Product Reviews

  • "Poor accuracy and repeatability at low capacitance values" by jchacon on 3/19/2012
    Overall: 1.5 out of 5
    Value:
    Quality:

    Promises a measurement range from 0.1pF to 199.99mF but it cannot deliver an accurate reading for an SMD 1.5pF using the optional SMD tweezers. The reading is all over the place, the zero function seems to provide random values between -1 and 1 instead of zero. I've tried three of these, they all do the same. If you need them to measure low capacitance values (less than 100pF), this is not the tool for it. A side by side comparison with a cheaper Tenma meter, showed much better accuracy and repeatability. It seems that Agilent is getting used to put out poorly designed products. Long gone are the days when one could buy Agilent products with absolute confidence.
