Thanks guys! I am very happy. I checked if it was calibrated and it shows 001...That means it was not touch from anyone beside when it was made in the 2010. if you want to check how many times your 87V have been calibrated do this:

a) While meter is off press and keep holding down the "min max" bottom
b) turn meter to V in ac mode
d) press one time the autoHOLD bottom
e) turn off meter and it will be back to normal use.

you will see how many times your meter have been calibrated...and if you see this 001...that means it is been calibrated one time from factory (NEW)

PS: BE CAREFUL NOT TO PRESS ANY OTHER BOTTOMS WHILE YOU ARE DOING THIS OR YOU WILL MAKE A MISTAKE WITH CALIBRATION

What made you decide on the 87 over the 177/179? The 87 is an industrial meter as opposed to the 170 series which is more of an audio repair meter. I bought the 179 new in July 2010 for $257. Included a carrying case and a beautiful Probe Set Made In U.S.A. by Probe Master. Included in the set is a pair of test probes, a set of alligator clips and a set of screw type connectors. All high quality.
Fluke departed from listing the different function specifications on the back of the meter. That's a shame. You now have to look in the manual.
