I'm pretty sure Dave can sort the wheat from the chaff on this one. The number of videos is starting to pile up, almost looks like it might not be a bad idea to pick a top 3 group to make a follow up video to make their case a little better. Community voting perhaps? Feed us to the wolves! :>

More than I thought actually.
People usually don't bother going to the effort.

It’s just a new YouTube account no subs, no content, probably for the specific purpose.
Probably has an entry :D
Until they read this, or other’s delete his comments, there’s probably one video without a comment from him :D

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!
Huh, that's a nice billt o pay for something that is offered to you.

It's not a new scope, so I think you wont be paying that amount, and if it is a personal shipment (Dave to you) you'll be paying only VAT (plus clearance fee to your importer). Ask around and coordinate with Dave and you shouldn't pay more than several hundred euros, if you end up paying.

The law may vary from country to country, but I think it doesn't matter if it's new or used. The scope is not a purchase, it is an income, and for any kind of income, one must pay taxes. Of course, being a used scope it can be evaluated much lower than its catalog price, but it can not have zero value, unless we play in the grey area.

In some places, this is even worst. This kind of win will be considered a lottery type income. For a lottery win, the tax is even higher, usually somewhere between 25%-40% instead of the 16% used in that best case scenario calculation. Anyway, the taxes vary widely across the world, and I'm not a bookkeeper, so I might be totally wrong.

Before taxes, one need to win in the first place, so good luck to everyone!

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?

Yes, I don't care what country you are from. But you will be responsible for any import fees etc.
But of course as it's a used unit, out of a dumpster, the declared value would be a lot lower than the price of new unit  ;)

They can only be made / developed with the help of 100k+ Keysight scopes.  ;D

And yes: what happened to the revolutionary water heater?

But what if Dave puts the value down as very low? He doesn't have to tell its real value. It could be a broken piece of equipment. It could be a cheap piece of equipment. Dave just needs to write its value down as low...

Some countries don't care about that, they see it's effectively new and will base it on the retail price.

I thought it was about time I joined in on the forum and this was a good push.

Oh well. I think it's very sad that we have big brothers watching out for everything we do and RECEIVE. They want a piece of your life, your money and everything. We are basically still slaves to this system.. Sad to see how things are. I wish people were truly free.

quote post counts

Alexander.

I don't think it's a fair judgement of your interest in the community by measuring how often you post here. For example I've been watching the channel for seven years now and only joined for this giveaway  even though there's been lots of them in the past including oscilloscopes. Also considering the fact you have to make a video which really exposes you and may not be high on the priority list for a large number of people, then good on those who pluck up the courage and do it :) The comment about how ".. this is the biggest bunch of woman repellent videos she had ever seen ..." might demonstrate why people are afraid to put themselves out there.

:)

Yours was dug out of a garbage can though (as long as that's not just a backstory) So I don't see how anyone could rationally call that new. Then again this is the government we're talking about.
