    Hdmi!! No way, let put the 4k on it

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars M Bak says:

    There are about 6 changes between the front ends of the HDO 1000/4000. Additional components possible others missing or moved.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert says:

    Perhaps most of the cost comes from the work to test and calibrate the higher end model.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wendeltech says:

    What is the margin of keysight 😉

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Leeroy says:

    Wasn't it based on Android?
    If implemented correctly this can ruin the day for your hacker. Locked bootloader, encrypted data storage and good luck trying to make it move..
    Because I suppose FPGA does not have built-in flash and its firmware may be loaded from such Android ARM chip.
    For reference, as big as Nokia presence on phone market now is, there is still no way to root Snapdragon based ones because of locked down bootloader.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars P Visit says:

    699$ ? The model you show is 1699$.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars T L says:

    Maybe it will turn into one of those historical "overclockers dream", like that legendary Celeron 400.

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars feasibletrash0 says:

    yeah, but it's a Rigol

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars popraw a says:

    This is a bet, that free publicity will cover thin margins and they are sure, that it will cover development and manufacturing costs

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jan Brittenson says:

    The top left QR code is gone. And it seems like they changed the silk screen font – check out the "V" in "94V-0" in the board label (moved from center to bottom right). Maybe the voltages didn't look good at their small size with the new font?

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean Breheny says:

    Isn't it $1,699?

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars travis jones says:

    probly the chip sply it's easer to stock smaller num parts

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars O͔͒k͇͂ǘ͇r͔ͪk͓͛ḁͥ says:

    Clickbait title is clickbait.

    The oscilloscope in the video costs $1000 more than what the title says.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Halliday says:

    Shittyer screen and controls, perhaps?

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robin Sattahip says:

    Rigol really is an impressive company.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DB Cooper says:

    Btw Nasa just announced the beginning of their UAP investigation and named the 16 investigators. It might be lame but given that we are being visited by ETs and it has been covered up, they might just wake up and make a key statement and get the ball rolling. Wanna take a ride…

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars DB Cooper says:

    They might not make money on the base model, just foot in the door and bait for bigger, brand loyalty. It makes good sense to have same layout and same processing to save all cost on software and if the chips aren't critically expensive it's just easier to reuse it. Even if you use different ADs the board and software could be virtually identical.
    Also a few parts jumping in the frontends. How much does the AD cost?

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jason Floyd says:

    Model could be written to one-time-programming bits so it can only be one vs another once written.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars muctop says:

    Always same: you do not pay the price that it costs, but R is demanding the price the market is giving!

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brant Wedel says:

    Based on the price difference for mostly the same hardware, I wonder if they are binning during manufacturing 🤔

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pedro_ says:

    I could see this having the full bandwidth and sample rate of the bigger brother when using a single channel with a hacked firmware, noice.

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Mitchell says:

    The biggest difference in the PCB was the copper pour. HDO4000 has copper pour, HDO1000 does not. Why would that be? Cheers, Ian

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kabuki Jo says:

    Watching you void the warranty in 4K excited me deeply. But I will never understand why all the foreign tech peeps always price things in US dollars and rarely in their own local currency.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bert Blankenstein says:

    I guess Rigol avoids the cost of designing a new pcb, but still, I'd agree, people will be looking to hack the FW, perhaps even have Rossmann solder on an additional ADC. They must still be making a couple of bucks at 699.
