Nothings better than the classics! I have the 87v, and it's the best DMM I've ever owned.
Great video. Thanks for sharing. I’m a little late to the party but wanted to get your thoughts on whether it’s worth getting the 87v max vs the 87v. I’m not a pro like you and your viewers. I’ve got a small farm in the PNW and will be adding new buildings/new wiring...and then there’s the typical troubleshooting of past home owner “electricians” who were kind enough to pass their problems down to me. I like the quality of Fluke, having used other multimeters in the past (117/179) and feel it’s time to step up and get one for my own. Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
You are absolutely wrong when it comes to reading amperage, specifically low amperage such as in electronics. A clamp meter is not designed for the same level of accuracy/precision and/or resolution. I have this meter specifically for working with electronics.
Screen Protector: Is is factory sized, or did you just cut a phone display to size manually to fit the screen. Just want to know what the options are. Thank you.
Did it come with the amp jack covers when you bought it?
Excellent multimeter, in my country Argentina, is too expensive this meter.
Like wise happy holidays... And, good video....,, some of the other guys that make videos don't even know what all the features of this great multimeter you are demonstrating.. Good job.
I have the 87 ( old one) and I think is just as good...mines looks brand new, it’s up to you... how you take care of it..., good video... I do residential electrical and automotive repairs and my old fluke 87 never failed me...oooo, be careful on that statement ( you are as good as your tools) ... sometimes your tools will not be honest with you... I make my own testers to do the reading...
Got mine today. Can you share using some advanced features and tricks
The 87v is in the top 5 DMM's of all time. I believe those test leads have a safety feature, there is a yellow coating that shows if there is a tear or crack. Nice video, keep it up!
Sigue subiendo buenos vídeos.
You have a lot of instruments!!!
That 87v is the old trusty Dusty that won't die and stays spot on accurate!
Wish fluke model will you recommend for daily electronic repair?
I got one for $10 at a yard sale...
I would think an 87-V going for anything around $100 is likely stolen.
YOU DONT KNOW THAT THE FLUKE METERS THAT;S THE 87 5
2:48 and 2:53 what is that sound?
How do you use the ohms range scale on these ? I can’t find anywhere that tells me what and how to use
When you see those finger nails... you know he knows what he is talking about !!!
Can we measure 100ms pulse of 24VDC using this multi meter
GR8T info.I don't have much experience with Big Boy meters. Now I WANT ONE 👍😁 Thank you
The superman of Flukes is the model 27 and 28 series 2
who likes fluke instruments?
My question is are they good for working with motorcycle
28 bucks on ebay.. for the holster
I have the Fluke 87V Brand new for sale on offer it up for $250
I just bought a Fluke 287 how does this compare?
What did you record this with ? An old flip phone ? The picture quality is bad, the sound quality is even worse. And 14 minutes of showing two hands twiddling a dirty DMM around ? That doesn't make for a very interesting VIDEO ! Nothing to see here folks. EDIT: not only that, but you state false facts (@11:15). I own a Fluke 87V and the Relative function (Rel) DOES work also in capacitance mode (in order to cancel out the capacitance of the leads and input). Please check your facts before making a review.
Fluke 87 V is over value multimeter for hi price, Amprobe AM-160A is better machine.
Pretty sweet deal I picked mine up and a pawn shop for 120$ cash I couldn’t believe it lol
I wish there was a teardown video of the Fluke 87v. I couldn't find one so far.
Want to see you doing a review of Fluke 87-V Max. It's different from Fluke 28-II.
The best multimeter for value??? Agilent can't beat it for the price I guess. Poor agilent!
I have an 87V Max coming today. This review helped me a lot. Looks to be a lot better than my 'old' Fluke 73 III, which I love.
Hello, you mentioned that all the Flukes have good sensitivity...does that apply to even the 117? I'm debating on going all in with the 87V or the 117. My uses will be robotics mostly, hobby stuff, but I do not want to be limited later if I get into diagnosing circuit boards or something... Any thoughts on that would be appreciated.
