Spotted new birds...(Siglent MSO/SDS2000, SDS3000)

Siglent

SDS2000 and 3000?
Strange birds. Evolution proceeds?

If practice and theory is not equal it tells that used application of theory  is wrong or the theory itself is wrong.
It is much easier to think an apple fall to the ground than to think that the earth and the apple will begin to move toward each other and collide.

Looks nice, 4 channel, maybe even LA or function gen option? Proper intensity grading. Old school LeCroy color scheme.
I am interested. Can you get a sample for a sneak preview ;)

Not surprising about the colour scheme as some of the LeCroys are Siglents.

There are some pictures on the Siglent web, marketing news section. It seems that they are showing them of at major fairs.
Unfortunately, none of the promo pictures gives any further details, apart from what looks like auto probe interface on 3000 series.

Not really. They look very much like the way the Japanese design their scopes. They make the case high and narrow so you have more room on your test bench.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

I heard Siglent were coming out with a new scope. Very Agilent looking two tone knobs?
And of course clearly aimed at the Agilent 2000X and 3000X based on the numbers. That's the new game in town to duplicate the model series numbers.

Based on the dates, were showing them back in April:

Looks like they are right under the display.

Yeah, quite unusual to have them under the screen, and nowhere near the vertical controls  :wtf:

The SDS3000 looks to be equivalent in height to the Agilent 4000 series that doesn't fit on your average shelf.

At least there isn't the liberal splash of pastels as is the trend these days. I see a little on the vertical controls and I guess some on the connectors but less than on some Chinese "toy-like" scopes.

What was the reasoning for not having them near their controls?  even to the left or right.  Under the display makes no sense.

Oh, these are weird. Well, LCDs and CPUs are cheap these days. The 1996 is far away, it's time to stop using those QVGA 240×320 displays. And in 20 years we will have 12-bit ADC scopes as standard, I hope!

Another teaser leaked from Siglent for the new 3000 series, here is what I managed to read from this marketing photo:

* max 1 GHz bandwith
* 4 GS/s sampling rate
* 20 Mpoint memory
* 300 000 wf/s update rate !

Siglent - the new 3000 series
I wonder if it will be sold under the LeCroy brand, like the WaveAce series.

Siglent looks like it's coming out with interesting gear.  Too bad you can't get it in the US easily.  Ah well, we can't have everything here!

Hey, this Siglent SDS2000 scope looks better than Rigol DS2000 or GW Instek GDS2000A. It is clearly inspired by Agilent MSOX2000.
It looks great.  :-+ :-+ :-+

But it is still sold only in China, probably.

My main complaint with the SDS1000 series is the crappy screen and the slow UI ... if they've fixed that, and maybe start properly testing the scopes before they send them out the factory, it might be worth waiting for instead of getting a Rigol DS2000 series.

Nothing on ebay so far...
I'm not saying we should kill all stupid people. I'm just saying that we should remove all product safety labels and let natural selection do its work.
