That rise time :(
1 microseconds compared to say a Fluke 271 with a rise time of 22 nanoseconds. It'll meet my needs though. Well or it'll drive me nuts.
Look again, 3.9 ns. DSO measurement agrees with datasheet spec.

Before I got into this game I thought my old Philips FG was the bees knees  :-DD and now I've had a good play with most of Siglent's units and for an off the shelf unit that you don't want to hack the SDG1032X is becoming my favourite.
Sure, there are higher spec units available from A brand manufacturers but for what price ?  :scared:

For sure. $250 ish vs $1,700. I definitely don't have any issue for a unit that costs that much.
