Noticed an HDMI port on the back just under the 1:00 mark. Still likely to be way out of the hobby ballpark.

Base model is 3 digits, just.
Fully optioned up, you probably don't want to know.
If the base model is hackable they won't be able to make them fast enough.

High sample rate but middle range for bandwidth I'm really not sure what they're going for. 7k is 500MHz, this is 350MHz, next is 200MHz 3k to replace 1054?

It's high sample rate because they can with the new chips. It means at least 5 times over sampling with all channels on.

If hackable I'll take two then.

Well at least 'pulses' is spelled right this time... -ducks and runs-  >:D

Dunno. At prices around $1k the hobby market gets much thinner and I don't see companies wanting to have a hacked oscilloscope. That is IF the firmware works which is something we don't know for the both the MSO5000 and MSO7000. The similary specced Siglent SDS2000X series doesn't seem to be a very big seller either.

it looks like it could be a step up from my old DPO2024.. I'm planning on updating that in the next year or so.  I was assuming I'd probably go for an MSO3k unit, but my  experience when I trying to get a quote on tek's USB VNA a few months ago has me reconsidering tek as the best general option.

the sample rate and waveform capture numbers look pretty amazing, and the basic analysis they showed looks good.. depending on the actual quality of the firmware and the details of the extra features, this is definitely on my list of alternatives to look into. "hackable" or not. (I'm guessing they won't make that mistake with this one!)

@Dave: since you have both the MSO7000 and MSO5000 could you pull some files from them for the noise comparison in this thread: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/oscilloscope-input-noise-comparison/

Forum member maxwell3e10 has created a nice collection of noise levels of various oscilloscopes and having the MSO5000 and MSO7000 added to it would be great (assuming maxwell3e10 is still willing to put in the work to create the graphs).

I would say MSO7 (350/200MHz) Vs MSO5 (350/200) about half price.

I do not like this small font for automatic measurements. This was also on previously released Rigol scopes.

Previously released Rigol scopes have a setting for larger font.

I wonder if Keysight is going to release a competitor for this Rigol. DSOX2000A series will be 8 years old in early 2019.
Amazing machines. https://www.youtube.com/user/denha (It is not me...)

World Exclusive!
A teardown and quick look at the new low cost (ish) Rigol MSO5000 mixed signal oscilloscope, to be release on the 13th Nov.

How does it compare to the 7000 series scope just released 5 months ago?

If the 2ch 70 MHz model can be hacked to a fully optioned 4ch 350 MHz with decoders then it will sell, other then that it's a dog at retail pricing.

I agree, it's a pity he got a so early FW release. Next week the unit will be at the show Electronica in Munich and I will play with it a lot.
In the mean while units are in stock ready for November the 13th

Isn't that the reason why all Rigol scopes were interesting to begin with :box: After all, if you don't look at upgrades then Siglent and other manufacturers are often more competitive.

I'm not sure the numbering scheme makes sense. Feature-price wise this scope seems to follow up the 4000 series. It's too expensive to replace the 2000 series. But then it does cut down on some features that the 4000 series does have (like a 500MHz model), suggesting to me a "3000" series number would have been a better fit.

But perhaps they didn't want to undervalue their current line-up (in terms of marketing psychology), despite the pricing for a 4-ch 200MHz scope looking far more interesting.

Even if the difference on price of the MSO5072 and MSO5074 is small we expect the most requested models will be: MSO5072, MSO5104 and MSO5204.
350MHz BW is not very popular, if needed many move to the 500MHz.
So far I'm very impressed by the sampling rate, can't wait to run some test!

If the 2ch 70 MHz model can be hacked to a fully optioned 4ch 350 MHz with decoders then it will sell, other then that it's a dog at retail pricing.

It's actually quite competitive at the low end compared to the competition, I include a table at the end. Fully loaded though, no, it's poor value.

I'm tempted to agree with that. If you really need 350MHz then you likely really need 350MHz, and you are in the 500M-1GHz class instruments.

And here come the flood of Youtube comments saying this scope isn't even remotely "low cost" at $909, and is in fact way overpriced and un-affordable. From people with $1k iPhones in their pocket no doubt ::)
