Title: Rigol DS2000 on its way to being replaced?
Post by: rramirez on April 29, 2016, 05:43:34 am
The Rigol DS2000 series is starting to be discounted a bit more than it previously was, maybe just because of Siglent pricing moves, IDK. Anyone have any insights or projections as to what Rigol will do with the DS2000 series; maybe release a Z series version?

What Siglent pricing movements?  :-//

Sure the SDS2000X and SDS1000X series are on promotional pricing ATM but that's for a fixed term only.
Options and BW upgrades thrown in at the same pricing but I'm not aware of any other official discounting going on.

Also I do not know any official pricing changes. Only some very limited time promotional offers, exept that quality and after sales customer care is developing continuously average better. Of course this can also think so that the relative price is falling. (if wild sellers do not destroy this)
