News - Fluke, we love you but yo…
about 8 years ago
Also, 30 years ago, it wasn't so easy to see the variety of multimeters out there. I don't remember seeing any yellow multimeters 30 years ago, but all I really knew was what Radio Shack carried.
It goes the other way too.. To someone that is unfamiliar with electronic equipment and they buy one of these and it's complete shit and breaks after a month, the next time they see a similar looking Fluke, they might think "Oh yeah I had one of those meters, and they suck ass"
This is a rare case where I'm not rooting for the little guy. If I owned a company that made a very high quality product and all these shitty knock-offs started flooding the market, I'd be pretty pissed off. The whole purpose of these meters looking the way they do is to look like a Fluke meter - they don't look that way by chance. Fluke isn't bullying anyone, I think they're totally justified in this case.
No public wish lists :(
