Used Tektronix scopes
« on: May 06, 2014, 07:19:36 pm »
I'm on a bit of a budget and just getting started. I found two older scopes locally, a 2245a and a TDS430a for about $200. I know these are different beasts, but they both work well and are descent looking. For just general learning and mostly digital work would I have any preferences? I one more servicable?

If I understand correctly the TDS series has many unobtainium parts.  The 2245 might be easier to repair if it is necessary.  I hope others chime in on this if I am not correct.

Thanks! I got the 2245. I'll get a digital at the wants/needs crossover point.
