i am playing with the idea to buy my first digital oscilloscope (prefer high bandwidth for high frequency analog stuff; but should be < 500 euro). but it looks like i am late to the game: oscilloscopes like Rigol, GWInstek GDS-1202B or SDS1202X-E all seem to be 4 year old designs ?!?

is there some info about upcoming, updated versions of this class of oscilloscopes?

With a little stretch of your budget the 2 GSa/s SDS2202X-E is worthy of consideration. The 1 GSa/s SDS1202X-E was the first in the X-E series but hasn't got a few of the features in later X-E models.
SDS2202X-E is a 350 MHz design so it's not difficult to convince it to become a SDS2352X-E.  ;)

I'm looking into buying a <$400 scope, and this is also my main concern.

There is now the SDS1104X-U, which is from December 2020. It's 100mhz/4channel for $400, which is reasonable.

I want a DS1054Z to upgrade, but it's 7 years old and apparently the UI is sluggish... that doesn't feel great.

Welcome to the forum.

X-U is based on the 4ch X-E design albeit with a few less features however it performs just as well with a responsive UI and the are selling well for us in NZ. For the budget conscious buyers X-U is now more attractive than the bit cheaper SDS1202X-E.

Don't worry about that. These are measurement devices, not fashion smartphones.

No manufacturer would ever release that info.

If you're in the USA then the GW-Instek is the budget oscilloscope to go for right now. It's cheaper than the Rigol and better in many ways, including having the fastest UI out there at the moment.

I am looking at buying a cost-effective scope for home use (I have plenty of scopes at work).

The Rigol scopes we had at my last job were well respected and I bought a Rigol AWG which worked just fine.

So, I'm interested in their currently least expensive scope the DS1102Z-E ($249 USD at the Rigol store on Amazon US, "FREE delivery"). For $249 it's strictly a scope (no AWG available) but does have an ethernet port). The ethernet port is a plus for me because THEORETICALLY it could allow high bandwidth, un-interrupted, streaming/recording of data

There isn't much analysis on the web about the Rigol, say compared to the approx $200 USD Hanntek ?DSOD10? with AWG.

 I think somebody stated that the Rigol DS1102Z-E is a stripped ?DS1104Z?/?DS1054Z?. I'm assuming Rigol created this $249 unit as a teaser to round out the absolute low-end of their product line.

Does anybody have any insight into this unit?

Yes.

In the USA? I'd look at the GW-Instek instead. You can get them very cheap over there:

There's also a thread on here somewhere about a Tequipment discount for EEVBLOG members.

Yes, $249 in the USA.

Thanks for the pointer to the Instek. That link has a $279 price for the Instek, so I think I see why Rigol dropped THEIR price from $279 to $249.

I'll check it out.
