Yes, i looks like a PMP but that's the reason of it's low price. Saved some money on making the shell.

I'm not criticizing it. I think it's awesome and a clever idea. I just bought an oscilloscope, and I'm broke... but I'm still tempted to buy one of these!

A DSO with MP3 play function... Sounds crazy, but not a bad idea for Protable DSO~lol

Forgive me for going off topic a  bit, but, once again I will be showing my true colors (i.e. revealing that I'm a software person, and not an electronics-hardware person) by asking a simple question I can't wrap my head around.

Will someone please explain the functional difference between a digital scope and an analog one? Why can this digital scope cost so little, when it seems like even a low quality analog scope is a few hundred $$?

Grumpy_Mike

An analogue scope requires a CRT (Cathode Ray tube) with it's associated high voltage drivers and amplifiers. This cost money, is bulky and is not a very mass production item.

A digital scope just needs some A/D, a processor and some sort of display. All these items are small and cheap thanks to their components being used in consumer mass production items.

Do analog scopes have any advantages that justify the higher price?
