Question about Garden
I have had experience with both systems you are inquiring about. personally, I think you should get a Fluke, NOTHING even comes close, as I am sure you are aware, any extra cost is soon made up for by features and reliability. I haven't had very good results using Virtual Instruments, they are OK, but.. very cumbersome, in use etc, you just cannot beat a "scope. Now I really recommend the Fluke Scope meter, they are just awesome, in every way.. I have had VERY good results and a cheap repair, when I sent a damaged meter back to Fluke, they reconditioned it and calibrated etc, and the cost was as i remember very reasonable, for what was done, so perhaps you would like to entertain that thought. You can always ask for a "Quote" before allowing repair to proceed, that way you have little to loose. There are many meters and instruments out there, and as you know, a man is only as accurate as his equipment, and I always recommend Fluke, as they are simply the best. Possibly a bit Pricey, they are always worth it. So go with your first instincts, which were indeed right on the money, Fluke all the way. As I said have a look at the Fluke Scope meter, and possibly treat yourself to a wonderful piece of equipment you'll fast wonder how you ever did without it before.

I have not used the mastech meters, but I do know that all Fluke meters are tested to withstand 1000 volts on ohms scales without damage. I own an 87 and have accidently tried to test voltage on the ohms scale with no detrimental effects. Do not scrap the Fluke, no one makes a meter that is as good as or better than Fluke.

I am certain I answered this i the free section when I said you should avoid bargains in certain areas ... heart surgery, fire extinguishers, life boats and volt/ohm multi-meters just to name a few. Stick with the Fluke, a known good product.
I also suggested you check inside to see if the fuse did its job and maybe, that is all that is wrong with your fluke.
Thanks for using FixYa.com
