Looks great, but only you can judge how a specific meter's features match your requirements. If the cost is OK for you, you can't go wrong with a Fluke.

I have had an 87 for a decade or more and love it. It has features very close to those of the 88V/A.

Have fun.

Yes, I have blown more fuses than I care to admit in my ammeters. It is definitely something to avoid by being alert to what you are doing, but the instrument should survive. It's a tough lesson. The fuse is there to avert disaster, not to cover for routine lack of attention. My usual mode of failure is to make a current measurement and then forget to reposition the test leads before setting down the instrument. Now I try to remember to reposition the leads immediately after each current measurement no matter what my intended next measurement is.

Hard to say if there might be some subtle damage. A fuse lets a lot more than the rated current through before blowing, depending upon the speed of the fuse and the degree of overload. You are probably OK, but try to be more attentive in the future. Most d'Arsonval (moving pointer) multimeters either are not protected at all or, at least, are more subject to damage from such overload, so be careful.
