HI Fellow Forum Members,

We are giving away an unopened and unused Siglent SDS1052DL+ for 1 lucky winner. Rules are simple Make me laugh and win ;D. No really its that's simple.

Some points to consider:

- Deadline is 5pm Wednesday 5th of May. Any entry after this time will be excluded.

- Freight is covered by us. I managed to convince the higher ups, your welcome :)

- Winner will be announced on Friday 7th of May on this Thread

- Only 1 entry per person. You can comment more than once but your first entry is the one I will be deciding on.

- Its an unused unit but don't expect it to come with a calibration certificate or any warranty. It is a free unit afterall :)

- Electronics jokes will probably not do you any favors as my background is Biology, yes that's right Biology don't ask why.

- This is for our AU residents only.

- That's it, Good Luck and the best joke wins the prize.

- One last thing Tautech and Dave are excluded, as you both have enough Siglent gear of your own  :-DD

Its been a tough year and we thought it would be a nice gesture to do a small giveaway and also have some fun along the way. There might be more to come in the future shhhh.

The Funny Jokes For Silly Scopes Competition.

Funny?, I’ll give you funny alright.   :rant:
Trying to charge like a million bucks for a Siglent product on the Trio website was just hilarious.   :palm:

Anyway, I wouldn’t even part with one of my knock-knock jokes for a scope with only 32Kpts, even my rusty old TDS-1002 with 2.5K memory is still worth a couple of one liners and perhaps a whimsical pun. If it’s a laugh you want, make it an SDS-1072CML+ with 2Mpts and I might consider doing an entire stand up routine.   :-BROKE



 :) :P

Ah ... somebody actually posted.  I was going to offer the following just before the deadline - but since that has been moved, I'll just throw it in now.....




Knock, knock.

                                                            Who's there?

An Oscilloscope, the kind of endangered species in my ecosystem since I learned basic electronics and circuit reading back in 2005. Didn't practice that much, and when I needed to use one in 2008 I was like a donkey looking at a palace (that's a literally translation from a Joke in Portuguese).

I would participate but I'm not in Australia, Hong Kong would be the closest I would be able to go. Well good luck to all the contenders.

  • ... but this username is also acceptable.
Little traction so far, maybe because most of us already have nice scopes. Well, I have a young friend who is starting out in electronics, and only has a DSO-150, so here's my proxy entry. Hope you don't mind 'em a bit lewd.



A guy is suffering from severe headaches for years with no relief. After trying all the usual cures, he's referred to a renowned headache specialist. The doctor asks him what his symptoms are and he replies, "I get these blinding headaches; kind of like a knife across my scalp and—".

The doctor interrupts, "And a heavy throbbing just behind the left ear?"

"Yes! Exactly! How did you know?"

"Well I am the world's greatest headache specialist, you know. But I myself suffered from that same type of headache for many years. It is caused by a tension in the scalp muscles. This is how I cured it: every day I would give my wife oral sex. When she came, she would squeeze her legs together with all her strength and the pressure would relieve the tension in my head. Try that every day for two weeks and come back and let me know how it goes."

Two weeks go by and the man is back. "Well, how do you feel?" the doctor asks.

"Doc, I'm a new man! I feel great! I haven't had a headache since I started this treatment! I can't thank you enough. And, by the way you have a lovely home."

HI All

Just wanted to say that Sim and the team at IPD/Triotest do a great job and to Sim in particular, as the nucleus of the team, thats all that matters! 
It may at times be a hard cell but if he gets it right its all "Ameoba, Amoeba" 
With some of the jokes here Im sure he is laughing his genes off.

I think at this time, more than ever, everyone needs to chill and have a laugh a the moment so thanks for this Sim.
Bigger things going on in the world than arguments over what brand of test gear we use (although I do like Siglent gear!).

Just updated to the SDS2104X Plus scope and so far have found it to be brilliant but another scope would be nice, at the right price, to keep my son away from my new toy!

Good luck to everyone.

cheers....Allan M

The big day is here people, they are going to draw the winner at some point today I assume. (Inserts excited emoticon)   ;D

It was a somewhat disappointing turnout I must say, perhaps next time they should chuck in a jar of jelly beans as well. I like the black ones personally but they are becoming very hard to find nowadays in a mixed bag.   8)

Regardless of the outcome, a big thanks goes out to Sim at IPD/ Trio Test & Measurement for the generous offer.   :clap: :-+

Hi All,

Time to announce the winner. Would have liked to see more entries but that's ok, this is just the first of hopefully many more to come.

It was a very tough choice between "I wanted a rude username" and "705jas" jokes. I did appreciate the slightly lewd joke but the nucleus joke and the line about laughing my "genes" off tipped it over the finish line for me.

So we have the winner "705jas" congrats to you and glad to see you are also enjoying the brand new SDS2104X-PLUS. I will send you a PM to confirm your address so we can send this scope out to you next week.

Thank you to all that participated  :-+

On another note Muttley, I did laugh a bit at the 1 million dollar price, that was a blunder from our end and I cant believe you still have that photo, even though we fixed it right away  :-DD

Hi All,

Many thanks to Sim and the team at IPD for the SDS1052DL+ scope!  I have never won anything before so this is great  ;D 
A very nice beginner scope that boots quickly and does everything it should.  Very much appreciated and thanks again to Sim, IPD, and Siglent.

cheers...Allan
