Upgrading Rigol MSO5000 Series LCD (Thoughts?)
« on: April 21, 2019, 09:22:42 pm »
I'm thinking of purchasing the Rigol MSO5000 series - some of the features that I like are the HDMI out, the built in function generator, the internet and app connectivity, the touch screen.


I am generally disappointed in the quality of the screens though, of oscilloscopes in general. I figure if I'm looking at something that costs more than a phone, it should probably look pretty good.

Has any had any experience upgrading the LCD? At the very least I guess it would be the same to use the HDMI out and somehow extend the touchscreen controller inputs so they can be used externally.

What's your opinion of those $500 multimeters with low resolution black&white screens?  :popcorn:

What's wrong with the screen and what do you want to upgrade it to? The display is not really what you're paying for with a scope. You're not going to be watching movies on it.
