Hello,

Simple question, Rigol or BK Precision oscilloscope at least 200 MHz and 4 analog channels?

Thanks.

Since they just only come out. No one could answer that to you at this time.

24kpts... what were they thinking???

I have no experience with either... but on features alone, I'd say the Rigol DS2000 series is an order of magnitude better than the BK2550 series, as far as I can tell , being an outside observer watching videos and reading specs.

I put pictures proving the origin of BK Precision scopes. They are produced by Tonhgui or by Siglent.

Still better than TDS3000 with 10kpoints/channel. OK, it's a scope from year 1998, or so.  :palm:

Depends on features and how it compares to equivalent other brands/models in terms of price.

If I'm considering Tek or Agilent I would definitely go for Agilent for better prices for same or better features.

No eBay or second hand stuff. Period.

Budget is 0 - ~= $5000.  If I can get something for free, demo version that would be awesome.  :-DD

If Agilient is one of your target than you might want to rethink your position on ebay. Because Agilient has its own store there with resonable prices.

I found this one:

http://www.rigolna.com/products/digital-oscilloscopes/ds1000b/ds1204b/

Looks better than some low-end Tek's

Any body tried this model before?

Thanks.

OK, still better than Tektronix TDS2000.  :--

Definitely check out the AgilentUsed store on eBay. VERY good deals there and they will usually accept offers at much lower. You can even talk them down a bit on some addons and accessories.
