Owon SDS7102 or Tektronix TBS1062 or TDS1002

Hi,

I need your opinion about Owon SDS7102 (420$) in comparation with Tektronix TBS1062 or TDS1002 (870$).

The price of tektronix is double but the tech and features seem the some.

In particular I like to known if TBS1062 or TDS1002 offer better performance in terms of noise, accuracy, trigger, precision.

I'am not interested about the functions that they offer that are more then sufficuent for my porpues.

Some people affirm that Owon is chinese machine and never can compare with Tektronix (this indipendently by the model).

I like to use it for hobby, and at beginning my first idea was consider some Old tektronix like 2465, 2445 , but need too many space that I don't have, so only digital oscilloscope I can consider.

If someone have some experience with this model 'SDS7102' and tektronix please share your opinion.

Err, not even close!
The Tek has a pathetic 2.5K sample memory. The Owon has 4000 times more, at 10M.

The Owon is a cheap unit for sure, but the Tek, whilst a top quality unit, is just a such a pathetic joke in todays market, you'd be foolish to buy it. The Tek is based on a 15 year old design.
If they are your only two choices, buy the Owon.

Many thanks for your response !!!

For your opinion there is the possibility to see some video (youtube) comparation about OWON SDS7102 with some Tektronix models (Analog or new Digital) ?

Apart this, I was try to see the best price / quality for 400-460$ and the OWON SDS7102 seem the best in terms of noise, precision and in general performance. Do you agree ?

Wuerstchenhund:
I fully agree with Dave. Tektronix was a good choice and a save buy in the past but nowadays their oscilloscope offerings are behind other manufacturers. They still produce top quality equipment but you dearly pay for that.

Is your choice only limited to these three models? If not, I'd also have a look at the Siglent SDS1102CFL, or if you're prepared to pay a bit more the Rigol DS2102.

luca1000:
I understand that here like other situation with Tektronix you pay the "brand" and you can get similar performance (not identical) with chinese brands with less cost.

Siglent SDS1102CFL and Rigol DS2102 are more then double price (>1000$) , the OWON SDS7102 price is < 500$.

My range is <500$.
