Title: OWON SDS1102 low end 100Mhz oscilloscope
Post by: testluck02 on November 23, 2017, 06:46:31 am
Here is a video for OWON new 100Mhz low end oscilloscope, quite idea one for engineers with limited budget.

Yes, it is cheap. No other advantage. All knobs have the same size, that is weird.

Have they really given it the same model number as an existing Siglent product?   :palm:

Because why not. It's not as if there's an infinite amount of product numbers.

Sure, but when you do a search, even with Owon on the front, you get swamped with hits for the exisiting Siglent product. Not a great marketing decision for a newly introduced product.

I was being sarcastic, as there almost litterally are an infinite amount of product numbers.  ;D It might be deliberate, to ride the coattails of their competitor perhaps? That way you turn up when someone looks for the cheapest Siglent he can find. That might catch out a few.

I couldn't even find it on the Owon website.  Not quite sure how Scargill managed to buy one.  I just wanted to find the price out of curiosity.  Most manufacturers use similar encoding of the number of channels and bandwidth.

I bought at this local shop before. Maybe not local for you, but price indication

I though this was an older model though?

Thanks.  I'd have thought it was a new model from its absence on the Owon site and the difficulty finding it at the big US sellers.  I'll be interested to see a tear down and detailed review.

My personal recommendation is to stay away from Owon. Almost no future updates, poor build quality, pretty bad UI, slow waveform updates, non-competetive pricing (in comparison with new Siglent and Rigol entry level scopes) and many other issues.

Any more user experiences on these series of scopes?

Going by the youtube video it looks like an actual (simple but) usable tool.
Spanning the price gap between used crt/bottom end usb scopes and the more popular rigols/siglents, it could be worth considering?

I think Owon EDS202E is much better deal that is ~$250 on Amazon and seems to be a rebranded SDS7102.  EDS has 1M storage per channel.
