Keysight 34470A - Free
« on: August 04, 2015, 01:13:31 am »
I am not a lucky guy so I did not even remember entering Keysight's Dream Bench Sweepstakes.  Last week I got an email saying I was this month's lucky winner and my prize was a 34470A! :D  I have attached some porn, I don't post much so hopefully the attachments are there. 

Playing around with it right now.  Some things to note in comparison to Dave's review of a few years ago:

You can now display dual scales on the meter.
It has capacitance
The bar graph is still wank, but I have not read the manual.

This thing is going to be a lot of fun!  That is the only reason I play around with electronics, because I enjoy it.  I never cared much for the name Keysight, but now I'm thinking I will change my name to KeysightFanBoy!

Should also mention that I got a nice set of leads (in the picture,) USB cable and a copy of BenchVue.  I don't think any of those things come standard with the meter.

Very cool, but it appears you need to trade it in for a Rigol!

For what I paid for it, the Keysight is the clear bang for buck winner.  I'm a hobbyist so that is way there is a lot of Rigol kit on my bench.  It is all stock too.  >:D
