. - Very high input impedance. - High quality probes. It's the portable version of a bench meter, if you don't need the few extra features and resolution of the 87V. I have dropped these and seen them dropped tens of times, never seen one break. Only had to change 1 battery, after many years. You can't go wrong with a 17x.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good. I have been using fluke 179 meter for two years. It is a wonderful miter sanwa and mico works ten times better. This meter has changed my work and time a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 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.
