I have read that several places, mostly from not so reliable forums.
This is the most significant I have found.
"Agilent firmware for the DSO1014A has "Rigol Technologies" in the code" http://mightyohm.com/blog/2009/11/agilent-dso1000-firmware-update-confirms-rigol-connection/
I just purchased a Rigol DSO for myself for Christmas I was so impressed, I immediately bought one of their Arbitrary waveform generators also.
I can't veryfy the truth of this, but a local distributor told me that Agilent's low-end scopes are in fact rebadged OEM Rigol models. You can definitely see the similarity in the front panel controls. Can anyone confirm this?
