Congratulations, BravoV!

It would be nice if the winner would post some pics of them using the new scope!
Sure, will do once I have the chance at home with the scope arrived here.

Looking forward to it. Didn't get a chance to see your lab, yet.

@YU2: Um... don't do that.

Prices in my country are sky high even for old ones, if I order one from abroad the state would on taxes rip me off so buying one is currently above my budget. I always wanted to have one, cant believe I scored the lowest. Now my life has become meaningless  |O

Instead of banging your head on the wall (or worse  :scared:), I would suggest getting one of the (very) low cost USB 8 bit logic analysers off ebay. With one of these, in combination with your existing analogue scope you should be able to make good progress with digital projects.

Also remember that it was the scope that arbitrarily scored you lowest, not a person.

Which means you wouldn't want that scope anyway. It picked a different master.

Would you please explain how could I get one scope for free like RIGOL 1104Z??

Hi Everyone.

I have recently gotten a new oscilloscope for my hobby lab. This leaves me with my old one as surplus.
I could be greedy and leave it on my bench "just in case I need 8 channels of scoping one day" but that seems wasteful when someone else could be making use of it.

The scope I'm giving away is a Rigol DS1104Z-S. It is the 100MHz bandwidth version. It has not been hacked and has the built in signal gen and also Serial decoding option. It has 4 probes with it.
It is in perfect working order. I have really enjoyed using it and used it to complete many projects and repairs.

So, if you are still reading and want this scope, then read the conditions below.

  • I will pay postage up to $50 NZD. Anything beyond that is on you. I am located in New Zealand.
  • I won't be responsible for any customs fees. I'll declare the value as $150
  • Offer is not open to citizens of rich first world countries. I feel that there are enough opportunities in those countries for people to make a good life compared to some poorer countries.
  • If you want the Scope, you have one week from this post date to write a single post reply explaining why you should get it. Pics of your lab or projects will be helpful!
  • If others want to give their 5c on what person deserves it the most, I welcome that.
  • I reserve the right to make the final choice.

Good luck.

Dave, if this post is in the wrong place, feel free to move it.

Rhys.

[edit] time is up and the scope has been given away. Thanks for those who participated.

Looks like (1) you'll have to visit this forum more often since you missed it by a few days and (2) have good luck with random numbers.

1st, my apology, especially to Rhys for late update. I travel a lot and have to feed the family 1st as electronics is only hobby, hence EEE.  ;D

Looking forward to it. Didn't get a chance to see your lab, yet.

Yep, here you go, part of my bench.



Few comments on below photos :

Unpacking, had to take few shots as an appreciation to Rhys, it was wrapped in tons the bubbles wrap.  :-+

The scope, have to say cosmetically is almost like new, can't find any serious scratches, heck, even the bnc's nickel plating are still so shiny. Just look at the power up counts.  :o

Time head to riglol's stuff.  >:D

Yes, I will make contribution back to this forum, just wait till I post at other thread.

Again, many thanks to Rhys.  :-+
