    EEVblog #1020 – Is A $7 LCR / Component Tester Any Good?

    Is a $7 LCR Meter / Component Tester from Ebay any good? Dave tests the ...

      Dave, did you order the -S model with the built in signal generator? It would be interesting to do a comparison of the two models innards.

      • Unfortunately no, as I don’t think it’s good value for money. But yeah, would have been handy to find out what the module is like. Someone will tear down theirs I’m sure.

      Given that the DS1052 is going for around £150 on eBay (used) and you could probably get £200 for a used DS1102 this is looking very attractive. Especially given some of the unofficial “upgrades” that are available… you’re looking at a 4 channel upgrade (plus the bigger screen and so on) for under 100 quid which is insane.

      • Yeah, no contest. With the extra memory and intensity graded and bigger display it’s a no-brainer.

        I guess the market will drop out for second hand DS1052, meaning they’ll get even cheaper. That sucks if you’ve just bought one, but if you’re a hobbyist teetering on the brink of buying a scope on a tight budget, then maybe a chance find on ebay could be the thing. The DS1052 hasn’t gotten any worse in terms of functionality. Look forward to the review of the 1054.

      So now that you’ve taken it apart can you turn it on and do a review?

        I second that. I would love a review. My DS1052 is getting a little old and this might be the perfect upgrade.

        BTW Rigol should really give you a percentage of every sale, I know that’s why I bought one.

      Excessive unnecessary fan noise continues to be an issue (in
      my opinion) with Rigol equipment (not just oscilloscopes).
