Lay it on me. Questions, comments, angry venting, etc. :)

-Daniel

Edits & FAQs:

1. "Why isn't country XYZ included?" - I really wish we could include every country on the planet, but in order to comply with local laws & regulations we simply cannot. We work with our legal team to make sure we include as many countries as possible while remaining compliant.

2. Unlike cyber week, you do NOT have to be affiliated with a company.

Can anyone tell me why INDIA was included in 2016 scope month but not in 2017 ,i was trying my luck this year untill i saw the country list terms and condition  :-[ |O
i know law issues and stuff bt shouldnt it also be  a part of 2017 like in 2017 

link to 2016 scope month terms and condition :-- http://www.keysight.com/upload/cmc_upload/All/Rules-Scope-Month-Giveaway-Jan26-2016.pdf

It seems like you somehow found a draft of the T&Cs from last year, because this was the official set of rules (found via Google search :) ) http://www.keysight.com/upload/cmc_upload/All/Rules-Scope-Month-Giveaway-Feb1-2016.pdf

I took some time exploring this because we were a bit confused at the comment & link, India was not included last year, either.

After entering every day last year and most days this year I almost didn't bother today, but what do you know - I think I won the last one. Just got an email saying I won a DSOX1102G. Awesome - thanks Keysight. :-)

Daniel,
 
is there an official list of the winners 2017?

Or do I have to watch all daily youtube videos?

Will the winners be informed by e-mail?

Wow, nice! I was just going to ask if anyone here won. I entered every day and didn't win but that's expected, I never win anything anywhere. Not that I really need another scope.

Who said anything about needing another scope. Is there such a thing as too many scopes? :-DD

Why  isn't May Tektronix oscilloscope month ?

   If three 100  Ohm resistors are connected in parallel, and in series with a 200 Ohm resistor, how many resistors do you have?

The thread was started by Keysight, but I guess since the subject line doesn't specify the manufacturer, all scope months are fair game. ;D

FYI, there will be a text list of all winners once all winners have been finalized, and all winners will receive an e-mail with info if they haven't already. In the next couple weeks there will be an offline re-draw for any winners that were ineligible or choose not to accept, and those winners will be contacted via e-mail but not announced on YouTube.

Thanks for a great month, I'll be back online on Monday!

I still want to buy one of the 1000x scopes for my basic needs and portable troubleshooting in the field. Lots of bang for the buck and I can use it for the more risky jobs.

Scopemonth is over and now anyone who knew about it will consider buying him/herself a scope. It was a good idea to bring 1000 series into market, but it would be a great idea to hit Rigol market share harder. Not that I'm market competition fan.. Well, maybe I am ;) but budget level is challenging and probably Keysight did a great job in pushing budget scopes sales mostly for their competitors.
Cheers, Marcin

It is getting closer, but I wouldn't be holding my breath just yet.....

The scopes should ship directly from the factory to the winners within 6 weeks from 31-Mar. It's much, much easier to deal with fulfillment all at once. But, if you have something going on and just can't wait to get your scope, it's potentially possible to get some out the door earlier. To make that happen, talk to the individual that contacts you with the winner info & forms.

The re-draw hasn't happened yet, and won't happen until we get paperwork from the original winners. I'll try to remember to post here once that happens.

... and, once shipped, they still have to find their way to the recipients.  It could still be mid-May before they turn up.

Perhaps the scopes might not have arrived yet - but I think that list of winners can't be too far off.

Redraws haven't been drawn yet, we're trying to make that internal tracking stuff as easy as possible. Scopes are shipping out today! We're checking with the Malaysia team about how long shipping will take, and if you won and got us your paperwork back you should get an e-mail from us in the next 48 hours with details.

For the re-draw, we want to make sure we know how many people are rejecting the prize so we can do the redraw stuff in one batch.

I have not been asked to fill any paperwork out, is this required for Canada?
