  • News - Fluke Responds to Tradema… | last month

    For 30 years I looked at the price of Fluke meters and said “How could they possibly be worth so much more than other meters that do the same thing?”

    Then I used one. Then I bought one! Just couldn’t believe the difference in how they feel and respond to user input.

    I’ll be buying another one - now I’ll probably get it from SparkFun! (I need data logging and a PC connection)

    I love Sparkfun for all they do and sell, but you can get a triple-axis accelerometer, joystick and two push button switches all wired up neatly in a Wii Nunchuck controller… delivered to the US from Hong Kong for $4 each… search eBay.
    I just bought five of them for PIC projects and personal education. I know it’s mostly an economy of scale thing, but 5x the cost for many fewer parts?
