What's this worth? Rigol DS1054 - Never used
« on: June 04, 2024, 10:26:11 am »
Rigol DS1054

Bought it ages ago, been sitting in bubble wrap in my garage ever since. Never used or plugged in.
What's it worth?
Inner west of Sydney, Australia.

Thank you.

Given that the DHO804 is about $400-500, I think something like $250 would probably be fair.

I'd say 350-400 Aussie bucks if you want to sell quickly, 450-500 if you don't mind waiting.

Yeah I had a look around and can't find them for less than 700AUD
So considering this one hasn't been used I guess 450-500AUD is on the mark of what I can reasonably ask.

Thanks

The main issue is we just got a round of substantially updated entry level scopes from Siglent and Rigol in the last year.

If you sold that 9 year old model this time last year you would probably get a lot more for it.

Even though you can still find them new, considering the, for example, DHO 8000 series scopes are similarly priced, it would be pretty silly not going with the new ones. They are a lot better in man ways.
 
That said, yours is a good scope, just not worth the retail price. 4 channels is handy.

You also need to consider the lack of warranty that a new scope has.

They now include the software options factory enabled, as well as the warranty and factory calibration which is basically insurance. As they are about $600 AUD new (on special) and similar imported, $500 AUD seems a bit high. I'd pay about $400 max if I really needed one about $300 to get my money back on it. To beginners though $500 might seem a bargain as they aren't aware the model is becoming outdated or understand that Chinese scopes don't necessarily age that well.

Before I buy a scope I'd want to know it's ownership history, see it's uptime, firmware, options enabled, pass self test and self cal, runs all channels on a test signal as well as ensuring all the controls work. This sounds a lot of work, but with a malfunction or power supply fault it's max $100-$150 AUD in parts (and that's depending if you need something off it).

So if you want top dollar to get all buyers interested those are some tips on what you can do to add a little confidence. As you have only been on the forums 6 days and posted a dozen or so times, if you intend to sell it over the forums with virtually no information, it rings some alarm bells.

Yeah that's fair.
Appreciate the advice. If it doesn't move on eBay or here I'll probably follow your advice.
Cheers
