Saelig. One day short of two months wait.

I wonder if they received a batch and have any left in stock.   I have been thinking about ordering one one, but I do not want to have an order hanging.   I asked for the forum discount code days back, but no one sent me a PM.

2104X+ on order from Welectron. They have stock and were able to deliver at a price lower than I could find in the U.S. No stock here for a while it seems . Should have this in few days. If I can just get TV to share the "update"...

BTW my 1202X+ is for sale if anyone is interested.

Hi,

This is what I´ve found out by welectron:

https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/siglent-sds2000x-plus-coming/msg2942394/#msg2942394

Total 7% off, maybe he got a special offer apart from this.

Don't forget the custom, it is a pretty good odd that custom will send you a duty bill for importing the scope. 

Warranty coverage is another item to consider, I am not sure how SIGLENT NA handles warranty, but many brands do not warrant “grey market” purchases - as in any purchase outside its regional dealer network.  Cameras is a great example, none of the big brands provide warranty for grey market goods that are often sold at a discount.

Just something to consider before buying overseas.

I sent them an email asking for best price delivered to my address in the U.S. They beat the Saelig price including EEVBlog discount by a good dinner. Should have it at the end of the week. Very responsive.

Should of said dinner for two. If I pay duty it’s dinner for one. After contacting Siglent US it was apparent that Delivery times were uncertain. Not worried about service as I’m hoping TV will help me improve it....

What price did you get? Because my order with Saelig for the SDS2104X Plus is total of $1,436.70 (including 9% CA tax) which is about 1,321.83 Euro (although I am sure your CC will give you a worse exchange rate).

Oh well, looks like my GAS got the better of me. Sitting on the fence between the MSO5074 and this one was getting uncomfortable. I ordered one from Welectron today.

You bought a Rigol, a Keysight and now a Siglent in the past few days ?
I found worse than me  :-DD

Finally got my SDS2104X Plus and make it a SDS2504X Plus.  ;)

Enable telnet: create a file named as 'siglent_device_startup.sh', content 'telnetd'.
telnet user name 'root'
password 'siglent_sds1000x_e'  (why not SDS2000X Plus?)
mount -o remount,rw,sync /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0
rm /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0/bandwidth.txt

Hello miyagi, many thanks for sharing your result and congratulations to enjoying good tool. Your scope show now SDS2504X Plus, while other methods result in SDS2354X Plus. Please do you have a possibility to measure your scope fastest rise time, and/or the frequency response?

Some owner share 650ps to be reached with SDS2354X Plus and Leo's pulse generator, or 600 to 650MHz -3dB bandwidth. Of course, with only one channel active of the pairs 1+2 and 3+4.

Would be interesting to know, whether there is still headroom in above values.

Once again, many thanks

Forgot to mention, with 600MHz bandwidth we are already close to the limit of 2GHz sample rate

Sorry if it is a dumb question... where do you put the siglent_device_startup.sh file?
And I suggest changing the rm command for mv: mv /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0/bandwidth.txt /usr/bin/siglent/firmdata0/bandwidth.txt.bak to keep a copy just in case

Let us know if you receive a custom duties bill from the courier before delivery.  Item is Made in China and it should be subject to tariff, regardless of where it is coming from and the daily allowance is only $800...

Well, yes, that's without VAT of course, and before import tax and duties.

There is not.  The HW is the same, whether you call it 2354X++ or 2504X+.

Wow. That’s an amazing deal. I don’t see them having it in stock for long at this price 😆

I will let everyone know the final cost with duties. I used Paypal to pay.  In the past Ive gotten a bill some weeks after taking delivery of items I have purchased like this.

Looking for step/step upgrade plan. Ive upgraded my SDG AWG using a password free telnet but Miyagi's instructions are a little cryptic. Hoping someone writes a little guide. This community is awesome. Im in awe of the work many (like TV84) have done to "enhance" these products. Its like the folks who crack the ECU's on cars and provide performance boosts. The automotive manufactures are very concerned about Information Assurance (Cyber Security) and make it very, very hard but there are those that do it. Amazing. Thank you.

This is the normal price in EU without VAT.

TK hopefully you can sort out the specifics on he upgrade. You asked one of my first questions: where does the file go? On a USB drive in the external port? Hopefully someone will develop a step/step guide soon.

I feel like you know who is going to have a lot of work in the coming days  :palm:

Can we not all subscribe to offer him a test equipment or whatever he want/need ?
