Oscilloscope Recommendations - Affordable yet repairable?

(1/21) > >>

ChrisThePackRat:
Hello all,

I'm looking for a replacement oscilloscope since I had to flog my last one. It was an old cost-cut version of a Telequipment but the documentation and the boards were completely different so I was out without a paddle regards repair and maintenance.

So I'm looking for something better documented and more open to repairability, but in an affordable range. I'm not looking for all bells and whistles, something with your standard controls would suffice for my purposes.

Any informed recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Just buy one that's reliable - no repairs needed!

But that's not specifically what I'm looking for in this post.

OK, but what does "affordable" mean in that post?

The Tektronix TAS 485 is maybe the most repairable old 'scope but a decent one will cost you as much as a brand new DSO.

Basic stuff like number of channels and bandwidth would be good to know as well...

And a budget! But then again, spending over 30 euro/dollar/pounds on an analog scope is a waste of money. Aliexpress is filled with small DSOs that cost very little and do a much better job compared to any old analog clunker scope.