I am disappointed about the self tappers, metal inserts should definitely be standard at this price point.
I am a hobbyists and I own my Brymen BM235 for a while, and I consider buying a second more capable meter, I have some M830s but they are not great, I am torn back and forth whether I should get a Brymen 869s or the Fluke 87 V, the problem is that I don't know whether the premium for the Fluke is worth for me, because for €500+ with accessories for the Fluke, I could get the Brymen for about €200, and would have money left to get a Rigol 1000 series, or with additional €200, a Rigol 2000 series. I don't know, I think that would be better for me to get the Brymen and a 2000 series 100 Mhz 2-Channel for about €800, than getting the Fluke for €500. Let me please know what are your thoughts on this, as I said I like to play around and I also do electronics repair like Phones, Computers, TVs and car electronics troubleshooting.
can you do a demo of the 87 V MAX, thanks
Can you please tell me which multimeters have wrong probe insertion alart
Measuring fuses in automobiles on continuity, if there is a consumer on a blown fuse it will still beep but show something else. How to prevent such false beeping? This is a problem if you are not looking at the meter. Once because of this i lost few hours checking wires and power because the fluke gave a false beep, and i did not look at the reading. Honestly the reason you put it on beep mode is to only hear the reading.
Very complete review-good job.... -Jim H
Excelent vid,well done.
Does anybody know if the fluke 87 have true RMS AC plus DC ? My Greenlee DM 860 has it.
Thanks for the video. FYI.... if i remember right, i think i read it is IP67 rated
Still, a great video. Hope I hear back from Voltage Standard. It has been a while.
The contrast difference might because you put it in the middle.
One of best reviews I have seen. Thank you.
Almost a full hour of verbosity and you never even mention the AC range.
What are the defenses from fluke 87 and 88V/Automotive?
Please fluke 87 better O fluke 17b+ ?
I think that advertising multimeter as "waterproof" is a mistake.
A noob user can buy it (for example his friend electrician told him that fluke meters are the best) - but a noob user may misunderstand "waterproof"
And using a wet multimeter will be a safety hazard.
But it's not Fluke fault: noob can get electrocuted even without misused tool: just stick a damaged power cord, or put a finger into powered bulb socket.....
That's an impressive. I already had one 87V for electronics engineering myself. It was best multimeter. Usually, I checked capacitors to make sure if alright (other functions as well). My dad had an old 87 multimeter last for many years when I was almost childhood but finally broken he dropped then he continued trust to replaced a new one. Bright yellow holster is a pretty good contrast than other multimeter. Someday, I get another one just like this one in the video (already read the specs but liked features with 3 "AA" batteries double life than regular 9 Volts battery).🔋👌🏼
This is the definition of ruggedness
I wish this meter came with fluke connect capability
Is made in China?
Love from Bangladesh ❤❤❤❤❤
I love fluke❤
The 87V Max advantages over the 87V:
1) increased water, dirt & drop protection
2) increased battery life
3) backlit buttons.
1) Smaller: 5 mm narrower, 18mm taller & 20mm thinner
2) >2VDC Diode Test Voltage (87V Max only 2VDC)
3) Rubber surround bumper (lacking on 87V Max)
Your the only matter I buy and trust. That being said way would I want one with a NIST rating?
What a useless video. Come on fluke. I'm fresh off of your website and I want to see a demo of the features the 87v doesn't have. Apparently the max has a temperature option that the standard model doesn't. I want to see that, not a simulated work day set to generic rock music. Can we get a real video please?
Is there a difference between 87V vs 87V MAX?
Looks like a nice meter! That was a well-made video!
Isn't this a fluke 28-ii
Is the 87V Max assembled in USA?
Is there a difference between the fluke 27/28 series and this 87v max?
Wow, nice! I wanted to buy the 87V, but then I saw the 87V Max - and I'm in love.
I think, Hioki is better than fluke.
I am from Libya i love fluke 💕
