This is the 289/FVF comob kit which inlcudes the the Fluke 289 meter, a pair of Fluke's silicone test leads, a pair of the standard "over the probe tip" aligator clips, a magnectic strap hanger, a second strap tension buckle style hanger, a standard (no frills) temperature probe, a USB adaptor, 289 PC software, an instruction manual, and a softside case for all of these accessories. The accessories are certainly worth the extra cost over the base meter if you're interested in PC interface (assuming you catch it on sale ~$550-$575.)

However you're not that interested in a bag of accessories... You're interested in a professional grade meter. So what sets this apart? This is obviously more than just a typical DMM. The large screen is the most notible difference. This gives this meter flexibility to show the user a plethera of useful information. Obviously this is a True RMS meter, but it's much more. It's a high resolution meter that can give voltage measurements to the hundreths of a volt in the 500V range. It can give measurements to the thousanths of a volt in the 50V range. With an optional ac or ac/dc amperage clamp the user can take current measurements with equally impressive resolutions. In addition there are several windows that give diagnostics such as "peak & valley" AC voltage (true peak + and - waveform voltage), real time min-max-average voltage, and time based data logging. The data logging is designed to record trends and patterns over a period of hours. This recording however is sampled several times a second to again provide the technition with a truly useful resolution. This logging feature can be shown graphically and saved in the meter's internal storge. Of course this can be exported to a PC as well.

The Fluke 289 is an excellent meter. It is feature-packed, has data logging with a PC interface and a large screen that can display multiple data simultaneously (AC+DC, curent+min+max...).

However, after a few weeks of use, I decided this was not what I needed and sold it. Below are some of the negatives of the 289:
* It is big, tall and heavy. It is noticeably more unwieldy than a standard meter like the 87V and it feels more fragile (mainly because of the integrated yellow holster, the sheer weight and the large screen).
* It is slow to start. Somewhere around 5 seconds, but it's noticeable compared to most other meters that are instant on.
* Its UI is fairly complex, with lots of soft-key-driven menus.
* It does do data logging, but it cannot display the data while it's being acquired (a huge gotcha IMHO) and the logging is pretty slow. In addition, FVF, the PC application is not the easiest or nicest and hasn't been updated in a while.

In my opinion, the 289's data logging capabilities are really not all that great so I wouldn't buy it just for that and if data logging is not a requirement, the Fluke 87V makes a much better all-around meter with a simple, familiar UI, instant-on, smaller size/weight and substantially lower price.

If data logging is a requirement, the 289 might work, but look at other options. With a slightly higher budget (and no requirement for portability), bench DMMs are substantially better than the 289 in pretty much all regards. In the $1k range, look at the Agilent 34461A or the Fluke 8846A. In the $500-1000, look at the cheaper Agilent or Rigol units.

I'll spare you the standard, well deserved Fluke accolades. This kit is the ultimate. As a datalogger it works really well, and of course as a DMM with all the bells and whistles. Plus, I was just going through all the doo-dads that came with it and discovered it included what looks suspiciously like the TPAK hangar kit that sells for about $40, including the magnetic hangar that I was very interested in.

You can buy the 289 and have a top of the line Fluke DMM with excellent recording capabilities. But, if you are interested in the latter the kit with FlukeView Forms, a PC application, is worth it. If you don't really care about recording capabilities and/or PC logging ability and just want a really good DMM the Fluke 87 V is hard to beat. I own both. For that matter, the Fluke 179 is not shabby at all, has min/max and average and all the rest. I have one of those too. If you can only afford one DMM look carefully at the 289 and 87 V. If they are both too pricey carefully consider the 179.

The Fluke 289, with the FormsView software is, for now, the ultimate in my opinion. I am just lucky to be able to own all three of the meters mentioned. In closing, don't neglect looking at the Fluke 179 if either of these other guys cost too much.

This is my 2nd Fluke 289/FVF combo. I bought the 1st one 2 years ago, use it to produce data logged charts and embedded systems development/testing. I trust it and love it. The user interface design is great, every thing is easy to access and with minimum number of key stokes, this is what I call brilliant design, with all the available functionality, the fluke 289 is very easy to operate.
With the View forms software, you can produce professional charts.
After I upgraded my old 289 to new firmware, an issue with data logging was solved. The new 289 came with the new firmware.
As a conclusion, it is suitable for electronics, temperature measurements, data logging, producing professional charts. The leads are made of silicon and feels very nice in your hands.
