which scope is wothy?
« on: May 25, 2011, 04:17:58 pm »
see following two scopes

Rigol DS1052E
http://www.dealexcel.com/rigol-ds1052e-50mhz-band-widths-2channel-digital-oscilloscope_p363.html

UNI-T utd2052ECL
http://www.dealexcel.com/unitrend-utd2052cel-digital-storage-oscilloscope-bright-full-colour-lcd-2-channels_p3711.html

from what I see UNI-T has large display but low memory depth comparing to rigol but its cheap

shipping is $15 for both

what is your opinion?

Rigol DS1052E
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

Yep. Rigol wins hands down.
One can never have enough oscilloscopes.

Does anyone else find it funny that his name is tekfan and he is endorsing Rigol.

However I agree, having the choose between either of the two, the winner would be Rigol.

 I don't even like DSOs but I would also say Rigol.

If you ever have cause to look for low frequency noise,like hum,on a high frequency signal,you will appreciate
larger memory depth.
DSOs without much memory depth lower their sampling rates as time/div is increased,with resultant aliasing
problems.

A classic,standard test at TV stations was to look for hum,clamping error,etc on an analog video signal.
Even the early (1990s) DSOs from such illustrious firms as HP & Tektronix failed this test.

I don't have a Rigol,but from what I've read on this forum,it would pass.
If all you will ever do is look at signals at or around their period,maybe the UN-T would de adequate,but you may
find your requirements change.
Or, you could buy a secondhand Tektronix analog Oscilloscope,unless you really need all the DSOs "bells & whistles".

I dont like to buy a secondhand one coz they are used and has more chance of breaking down  :-\

Actually, most electronic devices are more likely to fail in the first few hours of operation than for some considerable time after that.

As long as it's properly engineered I don't care what brand it is.
The second thing is that memory depth is really useful, not only bandwidth and sample rate.
