RoadTest: Agilent U1272A
Evaluation Type: Independent Products
Did you receive all parts the manufacturer stated would be included in the package?: True
What other parts do you consider comparable to this product?: I would compare it to fluke/case naturally.alligator clips
What were the biggest problems encountered?: Not really a problem, but I could not figure out how to get it to read in Fahrenheit only Celsius. But to some I guess it could be..
First off thanks to all that allowed me to do this road test. Secondly this is my first ever review so I hope it's good.
My first impression was that this is a very nice unit, documentation good, they give you the test results for the meter.Very informative instruction booklet.Solid, well made, just looking at it and you can tell that it is durable.The unit itself is a nice size, doesn't get lost on a workbench or fall into an engine compartment easily.
Large screen easy to read even from 3 feet away. And backlighting helps alot when working late nights running down electrical problems on someones vehicle.Continuity tone and other beeps are loud. Large dial and big buttons are nice especially when wearing gloves.Leads are good and long and the interchangeable probes are a nice touch and are easy to hold on to. I did not use all the functions on these meters.but what I did use I used a lot on a range of things like trouble shooting home electrical problems, home appliances,auto electrical, some circuit testing, fuses, batteries. I even used the thermocoupler to check my kids temp. (underarm of course)because the thermometer was broken, works great.
All in all for the things I used this meter for I cant complain one bit. It is one of the best made meters I've ever used. Worth every penny, and I would highly recommend these to someone else.
I too would think that a case would be provided, considering from my research of photos on Google that with all the various probes you would really need some sort of storage for them. Good review, would of been nice to hear your opinion on the functions you did not use. Otherwise, good job. Thanks for your time.
