Moreover, in comparison to other oscilloscope manufacturer's offers, the Rigol DS4000 series doesn't appear as attractive anymore as it may have three or four years ago.

I don't know.  Who else offers a 4 channel scope with the DS4000 performance/dual ADC's at a price anywhere close to it even now?  You can run 2 channels at 4 GSa/s or all 4 channels at 2 GSa/s.

Hi,
even if it is an old topic I would like to ask why I could have problems doing the upgarde?
I have a DS4014 with decoder upgrade already done, but I am not abe to do the BW upgrade.
It is using SW version 00.00.04 and HW version 1.2

Thanks for any help

What exactly problem do you have?

I'm about to buy MSO4014 and need to be sure if I can upgrade it or not :)

The latest version of the SW (and the version I have been using for the last ~year with 500MHz option) is 2.3.0.3. This is significantly newer than 0.0.4, maybe they added the option between the two versions?

Hi!

I upgraded my brand new mso4014 just two weeks ago.
Using latest firmware.
And it works beautifully.

So unless they changed something in the last days you're probably fine.

The latest S/W version for the DS4000 series is 2.3.1.1, apparently published in October, 2017.

I don't see 2.3.1.1 on int.rigol.com and the form on int.rigolna.com gives me a zip of 2.3.0.3 when I put in my serial number. Where did you spot it?

I moved my question to :
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/rigol-ds4000-option-and-bandwidth-hack-251434/msg3200358/#msg3200358


The thing I did not know, was that the system info screen will still say it's a MSO4024 after it's been hacked... 😆
