Siglent SDS2K+ Vs. Rigol MSO5000 - The Features
« on: August 16, 2020, 06:45:31 pm »
Hi at all,

This thread should be not a better/worser/ how long is your dick thing, it only compares the features the two scopes got, with focus of the software-features.
So rigol could equalize it by adding the missing feature in a future firmware and of course also siglent.
That´s the main intention of the thread, hoping rigol and siglent take notice about it.....

I´ve started with the trigger/decode/math functionality, more to come in the next days.
Suggestions/corrections are highly welcome.
Pics will be uploaded as thumbnail as the software is still sucking.

Martin

Interesting idea. What about the AWG? It seems Rigol has a couple of interesting features the Siglent miss. From the Rigol data sheet:
  • Advanced modulation, sweep, and burst signal output supported

Will also come - I try to catch all features which could be realized in software upgrades.
The AWG thing should be "no problem", except the 2nd channel of course.
FFT, the rigol got 1Mpts, the siglent 2Mpts - Don´t know if it´s hardware and couldn´t be changed, but will list it.
And so on...

My needs for a scope fall JUST OUTSIDE of Fisher Price My First Oscilloscope territory... so... obscure features aside, just hand in hand, which do you think is the better buy as is and hacked?

Hi,

My Intention here was to keep this thread free from questions like this, as it only should show the differences between the both in a neutral way.
You could start a topic like "which should I buy?" and in there, I´ll answer my opinion as I got them BOTH, former the rigol for more than a year, actually the siglent.

Don't go off Martin's tables as there's some errors which I've already given him the heads up on via PM however he hasn't come back to correct them yet.

The reason for it is simple:
You don´t tell me the "errors" so far.. ;)

The tables are the results of comparing the specsheets.
If there are errors in my tables, then there are errors in the specsheets and should be corrected.
