Does the forum software have an option for auto-responders? These could monitor all threads, be triggered by certain keywords, and automatically post a response. If users could set these up according to their preferences, it would save some of us a lot of time!  8)

Some suggestions (choose your own trigger words): 

Fungus: "The DS1054Z is just fine!"
nctnico: "Don't forget about GW Instek!"
ebastler: "Guys, please..."

 ;) ;)

At least we're getting it down to half a page now.


ebastler: "Guys, please..."

What's really needed is a way to stop newbies from posting that question in the first place.

An autoresponder which lists the following scopes DS1054Z, SDS1104X-E and GDS-1054B triggered on each of these keywords before someone makes a posting would even be better. Few people research all the available options themselves before posting a question so you'll get a lot of repeated answers.
There are small lies, big lies and then there is what is on the screen of your oscilloscope.

Thanks tv84 -- you have beaten me to writing the exact same thing!  ;)

Alternative explanations: "Voices in my head make me do it!",
or "The Show new replies to your posts list makes me do it!".  8)

I paid $285 shipped for my DS1054Z and it gets near daily use.

I thought you have a micsig scope... If so, what happened to it?

Nope, never owned one of those.

Hell, didn't know my question could be so much irritating to you experts...  :-DD

I will probably end buying the Rigol, I'm also bored of not being able to choose, or getting the "consider the GW Instek". Siglend and Rigol have 1€ difference price on Amazon.it and the purpose of my "first oscilloscope" is to work with induction heating and all the oscillator / mosfets switching thing. 4 channels are useful, since I learned reading from you that triggering with probes switching is a thing for the expert hand, not me.

Do not know if someone has asked this, this is a very long post to read.

How do the FFT compare on both of these machines.

1.6 ns rise times and four channels for under $400? Give me more of that!

Variable bandwidth with vertical sensitivity and signal level is the new must have feature.  Soon all DSOs will have it.
