I don't see anything interesting here, it's very rare that I need to use all four channels on my scope, I've never needed more than that on a scope. Clearly I'm not the market this is aimed at though, a lower cost iteration of the older TDS3000 with some modern features like protocol decoding would be a lot more appealing. I like the compact form factor of those.

So guessing from the nomenclature, the scopes are bandwidth software upgradeable. Will keep some folks on this forum busy  >:D

The no doubt high-ish base price will keep a majority of potential hackers away
Brick a $400 Rigol and it's not a huge loss. Brick a $3k scope and it's a sad day

But the possible gains...............

Maybe you missed this, playing with a $ 3.5k scope:

Yep, "no pain, no gain".

And the playing was done using a "real" Siglent SDS5104X which costs a "little" more than $3.5k...

So playing with a 200MHz Tek to be able to reach a 1.5GHz Tek also sounds very interesting.

Looks like I got this one wrong! although there may still be a 4 Series MSO.

There is a new 3 Series MDO (Mixed domain). Separate digital channels.
May not use any of the new 5 series ASIC tech? Perhaps just a GUI revamp to bring the old MDO up to snuff with the new "Series" look?

Interesting, before I posted the MDO44/46 list I also looked for something like MDO34/36 but couldn't find anything

That latest find is an MDO, they stated the new one is an MSO, so I would stick with the original theory.

The spectrum analyser input is a dead giveaway that it is an MDO3000. Hopefully they have improved this design and not just put the old one in a new case ;)

It's now obvious they are using plural "Scopes", so more than one.

That should be evident once you start to use it in terms of performance.

Is it a race to see who can have the controls with the least contrast?

Low contrast light gray on lighter gray seems to be the "in" thing in recent years. Annoys the hell out of me too.

Dave, I don't think you got it wrong. I think they are releasing a 3 and a 4 series. Look at the video. The one clearly shows the ability to change the palette on 6 channels and the 3 series is only 4 channels.  Did you see post by simmone? PS. I think this scope looks great! I don't mind the low contrast as it doesn't have many buttons due to the touchscreen and gives it a nice clean look.  I just wish Tek would stop giving a middle finger to the hobbyist market and make something under $2k that we would be proud to have on our benches.

FWIW in regards to that price on the 1 GHz unit - that looks like pricing for a "demo" model that accidentally made it onto their website. Demo models are fully loaded with every option, highest BW, etc. and are only sold to distributors (or used my us directly) to use for demonstrations to customers. Should never be available to purchase by an end user. Super odd pricing though, being $860 more than the 1 GHz base unit. I'll have to think more about where that price might have came from. Keysight uses a 9 month time based "demo" license on these units so they can eventually be sold stock and optioned up after the've been on demo duty, but that demo license comes at no cost.

First pic of the new 4 series MSO
Uses the new Flexprobe interface, so you have to sacrifice analog channels for digital.
Not so on the new Series 3 MDO, that has a separate digital input and older probe interface.
