I'll get started on a video which will likely end up an example of how not to win a scope.

This is a nice giveaway. Too late for me, might be bit hard to justify why i need another. Had this been bit earlier I might have tried, but got myself a Siglent which fills my needs nicely for the moment. For those of you without an oscilloscope: go for it!

How are you choosing the winner? Is it the best video or you just pick a random video?

This is great (as is that dumpster), and choosing the winner that way is better than full randomness, in my opinion.
If I don't win (which is probable) I would like to apply for a position as dumpster cleaner. That dumpster, of course.

You MUST make a 2 minute video (no longer!)

4th guy posted a 3:21 long video
 :o  :o  :o

But wait, there's more! The 12th guy posted a 4:07 video.
 ^-^  ^-^  ^-^

In your face R&S!
:-DD  :-DD  :-DD

Later edit:
So far, the winner is a guy from the second page, with a 11:56 video.

I have calculated that the time it will take me to clean up my "lab" for a presentable video, times the minimum per-hour wage, would cost me more than simply buying a new scope  ;D

Good day!
Question about restrictions: user from which countries can participate in this giveaway? Do people from Russia have a chance to win and to receive the scope?
Thanks!

I choose not to participate as i guess i can afford the scope if i just save up a while,
Someone that are not fortunate to have a fair salary or lives in a country where this kind of oscillsoscope is unreacheable would, in my opinion, be the best winner of the scope  :-+

£3,785.00.  IMHO That is a HUGE sum of money, especially for a non-professional!

Yep, big money, indeed! Especially when you have to pay the taxes for it.
Let's see, for EU this will be 19% VAT + 16% income taxes + some small import fee like 5%. Not sure about the 5% import fee, so let's just ignore it.

That would be about $1750 USD out of the winner's pocket, so better start saving anyway!

I think what's funniest so far is the number of people who's number of posts in the forum is 1.

Or wait, the number of people who have a commercial lab, but don't care to have a scope higher than 10Mhz.

Or wait, the number of people who can't even use a 10MHz scope yet but wants this one really badly.

Oh wait! There's also some people who have broken scopes, that is, who can't take care of a 10Mhz scope, but want this one real bad!!

And some people who think that showing that they have no scope will give them a better chance. That's the funniest! Someone who doesn't have a scope clearly isn't serious about electronics, so why would Dave give them a professional scope anyway.

I think Dave is either crying in embarrassment, or cracking himself up in laugher at these videos.

Yes, I don't care what country you are from. But you will be responsible for any import fees etc.

People with very few posts are a win for both EEVblog and the community, because the giveaway want to attract new users to the community, which is good for everybody. Many of the newcomers will stick to the EEvblog, which will be a win-win for all.

And yes, the fact that some people didn't carefully read the instructions is funny, but also expected with all the win rush of such a great tool. No reason for embarrassment, it's just fun. All these prove that the giveaway is already a success.  :-+

Looking forward for new video entries, good luck!

I had to delete one entry. Not only was it 30 minutes long, it was mostly about terrorism and political stuff in their country  :palm:
