Why would anyone who is not authorized to buy Keysight want to watch?  Those events are marketing and little else.

But don't forget to check the terms of the promotion. Not a lot of countries are contemplated. Australia and New Zealand is 2 of the ones out, plus most of Europe and Asia.


Quote
This promotion is limited to entrants who are legal residents of, and physically located within, Austria, Canada (excluding the Province of Quebec), Chile, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States (excluding Florida, New York, and Rhode Island).


I would love to try my luck but my home country plus the one I'm living now is not on the list.

I've been updating this on Twitter and somewhere on this forum. Two winners from my draw last year just got their scope and function gen a week ago.
Massive component delays, mainly FPGA's and PSU parts. Giveaway scopes would have been lowest shipping priority. But yeah, 12 months delivery  :-[

Ho hum.  Even if I entered and won some test gear, how could I get it calibrated, or have access to spare parts?  I'm not a company, so they'd simply refuse to deal with me, and the Finnish system means it is not feasible for me to set up a company either.  Bah, keep your private parts for yourself.

I welcome any test equipment- old, new, refurbed. Trying to cut down on dumpster diving. I giveaway the least used/older gear to the noobs and they're happy as well.
New Keysight scope? I totally missed that new gear is being released. The front panel has some interesting additions...

Any cal company will calibrate your gear, it doesn't have to be the manufacturer.
Do other scope companies sell spare parts?

New scope  :-DMM


It is funny how they do this charade, when 3000G info is fully published on their web site... And there is no mention of 3000T anymore.. It seems to be in place replacement...

New Keysight scope? I totally missed that new gear is being released. The front panel has some interesting additions...

If you are talking about 3000G it has identical front panel like 3000T. Except black front panel, and color scheme on screen, some type of hystogram, some built in free decodes, and full support for USB2 decoding there are no differences whatsoever compared to 3000T...
It is obviously a hardware revision, but to a user, pretty much same as 3000T. With all the good and bad that brings..

It's not the long awaited Megazoom V  :(
They asked me if I wanted one to review, and I didn't see the point.

Okay, even warranty services then.  Or do they make an exception to their policies for those who win these contests?  :horse:

I'm pretty sure every company has a statuory requirement to repair or replace under warranty. In countries like Australia there are very strict consumer protection laws on this.

Thank you so much KEYSIGHT for this awesome prize!!!  All my gratitude to Daniel (Keysight DanielBogdanoff) and all the Keysight University Live Team.

Because the Chipageddon the giveaway prizes were delayed 1-year, but maybe few people know that Daniel was always writing to winners and sending some cute souvenirs  :-+

I understand how stressful is to organize all that excellent video lectures, interviews, etc and after that, handle this crazy problem.  Again, all my thanks to all of you!!!

This scope will help me a loooot in my current e future projects, many thanks!!!  ;D

Today I see the brand new advertisement for the Keysight FieldFox on eevblog for the first time.
"Low price and in stock"

Clicking on it tells me "sorry out of stock"
Hmm also effected by Chipageddon ?
There are 3 kinds of people in this world, those who can count and those who can not.

I just updated the link an hour ago.
The ad is for the used store.

Hey that's cheating - you're getting up to 5 extra contest entries with your link ID.

But I'm happy Keysight continues to give a little back to the engineering community :)

I'm pretty sure every company has a statuory requirement to repair or replace under warranty. In countries like Australia there are very strict consumer protection laws on this.
Actually in Germany, and likely many parts of the EU in general, a manufacturer warranty (german term: "Herstellergarantie" often shorted to just "Garantie") is really totally optional.

What is mandatory for business to customer sales is the german term "Gewaehrleistung", which is like warranty, but not :D
For two years after the sale, the seller, not the manufacturer is responsible that the device has no defects. In the first year, the seller would have to prove that the defect is not an inherent defect (only such inherent defects are covered), after that the customer has to prove that.

But this is only mandatory in business to costumer sales. Business to Business sales can make different contracts, and do not need to include any kind of customer protection. That is one, if not even the biggest, reasons why many professional stores do not sell to individuals anymore.

For prize drawings like this, no "Gewaehrleistung" needs to be given. So no: I would not count on any kind of service from Keysight. Especially with everything i hear here in the forums how they are treating private customers.

There is no gain for me. I'm from Romania, so i don't get anything from those contests.  :)

You really think they don't have to give warranty?? That is naive.. Keysight is legendary for their warranty service, so is Fluke...
They give warranty alright...

It is not warranty that is problematic, but consumer rule that you can buy it open it open it and use and then give it back within certain period of time without explanation.. That resulted in people "buying" very expensive scope to troubleshoot a problem for a week or two and getting it back and reclaiming money.. Which leaves manufacturer with product that is now open box and that cannot be sold as new anymore...

Well, Keysight famously did not honor warranties for non-company buyers right here in the forum.
There are various reports of that.

What you mention is the "Fernabsatzgesetz", the ability to unconditionally return goods that were bought online for 14 days.
But like "Gewaehrleistung", this a thing between the seller and the buyer, the manufacturer is not involved with this at all.

And once 14 days are over, refunding is not possible anymore, except of course if the merchant has a longer refund period. So that would not be a reason *at all* to not honor any warranties of non-company customers.
