They only asked 100 people? If that number is accurate, this will be fun to watch.
Any circuit design must contain at least one part which is obsolete, two parts which are unobtainable, and three parts which are still under development.

Well, that would be 100 more people than they asked when they designed their last generation of oscilloscopes  :-DD

I took a second look, and I misquoted them. Correction: 100s (hundreds)

I was a huge fan of Tektronix when they had the 2200 series. I even had a giant poster of one on my bedroom wall. Yes I'm a nerd!
I was so sad of the state of their offerings after the year 2000. They seem to be really trying to make some good products now with the release of the 5 series and now this. Before they were just selling overpriced junk profiting off their name. I'm not a hater. I rooting for them to reestablish credibility with their brand.

LOL, who?
They could have asked on, I don't know, maybe the leading test equipment user forum on the internet perhaps, just say'n...

So they have the new 5 and 6 series, so obviously it's going to be lower end. Maybe the 3 or 4 series?
Will it be a Mixed Domain MDO replacement? or maybe the 2000 series?
They have to drop something, I can't see them slotting in another series in there among the existing ones.

I'm still rockin' my free TDS210 (with an added math module), a fully restored 2235 and I have a 212 mini scope to restore for fun.

Between the TDS210 and the 2235, I'm having trouble justifying a new Rigol etc. I only occasionally bump against the limits of the TSD210. I should start doing some more ambitious projects to justify a scope upgrade. :D

Could be something to compete with the Siglent/Rigol/Keysight 1000 series stuff maybe?

I'm having enough fun as it is with my first 7000 series mainframe (7904A). It was probably cheaper too...  :-DD

They could send some samples to a few select YouTubers that review products from time to time, eh Dave😜

I'd be a bit surprised if it's a bottom end scope.

It's 6 channel, possibly 12 bit converter, certainly not low end.

Dave, from that screenshot it looks like 8 channels. They have 8 channels listed on the color palette choices.

??? What do you think

Oh, I just saw the channel numbers down the bottom.
So it's 6 or 8 channels, yet they say "for any budget", so it's got to be less than the 5 Series.

My concern is that like the 5 Series, their own marketing is "You said you wanted more, so we delivered more", in that they just add more stuff without potentially taking into account what a lot of user want which is "more value for money", and not just "more features".

The MSO2000 series is currently 20% off:

Well that wasn't hard to find, as predicted it's called the 4 Series scope:
https://www.tek.com/oscilloscope/4-series-mso-mixed-signal-oscilloscope

Not hard to find when you just take the 5 series URL and then decrement the number and 1/2/3 give 404's and 4 gives a login  ;D

Code: [Select]

I guess I will have to take one for the team, my shelving is adjustable, I suppose if I really have to review one I could make that sacrifice.

At every fair i've been on since the launch of the 5 series i've been bitching that they need to throw away everything they have -starting from the TPS- and replace them with a new scope using ONE or TWO of their new asics.
One asic has 4 ADCs inside and exposes 4 ADC inputs. For god's sake get a clue and do what every single competitor is doing, accessible scopes for the engineers of the future and small businesses

every time i was told to wait and see in the next six month *wink wink*
let's see.

Yeah, a stripped down single ASIC smaller fixed 4 channel job with killer free protocol decoding and basic digital logic would do the trick.

I'd be surprised if the lowest end model 4 Series is under $2k

There seem to be massive clearance on the MDO4k

https://www.sjelectronics.co.uk/tektronix-encore-mdo4k-promotion

50-60% off!

The sale price for the MDO4104C is LESS than they offered me as Trade-up cost for my MDO4054-6  to a MDO4104C-6....
