    Really nice scope! did anyone hacked it? 😛 😛 😛

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars pa4tim says:

    wrong knob

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Urgon says:

    Can touch function be disabled? With my eyesight I might accidentally touch the screen with my nose. Also I like that those grid marks on side and bottom. And all black makes it easier for me to read the button and knob markings. If I only could afford it…
    EDIT: Literally 3 seconds after writing that comment I noticed "Touch Lock" button on the panel…

    Sometimes we don't have time

    Rigol need to start sending me stuff to review… I’ve never reviewed a Rigol device, done plenty of Siglent stuff… cough cough 😉🤓

    Nice bitcoin counter

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Name Redacted says:

    I will make it REALLY simple for all scope manufacturers: I do NOT give a crap about anyone's scope, until all oscilloscopes start getting DIFFERENTIAL AND SEPARATELY FLOATING input channels. And I just mean to broke the MORONIC hard link to EARTH CHASSIS. All I need it to float by is a maximum of ~40-50V. This is trivial to accomplish. As trivial as making all inputs fully differential (and thereby also ALL scope probes, including basic passive ones will also automatically become differential probes).

    SOLD!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeremy Cyclist says:

    Has this scope bode plot option?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars bumelant says:

    Seems like MacGyver project joined to your unfinished projects, like Sinclair EV, Raspberry PI cluster and so on. That's sad.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Martin P says:

    omg

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Frogz says:

    1024 by 800……. that isnt even 720p, i am insulted you called it HD

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Sage says:

    Three large for a scope with Rigol's newest and shiniest chipset…and it runs Nougat? My phone is a potato and it runs Oreo.

    Just sayin'.

    "What wankery is going on here"
    Quite a way with words lol

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fremeaner says:

    unless there's a decimal point in the middle of that price…

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nathan Hand says:

    Classic RIGOL, affordable hardware and buggy software.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Demef says:

    Good lord is that thing UGLY! Who designed it, Microsoft?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gweilo8888 says:

    Calibrated the day before they sent it to you is a pretty good indicator that they're cherry-picking the best-performant unit that they could find on the production line.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ThatGuy Makes Things says:

    It's always great to see them improving their hardware and software, but I don't think this scope is really worth it unless you have a really niche application.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Padmanabha Prasanna Simha says:

    This is a beautiful scope. I don't need anything more than 50MHz bandwidth for what I do but I need low noise, 12 bits and more channels. 8 channels would be nice. 16 would be perfect.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GoRK says:

    The increase in sample rate corresponds to roughly an additional bit (ENOB) so comparing to the R&S is should be about 3 bits (8x) higher resolution measurement. The same goes to the 20mhz bw limit when increasing mV/div. The massive oversampling gives an insane boost to the dynamic range. I’d like to know the ADC they are using; I would be curious to build a radio with it if it’s a COTS part. Also wish you would have fed it some signals closer to its bw limit or at least above 20mhz… If you show it again, please consider roughing it up a bit more.

    Black doesnt match my test instrument color scheme.
