The Rigol has it for me - it is simply astonishing value.
If only the fan were quieter...


Does the Rigol come with probes? If not, which probes should I get?

Mine came with probes, full accessories clips and a cable with crocs.

Don't forget the bitscope:
http://www.bitscope.com/

USB or Ethernet. Dual/Quad oscilloscopes with logic analyzer and wave generator in one box. It's an open source design.


The Bitscope looks interesting, but I'm on a Mac and I don't think there is software that supports Mac.


Bitscope does support Windows and Linux. I remember having read about Mac support too but I'm not sure.

In the low-cost/diy camp, has anyone here tried this out:

http://xoscope.sourceforge.net/

It apparently uses a buffer circuit between the probes and the sound card of a Linux PC or laptop. I think this might be my next small project, if I can figure out why it won't build against a recent version of GTK+...

Downside: really low sample bandwidth (it's a sound card, after all).

You guys might want to watch this before buying your first scope:

I often find him entertaining although the voice is annoying. :)

I disagree purely because we need more interest in lower end cheaper hobby o'scopes in order to force the low end real o'scopes to lower their prices. This will also cause the hobby o'scopes to continue improving, look at how the DSO Nano has evolved into the DSO Quad.

2 channel scope, display on laptop screen. Easy to assemble.$70 plus shipping, includes 2 probes.

Also nice,  & free, is Visual Analyzer from these guys  http://www.sillanumsoft.org/
I have used with a microphone to analyze sound, have not made up a 1/8" or 3.5mm jack to plug into my sound card to try that.

Yeah, get a Rigol1052E, you won't regret it. I have had mine for half a year and have so far very impressed by its performance and price!

For completeness, and just because this is an Arduino forum, here's a few Arduino-based scopes:

Bringing up this old post again - appoligies

The Rigol DS1052E...
Has anyone got the DS1052D ?

By the looks of it, it has a logic analyzer built into it also. I am wanting to get a scope and a logic analyser, so getting something that does both would be brilliant. Question is, is it more economical to get the E and a seperate LA?

I have just emailed off to get pricing from local suppliers, hopefully the come back ok.

DPScope. Pretty cool scope.
