So at some point while I was working on my hard drive display, my trusty multimeter died.
It 866’d itself…
No matter what I do to revive it, all it does now is display the number “866”. Even a fresh battery couldn’t save it (at least I think it was fresh…had trouble measuring it…). I got this meter off amazon for $20 at about the time I was writing this post, and it’s served me well as you’ve probably seen throughout my blog.
Welp, it’s no good to me dead, so I promptly trashed it and totally splurged on this monster:
I’m not one to write product reviews, but you’ll be seeing some of the awesome features of this Fluke 87-V on my blog in the future. So far, I can say that it feels incredibly solid and its continuity test is instantaneous!
